The home of the halflings, Planet Apocalia resembled a post-apocalyptic world until a group of demons and humans came to prove that the world is hospitable. Many had died due to disease, war an related things, and only two major families remain; The Barators (Darkstorm's family) and the Tanuki (Whitelight's family). Apocalia is the third planet of the solar system of Varanol.
Humans have never been seen on Apocalia only cast out demons and dragons which were the only known inhabitants of the planet, creating the first few breeds known as Dracnai, Canai and Felorai. Humans first appeared by complete accident when a couple of transport ships from the early Victorian era on Earth, the people had no Idea how to work the land and when Apocalia's winter came the colonists were struggling to survive and they would have parashed if it weren't for the great Dragon named Koshaka Torev Barator who came and taught the fearful humans how to work the land and how to survive.
Raising children was another difficult feat those who were born died within the first few days due to Osh'Raku attacks on the settlement and incompatibility with the local inhabitants until Koshaka's son Teraka Kova Barator suggested Magical Insemination which worked creating newer breeds including the rare Rynoc.
Continents and CountriesEdit
Apocalia has one super contient similar to Pangaea but the continent was divided to several different pockets of tribal nomads, when humans first appeared these Waring tribes halted there assault on each other to see what was going on. Over the years these tribes began to unite into five different cities which later became known as The Five Tribes.
- City of Virtue
- City of Harmony
- City Serenity
- City of Necromancy
- City of Unity
The center of the Five tribes is the City of Unity which is commonly known as the Capital in which the Drak'Vorkata's palace resides. They other four cities are ruled by eitehr lesser Vorkata's or Lesser Viruni's.
The people of Apocalia, or Apocalians, are mainly all halflings. Since the earliest known record Apocalia has never seen a pure breed human or demon in over several centuries until the arrival of Mi-Actu-Sin (Darkstorm's mother). Many of the species of halfling on Apocalia are categorized like this:
- Caloarai (Canai and Felorai Hybrids)
- Jen'tchu (half Raptorans)
- Cali'tor (half Xenomorphs)
- Canai or "wolflings" and related, canine-like subspecies
- Insara (Insectoid halflings)
- Jishik (Mobian halfings)
- Hal'cova (Equestrian halflings)
- Osh'Raklin (A hybrid of the Osh'Raku)
- Tago'Rayu (Water bound species closely related to sharks)
- Vago'Rayu (Can either be in water or on land, related to the sharks)
Legend of the RynocsEdit
Originally, the term "Rynoc" was an insult toward halflings with spikes on their tail(s), but later on in the years the insult had became an official species name towards the certain halflings. The only known Rynocs on Apocalia are Darkstorm the halfbreed and his carrier daughter, Terra, and a few notable others. Rynoc births are incredibly rare, and as well as meeting the species itself.
Apocalia's widlife is varied, with animals ranging ftom prehistory to modern day. The two most common animals are sabre cats and Osh'raku.
Sabre Cat Edit
When one looks at a sabre cat they commonly mistake it for Smilodon, due to their size and hunting tactics. The key differences are that their fur color and patterns are different; sabre cat fur is either white with a black highlight/design or cream with brown highlights/design. Another key difference between Smilodon ans wabre cats is their sabre teeth. In Smilodon's case, their iconic "sabre" fangs are out all the time, while sabre cat's are retractable to reduce the danger of damaging them. Sabre cat territory varies on the species; some like to be in dense forests to help give them more hiding places for ambush, while others prefer the plains where its warmer and less confined giving more mobility to chase down fast moving prey animl's unlike their neighbor Smilodon.
Culture and Cultural PracticesEdit
The Cult of the Shark Edit
This culture had started long before the Barator family took power, when the first humans appeared on Apocalia some cultures were transferred but the Cult of the shark was created when several Human water craft were sunk near the shallows of Apocalia's continent, instead of killing the struggling humans a group of sharks helped them to shore and then returned to the deeps to hunt. The Humans that were saved believed the large fish to be gods and, after being altered over a long line of magical insemination, became water bound to join their gods becoming apex predators.
Apocalia is ruled by a king also known as Drak'Vorkata in a Constitutional Monoarchy, but the only family that rules all of Apocalia were the Royal Storms or the Barator Family. Most of the families' kings were kindhearted, until the throne was taken over by the tyrant Snowstorm Barator. Years later, he was overthrown by one of his youngest sons; a Rynoc named Darkstorm-Actu-Sin Veshaka Barator. After many years of repairing the hopes of the people, Apocalia is back to her full strength. But there is still a lot of harsh laws still in place that Darkstorm is trying to remove. During judgments, the accused is put on trial and if the accused is innocent then he would be able to stay out of the coliseum. But if the accused is guilty he/she must fight to survive in the Arena.
Apocalia's resources are mainly a rich Gold, Silver and Bronze deposit that never seams to end. The currency of Apoclia goes like this;
- Gold coins are called Rooca's they are the most valuable
- Silver coins are called Varcaa's they aren't as valuable as Rooca's but are the nickles of Apocalia
- Bronze slivers are Vashna's, they are the pennies of Apocalia
Apocalia is known to the Most wealthiest planet and the highest economic stance.
