Bio: On one fine winter's morn, Paul McPherson was walking in the enchanted forest where the birds sang songs of glee and rodents of the wood went to and fro playfully. The evergreens were shimmering in the basking glow of the sun and the little creeks and ponds slowly trickled through the pathways of pebbles. As Paul explored he found a clearing where their stood an enormous redwood. He was enjoying it's sights and smells when suddenly out came a tall Mexican man from a hole in the redwoods trunk. "My name is Edward Wade, the ranger of the forest, who be you?" said he "I am Paul McPherson, keeper of the trees" the other said As the day went on they shared many stories and told many tales such as the great fight between the demon of water, Adam Comstock, and the wielder of flame, Erich Skoor. Legend had it that those two had been dueling since the beginning of time in that very forest. Right when Paul was about to bid Ed adieu and go back to his chateau on the banks of the polliwog pond a very loud noise was heard from outside the redwood. "What in the devil is making that racket?" asked Edward "Well, by jove, there is only one way to find out." Stated Paul As Paul and Edward poked their wee heads from the redwoods mighty trunk they saw the two gods of dueling themselves, Adam and Erich, fighting right outside in the clearing. In that moment Erich held up his sword of fire and Adam surrounded himself with an unbreakable barrier of water. "I shall scorcheth thee with mine sword and crush you to the ground once and for all you sack of wine! This duel has gone on long enough!" cried Erich "NEVER!!!" Adam rolled out of the way as Erich flaming sword collapsed on the ground in a heap of burning leaves and shriveled pines. "Stop this madness!" declared Edward as he jumped between them and held out both hands, "this fight has gone on long enough!" Adam and Erich froze in amazement and squinted at the beaming lights that were shinning around the figure of the ranger. He was like a god as his height seemed to double and mustache seemed to thicken before their very eyes. "Then what shall we do? We have been dueling for eternity, it's the only thing we know," said Adam. Erich nodded in agreement. "You shall go on a quest to a far off land called Summersong Dale. Their you will find two guitars made of pearl, a bass made of ebony, and a drum set made of rich mahogany. If you succeed in bringing these items back the curse that was put upon you to duel for eternity will be broken. However, if you fail the entropy of the universe will increase, ergo, existence as we know it will be lost forever." Erich and Adam ran off as quick as lightening to the land beyond the sea to find the precious objects that would make them free. Edward and Paul went their separate ways to see what the future would hold in store for them. Two years later the badgers and the squirrels started to hear whispers of a nameless duo that had crossed the sea and entered the forest on a midsummer's eve. It was Adam and Erich back from the journey of far away lands and adventures unknown. They found the clearing and as always stood the redwood of Edward the ranger. They knocked the secret knock of trust on to the redwood's hefty coat of bark and almost instantly Edward came crawling out of the almighty tree's belly. "Aw, I see you have finished your quest, but the journey is not over yet" he declared. Edward put his hand in the air and snapped his fingers to produce a sound that could be heard all the way to the Magic Mountains. In his hand their appeared a flute made of bamboo and reeds from the land of Pandoucher. He then did a jig and played a fine tune. "What was that enchanting melody?" asked Erich "Why that is the song of the messenger Trenton. I have summoned him to go fetch Paul from his home at Polliwog Pond and bring him forth so that my mission can be complete." Suddenly Paul appeared in the clearing at the side of the triumphant trio. He found himself sitting behind a curious instrument made of rich mahogany. He looked to find Edward and Adam both suited with guitars made of the pearly white pearl and Erich playing a bass made of ebony as flawlessly as a magic duck swims in water. As they each played their instruments with mighty precision the light of the forest swirled around them and conjoined them into one entity. Hence, Theory of One was born. The End.
