Fatima refers to an ancient Aveh kingdom which once occupied much of the island, in the days when it was a fertile land. The ancestors of the Fatima were nomads who lived in the grasslands of Aveh, living in harmony with the land and worshipping the primal powers. The Kingdom of Fatima came to prominence thousands of years before the War of Wills. After centuries of expansion, Fatima began its slow decline. Fatima fell during the War of Wills, destroyed by its last king. The king, Shakhan, used the power of a dark artifact known as the Scorpion Crown in an attempt to gain perpetual dominion over his subjects. He felt he needed to control his own people to better defend against the aberrant creatures of the Far Realm. Instead, the crown turned Fatima into a gigantic scorpion and his people into monsters. The island itself was even changed, transformed into a vast wasteland now known as Aveh.
