Chapter One

Chapter One

Long ago, about fifty years to be precise, a discovery of an extraordinary race was made near a town called Fresa. These being had the same physical appearances of humans and many traits of a human as well, however they were not human. Many of the creatures had fur where skin would be while some had feathers with talons that were more humanlike. Most of the creatures appearances had hands that were like paws, unlike a humans had and though they resembled humans in their physical appearances, they were not humans. These strange creatures looked more like animals than the average human appearances, even though they shared many of the same traits of a human. They walked on two legs just like a human can, they spoke the same language that the humans spoke and even though their appearances were that of the animal that they were, they had the same body parts of a human; their arms, legs, feet, and hands even their genital areas were for the most part the same as a human’s.

When the humans first discovered them and asked them what they were, most of the creatures said that since their appearance was almost the same as theirs that they could be called ‘anthros,’ but since their bodies were entirely furry, they decided that it would be more appropriate to just call them what they were: Anthros. The Anthros were very peaceful and when they were discovered, they were not aggressive. In fact they were a very peaceful group and welcomed the other races kindly. Even though they looked a lot like the humans, being part animal, the usually thought more with their animal instincts, an ability that the humans do not have. But after getting to know one another, all of the races had accepted them for what they were, but it did not last forever.

When the Anthros were introduced to the town of Fresa, many of the inhabitants accepted they kindly and soon the Anthros began to learn the lifestyles of the races and there history. For a few months it seemed that everyone would live together in harmony, but it was not to be. Eventually the humans and some of the other races were starting to feel offended by the Anthros. They claimed that they hated them because they were better than the humans because they were mainly animals so they were more intellect. They also claimed that since they are so similar to the other races that eventually they would overpopulate the other races and the Anthros would be the most populated race in the town of Fresa.

However, even though many of the residents did not like the Anthros because of that, there were a good handful of people that stood up for them and said that the claims against them were ridiculous. Unfortunately, there were more people that were against the Anthros than with them and those that were against even them wanted them dead because they were abominations to the humans and some of the elves. Shortly after that, the Anthros who were once welcomed by all were now looked upon by many as monsters; while the ones who defended them, mainly the half elves, simply looked upon them as outcasts because they knew what it was like to be outcasts. It was not uncommon for brawls and sometimes violent protests to break out in the once peaceful town of Fresa with the Anthros having to fight to defend one another.

Then one day the two leaders of Fresa a male dark elf called Sebouh, along with a female high elf named Erien decided something must be done. Now Erien was very much for the Anthros and hated the violence that was being aimed towards them, while Sebouh had feelings of hatred for the Anthros unlike Erien. The two of them declared that all of the Anthros should surrender themselves to the town and told the people that if they didn’t they will be punished. This angered both the Anthros and even some of the races because they thought that Sebouh didn’t believe his own words while Erien sounded like she would not let any harm come onto the Anthros if they did surrender. They then told the Anthros that they were to surrender themselves to him and that they would take them far away from Fresa so that the violence would stop. And if they did not listen to him that they would be punished and taken by force. They gave them two days to make up their minds.

The Anthros did not know what to do. Erien sounded like she would keep her word to them, but they figured that Sebouh would kill them, either way. They wanted to leave the town of Fresa to find a new place where they could live, but they did not know where they could go. They could not go back to their homeland because the people of Fresa already knew where they lived. They did not know what they could do. But suddenly, seemingly from nowhere, a wood elf who called himself Kevril approached the Anthros. He said that he hates how many people in Fresa are treating them and that no one should ever be treated hit horribly. He went on to say that he was actually not from Fresa and that he came here when he heard about what was happening to them. He then offered them a chance to leave the town of Fresa and come with him to his homeland of the Ploemt Forest, which was on an island that wasn’t that far away, but far enough so that the residents of Fresa could not find and kill them. Because they feared the danger if they stayed, they agreed to go with him. But it wasn’t just the Anthros who left Fresa. Many of the elves humans and gnomes that stood for the Anthros wanted to leave Fresa as well for they too hated how so many looked down upon the Anthros.

So with not much time, on the day before their decision everyone who was leaving Fresa quickly packed up their belongings and everything important to them. In the middle of the night, to choose and headed towards the docks, where Kevril had a grand ship that was bigger than anything they had ever seen. And just like that, the Anthros and those who stood with them left the town of Fresa, without saying a word to anyone, all to leave behind the violence and to start a new life. When they arrived on the island of the Ploemt Forest, many were amazed that the forest was bigger than anything that they had ever seen and they loved how it looked perfect for them. And everyone who lived in the Ploemt Forest lived peacefully for the rest of their lives. But unfortunately, that too did not last.

About twenty five years ago, a group of fishermen from Fresa claimed that they had found an island that was inhabited with Anthros as well as other races during a storm. When he heard of this, Sebouh was furious to learn that the Anthros were still alive. So in order to finish what he started, he secretly sent out ships to the island in order to kill off the Anthros, without the knowledge of anyone. No one but him knew about the attacks and not even the Anthros knew who were trying to kill them off. In the recent years, many of the Anthros had successfully killed by those hired by Sebouh. Now the Anthros once again have to fight for their survival, but this time they have more help than before. Will the Anthros be killed off? Will they defend themselves? What are Sebouh’s true motives? Our story now begins in the present time...
