> The beginnings of our story stretch far back through the eons of time to a strange point in the development of the universe. Throughout time and space, five beings came together at the center of all worlds to grow in strength and knowledge. During their study, the five beings grew in might and wisdom to a point where no other lifeforms could be considered their rivals.
> Though they grew to share a common level of power, they differed greatly in their personalities. As their sojourn of study continued, the five beings found that they each became the embodiment of their true character. Standor became the embodiment of Power and Light Hope represented his namesake. The Goddess took on will and strength of character. The Unnamed One represented Fear and Hunger while the Faceless One became Despair.
> Reaching the zenith of their abilities, the five decided to go their separate ways. They all searched out different worlds to pass on their teachings to and help shape the universe. Standor went to world of Primus while Light Hope sought out Etheria. The Goddess traveled to Eternia and was followed by the Unnamed One. The Faceless One stayed in the center. As the embodiment of despair, he felt no desire in doing anything. Keeping himself hidden in a void, the Faceless One watched and brooded as his counterparts began their work. In his shadow, the world beneath him would one day become the home to the Horde Empire. Without any true guidance, the Horde would seek to destroy anything and everything as they would be lifeforms without hope.
