A boy by the name of Mantiado was from Italy, Sicily and was an orphan by the age of twelve. Both of his parents were killed when a riot broke out. Montiado was raised as a survivalist and rarely encountered with anyone. He viewed his parents death as a message from God saying that he is unworthy to be in his prescense. This cause Mantiado to go into a meek lifestyle.

The King told Mantiado that in the cellar, there was a room with a treasure that was passed down by the Gods and it will take you places like no other. Mantiado began asking every question possible, the king said you m ay do as you please but you will experience a pain lke no other. Mantiado concluded that his life would not get any better anytime soon and asked how he could find this place. The king handed Mantiado a golden key and said follow the tunnel, it is door made from turquoise and the treasure lies within. Before Mantiado could thank the king, a connon bursted through the wall and struck the king. mantiado raced into the cellar and found the door.
Mantiado had never seen anything of such beauty. Teh door was a work of art. He placed the key into the lock and he gazed upon the treasure. It was a box-like device made of metal and diamond.
