Story Time Picture

Vestri then allowed the two to temporarily stay at her house with her son until Scratt could find his own home. That night, she informed them on the culture and backstory behind their people.
A long time ago, a monstrous wolf named Fenir was released from a fiery land named Muspel and ravaged the land. He ate entire landscapes, drank the oceans, and even darkened the day. Most notable of his deeds was bringing one of Golgi's moons crashing into the earth, which would eventually become the base for the Tree of Life and Second Core. Very few survived, but a future Undercorer named Tyre forged three binding straps to hold Fenir in place, Two of magma forged chains and another magically woven ribbon for his collar. Tyre tricked the nasty beast into testing it's strength with this "mere ribbon". Bold, but not stupid, Fenir agreed, but only if Tyre put his hand in his mouth while he did so. Tyre obviously lost his forging hand, but Fenir was forever trapped in the frozen wasteland of Miflh, bound by these three straps.
The few survivors saw the land in front of them, and were divided into two groups according to their choice of action. One group sought to conquer whatever was left in Fenir's wake, and exploit it. The others, led by Tyre, speculated that their previous greed for power and control is what called forth the beast in the first place, and wanted to start a new life far away from their mistakes. They traveled to the second core, and discovered that a whole world was beneath them that had escaped Fenir's rage. These people became the Undercorers. Over many years of reduced gravity thanks to the Second Core, they became lighter, fairer, but not weaker thanks to Tyre's forward planning.
Scratt felt he had heard this story before... from his Mother and Father. Scratt then thought that since dragons have no determinate lifespan, they might have survived this turn of events (ironically thanks to their feuding families) by turning into dragons. Scratt himself wondered by there no no others where he lived, human or dragon...
