It all started with a group of Nightwing scientists. They bred two willing subjects; an animus Nightwing and an Icewing with unusually cold frostbreath. The children were hybrids with unusual abilities. Due to a bit of magic, the genes were combined into a new gene. They dubbed it the 'dry ice' gene, due to the fact the kids were able to breathe deathly cold nitrogen, and at the same time had the magical capabilities of an animus.
The scientists were excited. They used the dry ice genes, creating more and more of these dragons; now dubbed the 'Dry-Icewings'. As they created more, the dragons would occasionally mate, and create children with the same abilities.
But soon, they became hateful of their creators.
They didn't want to be experiments; hidden from the world.
So they rebelled.
Due to the scientists' greed, there were more than enough Dry-Icewings to overpower them. Soon, they were free.
They changed their name to Nitrowings; a more appropriate name for the dragons which had been inadvertently turned into a new species. For about 200 years, the Nitrowings got along alright with the other species, abiding in the unclaimed territory between the ice and sand kingdoms.
But as time went on, they became more aggressive. They started a war, viciously killing many. As time passed on, one by one, the other tribes surrendered, unable to fight against the Nitrowings' animus abilities when animus magic was so rare for the other tribes.
So the Nitrowings took over.
They built a wall around the entire Icewing territory plus their own; as they now owned the whole land of Pyrria. It was enchanted; Nitrowings could walk through the wall like it was air, but any other species would get trapped in the middle of the wall until either a Nitrowing found the dragon and dragged them out or if the dragon died. Flying over it wasn't an option; an invisible barrier at the top would make the other species simply bounce off.
There was a similar wall surrounding a new island; the place where the Nitrowings forced the dragons to flee to.
The place was like a much smaller version of Pyrria. It held a tiny desert, a mountain, and a swampy forest. Nightwings, on the other hand, weren't quite so lucky.
They were trapped on the mainland when the Nitrowings took over. Due to their ongoing loathing for them, the Nitrowings prevented the Nightwings from leaving and captured them. The luckiest escaped and now live on the island with the other species. Those that weren't were either killed or captured and turned into either slaves or prisoners.
But, not all the Nitrowings are born animus, and they are shunned, and abandoned. These Nitrowings also don't hold a feud with the other species, and instead live on the island with them.
Each tribe has two leaders, and together, the sixteen of them just may be able to think of a plan to overthrow the Mainland's Nitrowing Queen and bring peace back to Pyrria. But can they do it before it's too late?
The other species have CHANGED how they do things! This is what is different:
A Queen will teach two or three dragonets (of any species) how to rule. When a Queen dies, the to-bes of that species will be voted on and whichever one has the most votes replaces the dead Queen.
The two Queens of a species MUST agree on something before it goes out as an order.
Orders for the entire island MUST be agreed on by a minimum of 12 out of the 16 leaders.
You can only have ONE Queen! Other people need a chance to be leaders too!
No limit on characters, but you HAVE to use them.
No being overpowered.
DON'T control other people's dragons without permission!!
Try to use good English.
Hate the person, NOT the character.
Wait until your bio has been accepted before RPing!
