Once upon a time, there was a Planet, all the way at the ends of the galaxy. A Planet called Cantua, on this planet lived two tribes, not any regular tribes, but a tribe of Apes, that went by the name of Los Gobernantes, or the Gobs, and a tribe called The Kings, the Kings weren’t like the Gobs though, they were of a whole different species, something like a cross-breed between a Lizard, and a Dinosaur, what some would consider...a Dragon!
On this planet the two tribes lived on two seperate sides, The Gobs controlled the North side of Cantua, while the Kings controlled the South side. The West side of Cantua was where the “Holy Spirits”, a group of cloaked creatures whom over-see Cantua, and make sure no problems ever arise. And the East side of Cantua, is the Forbidden land, where NOBODY, the Gobs, Kings, nor the Holy Spirits are ever allowed to enter.
Long ago, the Gobs, and the Kings, were once close companions. They lived on Cantua in peace, they shared the North, and the South side. At one point they even shared the same government, as well as shared celebrations. As time went on though, everything became different. It all started at the “Beginning’s Parade”, an annual celebration where everyone gets together and watches the Moon, pass the Sun, causing a total eclipse.
That night, as usual the Gobs and the Kings were together in the center of Cantua, known as the “Meet-Up” where there is a large hill allowing everyone to see the eclipse. As everyone was arriving, there seemed to be a lot of tension between the Gobs, and the Kings. Something just didn’t seem right, and it was obvious, usually the hill was filled with Gobs and Kings together, but this night, both groups stood on two seperate sides of the hill. The Gobs on the north, and the Kings on the south. As the night went on, neither tribes spoke to each other, they stayed on their sides and watched the marvelous phenomenon. As everything became pitch-black, a scream rang out. Not just any scream, the scream of a female in sharp pain! Once the scream rang out, everything just became a mess. Everything and everyone seemed to be going every which way. A few moments later, when the eclipse had ended when the everything was seen again. There were numerous bodies all across the ground. Everyone began to scream, and dispurse, running wild and going everywhere! Many didn’t even stick around to see what had actually happened, they ended up disappearing in their territories...
The next day, the Gobs, and the Kings held a meeting. Both leaders of the groups arrived at the hill where the incident had occured just a day ago. At the meeting is where they both reached the conclusion that both sides should just keep to their sides of Cantua. They also decided that the “Meet-Up” was now off limits for both tribes.
Now, on with the story. It was a regular Tuesday on Cantua, and as usual, Lenny, leader of the Kings went on his annual visit to the Holy Spirits to receive his usual spiritual guidance. As usual he was gone for about an hour. When he returned like usual he went to go check on his son, the prince of the Kings, Prince Iman. As he went to go check on him, he realized something strange on the floor, something that resembled the foot print of an ape. Once he saw the print he immediately ran into his only sons room, and there in the overssized crib that his son constantly stayed in, laid absolutely NOTHING. He suddenly spread his wings, and let out a dreadful howl! As he howled, a good amount of fellow Kings showed up in his sons room, and saw exactly what he saw when he had first entered the room. Without any hesitation or question he told them all that they were going right to the Gobs. Without a second to waste the Kings were already in the air, close to a thousand deep painting the sky a darkish red color, and filling it with horrible screatches!
Before the Kings could even reach the north of Cantua the Gobs were already out of their homes, and were all standing out in the streets trying to see what all the commotion was about. As the Kings finally reached the home of Krill, the leader of the Gobs. There were at least 100 Gobs waiting alongside him. He greeted Lenny with an absolute look of disgust, and seemed to not even acknowledge the rest of the Kings. He quickly got to the point asking “What are you here for!?” Lenny quickly snapped back saying “I know one of you filthy monkeys took my son!” When hearing this Krill began to chuckle a little and then looked around. After about another minute of chuckling, he then replied stating that he nor any of the Gobs haven’t stepped foot on the South side since the “altercation”. Lenny with a puzzled look snapped back again asking “If not you, and your monks, then who!? I found one of your dirty little monkey prints on my sons floor”. As his eyes opened much wider Krill asked “Were the footprints some what bloody?” Without even taking a breath Lenny nodded his head. With a large intake of breath Krill, without blinking began to speak. “Two days ago, one of my Gobs was attacked while heading towards the “Holy Spirits” territory. They both stare at each other. Fear overcame them so much that words weren’t able to speak from their lips. When the realization of the matter hit them, Lenny then said” We need to find out what this thing is and where it came from!” Krill in agreement said “Yes! But where are we to start, what are we to do?” Both took some time to think about what to do. “We must trace its tracks! That’s the only way we’ll be able to find the source of it.”
This journey is going to be a long and dangerous one, but it is one the Lenny and Krill will and must take to find out what it is this monstrous being is...
