Emperor: The American Fathers, Episode 4

Author's Republic

Narrated by Jeff Cummings, Adrianne Cury, and Various

3 hr 2 min

In 2012, no one saw Victor Daco coming. In 2024, he lobbied Congress to turn America's 13 most powerful conglomerates into sovereign regional states, transforming the control that corporations had held for decades over the US government into a formal nobility.

Once the bill was signed into law, it became known as the New Rule. As the wealthiest man in the country, Victor became the most powerful patriarch.

Resistance to the New Rule grew steadily, so by 2032, Victor had created an army to confront it. He dubbed his anti-terrorist force The Fathers. To legally operate drones and transport troops within the United States, Victor began negotiating the terms of an aviation bill with the patriarchs of Second, Third, and Fourth House.

Will the other three patriarchs grant Victor the authority to execute American citizens with impunity and assume ultimate power? What about the other seven patriarchs? Can Victor handle resistance from another noble house while he attempts to make his crackdown on average citizens legal?

Emperor is the fourth episode of "The American Fathers serial".

Read by Adrianne Cury, Amro Salama, Antonio Castillo, Jeff Cummings, Karin Anglin, Kevin Theis, Scott Duff, Steve Downes, and Tony Dobrowolski.

Episode 1

Set in a near future America, the world is a bit different. Powerful houses run the politics, and hence, the country, from behind the scenes. Sworn fealty to a powerful house can bring the average person a decent paying job in a world where society is scrambling to hold it together. Sheila, a smart lass from Tennessee, sees through this BS and is trying to open the public's eyes to this power shift. Meanwhile, the Lebanese congressional correspondent Jasira agrees with Sheila, off the record. Yet, despite Sheila's unarguable attraction to Jasira, she can't help but question Jasira's motives.

Episode 2:

Sheila never expected to meet America's first princess, but Irene Daco is hosting a dinner, and Jasira has invited Sheila to come. That decision would be so much easier if the nature of her relationship with Jasira were clear.

When Sheila agrees to go, she finds her principled opposition to dynasty rule challenged by the things she discovers in the world of America's royal houses.

Does Jasira support the dynasties and their influence upon the government she covers? Or is she, like Sheila, working to turn the country away from contemporary feudalism and back to democracy?

These are the first two episodes of the serial The American Fathers. It involves four dynasties, a Lebanese-American journalist, an impassioned college professor, a security contractor, a flamboyant hitman, a rebel hacker, a megalomaniac, and a smart, idiosyncratic heiress. There are nine episodes in season one. Sheila's point of view is central in "Swept Away," "Dinner Invitation," and "Visitors."
