It was not so long ago, yet not so far away,
From the days of Cerestra's ascension,
When a fallen warrior brought hope through contention,
Before undead took hold of Menthor's,
'fore dark of night could creep indoors,

Before the fall of Eteric's forests to bandits, ill, and ogres, shrill,
There lived a goodly giant, still,
A burning heart of truth and love,
Such could compare to a lonesome dove.

A wounded champion, at his core,
But living for what he could not ignore,
Seeing with the fall of Tyllar's champion, in her grace,
Seeing then the rise of something lovely in her place.

A new day had begun for him, a new day for us all.
And as he grew, he knew inside that days of peace were but a score.

Thus the man, the giant in all; body, mind, and soul,
Took up a might blade that none else could wield before.

With it in his mighty grips, he went and found the little wimps,
The bandits, goblins, ogres, and his kin...
Those that would set aflame the land of Etaric from within.

He felled the bandit king, with one swipe of his sword.
He tossed aside the chieftain of the ogres right and sure.
He fought away his brothers, claiming them to be a sore,
A fester and a wound upon the world, so tells our lore...

And in it all, the champion of Cerestra's heart was true.
Within a year, his leadership brought giants to his woo.

The King of all forest, King Burjon, Knight of Pure.
The King who would protect the land from evil wills and wars.

But as it's written in such tales,
As we've heard so much in wails
Of paladins' laments...

So we must tell that power, it would seem, corrupts events...
And even those we see as champions, even those that live for love,
Can fall, as a wounded dove,
When tested at the core.

The King of Giants, King of Kings, Lord of all was right,
Took up his sword and marched upon the city in the night...

His mighty blade did not fall upon the wicked, but the weak...
His gaze was now on glory, for his own, and not the meek.

And perhaps this day we could have seen the fires burning still,
Had not a champion intervened, one he'd forgotten in his thrill...

You are no longer worthy of my light, foul fiend of dark!

...cried out Cerestra, in her rage, as her blade cut through his heart...

For this impudence of mind and deed, I banish you into your cave. Let never the light of day see your face again, into your oldest age... For even should your heart repent, even should you beg, I shall never like to know you as a villain or a friend. Your days, they will be long, as you dwell within the grime. And your death shall ne'er come, until the day I've seen you punished fully for your crime. Begonia, foul beast, and keep your title, "King," for you it will be saved. King of all that lurks the dark, King Burjon, King of Knaves.

And so unto this day, this King still lurks the dark...
Those giants that did serve him share his binding for their work.

And any who should seek to claim the treasures that he saved,
Shall meet the blade of Burjon, King Burjon, King of Knaves...
