Banof burns with ambition. To save his people, he must kill his empress. He lacks the power to do so on his own. Illera holds the karyon. With that, Banof could be all but unstoppable. He doesn't want to kill Illera, but neither can he afford to lose the karyon. If he has to chase her across the entire south, he will.
