For many millenniums ago there was two Gods known as Cyxia (Time) and Xelphos (Space). These two was believed to be the Time & Space dimensions in Universe by humanity, who Cyxia and Xelphos had created together thousands of years earlier. But before they created the humans and the land of Anorien, they created several other things:
*3 Worlds: The Eternal World, Ominia (the world of Anorien) and Paradise.
*The Tree Kings.
The Tree Kings were first placed in Paradise by Cyxia and Xelphos, but as they understood that they had a purpose they begun to magicaly fall down from Paradise and land in Eternal World to protect The Humans.The Gods didn't see that the humans, who lived in Eternal World, needed protection but they agreed with the whise Tree Kings as they fell down from Paradise to protect the Immortal Humans. But as darkness spred in the hearts of the Immortal Humans, Cyxia and Xelphos used the Holy Tree of Tree Soul Kingdom to transfer the Immortal Humans out from Eternal World, to Anorien, and punish them with mortal bodies. The Gate of Immortality who led to the Eternal World, was locked for good... And since then has the Holy Tree ruled the Tree Soul Kingdom fair and in light..CharactersParty Characters:
