    “Lived with his family in a quiet home near a jungle.
    One day, a terrible storm caused a landslide, which reduced his house to rubble.
    He returned from picking mushrooms to find himself the sole survivor.

    After that, he learned to survive on his own.
    However, he was never truly alone, for he befriended many animals living in the jungle.

    Sometime later, the jungle was engulfed in a raging fire.
    He led as many animals as he could to safety, then charged into the blaze to search for more survivors.
    There, amid the flames, he discovered the source of the fire.

    “Why would anyone do this?” he thought as he stared down the cruel arsonists. “If only I could say something. What kind of monster would want to harm innocent lives?”

    But in a world without words, he could only silently flee the flames.

    As if guided by a divine hand, the Archer eventually found himself standing before the Great Crystal.”
