Ushanghal motZanelek "Sea Rider, the first Emperor" was the first Zanelek and founder of the Ushanghalin Empire, which bears his name. His influence over preclassical and classical Kakhor cannot be overstated and grew to mythical proportions shortly after his reign.
He is most well known for his epic journeys by sea to unite the various population centers of Peroatlans around the northern Atlan Sea and Perocadh Peninsula. An inspiring leader and societal reformer, he was deified and revered for millenia after his death. His Empire and descendants would father two more of the greatest empires to rule on Doara, and the dominance of Peroatlan culture on Kakhor for more than 3 millenia.
