Ep. 539 - How The Five Ancients Became Men - A Chinese Folktale
Before the earth was separated from the heavens, all there was was a great ball of watery vapor called chaos. And at that time the spirits of the five elemental powers took shape, and became the five Ancients.
The first was called the Yellow Ancient, and he was the ruler of the earth.
The second was called the Red Lord, and he was the ruler of the fire.
The third was called the Dark Lord, and he was the ruler of the water.
The fourth was known as the Wood Prince, and he was the ruler of the wood.
The fifth was called the Mother of Metals, and ruled over them. These five Ancients set all their primal spirit into motion, so that water and earth sank down.
