Once, a very long time ago, three kinds of people lived happily among each other.
There were the Kyrii, working people without special skills. They could do no magic and control no elements. They are however very good in fighting and working. They still exist till this day, they own the bars and inns, shops and blacksmiths, they are the royals and the beggars, lowerclass, middleclass and upperclass normal people.
There were the Asral, people who possessed such pure mind and soul that they became practitioners of witchcraft and sorcery. They are feared and admired by many but they seldom have many friends, they are first-class loners. Nevertheless, they still exist in the forms of doctors, clerics, priests and witches, sorcerers and gypsy's.
Then there were the Elmai, these were the children of the elements. In the beginning only 6 elements existed, but by intertwining throughout the years others began to form. From Earth, Wind, Water, Fire, Light and Darkness came Electricity, Plants, Animal, Heat, Cold, Time, Space, Mind and Shade.
Many years ago, a man, whose name nobody can remember, came to this world. Many people thought his speeches, which were mostly against Elmai and Asral were ridiculous, well that was before he started brainwashing people. The Kyrii started lynching Elmai and Asral, the Asral started hunting down the Elmai as well, though with little to no effect. Until Hate, as people called that strange Gnelf, released information about elmais weak spots.
About 200 years passed when Kyrii and Asral found peace, thinking all Elmai were exterminated. Hate was murdered as soon as the Great War was over, but at least his dream, had come true. People killed him as they did not agree with his opinions any longer, oh, and they found out he was the perfect mixture as well.
He had the blood of the Kyrii, the mind of the Asral and the soul of an Elmai (his element was Mind).
Though, somewhere in the game you may be able to find the real Prophecy and then you may understand where this is going.
