Once a long time ago, the Elemental Masters gathered in halls to meet about the fate of the world. They gathered with their servants to proceed in their existence. The ‘Elemental Masters’ were humans with excessive amounts of magical energy making them ageless.
Of the Elemental Masters were those who reigned superior to the nearly invincible race—the ones known as Grand Masters—nine of them. Elemental Masters held the ability to keep a ‘servant’ with them. The servant would be directly linked to their masters—sharing in the life-force allowing an ordinary man, or woman, live as long as their master did or allowed them to.
One of the Grand Masters named Terian was one who believed in only keeping one servant. However, as well to an ‘ordinary’ man who served him, he had other Elemental Masters and other ordinary men whom followed him freely as free-will servants. Those who followed Terian lived in a village at the base of the tower that Terian had claimed as his base. The monsters on Terian’s side lived in a small village at the base of Terian’s Tower.
People feared the Elemental Masters due to misunderstanding of the power and reasoning they held. Yet, like the Elemental Masters, one race, the Shikajins, were feared because they were the strongest of all the ordinary races. This race, of all the races on the planet, was in direct links with the Elemental Masters. Even the Royal Family—the Zrerecros family—served Elemental Masters. At the correct age, an individual would chose to join with an Elemental Master and serve them accordingly.
Depending on ones choice as a servant depended on their destination. For example, so would end up in the village at the base of Terian’s tower.
Even I lived in that village at one time…but it seems like a distant memory to me. For me, to even think of Terian as a single person anymore feels rather strange to me. I really don’t know the story from start to finish. Though I am the oldest of the entire race of Elemental Masters, I could not begin to tell you the reasons everything happened.
All I know is that fate can lead to some strange occurrences…
