When used, the text reads:
While the Luxons and Kurzicks adapted to their new environment, the effects of the Jade Wind were still being felt some 200 years later.
Then, a great plague struck Cantha. Thousands fell to illness, and their bodies mutated into hideous beasts. Those who met this fate were referred to as the Afflicted.
Abominations began to appear in every corner of the kingdom. The half-brother of the emperor, Headmaster Togo of the Shing Jea Monastery, vowed to find the source of this plague.
Shiro's forces regathered, and with the arrival of powerful Shiro'ken, he assaulted the emperor's palace. Master Togo sacrificed his life to save his half-brother and emperor.
Unfortunately, Shiro needed the blood of Angsiyan, not the emperor himself, and as Togo's blood fell to the floor, Shiro's mortality was renewed. He returned.
Yet, with the advantages of mortality also come the risks of being mortal. A group of heroes led by the monk Mhenlo and empowered by the dragon Kuunavang faced and defeated Shiro.
These events allowed the xenophobic Ministry of Purity to take power. They forced the Tengu to leave Cantha and ushered in an era of isolation that continues to this day.
