He had his neck slit by one of Nale's Skybreakers while they were trying to capture Lift. Lift then Surgebound him back to life using her Surge of Progression. He was then pronounced Prime Aqasix by the attending viziers because he supposedly performed the miracle of Regrowth.
According to Lift, those within the palace expect all kinds of things of their new emperor. Lessons, displays. People come to watch him at every meal. They watch him sleeping.
Further, about Gawx, she tells Mik that people pick his nose for him. That Gawx has a woman who does his hair, and that she sticks something up his nose, like little tweezers used to grab his boogies.
Lift tells Ghenna that those in Azir (likely referring to the viziers in the Bronze Palace) changed his name ... that Gawx is kind of a dumb name ... and one doesn't want one's emperor to sound dumb, but that one can't stop that if he starts talking.
Much later, via spanreed through Ghenna, Gawx sends a message to Lift in which he indicates that his empire will survive the storm that had passed through it, but that it will take long to recover, particularly if the storm keeps returning. He is also concerned with the issue with the parshmen, which he believes could prove to be an even greater danger.
Prime Aqasix Yanagawn the First, emperor of all Makabak, is no longer embarrassed while talking to the viziers and scions. He understands much of what they discuss now, and doesn't jump when someone calls him "Your Majesty." Remarkably, he has started to forget that he'd ever been a frightened thief sneaking through the palace.
