Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind Wiki

The Vai Emperor is the king of Torumekia and Kushana's step-father as he succeeded the previous Emperor and marrying his widow until being driven mad from drinking the poisoned wine intended for her daughter she had from previous Emperor as a means to secure his throne. Furthermore, The Vai Emperor conspires with the Three Princes to force Kushana to rebel when ordered to invade Dorok during the Periphery Campaign [1]. Despite he and the Three Princes sharing blood relations and common goal, he showed little to no care to them to the point of seeing them as usurpers than actual heirs.

He plays an important role in the end of the manga, protecting Nausicaa from the crypt's light [2] before dying [3], after giving Kushana advice not to kill any of the royal court since "kill a single one and you will end up as I did, killing and killing again" [4].
