Their was a lonely boy in a lonely village on a lonely mountain range full of lonely sheep. The boy herded these sheep and it brought him great wealth, but the boy was not happy. He had no kind mother and no wise father so he sat in his large warm house when he had the time. Now in his spare time the boy would study the works of great scholars and one day he wished to become one. Days and years past by and before long the boy was the richest and most powerful man for miles. He had forgotten his vow to become a scholar and spent his money on feasting and guards to beat his subjects for money, but their was one subject who did not bend to the mans will. He wore plain clothes and lived a plain life and worked hard with little pay, but the villagers loved him for his kindness and his faith in a god called God. Seeing this plain man the man asked to have a audience with as it seemed that the man was humbled by the plain man, then they disappeared. 5 years later the two men came back the young one was bald and plain the older one was also but he was dying. Despite his new ways the young mans warriors obeyed him because they could get no more money. The young man shocked by the richness of his home he took of any thing he deemed unnecessary, he then made it into a church of God. The mans solders eventually become monks and the village returned to life. But life was soon to be over for the old man. He was proud of his pupil and decided on his deathbed he would give his pupil the name of Imuildaeren. Before dying the old man said 'Imuil means sheep as a sheep is a special mule that keeps the people warm and sacrifices themselves to the people for food that's why there is an I. Daeren means herder, for you are a herder who collects people and turns their eyes to the light. But now I must speak to the Holy Father Himself'
