Richard Nathan was a preacher in Nivaria, the country known as Morvaria today. During the shift in the government policy, Richard and his wife were imprisoned for his ideology which was counter to the state. While imprisoned with many others, Richard believed that a better day would come and that belief never waivered. One day the universe answered back, astonished at the great amount of faith Richard displayed. Richard would continue to hear the voice which told him to prepare for the others for the coming day. Richard would preach of that day, and that day did eventually come when everyone in the prison were whisked away into another plane of existence.
The other prisoners of Nivaria would place Richard in leadership and would eventually construct the Universal Church. The others would form the Magi, the devout followers of the Church's teachings. The Church would soon find Netharanium as was told by Richard, which symbolized the new age of the Church. The Church would continue to listen to the words of Richard, now the High Priest, as it continued to protect and guide the Church through its stay.
One day, the universe spoke and told Richard that his wife would die. When that day came, Richard isolated himself, communing with the universe day after day, month after month. Seven years later, the gates of the Church's inner sanctum opened with Richard preaching a new vision - to go out across the universe, time and dimension and spread the teachings of the Church.
That day Richard Nathan became the Herald
