Constant invasions upon Andilain by Mahan's horde put thousands of Gentre at risk. More than two thousand of the little-folk were slaughtered and eaten by Vallen scouts, prompting a mass exodus from the continent. With little regard for their own safety, the Gentre cast their fate upon the waters of the southern ocean and left their homeland, looking for another.

Wendell P. Dipmier is retrieved by the Iskari High Council using their messenger, Dax. Wendell is taken, in secret, by The High Elder into The Key and given The Hero's Inheritance , also know as the Ithari. Once the Gem had been bestowed upon the youth from Earth, Wendell was brought to The Bedurrim, to meet with the full council.
