"Mithos was the super great person who stopped the big, bad Kharlan War. No one knows where he was born or where he grew up. Some people say he came from heaven, where the Goddess Martel lives! Wow! The nasty war started when a group of mean half-elves known as the Desians told a lie. They lied to the human king, and it was very, very naughty of them. When Mithos learned the war was eating up all of the world’s mana, he made everyone stop fighting. Then he joined up with his friends and left in search of a new source of mana. He found the Goddess, and promised her that the people of the world would worship her. In exchange, she blessed the world with mana again. She also sealed away those nasty old Desians so they couldn’t make any more trouble. Ever since, whenever the world’s mana supply gets low, the Desians come back. They set up human ranches to use up even more of what little mana is left! And so now the Chosen goes on a journey of world regeneration, like Mithos did, to meet with the Goddess Martel. They ask her to share her gift of mana with us, and to seal the Desians away again."
