In ancient folk tales originally passed down mouth to mouth, Death Valli tribal fishermen would go to war with the Fish-People and hold them back from invading Death Valli and the world. A snippet of the oldest written text (translated) of this story goes as following: "It was the third moon since we had set out. Our voyage was dangerous, eying the water in out little canoes. Canoes are the gods chosen stealth boat the elders would say. They were right. As we neared the Ice-Land, we saw a ice float near us. We prepared our bows and spears for the coming battle. The foe was a scary fish people. Some called them demons, some cursed humans, but no matter what we knew they wanted the village for themselves. And so we set out in the mid bleak winter, ready to serve and protect our families. And behold, the ice cracked and we saw the horrifying figure of a Fish-Person, their eyes found us like beams of moonlight. We were too startled to move, and they quickly surrounded us. We began to fire and stab, but our brothers and sisters were killed until it was just me, the chiefs daughter, and the best of our archers. We glanced at each other and knew our time had come. Then it seemed the wind shifted and the gods took pity on us, and bestowed upon us new strength. We finished off the Fish-People, and upon returning to the village with the head, we were told we were Fisher-Men, to train the young ones how to fight our enemies and save our lands. To this day you can hear the echoing fighting from the Spirits of the Fisher-Men and the Fish-People battling near the Ice-Land. Hear their cries and know they serve us in eternity"
