The Great Dissonance was a cataclysmic war that eradicated two ancient nations 4000 years before the beginning of ''Wargroove's'' story... but since the age is ShroudedInMyth, we learn nearly nothing about the participants, why the war between them started, or who the aggressor was. However, there are some implications. In a codex entry unlocked near the end of the game, we learn about "cacophonic magic", the wizardry practiced by the Kingdom of Cacophony. Very little is known about it, [[BlackMagic except that its very powerful and has a habit of corrupting its users]]. Furthermore, only two examples of cacophonic magic are encountered in the story; both of which are sapient [[ArtifactOfDoom Artifacts Of Doom]] that tempt their wielders and lead them down the path of becoming despotic conquerors. Given this, its entirely possible that Cacophony was actually a villainous empire, and that the creation of Requiem was their last-ditch effort to crush Silmor once and for all, only to be all but wiped out themselves when they realized [[EvilIsNotAToy they couldn't control it]]. This would make Princess Elodie TheAtoner, as her self-sacrifice and obsession with keeping Requiem out of everyone's hands is tied to a desire to prevent a repeat of Cacophony's reign of terror.
