Notable Events - What notable events throughout history has Tiasis - Mathos of Winter been a part of?

Long ago, the land was hot and baked. The trees strained to bring life to the land even with the help of Menja and Taros. Radona gave them a brief rest but it was not enough for the trees.

They began to lose their leaves from exhaustion, losing their ability to take food from the sun and couldn't make it rain. They fell into a comatose state, many perishing.

Knowing that the future looked grim, the bears all came together to find a way to save the forests. They performed the Karmarsherrnus, a ritual of separating their souls from their bodies. Their bodies went into hibernation and Mathos was created.

When Mathos took form, the purely physical form of soul energy froze the land. The trees were frozen into a state of sleep, other animals also going to sleep to give more power to Mathos. When the three months were up, Mathos dispersed and spring came much greener and much more beautiful than before.

The trees left their comatose state, rejuvenated and more awake than ever before. The bears agreed that every year, they would hibernate so that the trees never become so strained as before and so every spring will be a time to rejoice.
