The first Tahitians arrived in about 200 BCE, after a long migration from South East Asia or Indonesia, via the Fijian, Samoan and Tongan Archipelagos. This hypothesis of an emigration from South East Asia is supported by a number of linguistic, biological and archaeological proofs. For example, the languages of Fiji and Polynesia all belong to the same Oceanic sub-group, Fijian-Polynesian, which itself forms part of the great family of the Austronesian Languages.
Purea, known formally as Te Vahine Airoro atua i Ahurai i Farepua in the geneaologies of the Papara family of Ar’i Ta’ima’i, was the second daughter of Teri’i Vaetua, the ari’i rahi, or paramount chief of the Fa’a’a district. By ancestral lineage Purea’s father also enjoyed a high-ranking status on the neighbouring island of Mo’orea. Her mother was Te Vahine Airoroau’a (also known in ancestral traditions as Te Ari’i o Maeva Rau). Purea was consequently the sister of Te Pau i Ahurai, who from birth inherited the highest title in Fa’a’a from their father.
Dawn of Man
Oh Wonderous Purea, we feel your great soul as we stand before you! Born the second daughter, you would never see the seat of your father. Though it was your destiny to rule paradise, you would not do so by slaying your sister. No, your machinations were grander still. You married another powerful chief and bore him a son. Playing upon the traditions and beliefs of your people, you sought to bestow Godhood on your child, making him the avatar of Oro and surely the lord of all Tahiti! But your plan was not to be. Your rahui ritual provoked war, and you were forced to flee, never able to gain the support you needed to reclaim your lands.
Brilliant and Great Purea, the peoples of Tahiti unite under you! The world is new, and only you know the secrets required to build paradise on Earth. Will you complete the ritual you started, and summon the war God? Will you spread the beauty of paradise throughout these lands? Can you build a civilization that will stand the test of time?
Introduction: "Maeva, traveller from the Moana! Let's celebrate our meeting with Tamurei, the ritual dance! Pahu and Himene!"
Introduction: "I am princess Purea. Welcome to the neverending dream called Tahiti, where the people do not know the meaning of sorrow."
Defeat: "Was a paradise on Earth such a dishonour to you and your beliefs that you came here to destroy it?"
Defeat: "If only my warriors hadn't been out of mana, the winds of war wouldn't have been in your flavour!"
