Mages... have been in existence since the first mage received his power from some deep and unknown part of this world,. That is to say unknown except to the single mage (yeah mages are sworn to chastity) who exists to "take care" of our
humble world. This position is obtained in an electoral process through the votes of card carrying mages.
The presence of the Mages became felt somewhere around the A.D.'s first years. At this time there was a mage named Jesus Christ or some such thing. He broke the long standing rule held by the mages before him; i.e. not to interfere with the people of the world "unless absolutely necessary or for profit".
There were several incidents where mages failed to aid the world. However, mages from distant locations have since traveled sideways through time and fixed most of them. Below is an account from This Guy on some of the larger blunders:
- The coffee mage got up late the day Harold the Saxon fought William Shakespeare where he lost his eye and died. The mage of that period was supposed to make sure that when Harold fell off his horse, he fell on the little cockroach near him on the ground. This was supposed to be the only way to steer this world away from the disaster of the creation of nuclear weapons. In this vital task the infamous coffee mage, whose brain whose only a little larger that the so-very-vital cockroach. Speaking of the coffee mage's brain, it is said in mage lore that it was the only one to have been brown in colour. Oh yeah, the reign got into his coffee and distracted him.
- Now that we're done with the brown-brained coffee mage let us move on to next mage who mas a meager mess up. This one took place not too long after the coffee incident. She was a mage of light (controls light rays duh....) However when the photographer tried to take a picture of her she objected and distorted it.
- She had the bad habit of walking around naked and distorting her image so that other people would see her wearing clothes. This lead to some embarrassing incidents as she was not very accomplished with this technique. The problem occurred when one of these embarrassing incidents occurred in the court of Richard the Lion-Heated. The court obviously went into uproar with delight as it was comprised of mostly males. There was even a CIA cover up on it.
After the mostly male uproar and raping of the mage of light, She was condemned by the church and burnt as a steak. She was also a major fan of Pacman.
- The next mess up was easily the biggest. It was in the time of a water mage. He loved to drink water with different concentrations of uranium, plutonium, vennium and of course jupiternium. INUYASHA LIKES SAUCE!!!!
- One day when the water mage was reading the book - "The book of time to come" which was about the time to come. It told the mages what was going to happen in the near future (it updates itself regularly). So when he was reading the book - "The book of time to come" to see what was going to happen in the time to come, in the time to come and the time to come after that, he got distracted and started reading "Sleeping beauty" and nearly slept for a hundred years. When he awoke, The book - "The book of time to come" was gone.
- Now he couldn't read about the time to come and the time to come and the time to come after that, which he had already slept through anyway. He really wished that he had read that he was nearly going to sleep for a hundred years when he read sleeping beauty. He decided not to go down that paradoxical path. So he told his apprentice to search for the book - well you know.
- The apprentice of the water mage was a mage of ice. He traveled the world over looking for the book of time to come and didn't find it. But he did find the book - "The book of time to come" and so he brought it back to his master who had unfortunately decided to walk down the path of old age and die at the very young age of 121 without even telling his apprentice. So the ice mage opened the book and it said "WORLD WAR TWO!" and then the ice mage realized he had opened too far into the book and flipped back a few pages to 1780.
- One week later he was on a mission to assassinate Charles Hardy so that his daughter Catherine would live and change the world for the better. The ice mage reached Spithead in England on May 23 only to find that his quarry had died a natural death 5 days later. He went into depression because of his failure and never made a public appearance again unless he had a brown paper bag covering his face. Thus he came to be known as the brown paper mage earlier on.
- The brown paper mage got so used to wearing his brown paper bag that his retinas could no longer view bright light so he had to wear wraparound shades over the bag. Over time he forgot he could use ice and used his magical powers in the brown paper industry which began to flourish because of the cheap production he was providing.
- After these many mishaps the mages began to not assume such a prominent role in the history and future of the world."
