A wandering group of Imperial dragons, hailing originally from the Hewn City (but it seemed as if many dragons traveled from elsewhere before that even) arrived at the clan one day. These peculiar and perhaps occult dragons approached Clan Aquila draped in fine cloth and laden with birdskulls of various colors, speaking of prophecies and legends of a god unknown to any of the clans's residents. They spoke of a grand god of raven feathers and sun-bleached bone, unknown to anyone else. A jade-green Imperial, towering over them all, singled out a young Coatl male, claiming that they had been looking for the boy for a long time. They spoke of grand tales revolving around the eagle-born, forged in fire but bathed in light. They claimed that their purpose was here- they had traveled from the Sunbeam Ruins and carried the light for a long time just to fulfill the prophecies of the eagle-born. How could Aquila refuse? They were travelers like any other. They had no right to deny the dragons a home. And so they didn't, and the wayward crowd joined their own. As if on cue, when the strange Imperials took up residence with Aquila the surrounding Beastclans attacked in a frenzy... The clan was almost constantly under siege from everything. The Beastclans suddenly seemed determined to rid the dragons of the area, even if they had never caused an issue there before. The clan quickly formed a defense unit- Mythrille and Corvalon at the head, with Mido as the second-in-command and Aleros working to protect his section of the clan. Corvalon formed a group of other Tundras to defend the clan, and led those, while Mythrille protected the rest of the population.

She was found in the middle of the continent-wide celebration for the Arcane flight.

Rigel was certainly imaginative, dreaming of stars and lands far away that not even Corvalon had yet seen. Many of the Imperials disregarded her claims, but plenty of the rest of the population humored her yarns and at least pretended to believe her claims of visions from the stars above. They called her a true Arcane flighter, simply misplaced in the Labyrinth.

She valiantly argued that she saw them happen before they did, and while next to none believed her, her "visions" began to come true.

Slowly, the clan began to accept Rigel as a godsend, a predictor of events for the better. As strange as her abilities seemed, they certainly allowed the clan to defend themselves much better against the frenzied Beastclans that never ceased their attacks.
