The Prophet Ether
A man named Coriantumr was king at the time of Ether.
Ether is a prophet, and goes about preaching faith and repentance to the people.
Ether teaches the people that belief in God leads to hope for a better world.
Despite the greatness of Ether’s teachings, he is rejected and exiled, and spends his days living in a cave, compiling the record of his people by day, and witnessing the downfall of the Jaredite civilization by night.
War and contention arises among the people, and many warriors try to take down Coriantumr.
Coriantumr, expert in the art of war, withstands all attacks against him, maintains his power, and does not repent.
Secret organizations emerge again and try to take the kingdom from Coriantumr.
The following year Ether prophesies to Coriantumr that unless he repents, the civilization will be destroyed, and a new one will come in its place.
Coriantumr ignores Ether’s prophecies, and continues to wage war with his opponents; attempts on Ether’s life are made, and his goes back to his cave to hide.
