Prologue: The Legend
A long time ago, there were these mysterious wish giving balls, called
Dragon balls. But in the beginning there was only one Dragon Ball.
The Legend, as I was told, goes something like this. The Dragon ball held all of the mystical energies of the universe. An ancient tribe discovered it, and was inspired by it's magnificent power. They built a shrine around it, and protected the orb by placing it in the mouth of a giant Dragon statue, said to be it's eternal guardian. The tribe enjoyed years of prosperity until one day, evil paid a visit to the village in the form of a band of thieves. These agents of Darkness stormed the temple in an attempt to steal the Dragon Ball for their own selfish gain. They were shocked to discover the true power of the Ball.
To ensure such an attack never happened again, the Dragon Ball was divided into seven smaller orbs, and scattered across the globe. Separately, the Dragon Balls were useless, but when all seven were united, then a single voice could summon the Eternal Dragon for one wish, and one wish only.
Some wishes were pure. but others were tainted by blind ambition. This led to pain and suffering as an unjust few wished for power and dominion over mankind. But as the story goes there will one day come a hero who will use the Dragon Balls for goodness, and bring peace and unity to the world once more.
Many sought these Dragon balls, but there's only one hero who succeed in bring peace and unity to the world, this boy, this child, was named Goku.
Throughout Goku's many adventures the confrontations he faced grew, but with the help of the Dragon balls, the Earth was saved from crisis many times.
After Goku and the other Z Fighters defeated the Shadow Dragons, Shenron appeared without being summoned. He healed Goku's wounds and granted one last wish. With Goku and the Dragon Balls, he left the Earth in order to recuperate and teach the Earth's inhabitants to stop relying on the Dragon Balls to solve their own problems.
One hundred years later, Shenron returns.
The year is now, Age 1005. Goku and his allies have all passed on and on Earth, the humans, along with the children of Majin Buu, known for their mystical powers, have began to spread and populate Earth living together in peace. Namekians, who've lost their homeland, also migrated to Earth.
