The Legend of Sdorica


The dragon becoming the ground underneath,

Humans gained liberty at the cost of their immortality.


Legend has it, that the world was once pitch black. Humans were once the puppets of the giant dragon Sdorica. It is said that humans live an eternal life, yet stripped off their freedom and living humbly under the dragon’s absolute authority.

One courageous warrior, by the name of Vendacti, voiced the desire to be freed from Sdorica; and received a cruel punishment from the dragon. Those who called ‘Displeased’ appointed Vendacti as their king, rising and defying their pre-made destiny; fighting against the ‘Contented’ who pledged their loyalty to Sdorica.

With his trusty spear at his hand, Vendacti became victorious after piercing his spear into the dragon’s heart, releasing a burst of flames that birthed the sun in the world. While the light had given a new form of life into this world, the descendants of the Contented still wish to revive Sdorica, and once again live forever.

The Legend of Snake God

Justice is the interest of the stronger.

Legend has it that when the world was created, the desert was blocked off by a barrier of wind, and there was no water nor vegetation. The Snake God used his body to smash the barrier, while the Snake Goddess bit her own flesh to feed us lowly ones her flesh and blood. Once the God and Goddess died, the barrier subsided and the snake people moved to a lush land to survive; thereby becoming the snake people's ancestors.




With this belief, the Desert Kings are taught by the Snake Temple to sacrifice the family and one's own flesh when the citizens are in need.[2]

Prologue

  New Version
On a bleak, carnage-filled battlefield, a dying soldier calls out to a princess in a ragged red dress, questioning her actions. She apologizes, and he questions yet again if this was all her doing, uttering her name, Angelia with his last breath. Angelia does not respond, but collapses wearily onto the ground herself.
  Old Version
Set at least three years[3] after the current timeline, a man named Uzziah is confronted by Angelia; asking why Uzziah still doesn’t believe in her. She continues talking to Uzziah regarding a way to solve ‘a problem’. However, Uzziah seemingly cut her words, telling her that there is no other ways but ‘this’. In hopes to prevent Angelia from stopping him further, Uzziah summoned a monster and approached by Naya and Pang.

As soon as the three of them got rid of the monsters that were blocking their way, they approached Uzziah. While Naya seemed to just want to interrogate Uzziah further and wished to ‘take him down’ immediately as soon as Uzziah wasn’t willing to cooperate, Pang, on the other hand, said that ‘they’ are already in this together and telling him that there is no need for Uzziah to shoulder all the responsibilities.

Angelia further adds that sacrifice is not necessary, while still hoping that they could work together. Uzziah, however, told them that it is too late for further discussion; telling that ‘the cycle’ will continue forever if it isn’t stopped now.

The trio fought Uzziah, and during the fight, Uzziah showed signs of hesitation. After the battle, Uzziah asks them in a sombre manner, why are they so persistent in stopping him. A big roar was heard after Uzziah mentioned a hint of Sdorica's resurrection, closing by a shocked Angelia upon hearing the word resurrection.

Pre-Civil War

Pre-Civil War arc is an introduction to the characters that will appear as Watchers get deeper into the story. Pre-Civil War spanning from Chapter 1 to 8, with a conclusion for each main characters during Pre-Civil War arc at Chapter 9.

Chapter 1

  On To Three
Naya Rosset, the Security Officer of Kingdom of the Sun's Royal Infantry, is patrolling on Paradise Prairie; investigating on the unusual activities of the wolves. It is there when Naya met Pang, a traveller from East Alliance, for the first time.

Pang and Naya got into an argument after Naya shot an arrow towards him. Naya is suspicious of Pang as travellers rarely stray far from the Capitol, not to mention that Pang is seemingly travelling alone way out in the Prairie. This does not help as Pang also answered Naya with 'short on time', almost got both of them into a fight. However, a screaming voice of a girl distracted them.

Naya and Pang found a girl named Tica Chevalier, a student of Rune Academy's Headmaster Charle Ceres. She was surrounded by wolves, and with both of them saving her, they decided to put down their fight for a while. After the fight against the wolves, they cleared up their misunderstandings and said apologies to each other. Naya, once again suspicious as to why wolves that do not usually roam in the South is now coming down at her station, with full of fear. Tica told them that the wolves' unusual activity be caused by irregular Soul Energy surrounding them.

Later on, Tica told them that she is in the Prairie to meet a person who's an expert in Soul Energy. Naya, upon hearing the name, shuddered as she knows the reputation of the said person as a hermit, living deep in the Prairie inside his hidden laboratory, doing some creepy experiments; she decided to follow Tica, however, in hopes to find out regarding the Prairie's irregularities. Pang, still searching for his companion, decided that it wouldn't hurt to check on the doctor's place for his companion's whereabouts.

Chapter 2

  What Makes A King
The story continues to the Totemtaff Ridge, where the Watchers are introduced to Dagger, an impulsive bear knight who is also Crushfang's adopted son, and Angelia, the Kingdom of the Sun's Crown Princess, met for the first time. In the introduction, Dagger, accompanied by his companion, Furygrowl, was sent by Chieftain Crushfang to escort the Princess for a meeting to discuss a peace treaty between the Kingdom of the Sun and Bear Tribes. Dagger was displeased at the fact that Crushfang agreed to meet Angelia, as Dagger didn't consider humans, especially those from the Kingdom, to be trusted for. This is due to a lot of illegal miners roaming around the Ridge to mine for the sacred gems of Totemtaff.[4]

On the other side, Crushfang seemed to have more trust with humans and shown to have a good relationship with Dylan, Kingdom of the Sun's Colonel that was stationed near the Totemtaff Ridge. Crushfang cited that he handed those prisoners to Dylan from time to time to avoid trouble with more humans, especially from those at the Kingdom of the Sun.[4]

While Dagger went to the base to report to Crushfang regarding the illegal miners he had caught just before, Angelia, along with her escorts—Jahan Augustinus and Sione Aldric—arrived at the Bear cave's entrance. Angelia was escorted to the base with Dagger, and she was excited to see the scenery and lifeforms in the cave; having warned by Dagger for several times to not wander around as the caves can be difficult to go through.[4]

Angelia soon met with Chieftain Crushfang, where they were discussing matters regarding illegal miners and presenting the point of view from both sides. As Angelia did not have a lot of experience beforehand in negotiating, she was told by Crushfang to come back and discuss further regarding the peace treaty after Angelia had taken the throne and had come up with better terms. Crushfang did not trust that Kingdom of the Sun will commit to the agreement, as past rulers of Kingdom of the Sun were known for enforcing harsh policies and often breaking up the agreements made between parties. Crushfang, however, made an exception to accept the meeting with Angelia as he had known the reputation of the late King William Carlos, Angelia's father, a ruler that according to Crushfang, was committed to his words, and a benevolent leader.[5]

The Chieftain leaves Angelia some words of encouragement and wisdom as their meeting ends and Dagger escorts Angelia back to the entrance of the cave. Along the way, they encounter a large group of bandits disguised as soldiers who kidnap Angelia while Dagger was distracted fighting them off. Back at the base, Crushfang was informed of the situation and relays the information to Colonel Dylan and Sione to handle the situation, who take their leave soon after.

Dagger questions Crushfang on their lack of help on their end, to which the chieftain calmly explains that they cannot intervene since it was an issue of the Kingdom of the Sun, not theirs, and tells Dagger to wait patiently for news instead. Seeing that Crushfang would not help, Dagger immediately takes on the responsibility of finding the princess himself. Angered at Dagger’s impulsiveness and disobedience, the 2 engage in battle, in which Dagger emerges victorious. As Dagger leaves to find Angelia, Crushfang observes how the young bear has changed, for a human no less.

At Paradise Prairie, Sione and Naya split up to find the missing princess. Dagger, also on the Prairie, spots a Glimmer wolf and a shady looking man, demanding the man to know where he kidnapped Angelia. He merely tells them not block his path and summons a group of monsters before escaping. Dagger asks for Koll’s help in sniffing out the missing rune chariot used to kidnap Angelia and soon enough they are back on track. As Koll part ways with him, Dagger continues on his search for the missing princess.

On another part of the Prairie, Angelia escapes her kidnappers, and manages to snag a pouch made of royal silks from one of their pockets. She doesn’t get far before they take her away again, but not before Angelia secretly drops her necklace for Sione and Naya to find her. Thanks to that, the 2 women manage to find Angelia 3 days later.

Sione tries to force the kidnappers to reveal the mastermind, but even they are unsure of their master’s identity. From the silken pouches, they conclude that only a noble could have been the mastermind. Since every noble is now a suspect, Sione suggests Angelia to hide and not return to the castle, lest they alert the culprit before finding out their identity. They come up with a plan for Angelia to hide in the Slums as no noble would step foot into the area, with Naya accompanying her while Sione reports back to Dylan and investigate matters together. The 3 bid each other farewell and part ways.

Chapter 3

  We Meet Again
Continuing Tica's journey after the team's departure in Chapter 1, Tica is back at the Rune Academy, where she immediately reports to Charle Ceres, the headmaster of Rune Academy. Charle questioned as of why it took Tica so long to come back from her journey, in which she told Charle that she took a detour and stopped by Atlas. Charle was angered by Tica's reckless behaviour, saying at how dangerous it is to go to Atlas alone.

Tica further told Charle that she had made new discoveries during this trip; among those is when she found a rune puppet with a black aura, and not long after she took the Ancient Seed, she met with a person cloaked with a black aura and arcane magic. Charle proceeds to tell Tica that it is none of her business to inquire further and told her that next time she should run and do not let her curiosity kills her. He gives her another mission to find the same seed, but this time in Whistlewood Valley. After giving her the task, Charle goes to Kingdom of the Sun to continue his work on Soul Energy extraction device for the Dragoneye Gem while Tica departs to Whistlewood Valley and meet with Leah, a rabbit demihuman surrounded by Whistlewood Valley's creature. After defeating the creatures, Tica introduced herself as a pupil of Rune Academy, in which Leah shows interest to study there. She admitted that she had tried to find the entrance and constantly getting lost. Tica said that it is because the entrance is made obscure to prevent ordinary being to enter and that finding the entrance is newcomer's first exam. Tica and Leah decided to help each other and make a deal that if Leah can help Tica find the seed as per Charle's instruction, Tica will lead the way to Rune Academy's entrance.

Chapter 4

  Under The Sun
The story shifts its focus back to Angelia and Naya, where both are planning a safe route back to the Slums. However, they are attacked by bandits who are revealed to be simply residents of the Slums fighting for a better life. A wild beast suddenly charges at the group, instantly killing the bandits. Angelia is greatly shaken, and laments her inability to help the poorer folk who live in such dangerous conditions as they approach the Slums.

At the Slums, Angelia and Naya pass by Nigel, de facto leader of the Slums, and Hyacinthus (AKA Cin), an older sister figure to many. They note their strange presence as the Slums is not a place one would take refuge if given the choice. Wandering around the outskirts of the Slums, Angelia is still consumed with doubts of what she was taught about the Kingdom. Here, she meets Lio, a young rabbit demihuman child (Leah’s twin brother) and helps him repair his broken flying toy named Flutterfly, much to his delight. The two introduce themselves to each other, with Angelia choosing “Angel” as a last minute alias. As a worried Hyacinthus appears, looking for Lio, they are attacked by a group of ragdoll monsters. Hyacinthus then thanks Angelia for her help in protecting Lio and the trio quickly leave the area.

Later on, Hyacinthus, Nigel and Lio enter Angelia and Naya’s residence to convey their thanks, where Angelia introduces Naya as her sister as part of their cover. They leave soon after, except Nigel, who voices his suspicions on their status as nobles with a hint of hostility in his tone. Naya does not deny this but adds on a cover story, which Nigel buys, assuring their secret is safe with him and leaves.

One day, Nigel is seen arguing with a tax officer about residential and income taxes and Hyacinthus steps in before he could do anything rash. The argument only becomes more heated but a monster alert goes off, interrupting them. Frightened, the officer quickly commands the Royal Infantry to retreat to preserve himself, leaving the residents of the Slums to fend for themselves.

During the fight, Hyacinthus gets bitten by void monsters and becomes infected. She develops bursts of unnatural crudeness and aggressiveness and even attacks Angelia twice. Nigel and the others attempt to heal her but her condition only worsened further. Unable to watch Hyacinthus suffer any further, Nigel gravely injures her. In her weakened state, Hyacinthus regains her sanity and still worries if she caused Nigel any trouble, to which he reassures her that she had been of great help to him. Hyacinthus then asks Nigel to do the finishing blow, and he obliges. Another monster alert rings out and a much larger horde of void monsters arrive. Lio and Angelia manage to successfully lure them away with her necklace that was made out of Soul Energy filled gemstones, but sacrificing Flutterfly to do so. In the aftermath, a grave for Hyacinthus was erected and the residents of the Slums came to pay their respects, including Angelia and Naya.

Sometime later, Nigel received reports from his own intelligence organisation about Angelia’s true identity. Yamitsuki, a mysterious hooded female otherwise known as Eve, appears before Nigel to inform him she will “assist [his] plot”. Nigel, knowing both her and Hyacinthus were previously opposed to his plot, questions her motive, to which Yamitsuki replies that she has “important news” and has “someone on the inside who is willing to help”.

Nigel and Yamitsuki later confront Angelia and Naya about Angelia’s true identity. Here, he reveals to them the purpose of his intelligence organisation: to reveal King Theodore’s crimes to the public. Angelia is shocked at Nigel’s accusations of Theodore, whom she views of as her kind uncle. Nigel then rebuts with various examples of his horrible deeds, including the fact that he planned the kidnapping plan of the princess herself, and that the reconstruction blueprint of the castle was not a simple maintenance that Angelia was led to believe, but a plan to make the castle fly. A flying castle, as ludicrous as it sounds, would allow Theodore to gain a literal upper hand in battle, Nigel explains, and Angelia refuses to believe the insinuation. Yamitsuki then adds on that the Dragoneye Gem, which the Sun Kingdom bought 45 years ago, contains an infinite amount of Soul Energy that would allow the castle to fly. Nigel then invites Angelia (and by extension, Naya) to join him to uncover to truth behind another secret object Theodore had bought from the Desert Bazaar by going to the desert, to which Angelia immediately agrees to, with the sole purpose of proving Nigel wrong and vouching for Theodore. Yamitsuki excuses herself from the journey as she has other errands to run. Nigel, Angelia and Naya set to leave the Slums in 10 days, with Nigel making Angelia promise him one last thing: that if he was right about Theodore, she would have to stop his plans with him.

Chapter 5

  Trail Of The Flower
Back at Paradise Prairie, Dagger is still finding the kidnapped princess. Spotting Roger standing beside the rune chariot used to kidnap Angel, a hot blooded Dagger quickly jumps to conclusions and attacks Roger. In a moment of distraction, Roger gets knocked out by Dagger as Kittyeyes, a cat demihuman, and Nolva arrive on the scene. Shocked to see an injured Roger, Kittyeyes demands an explanation for Dagger’s unprovoked attack. However, a strange aura flares up around Roger as he regains consciousness, who begins to rampage and attack mindlessly. Without any time to explain, the 3 work together in a temporary truce to subdue Roger, knocking him out cold once more.


As Nolva explains the situation, Dagger realises that he had mistaken the trio as Angelia’s kidnappers and apologises to Kittyeyes. With Dagger’s help, they start to make their way to Aosta to treat Roger before he awakens and rampages again. Along the way, Nolva explains Roger’s condition, void disease, and reveals that she has void disease too. After a few hours, the group arrive at Aosta’s lab. As Dagger questions the doctor’s personality, Nolva and Kittyeyes provide 2 very different descriptions, confusing the poor bear. Nolva thinks of him kindly, but Kittyeyes retorts, saying otherwise. Inside the lab, Dagger sets Roger down for Aosta to examine and follows Kittyeyes outside to gather the materials required to treat Roger.

Some time passes before Roger awakens, the treatment having been a success. However, his old memories did not return, to the disappointment of Kittyeyes. Spotting Dagger, Roger readies for a round 2 before Dagger apologies for his impulsive behaviour earlier, which Roger accepts. Dagger goes straight to the point, asking Roger where he saw the kidnappers run off the previous night. However, the kidnappers moved too quickly for Roger to see. Frustrated at being set back to square one, Dagger is at a loss of what to do next. Sensing his distress, Nolva invites Dagger to stay and rest at their village before deciding the next step as it was getting late. While Dagger is uncomfortable with the idea, Roger says to think of it as another escorting mission as he was still recovering, not wishing to stay any longer at Aosta’s lab.

Later on at night, Yamitsuki is seen reporting back to Aosta about a person heading for the Atlas borders. He then tells her that she may return to the Slums to tell Nigel of their plans after she finishes her errands. Yamitsuki reconfirms of Nigel’s safety if they stick to the plan, to which Aosta adds the condition that he does not go rogue either. The two part ways and the scene ends.

Chapter 6

  Crime And Punishment
The story continues in a new region, Maple Lake, where Pang has found his travelling companion he was looking for in Chapter 1, a bird with croissant-like horns named Puggi. Here, Pang reveals to Puggi his reason for coming here: to seek a revered martial artist who is said to dwell here and become his apprentice. Halfway through their conversation however, Pang manages to lose Puggi and goes to find him again.


Whilst searching for Puggi, Pang chances upon a frogodile, Karnulla, being attacked and quickly goes to his aid. Grateful for his help, Karnulla invites Pang to his home and offers him some food and medicine. Pang thanks Karnulla for the hospitality that he had not experienced for a long time, while Karnulla states he had never been thanked before. Pang realises that Puggi is still missing, and quickly leaves to find him, promising Karnulla he would return.


Along the way, a mermaid, Hestia, spots Pang and calls out for his help from a pack of wolves, to which Pang quickly obliges. As Pang questions how she managed to get herself into such a predicament, Puggi appears, answering his question. Pang and Puggi quarrel, and Hestia, amused by their banter, invites them to settle down in Maple Lake. Upon learning that Hestia knows of the master – Yan-Bo – Pang requests Hestia to introduce him, to which she does.


While initially doubtful of the master’s capability, their battle quickly dissuaded any doubts Pang had, and Pang pleads for Yan-Bo to take him as his disciple. However, Yan-Bo declines and leaves. Determined to change the master’s mind, Pang kneels unmoving before Yan-Bo’s house for several days. Intrigued by the tiger’s persistence, Yan-Bo questions Pang’s intentions, which he reveals that he aims to become powerful enough to be able to defend and protect. Just then, Puggi suddenly appears, worriedly stating that Hestia and the frogodiles had gotten into a fight.


It turns out that the quarrel was between Hestia and Karnulla. Both request Pang to help them, surprised at the fact that the other knew Pang as well. Torn between which friend to help, Pang remains silent, resulting in both Hestia and Karnulla expressing their disappointment of their new friend. Karnulla soon leaves, disgusted at the sight of Yan-Bo arriving, and Pang laments on making the same mistake again. At that, Yan-Bo accurately discerns that his past still haunts him, and that the psychological barrier must be confronted, which no amount of physical training can bring about.


Accepting Yan-Bo’s invite to take a stroll with him, he reveals to the master of his past. Pang used to be a Royal bodyguard, and during a rebellion against the corrupted system of the East Alliance, he was unable to choose between helping his friend, Yao, overthrow the system or protect the royals. As a result, Yao labelled him as a traitor to the Tiger tribe before getting killed. Losing both his best friend and the dignity of his tribe, Pang was exiled. Because of that, Pang became a lone ranger. Yan-Bo then deduces his desire to learn from him as an excuse to forget his painful past, angering Pang of accusing Yan-Bo of not being to relate to his dilemma. Yan-Bo simply offers Pang some fruit and wine to eat, which he accepts. As he leaves, he gives Pang one last bit of wisdom in his usual riddled manner. However, before Pang could clarify, he doubles over in pain and blacks out.


Upon waking up, Pang finds himself alone in Maple Lake. As if he were in the past, he rushes off to help Yao, but is interrupted by his inner conscious that had physically manifested as a dark version of himself, who constantly tries to guilt trip him. Pang manages to defeat it, and hurries off once again to stop the tragedy before it’s too late, where he fully awakens to reality, and wonders if it were all a dream. Puggi rushes onto the scene worriedly, stating that Hestia and Karnulla are at it again.


Having found his answer through the dream, Pang makes a clear decision this time to stop Karnulla from killing Hestia out of vengeance. At the same time, he requests Hestia to let him go, not wishing to see them hurt each other, and tells her to not interfere with the frogodiles’ nature. Angered at Pang’s decision, both Hestia and Karnulla storm away, denouncing their friendship with him.


Saddened that he had lost 2 new friendships in one blow, Pang turns to Yan-Bo, wondering if he had made the right decision. The master deems the lack of bloodshed worthy of celebrating, and reassures Pang through a poetic verse, advising him to let matters cool off naturally and live in the moment, which Pang ponders upon among the drifting maple leaves.
