Hate Gives Rise To Another Superior Race!
Chapter 1: A Necessary Journey.
Long ago, before the world above was rocked and Luclin was shattered, thegods of Norrath walked this plane. They gave birth to a myriad ofraces. All of which were pitiful and in need of coddling, save one -Innoruuk’s Teir’Dal! They were ruthless, sinister, cunning, anddangerous. They were the very embodiment of His hate! For thousands ofyears they fulfilled his bidding and adhered to his tenets.
Then came the years of his absence. But this did not mean the end of thegreat Teir’Dal empire! The Dark Prince had left the Teir’Dal his words- seeds of disdain that grew darker within them. Those seeds were thentaken up and nurtured by Queen Cristanos the of Teir’Dal. She guidedthe empire and strengthened it even in times of isolation.
But not all Teir’Dal are strong. Some showed weaknesses during this timeand feel out of favor for speaking blasphemies about Her Ever-darkness,The Queen. Some attempts were even made upon her blessed life. Thetraitorous ones were all dealt with, slowly and agonizingly, but itmade Her Unholyness angry and distrustful of other Teir’Dal.
If she were to focus on the prosperity of Neriak and the entire Teir’Dalempire then she must have an army of allegiant warriors by her side! Ona mission of secrecy a band of Teir’Dal traveled from Nrriak to thedisdained lands of Faydwer. There they were able to acquire, throughclandestine acts, fae spirit blossoms.
Chapter 2: The Circle of Hate and Creation.
Queen Cristanos performed dark and beautifully abhorrent magics upon thecaptured spirit blossoms. She would allow them birth, and then torturethem with unspeakable acts. After the inevitably painful deaths, shewould perform further sadistic magics upon the resulting spiritblossoms. Over and over, the cycle of birth, torment and deathcontinued, thus molding them into something new – something superior tothe fae by far!
Chapter 3: Wings of Fate.
The wings of the fae turned out to be too fragile to withstand the violent acts.Time and time again, during Queen Cristanos’ tainting of the blossoms,the creatures were formed with withered and broken wings. She knew thisto be an opportunity to further remove them from the appearance of thepitiful fae, and to embody them with characteristics of creaturesassociated with such blissful aspects as decay and darkness.
Through further delightful twisting, she adapted the wings of dank cavecreatures such as bats and moths for her malignant children. But evento this day, a few arasai are born without wing or with wings toodamaged to allow flight. As a result they are granted arcaneconstructed wings on which they can still glorify Her Darkness in deedand word.
Chapter 4: Living in The City of Hate.
The arasai are now just as Queen Cristanos wanted. They are physicalembodiments of undying devotion for their creator and goddess, with apenchant for dark magics and pain. She has arisen as a tangible goddessupon this plane and deserves to be exalted as such, by all!
