The Maginian Empire first grew to prominence in the heart of the Belbösu mountains--a desolate place that offers plenty of hardships to those who live there such as harsh winters, insufficient plant and animal life, a stony ground that's difficult to till, and uneven landscapes preventing extensive building. The people who live here have grown as hard as the stone that they work, and their endurance and will are legendary across Wisteria. Despite all of the awful challenges that Belbösu has, there are some civilizations that choose to endure because of the treasures that are hidden deep in the mountainside and the clean, flowing water that the many springs of Belbösu provide.
The Maginian Empire arose when history first started to be recorded. Oral tradition speaks of inhabitants of the mountains that have existed long before the Magi came to rule the lands. Although there was a lot of diversity among the peoples that preceded the Maginian Empire, they are all collectively referred to as 'the Mountain Men,' not only because they live in the mountains, but because many ancient legends speak of these people being "birthed from the mountains and the valleys."
