From the Yu-Shan book:
On 7 Ascending Water, 764, Lytek sent the following message directly to Chejop Kejak, with copies delivered to every divisional head in Yu-Shan: “It is my very great pleasure to inform you that the Solar Exalted have returned.”
- To clarify: Lytek is the god of Celestial Exaltation, and one of the most senior deities in heaven. During the Usurpation, several Sidereals attacked and restrained him in order to capture the Exaltations of the slain Solars as they returned to him. In essence, this was Lytek giving a massive middle finger to the Sidereals for the entire Usurpation, and for their actions against him in particular.
- Even better was Chejop Kejak's reaction. After storming over to Lytek's offices and finding him guarded by eight celestial lions and two lesser elemental dragons who only allowed him in after an invasive search of his person, he learned that the Solar Exaltations had started reincarnating earlier that year. Lytek smugly informed him that he'd simply wanted the Exaltations polished up before informing anyone. Not to mention the measures taken to make sure nothing like the Usurpation could happen again:
Kejak’s rage upon hearing this report only worsened when he investigated the assignment of Lytek’s new security detail. The powerful guards protecting the Right Hand of Power were each assigned by different deities, ranging from the three Syndics to Ahlat to Wun Ja, the Director of Humanity. Even deities who were not particularly opposed to the Bronze Faction or the Dragon-Blooded still remembered how rudely Lytek was manhandled during the Usurpation, and the blunt show of force served to show that it would not be tolerated again.
Again from the Yu-Shan book: Ryzala, Goddess of Paperwork and Bureaucracy in the Bureau of Heaven with a jones for messing with the Bureaus of Nature and Humanity, launched a formal initiative to have Nasri the storm serpent removed from office as Head of the Bureau of Seasons, to be replaced with someone more to her liking. Nasri warned Ryzala that her efforts were not appreciated, and sent a squadron of storm serpents to threateningly circle the Hall of Heavenly Stability. Ryzala scoffed at the suggestion that Nasri might order the Aerial Legion to attack the very offices of the Bureau of Heaven. And she was right — the serpents were only there to distract attention from the real attack.
That night, dozens of freak tornadoes struck all across Creation. Although the storms were powerful, they were mercifully brief, and the casualties were limited... very limited. Across Creation, the tornadoes damaged only accountancy schools, scriveners’ offices, and tax assessors. In one night, over 300 of Creation’s most skilled mortal bureaucrats were dead, many of them with prayers to Ryzala, the Lady of Bureaucracy and Paperwork, on their last breaths. Shocked to realize that Nasri was prepared to target Ryzala’s mortal followers, to the point of stamping out literacy if need be, Ryzala backed down, too shaken to even call for an audit of Nasri’s highly illegal intrusion into Creation.
