Aurion: Legacy of the Kori- Odon tells the tale of Enzo Kori-Odon, a prince who has some serious doubts on if he is ready to become a king to the people of Zama. He is engaged to be married to his love Erine who is from an ally tribe, the Evou. In the middle of the marriage ceremony, Erine’s brother Ngarba crashes it and let’s Enzo know he has no intentions of letting him rise as the King of Zama– he feels he is better equipped for the job since he is trained in a higher level of Aurionics — the technique of gathering spiritual waves and using them to fight in battle
Ngarba struck a low blow when he mentions Enzo’s ancestors and how they were weak and unfit to rule the kingdom. Understandably, this struck a nerve and Enzo and Erine fight back.
