At the beginning of time, the Island was created. The Mythical beings thrived there in complete balance, peace and harmony. After many prosperous times, the Elements became restless and broke the harmony. They all wanted to conquer the Island with their own elemental power.
Chaotic times began and one by one, the Mythical beings were forced to leave. The Island was in urgent need of regeneration, so the legendary Protectors were summoned. By using their special powers, the Protectors securely re-arranged the landscape. Their task was to calm the elements and restore the balance, enabling the Mythical beings to return back home.
In order to maintain continuous stability, the Protectors agreed to reward the most successful Protector as the Guardian of Mythical Island…
