block 1

Karmaveeran gains consciousness. Wakes up injured in the right hand, sword by the side, and memory loss.

Notices a huge free in the far horizon and a river flowing down from there.

Intends to head down the river and then towards the tree.

block 2 – 

Hears a loud shriek. Discovers an ancient mystical beast on a rampage in a village in the forest.  Villagers attack the beast.

However, KV became curious about the beast. The villagers allege that the beast had been kidnapping kids from the village and devouring them.

Curious, he begins to follow the blood trail and investigate.

block 3 -

KV discovers a cave, in which there lived an entire race of the beasts. Multiple varieties. There he learns about the ancient mystical beasts and their history intertwined with the history of the kingdom itself, Kumari Kandam.


block 4 – Fun & Games/Old vs New

by the end of this block, KV wins the heart of the people. He gets arrested by the national guards, alleging that he's a spy from a neighboring country.

block 5 –

Introduction of Manu Dharman. KV is summoned to the court of MD for violating the code of conduct and breaching national security.

block 6 – 

Trial by combat with mystical beast. KV has to prove himself pure of heart/innocent. In the fierce battle, he not only won over the beast but also revealed a talisman/tattoo which indicates that he is the rightful heir to the throne.

The people cheer. This puts MD in a difficult spot. His ego is scarred.


block 7 – Manu Dharman inherently believes that KV somehow learned the past and faking it as the heir. He conspires to kill KV. MD hires contracts killers from allied nation.

block 8 – It becomes clear that the person who injured KV is the king of allied country, Duriyothana. Revelation of the secret past.

block 9 – battle / climax / resolution

KV earns his place on the throne.

Need backstory for these.

Tree of Life?

Ancient beast?
