It was a warm night in Humania. The tribe was having a celebration in honor of the princess Hainani marrying the Prince Ukumehame of the tribe to the west. It was the grandest feast that the land has ever seen. Everyone was there, even Kupuna, the grumpy old shaman that everyone respected but was uncomfortable around.
The moon was full and the air was calm. Torches illuminated the perimiter and the area of the celebration ground with a wonderful and warm intensity. It was a great time to be alive.
Kupuna made his way to the area of food and picked out his favorite dishes: Fish, kalua pork, poi and coconut shavings. He sat quietly by himself and ate his delcious meal all the while keeping a keen and watchful eye over the children playing. He would yell at them for running around carelessly but he loved them dearly.
He noticed one of the children staring at him. A little girl. He did not recognize her and she looked somewhat different than the rest of the children. She was smiling and happy but there seemed to be a dark billowing glow around her. He asked a passerby if he noticed the same thing but all he got was "you're crazy, old man!".
Meanwhile, up in the sky, something was happening. A rift in time and space was opening up. It was a portal to and from another dimension. A great beast appeared through and descended down towards the villagers and their celebration.
A great roar was heard.
The villagers screamed and ran like so many ants would do. The beast, with no rhyme or reason was destroying the villagers homes, smashing people and eating them and setting fire to the forests. Kupuna, completely stunned, was useless. He was supposed to be one of the protectors of the land but what could he do against such a monster?
He saw that the beast was eyeing the little girl that he noticed. Her screams of fear burned through his veins like so much acid. It invigorated his soul and spirit. He became angry. "NO LONGER", he decreed.
"But what can I use? I have nothing..."
The nearest thing to him was a tiki torch. "that'll do".
Kupuna began chanting: "UA MAU KE EA O KA AINA I KA PONO!" over and over again. The torch, enveloped in a blinding white light, transformed into a magical item.
Kupuna grabbed it and used it to create a magic barrier between the beast and the girl. He then used the torch to encapsulate her in a Cocoon of The Gods or as what we futures call, a hyperspace bubble. He then then blasted the beast with triumphant volleys of magical nuclear fusion enhanced fireballs. Whoa!
One by one each fireball went through the beast completely burning holes in it. The beast fell with a mighty roar and a mighty tumble. The beast was vanquished.
"JUSTICE...............IS SERVED" Yelled Kupuna and thus was born, Kupuna's Tiki Torch of Justice.
