"True Amarrians - those directly descendant from the Amarrian ethnic group before
it conquered its home planet and intermingled with other people - are proud and supercilious, with a great sense of
tradition and ancestry
"The Emperor?s position has always had a divine aura surrounding it and this led the Amarrians to belief that the flesh
of the Emperor and other members of the royal families was sacred
. This fact forbids the sacred flesh to be cloned, as the Amarrians consider this to make it impure."
"They [Tash-Murkon family] are very wealthy, having a vast financial empire, but they will always be frowned upon by the traditionalists because they are not 'pure' Amarrians, but Udorians (a continent on Amarr Prime). The social and physical difference between the two disappeared ages ago, but the traditionalists remember."
are also outsiders because they are of Udorian ancestry, not true Amarrians. Yet through their vast wealth they have managed to buy themselves to the top
, head of the Kador family, has intensified the ongoing debate surrounding Catiz Tash-Murkon's acquisition of the Tal-Romon Cathedral on Eclipti****by questioning the heir status of the Tash-Murkon family
. The Tash-Murkons replaced the Khanid family when the latter broke from the Empire following Heideran's election as emperor. The nomination came as a surprise to most, not the least because the Tash-Murkons were Udorians, and thus not of pure Amarrian ancestry. Heideran ruffled a few feathers with his decision and now that he is gone the Kador family seems eager to pick at these old wounds. Five hundred years may have passed, but Amarr Holders have long memories. It seems that Uriam, already at odds with Articio Kor-Azor, is merely using Catiz's plans for the Tal-Romon Cathedral as an excuse to continue a feud that started 500 years ago. At that time many feared the empire was breaking up following Khanid's departure. The same fear seems to be welling up again - but only time can tell if it's justified."

With an Udorian Hier house, truly an Udorian could and most likely WILL one day ascend to the Throne of Amarr.
Would you think his flesh unholy or unworthy then?
Like Uriam Kador I am "questioning the heir status of the Tash-Murkon family". Like Jamyl Sarum I am a "Firm believer in the moral and evolutionary superiority of the Amarrians."
This doesnt mean that other races, once they are enlightened, cant have high positions in amarrian society. But those who vote for giving an Udorian a chance to become next Emperor are the same who will sell
the same status to a wealthy Minmatar, Caldari, Gallente in future. Those who support the Tash-Murkon family support a corrupt leadership where money reigns. True Caldari...
