Day 27… Who was Ely?

It was late twenty first century when the first reckoning broke out in old England, our book of elders spoke of the tension that had been building ever since the corruption of government. The lack of humanity in the people who owned the country was terrifying to the normal working people below them. The money derived powerful leaders took it upon themselves to change how the country was run.They discarded those who were not equals and left those with some wealth to fight for a place next to power. This era was regarded as the Bleak, poverty was the norm and many secrets were sold,  this was a moment in history that the book of elders did not to dwell to long on.

The book of elders however starts with the story of the gracious Ely Williams, who took the burdens of the city upon his shoulders, unknowingly to him that it would be his death in years to come. Before his influential status he was like you and I, living under all those who had a ounce of power. People who knew him as a child only remember his innocent piercing blue eyes, he only ever achieved good and thus won over the hearts of his peers. Throughout the years he became popular in the lower society, mysteriously conjuring anything that was needed, giving no clues on how it happened but just words of wisdom that gave the community hope. No-one ever suspected someone from a lower society to be a threat to power, Ely had a way of disguising his huge community of followers. Over the years of Ely’s underling crusade the alliance to power had somewhat slipped and with their greed had not noticed, one by one communities across old England followed the leadership of Ely. In these years Ely had gathered his own guild of people worthy of greatness,  Sapphire became the signature of Ely, Emerald, Earth, Violet, Sun each of these great people dug out power from their hiding and replaced them to make a better world.
