Great One (Sen IV)

Ishmelga Loge, the Great One (Trails of Cold Steel IV)

Ishmelga Loge (イシュメルガ=ローゲ), previously known as the Great One (巨イナル一), Great Power (巨イナルチカラ) , Steel (鋼), and the Sept-Terrion of Steel (鋼の至宝) is the resultant power from the ancient battle between the Sept-Terrion of Blaze, Ark Rouge, and the Sept-Terrion of Earth, Lost Zem.


Ancient Battle

Around the time of the Great Collapse, there were two factions living in the land now known as Erebonia. One faction was the kinship centered around the Sept-Terrion of Blaze and the other around the Sept-Terrion of Earth. The two treasures brought peace and prosperity to the civilizations. One day, these civilizations went to war with each other, and the giants followed suit.

To participate in this battle, the treasures took the form of two giants. The battle was said to shake the very Earth itself, and brought calamity to the land. The two civilizations, having realized their mistake, made peace with each other, but it was already too late. The giants had been locked in an eternal struggle, and their battle could not be stopped. This battle continued until both titans had exhausted their power. The remains of the fire titan were enshrined on Bryonia Island, while the remains of the earth titan were brought to the Nord Highlands.

Their spent power resulted in the creation of the Great One, which governed both Fire and Earth. Realizing that this is something too powerful for human hands, the factions collaborated to seal the body of the Great One in a higher plane. The kinship of the Blaze worked to split the remaining power into seven fragments, while the kinship of the Earth crafted seven vessels for the fragments of power. These vessels became known as the Divine Knights. Afterwards, the factions changed their names. The kinship of the Blaze renamed themselves to the Hexen Clan and the kinship of the Earth to Gnomes.
