When used, the text reads:
The Canthan continent has a rich and turbulent history. A long series of events shaped not only the culture, but also the geography of the land.
Over 200 years ago, on the last day of the Harvest Festival, Emperor Angsiyan was betrayed and murdered by his bodyguard, Shiro Tagachi.
Alerted by the quick actions of a ritualist involved in the Harvest Ceremony, a united force of Kurzicks and Luxons engaged Tagachi in battle.
After a brief engagement, only two remained: the Luxon champion, Archemorus, and the Kurzik champion, Viktor. The arrival of a third—the Assassin Vizu—turned the tide of battle against Tagachi.
Vizu crippled the betrayer, and the champions used that moment to deal Shiro a fatal blow. With his dying breath, Shiro drained the fallen emperor's soul and let out a great wail.
This death cry unleashed a cataclysmic wave of energy known as the Jade Wind. It turned forest to stone and water to jade.
Shiro's plans were defeated, but the damage had been done. The lower half of Cantha was devastated by the Jade Wind, and the Emperor was dead.
