Asentari: a personal history Empty Asentari: a personal history

Asentari are by far the youngest race in Asmir Ka'Lesa, only revealing themselves to the other races near the end of the second age. Before the Asentari lived in Edia, the dragons of the first great war lived there. They thrived for a while, however some of their eggs failed to hatch. Dragons reproduced slowly, and if this kept up they were facing extinction. When humans moved into lower edia, it was during a time of chaos. Heanta roamed the lands in search of slaves, and even their own kind would happily snatch them away to drag up north. The settlements that cropped up there were under constant threat of attack. The dragons watched, but none intervened. Until a massive war party of humans and heanta attacked. A dragon by the name of Abraxos had seen something in the humans, a resiliance and adaptability that would benefit his kind, and decided to intervene. He descened on the war party and decimated it, leaving the remnants to flee. The humans showered him with gifts and praise.

Overtime more dragons began to protect the humans, but the majority did not see the benefit. However more and more of their eggs were failing to hatch, and some that did, died withing a few weeks. soon, no more young would hatch, and even with their lifespan, they would be in dire trouble. But they began to see what abraxos had seen in the humans. A means to keep their bloodlines flowing. They made an agreement with the humans in lower Edia. The dragons would allow humans to live on upper Edia, under thier protection and in exchange they would mix their blood using draconic magic. This ritual was known as the Melding, and it created the species known as asentari, albiet not instantly. The effects took a few generations to fully manifest, but the dragon's efforts paid off in the end.

600 years after the formation of this agreement, when no more dragon young were being produced, the dragons finally left Edia in the hands of their prodgeny race and flew to new lands in hopes of finding a cure. Not all dragons left Ka'lesa however. The following years, Asentari lived in general peace, their existance unknown by people outside of Edia. However the finally revealed themselves when a raiding party of heanta attacked the human villages below. Feeling a strong connection to the humans below, the Asentari went to their defense and drove the heanta off. News spread from that heanta raiding party until finally the world was aware of what lurked in Edia. The Asentari made it very clear very quickly that they were not interested in the world outside Edia, and that the lands below the floating islands belonged to them, and attacks on the humans living there would be met with war.
