|This is a tale of days when demons tormented the world.
The Kingdom of Aleid, nestled in a quiet valley, basked in
peace. For water, the people found it necessary to visit
the valley bottom. Tales of encounters with demons there
increased, though, causing much fear. And when the people
who went to the valley for water failed to return, the
feared name Golvellius...once used to scare bad
children...was whispered from stall to stall in the
marketplace. And the valley of life now became called "The
Valley of Doom."
|So deep was his concern for his people, King Aleid fell
severely ill. Only an herb named "Mea", found at the
valley bottom, could save the king.
|Over all objections, princess Rena went in search of the
herb, but failed to return. Fear and unrest among the
people only continued to grow.
|Then a wandering lad with wild green hair and a taste
for adventure came into the village. His name was Kelesis,
which in the language of the kingdom of Aleid meant, "Bane
of Demons." Kelesis listened to the story of the missing
Princess. He listened to the terrible legends of
Golvellius. Then he looked at a picture of Princess Rena
and fell in love. After that, there was no stopping him.
He went down into the valley depths in search of Rena.
There, Kelesis found the entrance to a strange cave in a
dying valley river...
