The Five Warriors, also known as the Five Greatest Warriors, are people who throughout history have affected things relating to the Machine.
Before The Five Greatest WarriorsEdit
At at unknown point in the past, a prophecy was foretold of five individuals who would come to have an impact on various elements relating to the machine created by the Super-Ancient Beings. It is unclear who foretold the prophecy, or how they did so. In any case, the prophetic rhymes of the warriors spread as far as Eastern Asia, though few traces would remain known until the present day.
Moses, born Thuthmosis, the First Warrior, stole some of Khufu's Treasure (the six Pillars and some of the Six Sacred Stones) from Rameses II.
Thuthmosis was among the very few who preached the idea of a single God in his homeland, and because of how badly this was recieved, chose to leave to preach his ideas elsewhere, stealing the Pillars and the Twin Tablets. He claimed that the writing on them was the word of God, naming them the Ten Commandments. He passed the Pillars on to his brother Aaron, who in turn passed them down through his family until they reached the poccession of Jesus Christ, a distant decendant of Moses.
Jesus Christ, the Second Warrior, is the union of two royal lines, his father being descended from David, and his mother descended from Aaron.
With Moses as a distant ancestor, Jesus was passed on all six of the Pillars. He affected the final locations of each of the Pillars. He then split them, five being left to his brother James, and keeping the Sixth Pillar with him, being burried in his tomb with it. James passed two of the Pillars on through the family, eventually reaching two of the Royal Families, while the remaining three were placed in the fortress of Van.
Ganghis Khan, the Third Warrior, recieved some of the Pillars and gave them away, and knew the locations of the Vertices.
Genghis's army invaded Van, and took the First and Third Pillars (the Second having already been stolen). Genghis gave the First Pillar to a Bedouin tribe as a gift of thanks for aiding him, a tribe which became the Royal House of Saud. The Third Pillar was given to the Shogun of Japan (which in turn was later given to the Royal Emperial family) at Hokkaido. The Shogun in turn gave Genghis a shield painted with images of the entrances to the Six Vertices, taken from a petrified dinosaur egg inside the Third Vertex, and was put to rest with it in what would become Genghis's tomb in his Lost Arsenal.
Napoleon Bonaparte, the Fourth Warrior, set out in search of the scattered Khufu's Treasure.
While he never did locate any of it, he did discover the Dark Star due to his curiosity about Jupiter and Saturn's lagging patterns (caused by the Dark Sun). His search for the Vertices and Khufu's Treasure did provide a vital clue as the location of the Sixth Vertex.
Jack West Jr., the Fifth Warrior, is the one who helps bring together all of Khufu's Treasure and makes the ultimate decision as to allow the Machine to be utilised.
Rhymes of The WarriorsEdit
This rhyme was written on a tablet that was found between the paws of the Sphinx when it was uncovered
- The First shall be the noblest, scholar and soldier both
- The Second a natural leader of men, none shall achieve greater fame than he
- The Third shall be the greatest warlord known to history
- The Fourth is the great obsessor, seeking only glory, but glory is a lie
- The Fifth shall face the greatest test and decide if all shall live or die
Wu Gorge PedestalEdit
This rhyme was inscribed on a pedestal in the Wu Gorge, which now lies underwater
- 1. A humble priest, son of the great god of wisdom, will flee his home, and a great king's hatred
- 2. A seer, a healer, a man all would be, will die atop a hideous tree
- 3. A lord of war but a ruler most wise, from the barren plateay his kingdom will rise
- 4. He shall seek empire but find only tears, his empire shall last not one score of years
- 5. A mortal battle between father and son, one fights for all, and the other for one
Black City GateEdit
This rhyme was found on the gate-door to Karakorum, the Black City, made in the time of Genghis Khan
- The First, the Warrior-Priest, will bring the treasure out of the ancient land and found the great lineage
- The Second, the Warrior-King, will join two royal lines and thus continue the God King line. He will break the treasure in two and leave his mark on the world forever
- The Third, the Horse-Warrior, will loyally guard the treasure in his halls of iron and pass it to those he deems worthy
- The Fourth, the Emperor-Warrior, will pursue the treasure for his own glory and succeed only in scattering it further. It shall forever remain out of his reach
- The Fifth, the Brilliant-Warrior, will be there at the Second Coming and will decide the fate of all
The Five Warriors were foretold by a prophecy back in ancient time to be key figures who would affect the fates of Khufu's Treasure (things that are connected to the Machine, as well as the Golden Capstone), be it the Pillars, the Vertices or the Six Sacred Stones.
- Issac Newton is considered to be an honourary Warrior, due to his knowledge of the Dark Star, the whereabouts of the Spring of the Black Poplar, and his desire to transmutate elements (like the Philosopher's Stone's function with the cleansing of the Pillars).
