In ages past, surrounded in the darkness of the universe, there was one bound to no time. His creations came to call him Kiem. With his fingers he etched out each star and with a wink blessed them with light. He swept out the confines of his universe, Imaemaroza, with an outstretched arm and molded six worlds with his palm. This was the beginning; time an empty page still to be detailed. Kiem's essence spread throughout the ends of these worlds, and upon each gave he a special power. The element of fire was bequeathed to Fiodora on Zilcemi, Alernoa of Tiweln was bestowed the element of earth, air was given to Eorian on Randor, the element of darkness was received on Ashneer by Raef, light found its home with Jensin on Humsoma, and water, the sixth and final element, rested upon Faencina's shores in the care of Diahyas. Each element was born into the worlds through one being. It was to the fellow creatures of this being that the old language of Kiem persevered to become the native tongue. Those bestowed with elemental power were to keep the peace on their chosen worlds until the time came for them to unite and allow the combined elements to restore tranquility to Kiem's Imaemaroza.
