Long ago, Japan was an island nation often talked about by the Samurai. After The Great Cataclysm, its occupants feared that it was no longer safe to stay. In response, they created a massive fleet of ships and loaded up as many people, animals, plants, and equipment. They sent out that fleet of ships to search for safe haven for their civilization. Their search brought them to The Myre. However, the situation was far worse than they expected. While the fleet was out, Japan and all its inhabitants sunk into the ocean. When the Samurai sent ships back to send word of safe harbor, but it was too late. Their home had been swallowed up by the ocean.
