A Titan named Prometheus once unleashed the sorrows onto the world in an attempt to weaken the Gods and end their tyranny. This act caused much pain and despair in the world. Prometheus' lover, a mortal named Pandora then betrayed him and summoned the Gods. The Gods granted Pandora a golden box and tasked her with recalling and guarding the sorrows. She then became the first in a line of Guardians destined to protect the box and preventing evil from unleashing the sorrows.
