His name is not known, nor is it important. He was the son of peasants, born on Hathengar, who kept the New Faith even in the dark days of the Shadow Emperor's destruction of the last outer kingdom. In his youth, a Messenger came to him, and told him he was the destined Savior of the World, whose arrival in the hour of mankind's greatest need was long awaited. For ten years, the Savior was taught in the ways of the Messengers, and he fused their ancient wisdom with the spirit of the Tarsin race. 

It was he who launched the Salvation of the World, one day in a town square not far from where he was born. Within thirty years, he lead the greatest fleet ever assembled in a final, desperate attack on Tarsis, striking at the Shadow Emperor himself. Their losses were grievous, in life and in treasure, but victory was had. The Savior, mortally wounded, appointed a new Emperor, and a father to watch over the faithful, and said he would return again, before passing from this life. This was how the second Empire began, and it continues to this day.
