Long ago, a mage was looking for the ancient temple of Azul. It was a temple built by a now extinct underwater race. After years of searching, he had finally found it. The temple had been deteoriating ever since the underwater folk had vanished. He was trapped in the temple, but had the spell components to stay alive for a few days or so. The little magic left in this temple created gems that he was able to use to transform into an underwater being. Through some strange power he had received along with his transformation, he was able to create the Miquec. He has long since died, but the Miquec still dwell here in the Temple of Azul. They protect the temple and the temple keeps them alive...just like that race of underwater being so long ago... Azriel is using her powers of restoration to complete the final repairs of the temple.
