Elementals: Prologue: History of Hogwarts
For many years, different myths have surrounded the founding of the mystical lands of Hogwarts. Today, the land is divided into four illustrious kingdoms, Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin.
It was said that the kingdoms had been founded by four of the greatest witches and wizards of the age, Godric Gryffindor, Helga Hufflepuff, Rowena Ravenclaw and Salazar Slytherin. They decided to name the whole land Hogwarts and divided it amongst themselves and named the kingdoms as such.
The legendary thing about the mystical lands was that not only were its founders witches and wizards but they were also elementals. Only a selected few and highly trust worthy people knew of such a secret.
And what's more according to the myths unlike some elementals that only have the ability to control one specific element the founders can wield all four. Only that they prefer to use one because it made them more powerful. Gryffindor controls the element of earth, Hufflepuff the element of wind, Ravenclaw the element of water and Slytherin the element of fire.
Only the High Elder and the four Founders know that the gods had truly blessed them. They were given four powerful magical stones to channel their elemental magic efficiently. Gryffindor was gifted with an emerald, Ravenclaw with a sapphire, Slytherin with a ruby and Hufflepuff with a topaz.
The four kingdoms lived in harmony and in peace for a very long time under the reigns of the founders. But like everybody else, soon the founders reached the end of their lives.
The High elder, at the time of the founders, foresaw chaos and destruction if the stones existence were to be known, so he decided to place the stones somewhere safe, where only his successor has the knowledge of.
As time passed, the stories about the stones were forgotten. And everyone believed that the stones were lost, until now when they were needed as an unknown evil arises.
A.N.: Please review my work. I revise the prologue and soon I will revise the next two chapters.
