The Founding of the Republic
After the fall of the mighty Vulcan Empire, the world stood silent, as the Empire was the most stable clan of all. The Vulcans used to believe that their Empire will never fall, but alas, barbarian incursions and the citizens themselves, through dissent, contributed to the downfall of the seemingly invincible clan.
Vincent, the Imperium Emperor, exiled himself to a remote farmland in the outskirts of the Empire, as the Vulcans destroyed their own Empire at the capital. Meanwhile, three brave and loyal citizens planned a way to create a new Empire. The Big Three, which was composed of TrainerChris, Marshal Extroph, and Khybon, gathered a number of loyal Vulcans and found Vincent, then they all persuaded him to leave mainland Vulcan and create another civilization.
And so, after about 80,000 miles of seafaring, Vincent and his crew landed in a remote, Western part of the continent. The crew quickly set out to make their living quarters, their farms, and other essential institutions….but alas, they just could not survive in the harsh surroundings of the untamed land. The next day however, the crew awoke, and behold! A great number of tribesmen were surrounding them. All of them quickly drew their muskets and stood in defense of the Emperor, prepared for battle. The Emperor himself drew his Iron Sword of Vulcan. But to their surprise, the multitude of the warriors bowed to them.
An old man, now known as the principal priest of the Panthera clan, came to them and, to the four’s surprise, spoke to them in the Vulcan tongue. The priest told them that the land they were in was called Animus, and that it had the most fertile soil, the best-tasting water, and the thickest forests in the world. He went on to tell them that the land was ruled by three clans, called Panthera, Reptilia and Canis. Finally, he told them that all the cities had a common prophecy: that men with strange clothes will come to Animus, wearing orange, green, blue, and red, and that those men must become the rulers of Animus. The man in the orange will rule the skillful Panthera clan, the man in the green will rule the resilient Reptilia clan, and the man with the blue will rule the loyal Canis Clan. The man in the red, the priest said, was the physical manifestation of the Great Spirit, and that it was the man in the red who will act as a symbol of unity among the clans. According to the priest, such were the words of their god, Arkkiyus.
Overtime, the natives were Vulcanized, and spoke fluently with the Vulcan Tongue. The Union of tribes was also named the Animus Republic, and was classified as a superclan, as it was made of three different ones combined together. Extroph, the man with the orange, had the title of Panthera Fatalis. Chris, the man in the green, had the title of Reptilia Orientalis. Khybon, the man in the green, had the title of Canis Lupus. Vincent, the former Emperor, eagerly abandoned his Vulcan Imperial Title in favor of his Animusian/Vulcan one: Animus Magnus, which meant Great Soul literally and Great Mind in the Vulcan language. Both meanings fitted Vincent, and he was delighted to have such a title.
And so, the Animus Republic was formed. Its members are among the most loyal and hard-working of all. Even Vincent knew that Animus had an even bigger potential than his old home of Vulcan. With this thought, he smiled, and turned to face his Eagle Warriors, who were awaiting orders to protect the clan.
