Return of the Hydra: prologue
People tell the Dinagul were created from magical stones, long before Tessarane even existed. The two Archmages Vrynn and Lyvinn awakened their powers and gave each of them a vast territory in the Borderlands and a great number of human followers. In exchange, they would protect their followers and keep Demonic invasions at bay. Dinagul drew strength from the beliefs of their mortal followers and as they grew in strength, most of them started a true reign of terror, for which emotion was easier to provoke and feed upon than fear? Was it the human energies of their followers that corrupted them, was it the sheer power they wielded or were the Dinagul already rotten to the core before the pact with mankind was made? These are questions for the philosophers and sages. The Archmages attacked the Dinagul one by one, putting most of them in a kind of dormant state. Ever since, the Dinagul try to awake by drawing enough energy from their population.
