As the story goes the devils and demons of the Earth hated the happiness and joy this new land had become. Their empty tortured planes where their preferred sanctuary and they cursed this new Eden. They decided burn the forest and fields to the ground in order to spite the lord and his marvelous dominion. God looked down upon the Earth to see what had become of his new found joy and sent forth a great flood to wash the fires of damnation away from his wonderland.

As God deemed the Demon guilty the Giant Eagle tore into it destroying it and its tortured soul. This Demon did not die without putting up a fight and the bird was wounded. When it flew down to the ground once again to replenish its strength it laid a golden egg upon the ground.
