When Fyros bold with miners' hands came upon a lair.

His Life

Birth of Cerakos II
Cerakos II led the Fyros people into the Prime Roots, but he also found death there while fighting one of the first waves of Kitin at the beginning of the Great Swarming.
Not being able to light a fire in the Primes Roots without causing a catastrophe, his body is embalmed while waiting to be cremated by the Sacred Fire according to the tradition.
A pyre was erected to incinerate the embalmed body of the Emperor Cerakos II. The first bricks of Pyr were laid on this very spot, and this pyre became the great gate of the city. A commemoration of the burning of the Emperor takes place every year under the moon of the winter solstice.
