I am three eps into Relics of an Emissary and it's such fun!



I spent most of the first ep wanting to massacre the protagonist, who is basically the ancient equivalent of a police captain. He is hated by his subordinates and his targets alike, and his methods of questioning witnesses freak out even the other guards. If he had a conscience, it got lost somewhere a long time, submerged in brutality, ruthlessness, bribe-taking, lechery and other good things. Luckily for us all, at the end of ep 1, there is a big explosion on the boat he is on and, while he is the sole survivor, he loses his memory and somehow acquires an awesome personality. He is still an amazing fighter and good at crime-solving, he is also (probably for the first time in his life) not a bastard. In fact, he is kinda righteous. Someone should have whacked him a long time ago.

Throw in palace coup, a gorgeous eunuch (seriously, such a waste!), a scheming royal or two, a feisty princess with a fondness for cross-dressing and loathing of the hero, and the mystery what exactly happened on that boat, and we are set for a fun fun ride!

Caps from first three eps )

Anyway, great fun!
