DamarWulan was born in the village of PaluhAmba, not far from the capital city of

Majapahit. He was the son of Udara, the former prime minister of Majapahit. Since
his father had retired his family live in a quiet and prosperous village outside the
capital. When his father thought that he is mature enough, he asked Damar to find
job in Majapahit. He told Damar to apply for a job at the Prime Minister's office
At midday he got to Majapahit and he directly went to the prime minister's house.
Prime Minister Logender was his name
The guards sarcastically questioned him when he told them he would see the prime
minister. 'Who do you think you are?' 'I am DamarWulan. I am the son of the former
prime ministerUdara
My father told me to see the prime minister here' 'If you think you can impress us by
telling us about your father, you are completely wrong poor boy. The son of a prime
minister would never go anywhere on foot' 'But, that's true. My father told me to find
job here' 'Listen poor boy, the prime minister is a very busy person. He does not
have time for job seeker like you. But if you need a job, there is a vacant position
here. Let me report my chief' Then the soldier reported to his superior.
After that someone called Damar to get into the commander's chamber. He told
Damar that the prime minister's office needed several boys to take care of the
horses. Damar was surprised because he expected clerical job but then he accepted
the offer. Since that day he lived in a simple hut behind the prime minister's house.
Damar did a good job so his superior was satisfied with him. He was also very
sociable. Soon he had a good relationship with the prime minister and his family. The
prime minister had two sons - LayangSeto and LayangKumitir and a daughter Anjasmoro. His sons were very arrogant and lazy. They treated Damar cruelly. They
wanted Damar to do whatever they want. Every body hated them but nobody dare to
express their feeling. Anjasmoro, on the other hand, liked Damar very much.
Gradually she fell in love to Damar. So did Damar. They had a secret love. When
LayangSeto and LayangKumitir knew what happened to Damar and Anjasmoro, they
were very angry
At the time the kingdom of Majapahit faced a very serious problem because of the
rebellion of MenakJinggo. He was a half brother of the Queen KeconoWungu. He
was a prince of Majapahit and a highly respected general of the Majapahit army.
