      1. In Episode 1, the Nurbal and other exiles from Niarba depart their home star system through an ancient portal, finding a ruined but still habitable old colony world beyond it.
      2. In Episode 2, conflicts begin to arise between the Nurbal and the other Ehrban nations who have accompanied them, which Amouch tries to keep from becoming violent.
      3. In Episode 3, Amouch delicately mediates between the Nurbal and the leaders of the other nations, crafting a new constitution protecting the rights of the non-Nurbal minorities.

      3. In Episode 3, Amouch is ousted from political office, and after much introspection begins to find a new place for himself in society as a link to their cultural heritage.
    3. In Part 3, the colonists give full autonomy to their AI against Amouch's warnings, prompting him to go into stasis in case his magical power is needed against the AI in the future.

      3. In Episode 3, the colonists decide to go ahead with full automation, and as the details of doing so are hashed out, Amouch goes into stasis to serve as a safeguard against its inevitable failure.
