Main NPCs[edit | edit source]
|The Lupus’ great chief who regards protecting the Lupus’ remaining will and the sanctuary that is Brhan forest as his mission.
As he is always willing to listen to others’ stories, he is often surrounded by Lupus both young and old. During his youth, Chinuwa was a fiery warrior, but after he became the chief at a young age, he gradually mellowed. Because of their experiences with the fierce chief when he was younger, the Lupus, who remember Chinuwa in his youth, still cannot treat him affectionately and remain at a safe distance.
|A part of his own spirit was left by the prophet Urgen Tenza so that the whole Lupus race would not forget about their duty to guard the seal of the Devil Dragon Ventus and to defend the providence of the world.
Originally it was called the Spirit of Urgen Tenza, but after many years it is now just called Urgen Tenza. Urgen Tenza is located in the guardian deity’s sanctuary and teaches those who seek him.
Lore[edit | edit source]
The Lupus, as creations of the Daimon Gods, are beings who have existed in this world since mythical times. As with other old beings, they possess a strange human-elf-wolf hybrid appearance.
As needed, the Lupus can transform completely into wolves, an ability that ignores the laws of the material world.
Within the Lupus’ blood exists a power that originated from the chaos of the beginning of the world. Therefore, they sometimes lose rationality and become the manifestation of violent destruction and slaughter.
That being said, they are usually a peaceful race that listens to the spirit’s words and respects all life forms. There are not many Lupus and rarely do they venture outside of Brhan forest. They do not prefer written records, and for the most part, orally transmit history through songs.
According to their oral tradition, they were the most outstanding group of warriors in the Daimon Gods’ army, along with their creator Baraka. However, when Baraka left the world after being defeated in the war with the dragons, the Lupus were faced with great hardship.
Then, under the guidance of the Lupus’ great prophet Urgen Tenza, some took refuge in Brhan forest’s sanctuary. Urgen Tenza pleaded with Physis to forgive the Lupus, and, as a result, Physis relented. Hence, the Lupus were narrowly able to maintain their civilization.
For thousands of years, the Lupus lived in near seclusion in Brhan forest. It was not easy for the Lupus to live in the material world dominated by Physis and providence since they were warriors born out of chaos.
For survival, the Lupus listened to the teachings of the spirit as delivered by Urgen Tenza, and a unique tradition where nature was respected and held in high regard developed.
Currently, the Lupus are living peacefully and complying with providence. Although they are hunters, they refrain from killing needlessly.
However, their warrior society traditions of the past still exist. For example, they compete based on skill to decide on their chief; they still consider bravery, honor, and a strong physique as virtues; and they continue to value strict discipline and complete obedience.
The Lupus, who had not been seen by other races for a long time, came to the forefront of history during the Holy War of the Dark Ages. At the time, Urudata’s army, which was at war with both the humans and elves, was invading Brhan forest. There the army clashed with Lupus warriors.
The Altoquen King Harman, who witnessed a small number of Lupus unilaterally massacring uncivilized races, suggested an alliance to Bold Batar, a Lupus leader and warrior. And so, as a means of protecting the Brhan forest sanctuary from invasions by uncivilized races, the Lupus’ great warrior participated in Hiera – Basillia and contributed greatly to the Habichts victory in the Holy War.
After the Holy War ended, the great warrior Bold Batar accepted the title of Habichts Margrave to secure Lupus territory from the ever-growing Habichts Empire. As before, the Lupus are disinterested in happenings outside of Brhan Forest, but will always run to the fiercest battlefield if it is called for by the Hiera – Basillia vow.
