The Stormcrows, despite the name, are actually a species of raven known to be harbingers of war and dark times...to the superstitious. They're the exact opposite in reality. They're most famous for haunting battlefields but not to pick at the dead. Instead, the Stormcrows defend the wounded from the inevitable vultures and buzzards. They're either referred to by soldiers as angels of death or mercy, depending on their personal perceptions. The name "Stormcrow" is not the name the Weaver had given the transfigured species when He created them from mundane corvids. It's unknown when they were first called by that name but it is known that it wa
All World's history is currently divided into four eras of time; Century Zero and the three Epochs. The planet itself also underwent three name changes in that time. Each name change came about because of a Shift, an event that marked the end of an era and the beginning of another. A side note about Century Zero is the contention between various historians (including the Masters) on whether to consider it a part of the First Epoch or not. The Masters, having been around since the Beginning, consider Century Zero its own era of time with the First Epoch beginning after the Descent. This paper will be written with that in mind. This will give s

Government: None; subjects of Quetzalcoatl
Offshoots: Is an offshoot of the Human Empire
The Islanders are the human descendants of a large animal conservation group from a few centuries back. The group's goal was to conserve various animal groups, like the Saurians. The conservation group came about because of the 500-year-long Faction Wars. The Empire was splintering into two groups: the Neo-Nomadics and the Regional Independents. Before the Faction Wars, resources weren't as tight because of the various trades and treaties between the Empire and the Animal Nations. However, when the Empire started to f
The battle was over. It had been a wild ride. After Thanos was Snapped out of existence by Tony Stark, who died as a result, Steve Rogers had taken the Infinity Stones back to their proper places in time. He didn't return when he should have, which Bucky Barnes had known was going to happen. He and Sam Wilson then found Steve as an old man sitting nearby. Steve bequeathed his shield and mantle as Captain America to Sam. Bucky was fine with that. He knew that everything he had done as the Winter Soldier meant he wasn't worthy of either the shield or the mantle.
At the moment, Bucky was lying under a tree on Stark's property. He was alone. Eve
It had been a long battle. Phoenix was in Wakanda when Thanos came. While she had remained undetected and mostly out of the fighting, she still found herself accosted by his Outriders. The mindless way they attacked meant that her husband's spell had been kicked into overdrive. The downside was that even though it acted autonomously, it still drew on her inherent energy. By the time the battle was over, she was running on fumes. Exhausted, Phoenix made her way to where she had last seen Bucky. When she got there, a sudden shift in the wind caused her heart rate to spike. She picked up whatever speed she could and arrived just in time to witne
Awareness slowly came to Bucky Barnes. His head was pounding a little but as he came back to awareness, it started to die down. The memories came back. He remembered going to Siberia with Steve to stop Helmut Zemo from activating the other Winter Soldiers. He remembered finding them dead in their sleep. Then Iron Man showed up. Tony Stark. The son of Howard Stark. Zemo revealed the truth and all Bucky could feel was immeasurable sorrow and fear. Then the fighting started. Steve tried to buy Bucky time to escape but Stark had kept him from that. So the two old friends tag-teamed him and beat him down. The fight cost Bucky his bionic arm but St
A metal-armed man was wandering a forest. It had been several months since things went down in Washinton D.C. SHIELD had fallen, taking HYDRA with it. It was all thanks to the man on the bridge. His mission. His...friend. Since then, the former Winter Soldier had taken to walking the earth. After things had gone down, he had been left adrift. The number of people giving him orders was down to zero. He had snuck into the Smithsonian, trying to figure out the confusing mess Captain America had left him with. He had gone there because they had a Captain America exhibit and something told him that he would also be there in it. He had, against his
The phrase was complete and the man with a metal arm was stone-faced, awaiting his orders. "Good morning, Soldier. We have a mission for you." said his handler in Russian. "Ready to comply." the Winter Soldier replied.
Phoenix tore through the forest, breath coming in short bursts. She didn't know what was chasing her but the dark intent was palpable. Her Road had taken her back to the world she had left some time ago. It was the same, yet different, as if she h
James Buchanan Barnes lay in the snow on his back, wondering how he managed to survive a fall from such a height. The snow was drifting down around him as he stared up at the sky through half-closed eyes. His left arm was reduced to half his bicep. The rest of it was lying close by. He had hit a hunk of rock jutting out from the mountain on the way down. His blood stained the snow where his stump lay. The combination of extreme cold and snow was the thing keeping him from bleeding out. His breathing was shallow. He was pretty sure he had some internal injuries. He felt afraid of dying out here alone. Steve was long gone now, no doubt believin
Leviathans are the largest ocean creatures with only blue whales being a match for them. They are often called sea dragons because of their physical appearances but they are their own species as opposed to a subset of draconian. They're magical creatures capable of humanshifting but haven't displayed much in the way of other spells. Their history is one of tragedy and near-extinction. Currently, they're thought to be solitary animals with just a pair-bond claiming territory but there have been stories from fishermen who claim to have sighted pods of the animals. If those claims are true, the pods likely consist of juveniles that were old enou
