Skyward Saga

Chapter Text

Long ago there was a great battle waged for the land. It raged ceaselessly for many days and nights, causing the air to turn to smoke, rain to ash, water to blood, and earth to graves. Demise, determined to reign over all, declared his war, naming it Ragnarok much to the fear of the people who defended their homes and the Goddess Freya and her brother Freyr.

Demise sought their eternal power over the people that served them, not sated by what he himself already possessed, closing in on the ethereal siblings as they tried with their might to defend what they held dear, an ability like no other: The power to change reality and mold it into whatever the caster most desired.
