Seven Gifts of the Gods: The Champion
The datu’s only heir was a frail, sickly boy
whose leg had been withered by a childhood fever.
The Skygods took him from his father.
“Your son shall be reborn,” They explained.
“Possessed with strength to defend this land
from any that would dare to take it from you.”
Thus began the legend of the boy
that went up to Skyworld a cripple,
but returned to his people a warrior.
The legend of Lapu-Lapu.
