On Earth, its a popular misconception that the persona known as Santa Claus is a portly, white-haired gentleman with a fondness for red suits, long beards and jovial laughter. While on a superficial level several of these characteristics are true they are little more than titbits of a more incredible story - spanning generations, blending realities between the mortal world of man and the worlds of magic. Nicholas Augustus Claus is an incredible man. Renowned in our world as the face of Christmas he is lesser known as the founding Chairman of S.A.N.T.A. INC, an equally incredible company.
S.A.N.T.A. Inc. is the oldest and it remains the most prolific toy production and delivery company in existence. Its a multi-world conglomerate thats listed on the Fortune 500 of the ELFTEX with a brand thats recognised on five major worlds. Best-known as the founder of mass production and transport logistics, S.A.N.T.A. Inc. is a magnological revolutionary whose democratic work structures have set the basis for employee relations throughout the civilised worlds. Yet despite this notoriety S.A.N.T.As workings remain a mystery on the Earth, meaning its name remains inextricably linked to the jolly fat chairman whose image is franchised to the department stores that littler its surface.
Where Nicholas came from is the subject of conjecture for little is known of his history prior to his establishment of The Workshop at the North Pole. Why he chose such a location was a mystery. It was as remote and hostile a location as could be chosen, on a planet regarded by most as insignificant and remote. Certainly there were benefits to be derived from its tax-free status, which made his accountants happy, yet it offered little by way of facilities or transport links to the S.A.N.T.A. Inc. workforce, which made the decision more perplexing. Nicholas had his critics. They laughed at him when he asked for finance, they criticised his vision. Many hed regarded as friends refused him when he sought their help. They just didnt believe. How could they? They didnt know about the Gateway, about the Elves
Its a little known fact that the North Pole houses a Gateway. Known to humans as the Northern Lights, its purpose is not purely decorative. You see, in reality those lights are a Gateway: a multidimensional portal that acts as a link between the Earth and the magical worlds of dragons, elves, and fairies. Used correctly a Gateway can be an amazing tool. It filters the natural magic that accumulates about the poles, distilling it from its raw, erratic form into a positive energy that S.A.N.T.A. Inc. has learnt to harness. When I say that S.A.N.T.A. learnt to harness the energy, well, that isnt quite true: it was the Elves that learnt to harness the energy. Nick befriended the Elves and together they worked in harmony to make S.A.N.T.A. Inc what it is today.
