Not much is known about how the mystical creatures or beings came. However, it is known they came before man, as they existed peacefully when primitive man foraged in tribes. They taught man the secrets of bread, clay, and fire. Sadly, man became blind to them over time, and interaction between mortals and these creatures became rare. Then mankind began to multiply, and with that came an explosion in technology, and consequently these beings lost many of their ancient homes. Even though mankind had no malice towards these creatures, they faded away into colorful caricatures inhabiting myths and fables. There are still some places on Earth where their kind continue to thrive in the wild. Sadly many believe a day will come when the only safe place left for these creatures will be the preserves.
