Ancient Almia was ruled over by a kind and noble king. The king had three sons that were crowned as a prince. The princes' fell into bitterness with each other and began fighting recklessly. The king reluctantly banished his sons: The oldest in red was banished to a volcanic island, the second son in yellow was banished to a desert island, and the youngest was allowed to stay at the castle. The once kind king felt guilt over his decision and became wracked with anger, solitude and bitterness. The darkness in the king eventually consumed him and formed the Shadow Crystal, a massive crystal that turned people's negative feelings into power. The Shadow Crystal became a threat to the kingdom of Almia and the youngest prince willed himself to shine with a light that could stop the shadow crystals. Supposedly, the other brothers did the same and the three sealed the Shadow Crystal underground in the Chroma Ruins were a Darkrai would eventually become its guardian. The brothers then left the light they used to defeat the Shadow Crystal, the Tears of Princes crystals in the places they were banished to and the legend of The King of Almia and the Three Princes would be recorded in a children's book before becoming lost to time.

Altru Inc.

Time passed and the Almia region became a modern society. An oil company called Altru Inc. was founded by Doyle Hall, who passed it on to his son, Brighton Hall. The original Altru building was located at the Chroma Highlands where oil was pumped. Brighton discovered the oil fields were running out and feared for the company's and Almia's future. It was around that time he discovered shards of the Shadow Crystal and instantly felt their power. Brighton eventually found the Shadow Crystal, but a Darkrai kept everyone at bay so all they could acquire were the dark shards. Eventually, Brighton held a renaming ceremony for his only son and heir, Wyatt Hall who was renamed Blake Hall, as close to the Shadow Crystal. However, the Shadow Crystal's evil power had corrupted Blake, who eventually kicked his own father out of the company and vowed to rule the world. Blake became obsessed with the Shadow Crystal's power and formed an organization to acquire the Shadow Crystal and rule Almia.
