In the Era of magic and fire, the realm the dragons resided in filled with magic - they shared with Astrals [Powerful peaceful beings]. The dragons did not want to share the magic, so they initiated a war that would last many seasons. They showed no mercy as they brought fire upon the Astrals. The Astrals fought as best as they could but It wasn’t enough.
The war waged on and dragons figured out a way to banish the Astral’s ethereal bodies to the human realm so they would not be able to access the magic without their physical bodies. This was a great and successful plan. But the dragons didn’t take into account that humans with strong spirits have slight access to some magic. The Astrals capitalised on this and took advantage of the situation. Astrals begun to fuse with high spirited humans, once again gaining access to physical forms and a great deal of magic. On top of that the Astrals can now traverse easily through the realms like the dragons.
This turned the tables. The dragons fought hard, but they couldn’t harm the Astrals because they had no physical form of an Astral, and they couldn’t harm the human because the Astral protected his/her human alternate with this new immense power. The dragons realised what they needed to do and it was going to change the face of the war for good.
All the dragons left the realm under the command of Zazura the three eyed elder dragon. The command was to raze humans and Astrals alike, leaving no trace of their existence. Many lives were lost, humans, Astrals, all other life forms in the human realm suffered. Azusa, daughter of the elder dragon saw the destruction, and the fire in her eyes dimmed as she saw the pain they caused. She knew she couldn’t stop this, but if she could save some or even just one. Then maybe, just maybe she can redeem her kind.
A young lost Astral had found a baby crying while Azusa searched, and had infused the baby’s heart in order to heal his torn limb, one of the special traits of the peaceful beings. The baby stopped crying immediately so that other dragons wouldn’t find them.
Azusa eventually finds this baby, and does the one thing that had never been seen in the dragon realm, she showed mercy and thought she could fill his heart with love while keeping him hidden from her father. But he would be their demise, because on that fateful day when both being pain and suffering combined, the young Astral and the young baby had seen the departure of their kind into the afterlife. Together they will become the Exodus of all magic users good or bad.
"Mercy is for the weak, and I will show them none."
