Long ago four Gods created life, Er’tor shaped the land, Sie’lan filled the oceans, Gal’tha carried the seeds of life on a gale and Ral’ja incubated the land so life could blossom. Over time it’s inhabitants could provide for themselves and the gods took to the heavens to watch over the land. One god remained. Jei’tho, the god of chaos wasn’t included in the process and resented his siblings so he began to wreak havoc on the land in the form of plagues, earthquakes and tornadoes. The gods, being unable to harm one another, called to the people to the land to send their strongest warriors to battle Jei’tho.
The people of the land held competitions to decide who their greatest warrior was and eventually one man bested all his opponents. This man was sent to the mountain to the west where Jei’tho resided and fought the angry God. Eventually the disasters subsided and the god was slain, though no one heard from the warrior and thought him dead. A tradition was formed and a tournament was set up every few years to find the land's greatest warrior.
