Parasaphi is a historical figure who, according to myth, searched out the seedstones. The myth is as follows:
In order to repopulate her fallen people, she climbed the peaks of Dara - the myth changes, listing different modern mountain ranges as the true peaks of Dara - to find stones touched by the Heralds themselves. She brought them to Nadris on his deathbed and harvested his seed to bring life to the stones. They hatched forth ten children, which she used to found a new nation. Marnah, I believe it was called.
