Angelion was a king known for his superior intellect, but had a secret only he knew about. When he became jealous of anyone, another personality of his arose, a much more violent one.
What have I done..
One day Ayanisus, a man who constantly questioned Angelion's ruling, began to rival Angelion's knowledge. After an argument about a new law Angelion had put into place, he decided to send Ayanisus to jail.
Why like this..?
Angelion hears citizens talking in the streets about how his wife had been seen with Ayanisus just days before he was put into confinement.
Angelion loses control of his sanity and kills Ayanisus in his own jail cell out of spite and realizes his actions too late. Upon hearing the news, Angelion's wife takes her own life knowing if she confessed her love for Ayanisus it would only cause more pain.
Angelion could not take the guilt of both being betrayed by his own wife and the death of the innocent inmate Ayanisus. He realized too late that his wrath had been his own demise, for it was something he couldn't control. But he could not leave his empire, for their was no one as intelligent as him to rule, so he had to live his life of guilt.
The audience feels bad for Angelion because of his violent personality that he couldn't hide, and that fact that he loved his wife dearly for her to betray him.
