(Legends of Ga'Hoole) At one time, there was a King and Queen. They were the royalty of N'yrathghar, opposite of S'yrathghar. The Queen's name was Siv, and the King's name was Hrath. Both were kind, loyal owls. They had a friend named Grank. Grank often visted this place called 'The Beyond' and met a dire wolf called Fengo, the leader of a tribe, cheftain of all Clans in the Beyond. Dire Wolves all share one thing: Green eyes. Bright green eyes, like green fire that could break even the strongest of fryngots. Grank befriended the wolf and, after catching a few coals from the ring of volcanoes in the Beyond called the 'Sacred Volcanoes', became the first collier. Grank had a special skill: He could look into fires and see images, telling either happenings in the present or the future. Back to Siv and Hrath. One day, the two royals had an egg, but hagsfiends (Look to the dictionaries) attacked, along with their enemy, Lord Arrin. Hrath died, his head taken away, pierced on the edge of a glistening sword (A strange habit of Hagsfriends' when they kill) and Siv was forced to hide with her egg. In order to keep it safe, she gave it to Grank. Before he left, he noticed that she had something owls rarely have: Ga'. Later, Grank met an owl named Theo, who ended up being hte first blacksmith, Grank being the first collier. Later, the egg hatched, and they ended up naming the chick 'Hoole'. Hoole took Grank's firesight, making images in the fire confusing and strange for Grank. One day, the trio ended up going to the Beyond. Quick story; Once, Grank had seen a volcano. It had become clear like glass, and he saw a strange ember, green around the edges like the dire wolves' eyes. Grank dived for it and ended up being taken over by the power. One day, Grank just put it back, realizing it was too much for him. Back to the present. In the Beyond, Hoole dove into the volcano during a fight between the hagsfiends and a few others who had found out Hoole was a prince. He came out with the Ember, originally called the Ember of Hoole by the wolves, and was therefore crowned as a king. Later, he put it back because of all the trouble the Ember caused, ready for someone else to take it.
Later on, a new king called Coryn was born. I'll type that story in later, I'm lazy right now
Info about the Guardians of Ga'Hoole: They live in a giant tree called the Great Ga'Hoole tree. All Guardians take a vow: "I am a Guardian of Ga’Hoole. From this night on, I dedicate my life to the protection of owlkind. I shall not swerve in my duty. I shall support my brother and sister Guardians in times of battle as well as in times of peace. I am the eyes in the night, the silence within the wind. I am the talons through the fire, the shield that guards the innocent. I shall seek to wear no crown, nor win any glory. And all these things I do swear upon my honor as a Guardian of Ga’Hoole until my days on this Earth cease to be. This be my vow. This be my life. By Glaux I do swear." Guardians of Ga'Hoole, when of age, are seperated into chaws, and recieve an item in their bedding: Colliering: A piece of coal and a dried caterpillar. Also means that the owl also has to fly with the weather interpretation chaw. Weather interpretation: A dried caterpillar. Blacksmith: A forged iron tree. Search-and-rescue: A molted feather. Navigation: Ten nooties placed in the shape of the Golden Talons constellation. Ga'Hoolology: a milkberry. Tracking: a pellet.
Research-and-Printing: Unknown. They are trained in their chaws to do said thing. Colliering owls collect coals and embers. Embers and coals on the fly are called 'Bonk coals' and are the best for forging and stuff like that. Owls in this chaw take weather so they get used to flying through forest fires. Weather interpretation learn how to interpret the weather and tell what's coming. Navigation shows how to navigate through contellations, wind flow, etc. Ga'Hoolology is considered most boring, where they just take care of the tree. Tracking tracks things like where the enemy is and stuff like that. Research and printing researches things and prints them down. The blind snakes, also known as nest maids, also have their own guilds, the Harp Guild being thought the best of the best. They play the harp while the singer- usually a Snowy Owl- sings. Sliptweens are the best of this guild and leapt between each octave. For food times, the nest maids stretch out as a table while kids drink milkberry juice and eat whatever's there, roasted or raw, fur or no fur, bones or no bones. Those in tough chaws are often forced to eat food with fur and bones in it.
