Early Life[edit | edit source]
In a remote time, now forgotten by men, the kingdoms were attacked by the most perverse of their creations: The War. The young Lyzothe lived in one of those kingdoms. The battles had punished her land for so much time that now a cloud of hate hovered on her, like if the dust of the battle was still in the air. At last, one day, the kingdom fell. Sensing the imminent end, Lyzothe's father, the king, ordered his daughter to take cover in the kingdom of the young Taskan IV. Lyzothe was separated from her family. As her father predicted, the land of their forefathers was devastated. Lyzothe went to her sad exile. Before going to the forest, he went through a battlefield. She contemplated the footprints of destruction. Almost collapsing, she supported herself in the only tree that was still on foot. Then she looked down, and her heart accelerated: There was an abandoned baby, sleeping. With tenderness, she picked him and she named him Hype.

As Hype got to the forest , he was attacked by a strangely large number of Brigands . He was able to escape the ambush and reach the town of Torras , where he was well welcomed because of the new policy of the king that allowed foreign knight to enter the city . Hype was able to reach The Laboratory , even with the bounty of 7000 plastyks on his head for stealing the royal jewel . As he saved a number of magicians , most notably Enost , the brave knight was able to find Gogoud , but unable to save him due to the fire wall protecting his cell .

As he followed the wizard to the Astrolabe , he was able to defeat it and get a powerful ice magic to free Gogoud . As he got out of The Laboratory , he found that the next jewel he was looking for was the Jewel of Humankind .
By finding a secret passage in The Forest , Hype met Karon , leader of the brigands , that took his crossbow bolts and plastyks , that would be returned to him if he completed Karon's task : go to Bolduk in the era of Taskan I and make him engineer another way to get to the Field of Courage's treasure room . Using Karon's Bracelet , Hype was able to prove to Bolduk that her daughter from the future asked him to build another way to the room , which the architect was able to engineer .
As Hype went to the Brigand Village due to the mistrust of Karon , he got a counterfeited Signed Pass which allowed him to pass Senekal and enter the Field of Courage , and a Brigand Insignia that made him the ally of the brigands forever .
As he defeated The Gladiator , he was allowed to get to either go to the Treasure Room or return , the brave knight choosing the first option . Using the mechanism made by Bolduk , he was able to enter the Treasure Room and fight with the Three-headed Dragon . As he defeated the beast , Hype earned the Jewel of Virtue and the mighty Mythical Armour , strangely bearing the symbols of Taskan IV .
