Rausten is probably the most beautiful place on the whole continent of Aurelis. Some would argue that Frelia's multiple frozen lakes and Renais' innovative architecture challenged and disapproved that statement but really nothing could challenge the raw cliffsides, peaks and forests that reflect what Rausten is, and what their inhabitants show, the untamed raw power of nature. Shapeshifters might have been the complete minority of Aurelis' general population but they were hardly the weaker race. Their abilities with both general weaponry and their Naga-gifted shapeshifting abilities should have guaranteed their victory but with one human soldier to each animal warrior victory only seems farther down the path. The unknown heroes story starts in the beast capital. Where the rivers and canals line the winding pathways of this mountain turned city. Each level on the mountain holds the different Raustenians tribesmen. At sea level, the branded live rather fitting considering how they are looked down upon, above them are the feline tribe, the canine tribe, the herons and at the very peak, the Manaketes. The mixing of the tribes were rather rare if not mandatory. But today few varied members of Rausten have received the summoning of the divine all for different reasons; combat prowess, healing skills, etc. They are to ascend to the highest temple where the Envoy of Naga waits for them with an odd blonde haired branded with her.
