History

"For four thousand and fourty days the gods did battle. The inner id was relentless and gave no sign of fatigue. Heitho fought valiantly against the rage-god but the tireless strength of Garm proved too great for the noble warrior. After countless blows the Noble One's shield was struck lose and his mace deflected. With fury like never before seen, Garm struck the God-King's chest with his right hand, reaching into him. Garm ripped forth the heart of the passionate leader and held it high for all to see, blood dripping down his hand and arm and covering the earth below. Garm declaired the heart his and absorbed his passion, fueling his rage even further. Heitho fell to the ground in defeat, his heart ripped from his divine body. From the corpse of the fallen divine, the new God-King was born. Gone was his heart and passion and kindness. Gulbuz, God-Tyrant, rose from the fallen. The Heartless God ruled over his domain with renewed disregard.

And upon Heitho's death the Lord of Rage kept his heart and kept it in a cage. In doing so Garm forced the spirits to the mortal realm that they might know suffering. He the cast Heitho's soul into the Sea where it could wander in the dark. The Noble One's death not only created the God-Tyrant, but it also caged mortality into the cycle of death so that all may hate him and be filled with rage. And Garm smiled." - Tales of the Gods War
