In the ancient waters of Lake Titicaca a god rose with one burning purpose. His purpose was to create a guardian for the land of Cuzco. Knowing that he, himself, would be unable to protect the land forever he instead created an enchanted staff that would grant it's user incredible solar powers. He plunged the staff into the ground, deep within the lake where it sat for thousands of years.
It was unearthed much later locked within a tablet rune hidden in an Incan temple. Armando Guitez and his men were excavating the site when Armando caused an unhappy event which forced Steve Trevor and Maria Mendoza into the temple to flee from him. Seeking the hidden evil within the template Armando smashed the first tablet making him the host of the same evils that the Incan's sought to defeat. Maria shattered the second tablet by accident unleashing Tapac-Yauri and making her Wonder Woman.
