In the beginning there was a single Elemental Overlord, Xarmaroch. Within his body and psyche consisted the four Prime Elements in their sentient form, Lithos (Earth), Pyros (Fire), Stratos (Air), and Hydros (Water).
Xarmaroch was responsible for everything on the Material Plane. By combining his various powers he created light, life, death, and darkness, but within him the four Elements struggled for superiority and eventually weakened Xarmaroch. Hoping that he could quell the battle raging within, he fractured his body and created the four elemental planes, then he sent a part of his essence to each plane. Thus the Elemental Lords were born.
Those on the Material Plane that had worshipped Xarmaroch were at a loss for he no longer heeded their calls and in his place were four infantile lords, each demanding obedience from the people. The followers of Xarmaroch could not decide among them which was the stronger element, so they too broke into four factions, each following their own lord. The opposing factions waged war after war for millennia, almost destroying one another but never truly gaining anything over the others.
Eventually, four Masters, one from each faction, met to discuss the ongoing conflict. It was agreed that the four lords were too evenly balanced in power for a victor to emerge. Thus they combined their forces into one group. This group exists to this day in secret, gaining in power before revealing themselves to the world as a unified force. Their goal is to recombine the four wayward lords and resurrect Xarmaroch in his original form, thus bringing harmony to the Multiverse once more.
