“We are known as the Four Winds. We were the last creations of the gods, and were made in the futile hope for peace. The Wise One, known as An’soru, shields our world from the devastation of nature. He was the first of us, the South Wind. The West Wind, named by his people as Rahn, preserves life itself in all forms—all death is balanced by birth. He is the youngest, and the most innocent. The East Wind, once known as Kü, was made to defend the souls of the dead from all things seen or unseen. And I, the North Wind, the one called the Tempest, protect whomever and whatever I see fit, sometimes nothing at all.

Long ago, before our war, we four brothers walked among man not as one of them, but as beasts of myth and terror, hoping to return to man what he had begun to lose. The eldest among us chose the form of the Lion and taught of wisdom. The youngest, Rahn, embodied innocence as a wild Horse, carrying back the wayward from dark paths. The Dragon, the East Wind, chose the most difficult virtue to represent: faith. I chose the form of a Wolf, and still represent honor, something that perhaps has long disappeared from this land.

In our god-given and self-given purposes we have failed, for twice now our world has nearly been destroyed: first by the God-War over their first creation, Jeihinara, and second by ourselves—the Great War. What lessons we learned from our Makers we learned well, for one brother turned against the rest long ago. It is now clear that our war, the war that has for centuries been at a stalemate, has lasted far too long. The War of Winds must end, but it will not be a Wind who changes the tide of battle—it will be those whom we have sworn to protect and failed. It will be those who take fate into their own hands, and deny the Dragon his dark Empire. It will be those who choose to fight, who refuse to lose, and who will not stand idly by while their world falls to ash once again.”
