In 480 BCE, the Pythia met the Spartan King Leonidas I. As decreed by the Cult of Kosmos, the Pythia attempted to dissuade Leonidas from warring with King Xerxes I of Persia, whom the Cult supported. The Pythia told the King that his efforts to resist Xerxes' invasion would be fruitless and that Xerxes would bring order to chaos. As her words failed to sway him, the Cult threatened that Leonidas and everyone he loved, everything he stood for would perish.
