"Just as the suppurating Wastes, we are indomitable, unforgiving, and unconquerable. We do not simply accept outside concepts without careful consideration. We certainly do not submit to domination. By anyone."
Hidden in the Quarantine Zone, laying claim to their own section of the virulent pools, caverns, and chambers, Clan Shinga Ai Vuna makes its home.
"There are a hundred different threats in here that would freeze your blood if you knew about them."
The clan is well aware of what they are, what they are responsible for, and what can happen if they relax their guard.

• My lore complies with site rules, but there are allusions to darker incidents and events, situations or conditions. This includes violence, death, and treachery. Dragons with potentially triggering content will have warnings at the top of their bios.

•My clan's denizens don't always adhere to what the site lists their size as, and their bios will indicate as such. (Eg: My clan's sentry/guardian is twice as large as his on-site stats indicate)

• Feel free to post responses, but you don't need to ping- I'm subscribed!

CAN I POST HERE? Please do! I would love to have input!

ARE YOU OPEN FOR LORE CONNECTIONS? Yes, please! My clan is always open for new allies, connections, trade partners- even enemies, if you so wish!

The clan's main territory is within one of many Quarantine Zones, with a swath of wastes close to the border shared with Shadow that are utilised as hunting grounds. The majority of the clan's personal space is underground in the virulent caves, pools and tunnels under the Quarantine Zone- where the Hibernal Den and its many chambers are located.

The edges of the territory are patrolled by Nathema, and Bengorro guards the entrance to the Hibernal Den. Both Gaolers have adapted well to their new surroundings- they are both adept at prowling through the wastes silently, their thick pelts unaffected by the virulent growths and jagged shards of bone.

Their stamina, perfect visual and olfactory senses, as well as perfect memories mean they can- and will- hunt intruders far from the clan's territory and well into a whole other elemental domain if their transgressions were great enough.

52.png The Hibernal Den is a twisting labyrinth of tunnels dug by the clan. Each of them are dotted with various chambers, each housing a different sect of the clan. They all meet in the center, in a large foyer of sorts, lined with personal comforts. The growths and roots shift with strange movement, and change the terrain, so as to leave nothing familiar to use as landmarks. Any attempts to navigate the tunnels as an outsider without a guide always ends up with the trespasser finding themselves at Bengorro's chamber- if they are lucky or skilled enough to get past him or Nathema in the first place.

The Chamber of Noctis: The main chamber of the Hibernal Den, and the first level a visitor may enter through the main entrance.
The Vault: The clan prison, existing at the deepest level possible. Home for saboteurs, traitors and mutineers.
Those Who Hunger: Those affected most by the endemic strain of the clan brought from the Wastes and enhanced by the cold. They are kept just above the Vault- for every prison needs monsters to guard its prisoners.
The Morgue: Located above the chamber of Those Who Hunger, this sublevel is home to the Death Council, and is where the dead are interred.
The Lab: The lab is actually set aside in its own dragon-made cave underground with ample ventilation and escape exits, as well as support structures- to ensure any explosions won't trap the scientists inside. In this cave, experiments, alchemy, and other questionable sciences occur.
The Hunting Grounds: This is not so much a chamber as it is the clan's claimed territory where game is hunted, flora is collected, and fish caught from festering pools. The clan is fiercely territorial of their hunting grounds, and only accept outsiders to hunt on them if they are allied with them.
The Athenaeum: The Library and Sanctum. This is where the scholars, sages, magi and Lorekeepers archive and convene over topics of intellectual pursuits. Beneath the ground, the clan found sunken ruins- possibly from the same society that created the ruins found in Shadow's territory. The clan renovated some of the ancient sunken buildings and repurposed them into a library.
The Commerce Guild: Located near the Vault- and out of reach of Those Who Hunger- the Guild also doubles as the Hoard, where the clan's tradesmen, scouts, smugglers and entrepreneurs gather to talk trade.
The Craftsman's Hall: A chamber that houses the supplies of the crafters of the clan. It is often full of light and sound as the craftsdragons rarely cease their work.
The Foxfire Lights: This sect of the clan tap into the ever present infection and its by-products. They use this energy to replenish the stores of magic that the clan uses in its everyday activities. They wander the Wastes, collecting magic for the clan, their brightly glowing wings and markings making them eerie spectres among the scattered bones.

Together, the two formed a tiny clan in a secluded, but ideal stretch of forest close to the Sea of a Thousand Currents. They were small, and focused on patrolling the borders, but were prosperous, until they were ousted from their rule. Instead of fighting the usurper, the two quietly went to serve the Shadowbinder- where they patiently learned, and changed to better serve the Shadows. [nextcol] [url=https://flightrising.com/main.php?p=lair&id=9939&tab=dragon&did=39734][img]https://www1.flightrising.com/rendern/avatars/398/39734.png[/img][/url] [/columns] [emoji=deer skull size=1] [columns] [url=https://flightrising.com/main.php?p=lair&id=9939&tab=dragon&did=303677][img]https://www1.flightrising.com/rendern/avatars/3037/303677.png[/img][/url] [nextcol][font=georgia][color=#545454][size=4] A single wildclaw named Schatten, pushed from the Tidelord's domain for her aggression, challenged the young pair for their territory and won, then attracted the attention of a lonely and intelligent ridgeback named Lauern, who was banished from the Stormcatcher's domain for her lack of proper work ethic- she was focused more on lore, stories, and quiet reflection. Together, the two of them expanded the territory, deeper into the Wispwillow Grove, and welcomed any who were clever enough to impress Lauern, or strong enough to match Schatten's ferocity- and a pair named Lou and Lux were just such contenders to be welcomed into the clan... but they brought treachery with them. [nextcol] [url=https://flightrising.com/main.php?p=lair&id=9939&tab=dragon&did=272288][img]https://www1.flightrising.com/rendern/avatars/2723/272288.png[/img][/url] [/columns] [emoji=deer skull size=1] [columns] [url=https://flightrising.com/main.php?p=lair&id=9939&tab=dragon&did=627214][img]https://www1.flightrising.com/rendern/avatars/6273/627214.png[/img][/url] [nextcol][font=georgia][color=#545454][size=4] Lux and Lou- both children of the Plaguebringer, brought a plague with them that slowly infected the clan, and Schatten soon felt compelled to move the clan to the Scarred Wastes- where Lou and Lux mutinied, and took control of the clan. They wasted no time demoting the former leaders to the lowest rank, treating them poorly- even going so far as to destroy one of their nests- it was only by sheer luck that one egg survived, and was sent to another clan for safety, securing a future alliance. Their paranoid grip had the clan isolated, and the slow decline threatened to decimate the clan- and caused unrest in the ranks.

They restored Schatten and Lauern to positions of respect- and ruthlessly killed all but one of Lux and Lou's last clutch- the last was sent to another clan. Under the Matriarchs, the clan began to live again, and thrive with purpose, moving ever closer to the Wyrmwound as their territory and numbers grew. [nextcol] [url=https://flightrising.com/main.php?p=lair&id=9939&tab=dragon&did=2928650][img]https://www1.flightrising.com/rendern/avatars/29287/2928650.png[/img][/url] [/columns] [emoji=deer skull size=1] [columns] [url=https://flightrising.com/main.php?p=lair&id=9939&tab=dragon&did=3537011][img]https://www1.flightrising.com/rendern/avatars/35371/3537011.png[/img][/url] [nextcol] [font=georgia][color=#545454][size=4]Thrawn's mate- and the healers who were necessary to the clan- began to show deadly mutations, so Thrawn tricked the Matriarchs to make the pilgrimage to the Sunbeam Ruins under the pretense of "claiming rightful ancestral territory as Imperials." Once there, Thrawn enlisted researchers and his fearless mercenaries to plumb the depths of the Hewn City for cures. The clan, however, was not pleased with the perceived vanity and selfish nature of the Matriarchs- especially when they began to dote on a particular male and gave him free reign to do as he liked, regardless of consequences. Once a cure- or a method to put a stop to further mutation- was found, the Matriarchs decided to make the trek back to the Wastes. They were met with a force of mercenaries who were done serving vain leaders who didn't do anything to boost the status of the clan.

RISE TO POWER

8095.png

Clan Shinga ai Vuna is a clan that for its size, is rich in history- of conquest, betrayal, liberation, adaptation, survival and love.

39733.png
Born in the dregs of the Shadowbinder's domain, a Guardian named Yennefer found her Charge- a lost Fae named Geralt. Together, the two formed a tiny clan in a secluded, but ideal stretch of forest close to the Sea of a Thousand Currents. They were small, and focused on patrolling the borders, but were prosperous, until they were ousted from their rule.

Instead of fighting the usurper, the two quietly went to serve the Shadowbinder- where they patiently learned, and changed to better serve the Shadows.

303677.png
A single wildclaw named Schatten, pushed from the Tidelord's domain for her aggression, challenged the young pair for their territory and won, then attracted the attention of a lonely and intelligent ridgeback named Lauern, who was banished from the Stormcatcher's domain for her lack of proper work ethic- she was focused more on lore, stories, and quiet reflection.

Together, the two of them expanded the territory, deeper into the Wispwillow Grove, and welcomed any who were clever enough to impress Lauern, or strong enough to match Schatten's ferocity- and a pair named Lou and Lux were just such contenders to be welcomed into the clan... but they brought treachery with them.

627214.png
Lux and Lou- both children of the Plaguebringer, brought a plague with them that slowly infected the clan, and Schatten soon felt compelled to move the clan to the Scarred Wastes- where Lou and Lux mutinied, and took control of the clan.

They wasted no time demoting the former leaders to the lowest rank, treating them poorly- even going so far as to destroy one of their nests- it was only by sheer luck that one egg survived, and was sent to another clan for safety, securing a future alliance. Their paranoid grip had the clan isolated, and the slow decline threatened to decimate the clan- and caused unrest in the ranks.
582268.png
2713529.png Two powerful Imperials Angelina and Thorne, rose to challenge the pair, using mercenaries that their advisor, Mitth'raw'nuruodo hired, and took control of the clan. They restored Schatten and Lauern to positions of respect- and ruthlessly killed all but one of Lux and Lou's last clutch- the last was sent to another clan.

Under the Matriarchs, the clan began to live again, and thrive with purpose, moving ever closer to the Wyrmwound as their territory and numbers grew.
2928650.png
3537011.png Thrawn's mate- and the healers who were necessary to the clan- began to show deadly mutations, so Thrawn tricked the Matriarchs to make the pilgrimage to the Sunbeam Ruins under the pretense of "claiming rightful ancestral territory as Imperials."

Once there, Thrawn enlisted researchers and his fearless mercenaries to plumb the depths of the Hewn City for cures. The clan, however, was not pleased with the perceived vanity and selfish nature of the Matriarchs- especially when they began to dote on a particular male and gave him free reign to do as he liked, regardless of consequences.

Once a cure- or a method to put a stop to further mutation- was found, the Matriarchs decided to make the trek back to the Wastes. They were met with a force of mercenaries who were done serving vain leaders who didn't do anything to boost the status of the clan. They were loyal to Thrawn, who had commanded them to challenge the Matriarchs to stand down.

Angelina and Thorne, stepped down gracefully, knowing their reign was over, and were allowed to keep a position of respect.

Eventually, the endemic virus that infected and coexisted with each dragon in the clan began to cause the core temperatures in each denizen of the Wastes to rise drastically, and even the hardiest of their warriors were succumbing to heat stroke, their bodies baking their own organs.

The main healer, Maidievh, for all her skill, could not keep them alive, and didn't know what to do. All the while, an urgent instinct was pressing them, especially the Warlord, to go South, and seek refuge in the cold wintry wastes of the Icewarden- and the main council decided unanimously it was the best decision for the safety of all.

A handful of the clan perished, some burned out, but those that made it to the snows of the South found almost immediate relief, and their hot blood allowed them to thrive in a new wasteland of white.

THE EMERGENCE

............................. 44677144.png 16444.png 58371462.png
....

Things were changing in Sornieth. The nature of dragons was changing, manifesting in new appearances, new genetics, even the very eyes of the latest offspring was different, even disturbing.

Even those who had left to serve the Eleven were returning, and such a pair was the Progenitors of the clan. Thrawn welcomed them back without qualm, and the two took up positions in the main council, settling into clan life with their new abilities- and new forms.

Thrawn only saw it as opportunity. The land was changing, and his clan, used to change, to upheaval, calamity, strife and trials, would survive, would thrive, would go on.

Even when the Gaolers emerged, Thrawn only saw opportunity. He directly approached an ancient Overseer, and informed him of the events happening in Sornieth, explaining why things- and most dragons- seemed Shade-Touched. He told the ancient warden of how his clan kept order, kept tidy boundaries, and protected their territory from unnecessary conflict and desecration.

All of this, he said through Thorne. The Gaoler respected the Imperial for her age, size and breed alone as a fellow "Eldest and First" of another Deity, but also recognised the blessing of the Icewarden as one born of his realm by the chilly white of her eyes and resistance to his manacles of frost.

Thrawn revealed himself as Warlord once the Gaoler was placated, and offered the ancient warden a subset of territory in the mountain tunnels that dug deep into the icy cliffsides of the glacier, as well as free reign to control the Emperor he had subdued within the clan's Vaults. He would allow him free movement, and assist him "To the best of his ability" and "Within his own moral spectrum" in his charge as a Gaoler. In return, he asked the denizens of his clan be left alone, save for the Emperor, as he knew the three headed dragon was too dangerous to be left unguarded.

The old Gaoler agreed, and soon, the clan had more Gaolers coming to ally themselves within their ranks- but in a separate, detached sort of way.

The peace within the frozen wilds was not to last- as the Banescales emerged, and the violent intrusion of the Flamecaller's children from the north increased, shrinking the Southern Icefields, more dragons were displaced from the melting floes, coming inland. More clans- dragon and Beastclan alike- were intruding too close to the territory of the clan, and threatened their privacy.
