Legend of the Black Panda

The legend speaks of two sons, born of the same bloodline, but destined to walk different paths.  One would be born and choose the darkness, and so, the other must choose the light.  Ursus, the first born consumed by hate, seeks to end the life of his opposite, Jai-Den.  Will the elder destroy all others and become like a god, or can Jai-Den fulfill his destiny and end the war?
