Ilírio

Uma grande guerra entre as tribos Enquéleas e Galacianos persistiu por séculos na região oeste da Trácia. Ela se encerrou quando o próprio deus da guerra enviou um campeão para tomar um dos lados. Seu nome era Cádmo. Ele conseguiu encerrar o conflito lutando junto aos Enquéleas e expulsou a tribo contrária. O heroico Cádmo foi aclamado como rei dos Enqueleanos. No entanto, ele não aceitou a grande honra. Partiu em seguida, deixando seu filho Ilírio como rei da região.

Esses eventos aconteceram há muito tempo atrás. O rei Ilírio hoje ultrapassa os oitenta anos de idade. É um ancião. Infelizmente, ele nunca poderia imaginar que o momento mais crítico do seu governo ocorreria tão tarde em sua vida. A ascensão do rei Trax foi devastadora para seu povo. Tudo começou quando o rei dos selvagens atacou o povoado liderado por seu filho Dardano. Matou homens, mulheres e crianças. Não sobrou ninguém.

O rei Ilírio jurou vingança. Passou os últimos dez anos de seu governo na defensiva enquanto preparava um ataque contra o invasor. Decidiu que Trax não conquistaria as terras ilirianas tão facilmente. Para isso, forjou uma aliança com o rei exilado Abas e o guerreiro Eumolpo de Eulêsis, que hoje vivem em Micenas, para contra-atacar. Assim, como instruiu seus doze filhos a fugirem e se espalharem pela floresta com os sobreviventes, caso o pior aconteça.
