The Wings of Seraphim
Eons ago, when the world was newly formed, no life existed on our plane bar three higher beings of the air, Aetos, Zephyr and Seraphim. Each was unsure about what the world should be inhabited by. Aetos, in her wisdom, created plant-life to sustain the world that existed. Zephyr, his headstrong ways ruling his decision, created humans. Seraphim, the compassionate one of the three, created Pokemon to live along humans, as one harmonious world.
They departed to the heavens, leaving the lives they had created behind them to co-exist peacefully. Eons passed, the higher powers in almost a slumber, leaving the world to exist.
150 years ago, Seraphim awoke, alone, and his mind strayed to the world below. Curious to see how the world existed, he took the form of a Taillow, and traveled to the world below.
Once upon the world, Seraphim was shocked to find that humans hated and feared the many species of Pokemon that he had created. He traveled the world, finding nothing but the same thing in most parts of the world.
After traveling for a month, Seraphim stumbled upon a small sanctuary known as Denia by its residents. It was run by an elderly couple, and it was, as it appeared, to be the only place in the world were Pokemon and humans co-existed peacefully.
The elderly couple took in Seraphim, and cared for him. Seraphim, unbeknownst to the elderly couple, began to create a psychic link between the elderly couple, and the Pokemon of the sanctuary.
A few weeks after Seraphim had arrived, a group of hunters arrived, determined to kill all the Pokemon of the sanctuary. The elderly couple refused to allow them entry, and the hunters barged past them, shooting the elderly woman close to her heart, and bringing her close to death.
Seraphim, although a benevolent being, was angered by the hunter’s actions, and revealed himself in his glory. He transformed them into Pokemon, and rushed to the aid of the elderly couple.
Using his powers, he restored their life source, and reimbursed them, making them young again. With this act, the psychic link he had been creating, was activated, and, through some stroke of luck, became part of every human on the planet, sharing with them Seraphim’s compassion for the Pokemon. Seraphim left our plane, and where he left, a silver circlet was left. The couple named it the Wings of Seraphim, and began to wonder what to do with it.
Therefore, they created a tournament for humans to participate in. Only humans who had befriended flying Pokemon were able to enter, and the winner would be adorned with the Wings of Seraphim.
This tournament has been continued by the couple’s descendants. Held every 25 years, the Wings of Seraphim are passed down to the tournament’s winner, and each year, the winner is presented with a Taillow, in memory of the form Seraphim took when he walked on our world, all those years ago.
