Ok in this RP there is one main threat to the villages. The Revenge or Shadow riders. Back at the beginning of the village of Vanahoon, hundreds of years ago there was a young man with an amulet. He started the village and was the leader. As the village grew the villagers discovered that the amulets gave them special abilities. They began to have their babies and children touch the amulets to receive these powers at an earlier age. This also resulted in accelerated growth of the children. This worked fine for awhile..but soon genetic and psychological side effects began to appear. Some villagers began to become sterile, others got a uncureable genetic disease. Others were not affected physically but began to become unstable. The villagers split. One faction continued to use the amulets, the other faction abandoned the amulets and turned instead to dragons for their power.
The village of Vanahoon survived for a few more generations but then died out as genetic disease killed them off. The unstable members left the village and formed their own clan. The Shadow Riders.
When the villagers split so did the Shadow Riders. Half of them stayed around to try and steal the amulets and the knowledge of powers that the amulets could produce it combined. This knowledge is stored in a secret library in the main library. It was discovered a few months after this new wave of villagers got there (i.e Jarlon, Rhea, Mika)
The other half of the shadow riders followed the group of villagers that got their power from dragons. They corrupted some dragons and created the shadow dragons. When Troy (the last great dragon master) died. The shadow dragons gave up on that angle and are now on their way back to join their brother clan the Shadow Riders.
The Shadow Rider's leader is in Spain. He leads the entire network of shadow riders from there.
When Mika first came to the Old World from America she was forcefully recruited to his spy network and sent to find Jarlon, and two other of a network of spies and assassins that has taken up the challenge of fighting the Shadow forces. She fell in love with the man she was supposed to betray. The Shadow riders had been tracking her and Jarlon, they killed him the night after Jason was conceived. Jarlon killed the task force assigned to follow Mika but the leader sent many more. They have all been killed when they came close to the villages but they are relentless.
Thanks to Arya it has been revealed that Saron is now the new 'dragon master' he has been chosen to be Samba's (a legendary dragon) rider. This has obviously added a new dimension of defense to Vanahoon (Cahoon and Vandecar combined).
I think this is most of the history with the Shadows, does anyone have anything to add?
