Your pardon? … ? …
Arriving in the Green Living Lands of the Zilveren River, Shaya welcomed the clean air and the wholesome sights. She rejoyced to be away from the storms of the Bragbell Mountinas and the heavy fetid air of the Shimanka Swamps.
Here she met Lin -- also a fugitive from the Karlial region who came with her parents, escaping the war.
Together they roamed the forbidden meadows. One day they stumbled upon Slalssaari an young Kas'ai Serpent, enjoying the the cool waters of the pond after having shed her skin. Slalssaari encouraged them to come closer: To feel her shiny scales as if she were showing off a new dress to her friends. Her vibrant color was radient and beautiful. Shaya and Lin could not comprehend how anyone could inflict torture and pain upon such a beautiful, kind and majestic creature. Surely the supersitious fears were unfounded.
