The Four Great Heroes
The Four Great Heroes of Alore is a story told to all Aloreans after the first reclamation, detailing the events of the Alorean First Era as it occurred from the perspective of modern mythology. The myth refers to The Tale of the Four Great Heroes, which is where the myth originates.
The Four Great Heroes is a tale beginning at the start of the Alorean First Era (AFE), which describes the events of the Reclamation and the involvement of the four titular heroes: Tyrra, Saera, Ysrai, and Gjalva. The historical legend that this tale is based from influenced nearly everything in modern Alorean society, from the names of the four main continents (Tyrralore, Saeralore, Ysrailore, and Gjalvalore), to the ideological standings on the nation based use of technology or magic; this tale works to continually establish the precedent for the world at large.
This tale is based on the once recorded history of the Alorean First Era, transcribed from nearly irreparably damage documents on the subject lost during the First Calamity.
This tale is spread worldwide and is taught to future generations as an example of heroism and virtue.
