The Diaspora was a curse put upon the human race by the deity Gidd. Lore has it that the ancestors of the humans were jealous of their creators’ powers, and stole some possessions from the last of the creators, Gidd. Afterward, Gidd found out who stole his precious possessions and killed them, but the punishment was not enough to satisfy him. He also put a curse on the whole human race, which spread throughout the land for 2000 years. The fact that humans have started to gather and civilize is only recent history.
