About 4,6 billion years ago/Age of MythsEdit

  • Yōko began lurking around Luxendarc, encountering travelers from the Celestial Realm who fled a calamity that occurred on their world. But when a disease the Celestial Beings were studying mixed with a disease native to Luxendarc, Yōko takes it within herself and enters a deep sleep to keep it from infecting the world. In time, Yōko became revered as a goddess.
