Esarhaddon planned to transform the Enclave into a political entity and attempt the conquest of the land. He had made contacts with the bandit leader Furifax in order to spare the Enclave from the rebellion.
Esarhaddon was young and impulsive, brilliant but impatient. He wanted Unther to become a magocracy and hated Gilgeam. He was so impatient that he might decide to support Furifax's plans. Esarhaddon was more interested in politics than magical research.
