Emperor is inspired by the legend of the slave Shields "Emperor" Green, a descendant of an African king, who became outlawed during the American Civil War. With a burning desire to win his family's freedom, he fought his way north, where he took part in the attack on Harpers Ferry in the struggle for the liberation of slaves.
