After a period where the Hamakar peninsula was under divided rule, they betrayed the Trilui, united it under their rule, conquered the outlying islands, and created a stronger state than had ever existed since the Hamakuan Empire of old. It was a promising start, but the state stagnated and eventually fell to an invasion by the Kothari Exatai.
