When Zen, youngest child of First Mother grew to the brink of adulthood he went out to find a spirit guide as his brothers and sisters had done. He was best suited to temperment of the lion- courageous and proud, a hunter- but solitary, a vanguard and a symbol. But he was also greedy and lazy and impatient, and Zen could not always control these.
When he failed himself, and his siblings failed him and his parents and tribe failed him; then Zen did not join with the lion, but instead forced a joining with the locust. And in doing so, Zen drove both of them mad.
Out of this madness came a new being who called himself Kurnos and declared himself King of an Empire, and would come to be known as the False King. For in the end, all Kings are False.
