Chapter 3 – The Reason. The Legacy. The Burden.
The armies afflicting Delphinea were formed by large and violent dragons. They were led by a maniacal black dragon named Darklek Domalis, user of dark magic and colder than ice in the winter. Under his command and own claws, many perished. Humans, gryphons and even dragons alike saw their demise and the demise of their beloved ones by the clutches of Darklek. Those who were not with him were exterminated on sight in the most brutal ways. Some even say that Darklek was sadistic enough to decapitate the heads of his victims and keep them as a sort of prize. Darklek attacked Delphinea in two different occasions but it was only on the second attempt that his attack focused on the kingdom’s capital city: Dolphinport. This last attempt was the peak of the Shadow Wars.
At the time, Delphinea was ruled by two dragons, a king named Ael Braveheart and his queen, Auren Lin Braveheart. The rulers had

Chapter 2 – A Kingdom is Born.
It wasn’t long until the original elder passed away, however. He was the oldest dragon alive in the known world by then. He was gone but his legacy was left behind. His homeland was named Delphinea in his tribute. The elder was known to enjoy sitting at the beach to watch the dolphins play at the bay during the sunsets. The village he lived in received the name of Dolphinport because of its proximity with the sea and because of the dolphins in the bay and it has become the capital of the newly named land.
The elder had a son on younger ages, though. He taught his son all what he would need to know to keep things in order. The elder had been elected the ruler of Delphinea due to his efforts to bring the tribes together in peace and because dragons were in greater number and Dolphinport have become its capital city. He was afraid someone else could ruin all what he have worked for so far and thus, passed down his knowledge to his son.

Chapter 1 – The Beginning.
Down on Earth, tales of dragons are passed down from generation to generation. Stories about magical, wise creatures but sometimes fierce and ferocious. Tales about dragons exist as far as the human history can tell. However, our species has never found any trace that such amazing beings have ever existed in our small water world. However, every legend has a start. What if dragons actually existed but records and proofs of their existence have simply been erased from our world, only remaining faint memories in the minds of our ancestors? Memories these that gained life in the form of the stories and tales we know today. Only God knows.
In a distant world in an unknown time, in an unknown realm, dragons live on, surrounded by magic and their own culture, slowly evolving throughout the millenniums. Somewhere in this unknown world there is a land by the name of Delphinea. A vast kingdom bathed by the sea on one side and hugged by other four kingd
