For over hundred and fifty years, a new King was hidden away, a boy never seen by even his people and raised by two different groups of protectors chosen by the ancestors.

This King would be the first of his line to protect his people. This was the first King to ever wear and use iShaka or Zudium in Western terms and born of man and a god. This half man, half god King was to be tested and prepared for the first contact with monsters from across the seas or simply Europeans, preparing his successor's path even better.

Born of Shaka and a daughter of a farmer whose name remains a secret, Zett for Zulu or traditionally known as Shaka Zulu, uMkhuseli ka Zulu, son of Shaka ka Nguni, the protector of the Heaven People, both in heaven and on Earth, achieved immortality through the teachings of his protectors, something his father, Shaka ka Nguni did not have enough time to learn.

During this time, the Heaven People were going through a very difficult time of their lives as they had killed their protector for power. This was because of lack of unity from within the African people. The enemy divided them and conquered. Many other African people were already slaves as Europeans or monsters like their prophecies foretold, had made contact with them hundreds of years before they met any of the Nguni people or the last of his kind, Zulus.

At the time monsters landed on the shores of Africa, African people had customs and ways of life that were very precious. They could not even share their knowledge with other African people, especially ones speaking a different language or from a different tribe. They were very secretive about their knowledge that they did not share it in ways that could lead it into the wrong hands.

Some cultures such as the Xhosas and Zulus, still try as hard as they can to keep what they do to young men in the mountains, a secret. This knowledge is verbally passed down only to or between those who make it to the mountain.
