Best Served Cold Edit
Duke Lirozio and the other members of The League of Eight attend a peace conference in Sipani organised by King Jezal of The Union. However, the conference falls apart when Duke Orso's son, Prince Ario, is assassinated in Cardotti’s House of Leisure.
Lirozio has always been a staunch and warlike ally of the league, while Duke Orso’s forces were far from the walls of Puranti. However, after the fall of Visserine, he immediately surrendered to Duke Orso.
After Grand Duke Rogont defeats the Talinese army near Ospria, Lirozio slipped nimbly back into Rogont’s camp. With some resignation, Duke Lirozio is amongst the city-state rulers who are to crown Rogont the King of all Styria, along with Chancellor Sotorius of Sipani, Patine of Nicante, Cotarda of Affoia, and Monza Murcatto, now Grand Duchess of Talins. However, the crown is poisoned by the master poisoner Castor Morveer, who is now working for Orso's backers Valint & Balk. During the ceremony, moments after the crown is placed on Rogont's head, Lirozio and all of the city-state rulers including Rogont fall down dead, except for Monza who is saved by the glove she always wears on her crippled hand.
After his death, Puranti was thrown into civil war.
