Long ago a great being known as Eloheem gave rise to the Kingdom of Westrium. Although He was superior over all creatures, He bestowed upon them the gift of free will. It was a wonderful but very dangerous gift. Eloheem knew that the creatures’ loyalties would be swayed by an evil wizard and they would rebel against all that was good so He created a plan that would save the kingdom from falling into total ruin.
The evil wizard turned out to be one of Eloheem’s most trusted companions, the magician Lucius. Lucius was vain. He believed that the creatures in Westrium should be forced to follow all those in the Kingdom of Havlon. When Eloheem refused to withdraw the creatures’ gift, Lucius rebelled against all that was good. He craved power. He convinced other magicians to follow him with empty promises of wealth and happiness. Eloheem cast Lucius and his followers out of Havlon. Eloheem knew it was not the end. Lucius would not be defeated so easily, even in exile.
Lucius constantly obsessed about his revenge against Eloheem. He spent many hours pacing the floors of his new formed palace plotting vengeance. What could he do that would cause the greatest pain to Eloheem? What could he do that would cause Eloheem to beg him for mercy? Finally, it came to him. Lucius decided to strike at Eloheem’s most valued treasures, the hearts and minds of His beloved creatures in Westrium.
Lucius started with the weakest creatures, the humans. He promised the humans they would be smarter, stronger, and happier if they followed him. Many quickly became victims of his lies.
Next, he went after the Nerians and Fairies. They were not swayed
easily. Lucius had to work long and hard to convince them to follow him. He
promised them a better life filled with happiness and prosperity. He persuaded
them that Eloheem had only His best interests in mind and did not really care
about them. His plan succeeded and he claimed many Nerians and Fairies as his
followers. He renamed his dark Fairy followers the Sprites and his Nerian
followers the Baydorns. The Baydorns decided to live on water and the Sprites
decided to live near them. Both the Baydorns’ and Sprites’ appearances started
to change over time. Their skin tone turned from olive to ivory and their once
merry eyes and expressions turned cold and evil.
Over the years, Bonders began to choose sides as well. Cheetahs and Coyotes chose to bond with the followers of Eloheem, while Tigers and Wolves chose to bond with the followers of Lucius. The only creatures unaffected by the rebellion were the Slythers. They resided on a secluded island and killed all who approached.
Afterwards, Lucius and the other rebellious Magicians, who now called themselves Wizards, went to the furthest southern regions of Westrium. They were backing away yet still manipulating the races of Westrium.
Eloheem knew this was going to happen. He would fulfill his plan many years after the rebellion. The reason He did this was to test the loyalty of His subjects.
During those years Eloheem’s trusted companions, Magicians, went and encouraged the creatures that followed His rule. There was also a problem with Eloheem’s followers; some did not associate with others, causing them to be weaker. The Humans left the Nerians many years ago. Now they have forgotten about the Nerians completely, believing that they never existed except in legends.
