Murai first met Yang Wenli while a commander assigned to investigate the mutiny at Econia. Murai's impartiality and attention to details led him to conclude that Lt. Commander Yang was the more credible side in the incident.
spoilerAfter the death of Yang, Murai left Iserlohn and returned to Heinessen as a private citizen. By doing so he swayed lukewarm supporters of the nascent Republic the opportunity to leave, stripping the numbers down to a hard core. He also felt it was time for his generation to step aside and allow younger leaders to carry on.
Unexpectedly, Murai was selected by Oskar von Reuenthal as an civilian emissary to Julian Mintz to ask that that the Iserlohn Corridor be closed to Imperial traffic during von Reuenthal's rebellion.
