Although, at the time, Ventuma existed under a state of self rule there had been a time in their not too distant past where they had been ruled by one man, a superhuman who ruled through fear and hate not love.
Angsama IV, was originally a wise emperor of the winds, a title which at that time was bestowed upon the high kings of Ventuma. Before his birth, some sakaeli monks predicted that the heir to the throne would be a being endowed with such extraordinary qualities that he could lead Ventuma to a great new destiny, or if corrupted could lead them to perdition.
From birth, Angsama was endowed with great strength, capable of lifting huge rocks with no apparent effort. The inhabitants of Ventuma saw his great strength as a divine attribute to rule over them and depicted a man chosen by fate to lead them to greatness. As he grew, Angsama's strength grew and he became more and more famous. Endowed with this strength and united with the teachings he had received in preparation for his destiny to rule, Angsama became a great man upon taking the throne after the death of his father, Angsama III. Everyone expected a prosperous and peaceful reign under him and that's what originally happened.
The first years of the Angsama government were good for Ventuma, He created a society for the study of typhoons, increased trade links, but the most important thing he did was to create a series of privileges for the Sakaeli Order who over time became the protectors of Ventuma and guardians of the winds. However praise and the influence of power soon went to his head, and Angsuma saw himself as a god on earth and everything started to change. Angsama began to reign tyrannically and resented the growing influence of the Sakaeli who were seen as the champions of the people through their help of the neediest under the new dictatorial regime. Angsama saw in this an undermining of his power and started to persecute the Sakaeli. The brute force of the persecutions coupled with Angsama's great power soon decimated the order, reducing them to a remaining few who lived in the main monastery of the Sakaeli.
These remaining few sakaeli entrusted themselves to the element of the wind and all together they created a powerful tornado, the like of which had never been seen before in Ventuma, that reduced Angsama's powers and imprisoned him. Due to his actions, Angsama was sentenced for life to be chained to a rock with sacred chains that even with his strength, Angsama himself could not break. The monks decreed that only if they saw Angsama redeem himself, would they free him. Since then, peace returned to Ventuma but only for a short time. A Sakaeli monk named Kus- Ra, influenced and corrupted by a thirst for power, in an act of rebellion against the very order that welcomed him freed Angsama and commanded him to finish the Sakaeli off.
Angsama free once more, was ready to finish what he had started, even if he had to do it under the command of another disgusting monk. No one would be able to defeat him or ...would they?
