We can only travel so far back into history until we reach an era of eternal void. The first history of the Olympia Islands ever to be heard was the story of the Olympic Spirit. Sometime after the Ancient Olympics began, this spirit of the games found a set of uninhabited islands off in the Atlantic Ocean. Wishing for them to be populated, she brought many people to the islands, where cities were built, and ancient Greeks ruled the islands. Things were peaceful.

She felt that a revival of sorts was soon to occur, and her stirring somehow sent a faint wave across the world that moved the heart of a man named Pierre de Coubertin to found the International Olympic committee...
