Chapter One of the story:
Chapter 1 - A God Arrives
*In a land ruled by the might of the Legendary Dragons lived a peaceful World of magical and mysterious creatures. The creatures called their Gods the Great Celestials. These beings were known throughout all Kingdoms of Gyo. Gyo is the world all these creatures and legendary beings call home. These great beings are powerful Dragons that live in the sky overlooking all the lands of Gyo. They live in the most center point of Celestial Kingdom surrounded by a sea of clouds.
The passage to the Celestial Kingdom is guarded by extremely powerful magic and only those with golden blood are deemed worthy to enter the Mysterious Gates. Those chosen to obtain the blood of a celestial are unknown and is said in legend they must prove their worth to the Gods. Other theories have been passed on over the years of how these great beings came to be.
Two hundred years ago those gates were open and rained down from the clouds were the most intimidating of Dragons. There magic was so strong it lit the air around surrounding them with colorful auras. It was a site too see. These Dragons were few in number only Ten in count. The local village of Ayren was in amazement at the scenes witnessed before their eyes.
After some moments went by one of the Dragons came over to one of the local villages and asked “we need Warriors, do you have any young and worthy Warriors?” The village went on to claim the village was small but there were two small orphan boys that were hard working and show promise if that would please them. After some more discussion went on the Dragon pointed to the younger boys both sitting on a large rock still watching from afar. They began to walk closer and when they were an arm’s reach away of this great Dragon he asked the boys “are you true Dragons?” The boys did not know how to respond and were a bit terrified. The Dragon pulled out his hand and touched both boys shoulders and a sharp pain filled them to their cores. They roared out in agony, the villagers were startled. The Dragon then said “you now share some of my blood, I am Drak the leader of the Celestial Dragons. Starting today I will be your teacher and you my students. You are now Draken and you Drako. I have been around guarding this World for centuries and fought many battles. I grow tired and need to find worthy warriors to one day take my place.” As the boy’s pain faded they looked up at Drak and said “we will do our best”. Drak smiled and let out a roar that shook the very World. He then grabbed both boys in his arms and with one jump took flight as did the other Dragons. Back into the sky they went, never seen again. The village did not know why they needed young Warriors as we have lived a land of peace for many years and the last Evil known was defeated by Drak himself as told in the tablets we read. As tribute the villagers built a temple where the Dragons visited here in Ayran. Hoping that they would return again.*
