To conclude this series, we present you the Sublime Gate and two of its great heroes, Kaan and Kain.
The Sublime Gate

Since Roxelane had Ibrahim Pasha, her main rival, decapitated, there is nothing more to oppose her power, except perhaps Mustafa, the Sultan's eldest son from a previous marriage.
Kaan and Kain
A Christian peasant living on a planet of the Sacred Alliance, Kaan was captured by the army of Mustafa, the eldest son of the Sultan, when he was still only a child. He was then chosen among the slaves to become a janissary, an elite soldier in the armies of the Sublime Gate. Converted to Islam and re-baptized, he soon made his mark and became friends with his commander Mustafa, who cloned him as a reward, giving Kaan's double the name Kain. It is said that the two generals have since become inseparable, but the mysterious Roxelane, bitter enemy of Mustafa, swore she would prove this untrue...
