After the awakening of mortals, rule was left solely to the gods. But infants of mind and spirit, the mortals were not prepared to forge their own destiny. Amid the monsters left by Gaia, there was no cultivation led by humans, they could only serve the whims of the Trisdekatheon. Then, seven mortals were witness to the uncovering of seven tablets set by the Fire Thief. Each learned all there was to know of one of the aspects of divine knowledge, and was freed from servitude from the gods. Each went to a place of their own choice to begin spreading their knowledge, and build an earthly city in Calopius. The cities grew for a time, but mastery of only one aspect of life left the cities vulnerable. At the suggestion of Periander, the Sages built roads linking the cities, establishing trade of goods and ideas. Now self sufficient, the mortals were fit to rule themselves. The Gods looked upon this and chose not to interfere, so long as sacrifices flowed and honor was still given to the Thrones of Heaven. And so it was, the Seven Sages became the pinnacle of mortalkind, and their cities were named for them. The Tablets of the Fire Thief imparted enough knowledge that the Sages remained alive in spirit, rising to seats of prominence among the gods. Closest to The Muses, the Sages of Calopius continue to inspire the politics and goals of the cities bearing their titles and legacy.
