Many ages ago, the wife of a great prophet gave birth to twin boys. The older brother was named Bang, and the younger brother was named Long.
Long was a gifted child, with talents that his community highly valued. Long became a beloved boy who could turn one loaf of bread into many. He was rumored to be an alchemist too, and the legends say he could transform dust into precious gold. Long was known to bring good luck with him everywhere.
The older twin, Bang, was quite different than his younger, more popular sibling. Bang was not a productive talent, but instead Bang was destructive. Bang could wilt the petals of a flower with his gaze and with just one hard stare he could turn green grasses withered and brittle. The community feared this boy named Bang. They agreed he was an outcast, and a misfit.
Bang was eager to grown strong, but his peers avoided him, and he had no friends. No teacher dared to train him. That is, until the The Red Burning Legion accepted Bang for who he was and the power he possessed.
Bang betrayed his village and vowed to make them all live the rest of their lives in fear. Long was deeply saddened by his brother’s betrayal and separation from the tribe. However, being a courageous leader, Long wiped his tears and prepared to fight his estranged brother, for the good of his people. A war horn blew a shrill and eerie warning of imminent battle.
