Pandora's Box was a weapon created by the Silver Cloak Society in order to imprison the leader of the Black Cloaks and the Shadows & demons. It was created by the last twelve members of the Silver Cloaks led by Leo the Noble. Each sealed there souls into the Zodia Stone one by one in order to seal the Shadows and their leader to end The War between their two orders. With their leader captive, the remaining members of the Black Cloak Society dispersed.
Behind the scenesEdit
The story of Pandora's Box and its creation differs from that in official lore. In official lore the box was originally a jar created by Zeus, and given to Pandora, the wife of the brother of Prometheus, in order to take revenge on Prometheus for stealing sacred fire. Pandora opened the box releasing all the evil contained inside (hate, malice, etc), but closed it before hope could escape. However, it still contained some of the evil it once contained. In time the jar took on the shape of a box. Lolotte wanted the box so she could access the evil it contained. With the powers she would not only be able to control Tamir, but the entire world.
In the game of KQ4, Lolotte explains her reason for obtaining the chest was; "I want to have Pandora's Box. It is said that whoever owns it would be in possession of the purist evil.""With the power and evil of Pandora's Box, I would be UNSTOPPABLE!" The game also states that the box was filled with "terrible demons".
- ↑ Shamir (TSL):"But the Silver Cloaks were wise, and they crafted a weapon that trapped the Shadows and sealed them away forever. ", "I'm not sure exactly how it worked, but somehow they did use it to trap the Shadows inside.", "And there are no records that say what happened to it after it was used.", "Yet somehow it ended up in Tamir, and Rosella found it there... Lolotte needed her help to do so.", "But Rosella stopped her before she could give it to the others, and then locked the Box up again."
- ↑ Shamir:"It was a magnificent source of dark power. Its origins date back beyond written history. The Black Cloaks abused this power, but then… and then box was lost. There are no records of it after the war ended, either."
