Artwork from Final Fantasy VI.

Once there were two small countries---one commanding the power of fire, the other the power of ice---that attacked each other in a contest for power. Ironically, the fire nation would eventually make a shield of ice, while the ice nation would make a shield of fire. Bent on victory, the two nations refrained from using the types of magic they had perfected, and began turning towards thunder magic instead. Unfortunately, although both nations began developing the thunder shield, it only served to pave the path to their own ruin.
