“This is but one of the legends of which the
Long ago, there existed a kingdom where
a golden power lay hidden.
It was a prosperous land blessed with green
forests, tall mountains, and peace.
But one day a man of great evil found the
golden power and took it for himself…
With its strength at his command, he
spread darkness across the kingdom.
But then, when all hope had died, and the
hour of doom seemed at hand…
…a young boy clothed in green appeared
as if from nowhere.
Wielding the blade of evil’s bane, he sealed
the dark one away and gave the land light.
This boy, who traveled through time to save
the land, was known as the Hero of Time.
The boy’s tale was passed down through
generations until it became legend…
But then…a day came when a fell wind
began to blow across the kingdom.
The great evil that all thought had
been forever sealed away by the hero…
…once again crept forth from the depths of
the earth, eager to resume its dark designs.
The people believed that the Hero of Time
would again come to save them.
…But the hero did not appear.
Faced by an onslaught of evil, the people
could do nothing but appeal to the gods.
In their last hour, as doom drew nigh, they
left their future in the hands of fate.
What became of that kingdom…?
None remain who know.
The memory of the kingdom vanished, but
its legend survived on the wind’s breath.
On a certain island, it became customary to
garb boys in green when they came of age.
Clothed in the green of fields, they aspired
to find heroic blades and cast down evil.
The elders wished only for the youths to
know courage like the hero of legend…”
