The Human Kings of Manzan

The first King of Manzan was King Taren III. He was also the least corrupt and longest lived.
He was the King of the Human Kingdom of the past, when the Oracle of Fugaz told him the Goblin Gate, which had opened many years past, had was going to continue spitting out goblins for as long as he could see in the future- at least 250 years.
He ruled for the next 34 years on Manzan, bringing as much of his people as he could to the new city.
The next King was his son, King Taren IV, or Taren the Tyrant. He was also very caring, but lacked his fathers charisma. He gave all stragglers on the mainland a simple choice- come to Manzan or die. He was assassinated 5 years later, but his work was done- he had brought every major city from the Human Kingdom into Manzan, leaving his nephew a complete kingdom.
The next King was King Sidus I. King Sidus became King at only 13 years old, but grew up very quickly, serving as a great King for 61 years. His reign brought a lot of rules that made life on a floating metropolis much better, even bringing agriculture to the cliff sides- making the land self sustaining.
King Sidus II followed in his father’s footsteps, but did not have the same gusto as his predecessors, and was the only King to have a brothel in the palace. He improved upon the agriculture and cleaned up a few laws, but was unpopular and lazy. Safire hated the fat racist King even more than his subjects, and forced him to allow the remaining Mattin and Kitsune into his city. It had taken the humans almost 40 years to come to Manzan. The influx of warring goblins had become so bad the scattered Kitsune and Mattin refugees arrived in less than five years. After Sidus II set up a number of racist laws he ended his 26 year reign by dying of syphilis.
King Jotten I was repulsed by his fathers debauchery, and quickly replaced his father’s brothel with a Kitsune Sun Temple. King Jotten I became incredibly devout, pushing sun worship onto the masses with tax breaks and festivals during his 46 year reign. He also gave Kitsune a number of special privileges, giving them almost exclusive control over religion, the east cliff face of the city, and healing temples. Unfortunately, the Mattin received no such breaks, and many began to resent their overlord, moving to the sewers and under city where they began to niche out necromantic food growth as a source of income.
King Taren V, a devout follower of the sun like his dad, continued his system. The only thing of note in his reign was the abuse of necromantic farming, using a 4 year drought as an excuse to put many mousefolk farmers into poverty as their stores were confiscated by the government before he was assassinated by a Kitsune assassin after 15 years as King.
His nephew, King Jotten II, also known as Fat Jotten by his subjects, has ruled for 19 years. He has ruthlessly forced the Mattin to provide food for lavish festivals, and taken much of the east cliffs back from the Kitsune. Humans have little love for him as well, as he forces his laws to be followed with brutal massacres of large groups of transgressors. He has numerous princes waiting to take his place- and thousands of knives waiting for his blood.
