Dijen's mother died during childbirth, leaving behind a son who could barely breathe, his face contorted by a defect that would have killed an ordinary baby in perfect conditions. It not only inhibited breathing, bacteria would routinely cause festering infections, and others were disgusted by the sight of him. Being born in the farmland outside of Pluj Swos meant there was little empathy for the permanently disadvantaged. But despite all this, Dijen crawled all the way up the steps in the dead of night, unseen by guards, to Holo's temple. He was two weeks old. It was almost as if he was called there by the power of crypto itself. Holo took him in, and the monks of Pluj Swos developed Dijen's signature mesh face-guard that turns his disability into an advantage – when you're distracted by a discomfort your whole life only for it to suddenly go away, your mind is freed in unimaginable ways, which explains how the boy was a fighting prodigy, creating moves never before conceived by even veteran warriors. And even though Holo grew to love Dijen like a son, Dijen was a persistently defiant child, routinely disobeying his masters in favor of his way. In Pluj Swos, arrogance is a mortal sin. Arrogance by a trainee is practically unthinkable. So when Holo took in Panshao, a passionately obedient student who quickly proved himself comparable to Dijen, jealousy brewed. Then jealousy turned to hatred, and that hatred grew and grew…until Panshao defeated Dijen in the Great Tournament in front of all of Crypta. That was the last straw. Dijen snuck into Panshao's room late at night, raised his sword above his head for the kill, and then…lucky for Panshao, the Centralized arrived, right in that very moment. Dijen put his sword away and went outside as a Centralized spaceship landed in front of the temple. The fighters on board offered him a choice: join us and destroy the temple, or fight alongside your family and die. And while Dijen is never one to back away from a challenge, the offer made him realize something: Holo, Panshao, and everyone he shared a home with, they don't act like they consider him family. So why should he consider them his? He must have forgotten what Holo once told him: ‘Hatred has a funny way of making your brother's smiling face look like a frown.’
