Story: Long ago, there was a black cougar demon with the name of Shade. But the beasts that surrounded her were restless with their surroundings. To save a select few, the intelligent ones, she opened a rift into another universe. Giving up her life to form an endless forest, she sent the beasts there. Her consciousness drifted into a select animal, that of another cougar demon, her daughter. Her daughter took her mother's name, and ruled over the forest for many generations, finally, before her death, she figured out a way to choose other animals to join, in the form of a hallucination. She chose another animal, and her legacy continues on today.
