The Legend – an origin story of Michelle’s world.
A long time ago only wild beasts roamed the land. One day a large meteorite crashed into the earth. Some time later, a rock cracked open and an adult dragon emerged. The dragon helped another dragon out of a rock. The two of them found a nearby cave, and made it their home. Though badly injured, the two dragons gathered the meteorite fragments and moved them to the cave.
The pieces of rock they collected were more than stone. They were eggs, with young dragons growing inside. Sadly, the dragons were unable to find all of the fragments.
Over time the young dragons hatched from many of the eggs. Most of the dragons were healthy, but a few were born with deformities. They were missing wings, legs, or had large scars, marks from their trip to earth. The legless dragons became wyrms of the sea, and the wingless became wyrms of the land. The rest have stayed largely unchanged; the dragons of the air that are still among us today.
Other eggs did not hatch dragons, but human-like creatures who were full of magic. They became the Fey. The Fey did not take one shape or form, but many. They were elemental and spiritual creatures, who found a place alongside the beast of earth. Over time they diversified into many races and creatures, some of whom are still considered members of the Fey.
