A long, long time ago, on a starry night different from no other, a lone meteorite fell from the bejeweled sky unbeknownst to the slumbering denizens of Vana'diel. From the superheated core of this extraterrestrial rock emerged an entity of unadulterated evil—the physical manifestation of darkness itself.
The name of this twisted being was Ullegore.
His sole purpose: the complete and utter eradication of joy and jubilance from the face of the world.
And so it was that the self-styled demon king, Ullegore, set out to perpetrate his nefarious plot to plunge Vana'diel into an unending era of eternal gloom. He traversed the world over in search of any opportunity to corrupt the essence of festivals—the pinnacle of celebration in civilization—with bitterness. A wave of his cadaverous hand saw smiles wiped off the faces of unwary festival-goers. Soaring spirits were brought to heel, and minds were instilled with a wretched mélange of sorrow, despair, and regret. With nihilistic pleasure, Ullegore rendered enthralling fireworks limp with dampness, reduced refreshingly sweet snow cones to a sticky dripping mess, and transformed perky, luminescent goldfish into decisively unattractive moat carp.
It was when the people were pushed perilously close to the edge of hopelessness that a dauntless defender of justice and all that is good and fun appeared.
The name of this indefatigable heroine was Mumor.
Her power: the ability to convert the boisterous support of loving fans into a formidable force with which to vanquish evil.
An aspiring young starlet, Mumor tirelessly devoted herself to undoing the damage dealt by Ullegore, restoring smiles and laughter to festivals and, in the process, endeared herself to scores of fans with her vivacity and girl-next-door good looks.
But it was only a matter of time before she would have to come face to face with this new evil tormenting the realm…
“Mumor, my dear! The Sunbreeze Festival on the two central continents will be Ullegore's next target! Make haste, before all is lost!”
So ordered by her father, the genius inventor Professor Sarmoega, Mumor hightailed her way to the Sunbreeze Festival in the guise of “Fantastic Fraulein Mumor,” an ordinary stage performer. But nothing could have prepared her for the stifling air of melancholy that pervaded the festival site upon her arrival. In the place of hordes of fans, lining up for a glimpse of their favorite frolicking fraulein, was an oppressive void of deathly silence.
“The Sunbreeze Festival will suffer an unimaginable fate if I don't put a stop to Ullegore. But, without my fans here to cheer me on, I'm completely powerless…”
Only with the hearty encouragement of her fans will Mumor be able to accumulate sufficient power to unleash her ultimate attack, the Dancing Force, and forever put an end to the evil demon king and his vile aspirations.
“Everyone, please lend me your strength! I need you now more than ever!”
Mumor is in dire need of your aid!
Answer the call by cheering her on in her decisive battle against the irrepressibly evil demon king, Ullegore, at a Sunbreeze Festival stage near you!
Currently touring the land as a top-selling stage performer, Mumor is the only daughter of Professor Sarmoega, undisputed genius inventor and head of the Research Institute for Paranormal Phenomenon (RIPP). Her true identity, however, is that of a superpower-imbued fighter who has received special training specifically in preparation for her destined battle against the evil demon king, Ullegore. With her father's miraculous invention, the aptly named “Miracle Wand” in hand, Mumor transforms from an affable if somewhat ungraceful young lady into the irresistibly adorable superheroine, Fantastic Fraulein Mumor. Her claim to fame is the ability to convert the boisterous support of loving fans into a formidable force which, when fully charged, can be used to unleash an ultimate attack against the enemy for massive damage.
