Prologue: The Curse of Apo Mumbaki

The magical world of Maharlika is governed by the supreme god, Apo Bathala. With his divine power, he bestowed upon the chosen people a power called Mahika. And with this power, he said to them, ”Eliminate the darkness, and keep the people out of the hand of evil. ”

There are two known types of Mahika in this world: white magic known as ”Kabutihan ” and black magic known as ”Kadiliman. ” The chosen ones who wield Mahika are known as Katalonan, Babaylan, Asog, or Mumbaki. It depends on the job description and how these kinds of sorcerers use their Mahika.

Katalonans, who use Kabutihan, are usually experts when it comes to combat. They wield the Mahika of known elements, from water to light. A Katalonan would always have with them the weapon of their choice and would infuse it with Mahika during a fight.

Also hailing from the same Mahika as the Katalonans, are the Babaylans (female) and Asogs (male). They are sorcerers experts in healing, herbalism, incantations, rituals, and divination. Although experts in their chosen fields, they do not use their Mahika for combat and are usually present for support during a quest. The jobs of a Babaylan and an Asog are frequently regarded as too delicate for those who have chosen the Katalonan path.

Lastly is the Mumbakis, who are experts in curses, hexes, voodoo, and other sinister magic. It has been said that the Mumbakis have no right to live in this world. They use Kadiliman, which is deliberately unacceptable because of its inherent evil nature that often destroys the people.

The users of Kabutihan and the users of Kadiliman have been at each others throats since the dawn of time. The War of Light and Darkness is one example of such a conflict.

It is one of those historical events that people will never forget. It was the day Apo Mumbaki caused terror in the whole continent of Ligaya.

It was three hundred years ago when the continent was in total consternation. Hundreds and thousands of Mahika users, as well as ordinary peoples corpses, littered the land.

The rustic scent of fresh blood, as well as the rotten smell of decayed flesh that lingered in the air, caused people to swear and vomit. Tall buildings that were formerly adorned with lavish decorations have vanished. Large chunks of rock and dust were all that remained. Looking back, the people are unsure whether the continent on which they now reside is still their home or simply a location where the Mumbakis and Katalonans fought.

The Mahika, which had been offered by the gods, was now utilized as a terrifying instrument, resulting in the deaths of nearly fifty thousand Katalonans in a single night. The only individual capable of carrying out such heinous acts was the Sitan tribes leader, Raha Sitan, also known as Apo Mumbaki. He is legendary for being the Mumbaki who used a forbidden Kadiliman ritual to become immortal.

Everybody in the land has heard about the Apo Mumbaki. He is so infamous that no one dares to mention his real name for fear of bringing bad luck on themselves. He used to be a Katalonan, but for unknown circumstances, he lost his Kabutihan Mahika. Because he had lost Kabutihan, he opted to utilize Kadiliman, which was frowned upon by the people, particularly the Kapatiran, the official Katalonan organization on the continent of Ligaya. Imagine the outrage on the Katalonans faces when he returned and proclaimed that he had followed Mumbakis path.

His behavior had always been unusual. He is regarded as the craziest man on the continent, and his familys name has been tainted as a result. He did not adhere to traditional clothing rules, and how he spoke was considered obscene by many. Not only that, but his views are constantly regarded as unsuitable and absurd, and no one can ever tell whether there is small rationality in his assertions. Because who in their right mind would think that Kadilimans Mahika could be used to aid people? Only the Apo Mumbaki could believe in such nonsense.

There were even darker theories about how he came to be immortal. Many people think that as a Mumbaki, he attained immortality by offering human bodies to a wicked demon using prohibited sorcery. And to make his actions more shameful, he had the audacity to use the name of the god of the underworld as his surname!

The Hiraya tribe, the Bughaw tribe, the Dakila tribe, the Dalisay tribe, the Marikit tribe, and the Humaling tribe were among the Ligaya Continents greatest tribes who gathered together to seal him. The Apo Mumbaki was overpowered and brought to his knees by these seven powers merged into one.

Bagani Hiraya, the Hiraya tribes then-tribe leader and the Apo Mumbakis deadliest adversary, spearheaded the campaign. They discovered the Apo Mumbaki sheltering in a cave, severely injured and without a Mahi
