Lord Avatar I was also known to people as John Edwards. He founded the movement shortly after a significant experience whilst camping in Macclesfield Forest around 5th January 2000.
He was divorced at the time of the visit from the Avatars and he hated his factory job boss. He had been a keen camper for much of his life, being a boy-scout in his youth. He regarded camping as a holiday away from his issues in the city.
He had been rewarded by Solara with visions of the future.
John died from an untreatable illness in 2010, shortly after he resigned from his position.
John grew up in the Lancashire area. He was a model student in school and took on many extracurricular activities after school, most notably, the Scouts.
John had many menial jobs working on assembly lines in factories. It was not until the visit that he felt any sense of direction or purpose.
John was married a number of times. Each marriage resulted in divorce and he had no biological children. John died of cancer around the year 2010.
The Faith Of Solara
John founded the faith shortly after he was visited by the Avatars known as Ashrah & Ellrah. He wrote The Righteous Jardacia after that visit. He spent a few years writing and rewriting the words of the Avatars as they instructed him to do.
After a couple of years, John began to spread the message to small audiences. He did this for a while and the people loved him. They joined and became full members of the faith, staying loyal to him until his resignation in November 2009.
He appointed Ashley Ellison to the position of High Priest in early 2009 and he was diagnosed with a terminal illness later that year which resulted in him resigning and allowing Ashley to take the position of Lord Avatar.
Much of John’s original writings were lost after his resignation and death.
