The First Umbral Calamity
, also called the Calamity of Wind
, was the cataclysmic event that began recorded history, ending the period in which the Twelve
were thought to have walked the world of Hydaelyn
It was not until the advent of the Sixth Umbral Era
that, by the process of elimination, scholars were able to declare with certainty that the elemental calamity
which ushered in the First Umbral Era
was indeed connected in some way with wind—possibly in the form of terrible hurricanes, tempests, or tornadoes.
Recent dealings with the moogles of Moghome
in which village elders have spoken of a wind-driven disaster previous to the first five calamities serve to further reinforce this theory.
