A perfect world.
Azure, the blue Kingdom.
The jewel of the southeast.
Azure is home to the world’s most magical creature.
Ibong Adarna (The Enchanted Bird).
It is written in the ancient book of Lezendus, that the Adarna is the voice of the Seraphim, the highest order of the hierarchy of angels.
The bird is a healer and can cure all maladies.
It was a gift from God to King Ephezu, the first ruler of Azure.
Ephezu destroyed Bezeelod Tikasib, King of the underworld, in a battle that lasted for 100 days.
As a final gesture before being defeated, Bezeelod Tikasib ordered the slaughter of all of Azure’s enchanted creatures, including the benevolent unicorns and the most beloved winged horses.
The only enchanted creature to survive was the Adarna bird.
The ancient book of Lezendus contains a secret map.
The directions to the hidden forest of Iberus on Mount Aurum, where the enchanted tree of Angelus Domi can be found.
It is the home of the Ibong Adarna.
Kulanda Tikasib, the great Witch Queen of the North, descendant of Bezeelod, will do anything to catch and destroy the last remaining enchanted creature.
