The Laws of Magic
Arcanos, the God King
Over a thousand years ago, Arcanos, the god of magic, physically manifested in the world in order to combat The Betrayer who had manifested in the world and was attempting to conquer and corrupt it. In furtherance of this goal, he taught humanity the laws of magic, and created the Empire of Man, and assimilated all of the countries of the world into it. After killing The Betrayer and trapping his remains in an inaccessible and inescapable prison, Arcanos remained in the world to rule the Empire and guide mankind.
