Shah Achaemenid is currently the ideological ruler of what humans might consider the Persian empire. Precisely what he is isn’t clear; he considers himself one of the People of the Sun due to his healing touch, which can cure any wound, but no one is quite sure of his species.

He maintains the form of a middle-aged humanoid male, mostly unremarkable, though his irises are known to glow red during thunderstorms. Those few who’ve tried to rebel against him were struck by lightning.

Fortunately, not many bother to rebel.
