The myth of creation
In the great beginning, there existed 2 Gods,
the god of destruction Vergilius, and the goddess of
creation, Rea. Vergilius with his cunning deception
captures and binds Rea, abusing her power to
create the "world of emptiness" and his loyal army
named "Mui clan".
Blinded by the beauty of Rea, Pharakeleus,
the most trusted guardian of Vergilius , frees Rea. The goddess Rea then
creates the first physical world of "Iveria" to stand against Vergilius.
Having to create 8 guardian angels to protect Iveria, Rea drained all energy
and enters into deep sleeping phase of recovery.
The great war
After long painful search of Rea, Vergilius finally discovers "Iveria". He then orders his deadly army "Mui Clan" for the complete destruction. Honorable eight guardian angels of Iveria successfully fought back and protected the Avalon(Rea's hovering sky garden) . Some lives of defeated Mui were spared after the war. They became the loyal servant of guardians.
Peace was short lived. When the goddess Rea has awakened, her stunning beauty has turned all 8 guardian angels into selfish beasts trying to claim her. All 8 guardians of earth, water, fire, wind, thunder, light, darkness, and Iron asserted themselves for the most contribution during war.
8 guardians continued days and nights to claim the love of Rea. One day, a Mui servant came forward with a solution.
"Respected master guardians, I have 7 clear crystals and 1 purple crystal in this very box in front of me. All of you are equally great heroes, not one being better than others. Please draw one crystal from this box, and accept your faith to choose purple crystal. The chosen one shall claim the right to love goddess Rea."
It seemed fair and all guardians sworn to accept destiny. This was a deceptive plot of a Mui servant, Parakilius. Parakilius was the one who loved Rea to free her from the god of destruction Vergilius.
Instead of 1 purple crystal, there were 2 purple crystals in the box. Both the guardian of light 'Palkenhein' and the guardian or Iron 'Lukipere' had purple crystals. 3 guardians honored Palkenhein, yet the other 3 honored Lukipere. The bloody war broke out among 8 guardians and this war is known as the "War of Lagrangulia". Six guardians died in this war, leaving Palkenhein and Lukipere at confront.
It was too late when both Palkenhein and Lukipere realized the conspiracy of Pharakeleus. Swarm of Mui clan initiated its attack. Both guardians fought to the death protecting Rea. Rea was saved but she vanishes without a trace.
