The twin planets, Garafrice and Illainos, had been born together with the dying of an old star and the birth of a new. One shroud in darkness and another in light. It did not take long for superior species to develop on both- the soldiers of Garafrice and the children of Illainos. The Garfs and the Illai. The Illai thrived, in love with the world and it's light, blessed with longevity and wisdom and patience. Few in numbers, but kept company by their brothers and sisters, the Resinvin. Dimension skippers and dragons. They were explorers and wanderers, with no desire to destroy, but to preserve. Which would end up being their greatest weakness. The Garfs, deprived of warmth, grew cold at heart and pale at skin. Bitter and without love- but strong. Soldiers. Built to endure. However, they also grew greedy in their despair. They wanted what was not theirs. And they will have it.
