Earth, Air, Fire, and Water
It began a millennia ago. Gods, which have since gone quiet, took a liking to humankind. Finding them to be an endearing species, they bestowed gifts upon them. Each human on earth was gifted with one power over an element upon birth. The fire-born, with their extrovert personalities and natural gift to lead; the water-born, smooth talking and easily the most reasonable of the element wielders. Then the air-born, with flighty personalities, a great sense of humor, and a high sense of justice. Lastly, the earth-born; a calm and quiet folk, with abilities that were subtle if not powerful. Each element was important, an integral part in how the world was shaped. As the years went by, like bred with like, seeking to bring out specific element powers from their young to make them more powerful. Water and earth born soon began to appear in lesser and lesser numbers, until one day the earth born were almost completely forgotten; leaving almost none to be found. This is one of their stories.
