Long ago when the world was young, all races lived among the land in tribes and small villages. There was very little war during this time, most of the villages were busy maintaining their way of life to care about wars, but there were some over land ownership. While there were many villages and people living within the forests and off the land, there was a larger predator. Dragons. The dragons roamed the land from above and sometimes below. The land was theirs and they did with it as they pleased. The dragons were here long before anything else. Many villages, people and the like were killed by dragons. It was very common to find people who had many past villages because they had to keep moving due to dragon attacks. It was seen as a stupid idea to build a large fortress or any form of a larger structure because it would attract attention.
The elder dragon, Jorig, was a monster of a dragon. Most say he’s almost half the size of the continent himself, and he very much disliked civilization built on his land, so he destroyed everything he could. This was his land. As per normal, he destroyed yet another village, but what he wasn’t expecting was the lone survivor of this destroyed village to hunt him.
Lucian, was a rather young man and he had been out on a hunting trip for his village. When he returned he came back to the ashes of his village. Angered by the dragon taking away his home and family, he vowed to take down the creature. It is said that the anger and bitterness in Lucian’s heart called deep into the darkness to a rather strong demon, who offered him a deal. They would give him unlimited power, however, when his task was finished, he would give the demon his life. It was a simple request to Lucian, so he immediately accepted. With the newfound power, Lucian began his journey as the first dragon hunter.
Many years passed before Lucian had managed to catch Jorig not only on the ground, but also alone. A battle ensued between dragon and dragon hunter causing much of the surrounding land to be scorched. The battle was seen by no one, but the legend says that Jorig killed Lucian’s contracted demon and was about to kill Lucian, when the demon decided to cast one last spell, binding Jorig and Lucian together. Smug with this newfound situation, Lucian told Jorig that he could kill himself and there would be no more to his life. The elder dragon didn’t want to die so early and wasn’t sure how to break the bond. Jorig was both angry and amazed he had been beat, though, he was curious what drove this man to do so much more than anyone else. Every other creature just screamed and ran away. From this point on Lucian and Jorig were contracted and there was nothing either could do about it, so they had no choice but to get along. Thus causing Lucian to become the first dragon knight.
