Born in 7099, 4100 years after his name-sake, Balos quickly put his mark on Gemnos. From humble beginnings, at the age of 21, he is already general of the Kingdom of Kuranz. With Rorax destroying his way towards the Elven Queen, Balos disobeys his king, steals the army from Parys and marches (and sails) almost 1300 miles to fall on Rorax, killing him in a epic single battle lasting more than three hours.
It is said that as Rorax dies, the Elven Queen moved in, kisses Balos on the cheek and whispers something to him. Immediately after, Balos gathers his army, turns it around, and starts his conquest of the continent.
21 years later, Emperor Balos the Warlord founds the Empire. Every country he has invaded are made an equal part of the Empire, every citizen is equal. Laws are written to ensure that both Emperor and other positions of power are held by the most deserving, instead of whoever is next in line. In 7436, Balos the Warlord is assassinated. To this day, it is still not known whom stood behind the act.
