"I shall live with my regret until the world itself hath ceased to be."
In times long past, Tiamat dwelled peacefully on the southern continent of Meracydia. That peace ended when the Allagan empire, seeking to lay claim to the landmass, invaded Meracydia, and in the resulting offensive, robbed her of her brood-brother Bahamut. In her sorrow, she was seduced by the promises of the Ascians, who gave her the means to summon her beloved Bahamut once more as a primal. The great wyrm has spent the past five millennia imprisoned within Azys Lla, and it is said she has come to lament calling forth the fell being that would ultimately do naught but besmirch Bahamut's memory.
