I. A father gave his each of his twin sons a suit of enchanted armor when they came of age. One son, Lorax, reveled as he imagined the havoc he could wreak while encased in such mighty steel.
II. Lorax stormed from his father's keep, in search of victims. He stalked the land - murdering innocents, ravishing maidens, and robbing merchants.
III. Lorax's armor mutated in reaction to his crimes, the magical metal shifting in shape and shade. As he performed evil it became darker, more sinister.
IV. Soon Lorax heard of his brother's deeds. He snarled when he learned of the nobility and virtue his twin had shown. So he scoured the land for Benedict, that he might butcher him.
V. The twins came face to face beside the Rubicar, and raised their blades. There they fought from dawn until dusk, but Lorax could not penetrate his brother's gleaming armor. He was forced to withdraw, his mind black and bitter.
