~~~ The Silver Conclave ~~~
From the writings of Shanala, Archiver of the Lush Hill
So, this is a story about the Silver Conclave, an island from Skarmory legends. This is one of many stories about the Silver Conclave, actually, but I remembered this one because a friend was telling me about legendary Pokemon and it reminded me of this book that my master used to have."Long ago, there was a large island in the Bay of Olivine, an island of indomitable stone. No one knows where it came from or how it came to be.
There were two warriors of indomitable might, who fought on the distant shore. The first was a heartless assassin; the other, an angel. With his swift knives, the assassin dealt a mortal wound to the angel's side. Dying, the angel fled to the indomitable island.
Deep in the tunnels beneath the ocean, he found a shining light. The light took the form of a great bird with feathers of silver, and told the angel to drink from the waters of serenity.
Thus the angel drank from the waters, and descended into a deep sleep. But in his sleep, he discovered that all things were one, and that the world throbbed with life.
In his dreams, he could see the world and the life that flowed through it, from the rich jungles of Hoenn to the glittering snowfields of Sinnoh. And as he slept, his wings turned to silver...
When he awoke, he discovered his wounds had healed, and his body was whole. But the assassin had followed him to this place of safety, committed to finishing his mission. Thus the angel drew his sword, and went outside to do battle with the assassin once more.
Though the assassin struck again with his knives, the angel's new body was like armor, and could not be pierced. And so the angel overwhelmed the dark killer with his sword, and drove him from the island's shores.
The angel declared the island a sacred place of refuge, for he had been on death's door, but the waters of serenity had saved him. To repay his debt to the island, the angel Skarmory embraced his new form; and the shining light came to be known as Lugia, the Silver Summoner..."
Well, I'm not sure about the Silver Conclave... but I do know there aren't any such thing as angels. Still... the "Bay of Olivine" is roughly where the Whirl Islands are, and apparently there is a legend about a Pokemon called Lugia who lives somewhere near there... Haha.
