The Mighty Nachish, God of Palekekona, was once a man named Preston Galera who lived on the Island of O'ahu in Hawai'i. Preston was the Founder and President of the Hawaiian Island Paranormal Research Society (dba Hawaiian Island Ghost Hunters) and was very active in the paranormal research and investigations field. During an investigation of a site believed to be located directly on a lay-line, Preston discovered an ancient artifact that was glowing on the ground. After taking readings and documenting the finding, Preston reached down and picked up the artifact which resembled a pyramid with the symbols GV imprinted on it. As he dusted of the artifact, it suddenly shot out a beam of light which opened a portal in mid air. Shocked, Preston attempted to step back but was instantly pulled towards the portal by a strong force. He fought with all his might and tried to call out to the rest of his team, but even the sound waves of his voice could not escape the pull of the portal. He eventually blacked out and was sucked into the portal.
When he awoke, he could see nothing but a blinding white light that was pure and warm.
