Five hundred years ago on Galuf's world, the vilest of the evil
spirits in the world were gathered and sealed into a single tree
within the Forests of Moore. The evil festered and twisted the tree's
flesh, and it became ExDeath. He tried to master the power of the
Void, but was defeated and sealed by the Warriors of the Dawn thirty
ExDeath, by the way, means 'EXceeding Death".
