Originating in the dark ages, one future Emperor would rise to claim victory over all knights of Java development. Trained in the ancient arts of RPG our Emperor fought many a battle with sys admins and project managers in order to spread the truth of clean, readable design code. Alas, our hero was tragically scarred in the line of battle while fighting with an IT manager that deemed it more important to patch an already failing system by appending an overly complex front end system. While ultimately triumphing in victory our hero gained a new perspective on software design. It was during this period that he turned to the dark side, enslaving those who did his bidding and bringing turmoil to those who stood in his way.
