Sources A Planeswalker's Guide to Alara, The Soul of the World

Progenitus, the Soul of the World, is a being of yet unspecified nature on the plane of Alara who, according to the Animas' visions, had become bored with creation and unleashed five storms to consume it: Wildfire, Earthquake, Windstorm, Flood, and Void.

His actions were stopped by the elf Cylia who forced it (via poisoned dagger) to assume the form of a five-headed hydra avatar to stop his plans; although Alara was already broken into the Shards. Due to the lack of blue and black mana in the shard later-known as Naya, he fell into a slumber, in the Valley of the Ancients.

Millenia later, he appeared to Mayael, the newly appointed anima, and asked to speak with Cylia, unaware that she had perished a millenia ago. Prior to the Conflux, Progenitus reunited into five heads, telling Mayael to build up an army to counteract Sarkhan Vol's invasion of dragons.
