Gems of Genesis
The Genesis Gems are magical crystals originated from the tears of the Draken. They embody the ancestral emotions of the Draken: anger (fiery ruby gemstone), sorrow (watery sapphire gemstone), remorse (gloomy amethyst gemstone), serenity (woody emerald gemstone), and acceptance (bright gold gemstone). The different types of magic contained in them generated the landscapes of Oniria. From the ruby gemstone came volcanoes and mountains, from the sapphire gemstone came water and rivers, from the amethyst gemstone came marshes and mists, from the emerald gemstone came plants and fruits, and from the gold gemstone came dragons and magic itself.
Primitive dragons discovered these gems by digging underground. The contention for these gems caused the War of the Gems, which ended only through the intervention of King Magnus.
After the war they were assigned to Eidolon, dragon designated as king for the then nascent Upperworld. Eidolon had his advisors hide the Gems so that no one could ever find and use them, unleashing too much power and risking further conflict and cataclysms.
They are said to provide unimaginable powers to those who combine them. Some say they could grant a weapon of pure light, others think they are cursed and their power is darkness itself. Still others, who believe in the legend of the Draken, say they would allow someone to become the Draken itself.
Krag, after years of subjugation by the Upperworld, has decided that he wants all the gems for himself. His realm has needed them for far too long. Therefore, once he manages to defeat Eidolon, he sets up a plan to get them back. But having harbored the desire for revenge for so long seems to have driven him mad, and he is determined to gain the ultimate power of the Draken by collecting and shattering the crystals.
Creepy all-white eyes, powerful wings, robust skin covered in scales as black as darkness itself and as purple as the glow of an alien crystal. He is Krag, dragon-king of darkness.
Krag has reigned over the Underworld, the subterranean kingdom of Oniria, since the time of Magnus.
He is the only dragon that survived in his original form after the extinction and mutation of the ancient dragons of the Underworld into wyrms.
Like the dragons that turned into wyrms, he lost his sight and adapted to living in a dark place with very little magic. For this reason, he is unable to stand in the light of the Upperworld for more than a few minutes. However, he kept his wings and retained some of his powers, which allow him for example to open Dark Vortices, portals to the Upperworld or even to the human world, which his wyrm troops use to travel and to take enemies by surprise.
He seems to have always ruled with an iron fist, but he has always fought for his people, especially after the Extinction. In fact, he has always demanded more equality from Eidolon, king of the Upperworld, because of the harsh conditions he and his folk ended up living in. This shows that his heart is not as black as his scales, and the wyrms know it. Because of this, they worship him and blindly believe in his leadership.
Dragons are colorful creatures that live in the Upperworld. They breathe magic to live and are all equipped with wings to fly. Some of them live in the forest, some in the swamp, some live near rivers, some on top of volcanoes, and still others are said to live above the clouds in endless flight.
Nearly all of the dragons were taken prisoner by Krag during his assault, and were taken to the dungeons of the Underworld.
During the adventure, the Heroes manage to free them and are able to talk to a few in particular.
They meet Senex, an elderly dragon who is looking for his dragon children, Iris and Aster. They meet Iris and Aster themselves, allowing them to reunite with their father. And finally they meet Fortis, Vigor's brother, who is worried about his fate since Vigor has managed to escape capture.
An ancient deity of chaos. There are many legends around its origin, but according to the most accredited, this divine creature was in the middle of a war, and was the leader of the gods of chaos who tried to dominate the gods of order. To his misfortune, he was defeated, and as a form of divine punishment he was thrown into the farthest corner of the universe and was condemned to travel in the void, unable to move, for all eternity.
But his flight was not forever. In fact, fate would have it that his path crossed a small celestial body, and crashed like a meteor against this piece of wandering rock.
The Draken died on impact, and his body remained embedded in the small planet. In the crash, he wept five divine tears, which released him from all his pent-up emotions and ancestral magic. The tears penetrated deep into the ground and crystallized, becoming the Gems of Genesis.
The gems began to release all their magical essence, which shaped the small planet into colorful landscapes, covered it with vegetation and life. The creatures born of Draken's magic were similar to him in form. They had 4 legs, wings and were covered with hard scales: they were dragons.
They colonized the lands, calling the place: Oniria. The center of their civilization was a majestic tree, known as the Tree of Dreams.
The body of the Draken remained as a wreck, devoid of life and magic, and as the ages passed it was forgotten. His existence became legend and his body was never found again.But the dragons did not know that they had actually built their civilization around the dead shell of the Draken. In fact, time had covered its body with vegetation, making it resemble a millenary tree: it was the Tree of Dreams itself.
