Long ago,
there were two great dragons...

Hylcinth, the white dragon of light, ruler of the day and goddess of honor, giver of magic and mother of the terrestrial planets...

Helgrinle’das, the black dragon of the night, god of justice and the hunt, watchman and protector of the universe...

Though nature ruled that they should live in opposition, their harmonious balance led the two to eventually fall in love.

Together they built Jo'Arca, and Hylcinth wept joyously, filling its expanses with magic and life, creatures and spirits, plants and minerals. Finally, she called down some of the stars themselves to live as mortals, giving birth to the Stardragons.
