Irsu’s destructive Canaanite faction sees no glory in unity and harmony. Some people, as the saying goes, just want to watch the world burn. Irsu strives to bring Egypt to its knees – he’s set on plundering the gold mines, defacing the Valley of Kings and then finding his next conquest. He’s a fatalist, albeit one who strongly believes that he himself is fated to bring about the end of Egypt’s reign. To achieve his goals, he seeks to profit from everyone else’s misfortune, and to him civil war is his greatest opportunity yet. With no interest in monuments or legacy, Irsu’s vision of glory is the ruin of Egypt and all who would rule it in his place.
