The Monastery of Unbreaking Waves is one of the Houses of Perfection, located on Wavebreak Haven, an isle off the coast of Jalmeray. Only recently re-established after centuries of desolation, its fighting style is defensive, emulating the flow of water past obstacles.12

History

Eleven centuries ago, Falehetu, a student of the Monastery of Untwisting Iron, lost a bout to an Unbreaking Waves student. Furious over this loss, he used a forbidden technique to create an earthquake that unleashed a tsunami upon the Monastery of Unbreaking Waves, drowning most of its students. The people of Niswan knew that the tsunami was magical, but never learnt about Falehetu's involvement and assumed that the Monastery of Unbreaking Waves brought destruction upon itself.1

As the survivors attempted to rebuild the Monastery of Unbreaking Waves underwater, they were attacked by Falehetu, who was also caught in the tsunami and transformed into a kurobozu. They managed to fend him off and imprison him in a partially restored building, but suffered great losses in doing so and were forced to abandon the half-reconstructed monastery under the sea.1

Many years later, Wavebreak Haven was settled by a community of undines, who found the ruins of the Monastery of Unbreaking Waves with records of its techniques still intact, and began to learn and practice its traditions. After Falehetu's defeat in 4718 AR, the Monastery of Unbreaking Waves was formally re-established.12
