In year 178 b.c. During the great reign of the four kingdom of the Earth realm, a falling star shot itself from the sky on the night of the 7th moon allignement with the sun, the star crashed on the Earth solid ground in the center of the four kingdoms. The kingdom of the Sky, of the Ocean, of the Flames and the kingdom of the Earth assembled their kings to where the fallen star from the sky landed
On the arrival at the crater they found a baby child, smoking from the impact of the fall, the child had long white hair along with long white eyebrows but the child's iris hues were missing like if she was blind. The kings couldn't decide which kingdom would take the child, several hours passed until they agreed to share the child with each kingdom, the first 3 months the kingdom of the Sky took custody of the child, which wasn't difficult for the Sky due that they were a calm village in which they believed that life was the most important thing on life.
The next three months was the Ocean kingdom to gain custody of the child which didn't bothered them to much either. The Ocean kingdom were more religious and believed in spirits, in gods and inner energy that lies within each persons.
The Fire kingdom were the military, they believed that a good strategie was strong offence while the Earth kingdom were the defensive strategiest, the two kingdoms didn't have time or the patience to babysit a baby girl. Shiro was left to be a lonely child while staying in the Fire and Earth kingdoms.
Every year the kingdoms were taking care of Shiro in their own way, but they each believed that her blindness was curse but in reality her curse was a blessing gift that Shiro was inherit, she learned how to improve her sense of hearing, smell, touch, inner sight and the sense of vibration that the Earth was sending when a person would walk on the ground, a bird that would fly in the sky, a fish swimming in the ocean.
Shiro favorite teacher was Enka the only person that she considered as a friend, parent figure and teacher. Enka was a lonely monk from the Water kingdom that nobody cared about or talked as a person, for the Water kingdom, Enka didn't existed, only Shiro stood beside Enka, taking the time to talk with the men and even shared lunch with. Enka taught Shiro the ancient arts of using her inner energy in martial arts, each fists to penetrate the defense of the opponent, each kicks pass through the opponent body in order for the energy that would leave the person body to hit the next opponent.
Enka understood Shiro better then anyone from all four kingdoms, he trained Shiro how to use her blindness to her advantage, to hear the sound of the flying butterfly, to sense the vibration of the earth when a living being or animal would march, to smell for tracking the enemie down. For Shiro her teacher was her life and only father that she wish to have in a family, there was no description for Shiro emotion when it came to Enka, always protecting Enka when someone would try to harm her Father , even defying the law which happen when the supplies went missing and the kingdom blamed Enka who was sitting under a tree playing the flute but Shiro who was passing by rushed herself and stood between her father Enka and the guards.
Shiro's eyes were filled with anger and yet she remained calm, taking the blame for her father's safety, the kingdom banished Shiro and her father from the kingdom of Ocean, without having proof of being innoncent Shiro and Enka left the Ocean kingdom and lived in the forest as well in the mountains.
