He has heard different oral history about the founders of the island, and he desires to be

Powerful as one of them, thence he decides to give it all it takes to be among the powerful

Ones within the island. As he continues to press for the power through different trainings and


Contacts with the terrestrial beings. He met with the chief of the terrestrial beings, which is

Hydra-headed in nature governing the island. The meeting with this being was a rare one, as

He has to fight with the terrestrial being. After hours of fighting with the being and the being


Could not overcome him, the being asks of what he would like him to do for him. Then he

Replies that he wants to be named among the powerful beings of his days and time. What you

Have asked for is a not a difficult one but the difficult aspect of it, the hydra-headed being


Replied him is how he will maintain the power that would be bestowed on him. Many a

One has been given power, but only few have been able to maintain the power he stated to

Him. I will maintain my own if you give me he replied the spiritual being with many heads.


What you only have to do for me is tell me what I need to be doing to maintain the power

And I will keep to your sayings. That is what others before you have said, but they have not

Been able to maintain the power after the power has been bestowed upon them. None the


Less, I will do what you asked for, bequeath on you the power as well as tell you what you

Need to do to maintain the power. If you can continue to do the simple thing that I will tell

You, I want you to know that you will stay at the pinnacle of the power bestowed on thee

Have heard, especially during the period when you have been pushed to the wall by the

Enemies and the oppositions. He promised to do this, though he knows that he is the kind of

Person that is easily pushed to the wall, easily angered, but since this is the requirement to


Stay at the top, he promises to do that to stay at the top ever like few of the ancient

Founders of the island whose stories he has heard from the elderly ones within the island. As

You are making a promise to do this, consider everything you have asked for done unto you,


Yea some of the things that you have not asked for would come along thine path because

Associated with the power that you will being to exercise from thenceforth is blessings,

Honor, promotion, and glory. You therefore need to know that you have been empowered


With great power of the gods of the island and whatsoever thou touch, the gods have touched, anyone whom you are annoyed with, the gods are annoyed with the person, all the war that you shall be going to from thenceforth consider it that you have won those wars, this


Is because I am the chief of the gods of this territory and nothing can be done without my involvement by the gods, any of the gods who wants to go against my wish shall be dethroned and disappointed. Since you have become mine today, you will surely be
