History of the Age of Zeteginia
Astrologist Warren:  There is much that happens before and during Ogre Battle 64:  Person of Lordly Caliber.  First there is the Legend of Ogre Battle, the battle between humans and ogres for the rule of this world.   Though many believe this to be only legend, it is quite true, as the quest for the ultimate power is unraveled.  In the great war the sages of the Zeteginian Empire as well as the three High Knights fought the ogres forcing them back into the Neither World where they  came from.

    Nearing the end of the quest the Rebellion confronts General Hikash, Rauny's father.  Though he knew the Empire was wrong, his honor would not let him give up fighting and sadly, he died giving his final farewell to his daughter.  The assault on the Zeteginia Capital was the final battle for Empress Endora.  They find that Endora did not start the war at first.  She was the one trying to prevent it.  She learned of the Holy Lodis Empire and tried to get the other kings to fight alongside her.  They did not believe her and attacked the capital.  That was when Rashidi came in.  Giving the empress power to defend the Highlands, the Evil Empire was born.  After her death, the final battle began for Destin and the heroes of the Rebellion.  Obtaining the twelve Zodiac Stones and the three mystic treasures, the Rebellion began the assault on Rashidi, the root of all evil.  Rashidi did not wish to rule the empire, but wanted the power beyond that of gods.  He wished to obtain the Ultimate Power.  Gares, who had been cloning himself the entire time by using Rashidi's powers, showed up for a final fight in true form but fell against Destin, Prince Tristan, Yushis, and Saradin.  Afterwards, the puppet master showed himself and the great battle for the land of Zenobia began.  However, before he died, Rashidi was able to complete the revival of the god of Darkness Diablo.  Strangely enough, Rashidi seemed almost glad to die there, saying that this was his destiny.  The god of distraction, Diablo was not strong enough to defeat Destin and his friends and soon the battle for Zenobia was over.
