Council of Corruption

King Achashverosh
King Achashverosh
Supreme Leader of Corruption

The royal king sits at the head of the largest empire in the world, all while spending his days immersed in wild partying and completely ignoring the needs of his constituents.

Haman the Rasha
Minister of Evil

Viewed by himself as the wisest of all men, Haman applies all his wit to concoct conniving schemes that catapult him to greatness at the expense of everyone around him.

Ten Sons of Haman
Ten Sons of Haman
Assistants of Evil

Like loyal puppets on strings, Haman’s sons fulfill every whim and desire of their father, hoping to bask in his reflected glory (and afraid of fatal consequences should they disobey.)

Zeresh, Wife of Haman
Acrimony Advisor

Winner of the “Worst Wife of the Year” Award, Zeresh alternates between providing Haman with very risky ideas and hacking away at his ego relentlessly.

Happy Citizens

I am proud to call myself a member of the greatest empire in the world, the Persian empire! Of course, I have a very happy life. This testimonial is entirely voluntary.

Bijan, son of Alborz

Since I was a little girl, I always loved the Persian Empire. And since King Achashverosh took over, I understand what a majestic empire it once was. Please do not read too deeply into my statement.

Azar Istakharni

These tears streaming down my face are tears of happiness! I am so grateful that the very last of my crop will be used at the royal party, leaving my family with nothing to eat. We are honored to be so unceremoniously used to provide extravagance for the king.

Parviz Kermani

There is no greater wisdom than that which is rained down upon us daily from the Royal Palace. Each morning, I anticipate the deep, profound things I will be able to pontificate upon all day.
