In past history, people never lasted long in the Void – their souls would be consumed immediately by soul eaters within hours, or at the most days. It was until the discovery of OPHUR in CENTRAL AFRICA around the early 1600s that people were able to defend themselves. The discovery was made by KASONGO MUYUMBA who entered the Void around the Luba empire area (Democratic Republic of Congo) in 1603.
Kasongo established the first SOUL COLONY in CAIRO, EGYPT around the early 1600s. It only lasts a few years before being destroyed. He then travels the Nile river to the MIDDLE EAST where he establishes a new soul colony in CONSTANTINOPLE. A few years later he travels to EUROPE and establishes another in GENEVA, SWITZERLAND.
