Many centuries ago, a man by the name of Astaroth was born. He was all parts of Magesc in one. He was an asarei, a raguati, and a dovaa. He grew, proud of his heritage, though this story goes back to the beginning, before the wars between the races began.
Astaroth was born of an asarei and raguati Hybrid mother and a dovaa father. Growing up, he was taught about magic of all kinds. His powers stemmed from deep within and he knew that he would grow to do great things in the world of Magesc.
As he matured into adulthood, the man began to wonder why dragons were such mystic creatures that were hunted instead of befriended. All he could think of was why not befriend the dragons? Peace would fill the land if only he could provide the people with a way to exist in harmony with the majestic creatures.
It took years, but finally, a small research lab was created within the sacred Kawyn Ruins, The ruins soon became the foremost place for major research and spell casting; although in some aspects the former use as a place of worship could still be seen. Astaroth soon after gained many followers, some of which became his apprentices and joined in his research about dragons. Many of them were also taught about the magical arts of manipulation and illusion.
The Spell of Bonding was then discovered which gave the captive dragons at the facility the ability to form mental and empathic connections with a guardian. However some thought of this bond to be slavery while others embraced it as a bond most fulfilling to be able to tie their life to another being like the closest of friends.
However the spell had unexpected side-effects and caused the dragons to have stunting in their magical and physical growth and gave them a unique appearance similar but quite unlike their original dragon counterparts. To celebrate the uniqueness of his creations, and to differentiate them from the wild dragons who seemed caused havoc and chaos in the world of Magesc, Astaroth called them khehora.
The spell seemed to work, the khehora, instead of instantly becoming aggressive, were passive and yearned to learn from Astaroth and his apprentices. So, each researcher took an orakoi, -- the name given to the dragonlings -- to begin the teaching process. Those khehora began to exhibit a natural ability to help boost the morale, strength, and even magic of their guardian just by being around. It was quite an extraordinary discovery!
After months of research, one of Astaroth's apprentices took advantage of the Bonding Spell and treated the khehora he had bonded to with abuse and disrespect to his Master's ignorance.
These khehora that had been bonded to this apprentice had fallen into the trap of their abusive guardian and became disenchanted with their status in life, some even gaining a great anger against their bonded guardian, and wanting nothing more than to escape their horrible life.
During the research process, some orakovan were intelligent enough to watch and learn what the apprentices were learning in order to obtain further mastery of the magical arts. It would prove quite handy in their plot to escape from the Sanctuary and afterward when they were to live in the wild. The closer they watched, the more they would learn about the spells and incantations used to enchant the dragon's eggs and different magical spells used on them to incapacitate or further weaken their growing power. The khehora, unbeknownst to the congregation of researchers, were slowly becoming just as intelligent as the apprentices themselves. Self discovery of their latent dragon power and increased knowledge of the magical arts through watching their guardians was all to be put towards the task of escaping the prison which they felt they were confined. These once tame khehora were finally able to break free of the Bonding Spell completely by using what they had learned from their unsuspecting guardians and the other apprentices.
Over time, these khehora became quite powerful creatures in comparison to their bonded counterparts. They were able to live alongside their fellow khehora without the need of the Bonding Spell. But they kept this state a secret, for they were still carefully planning ways to escape the facility. The khehora had become as wild as the dragons they had been created from, feral some might say, but they were wise and continued to act like meek slaves to their "guardians" until the time was right for their great plan to unfold. These khehora were stronger and more powerful in comparison to their bonded brothers for they had learned to nurture the magic and strength of the dragon within them, with some stealing secrets from the very "guardians" that they were bonded to.
Finally, the day came when the khehora used all the knowledge they had accumulated, intelligence they had gained to finally break the bonds that had chained them to these abusive "guardians". It had come out of nowhere, even Astaroth was caught by surprise. He soon however learned the he wasn't able to control these feral khehora once they had started their rebellion and escape. They had grown too powerful and smart to be contained in comparison to their bonded brethren. These khehora were now feral, bonding with no soul and being raised by their parents in small family groups.
Months soon passed after the great escape and those feral khehora began to reproduce with each succeeding generation becoming more feral. However, the Bonding Spell that had been used on them had an odd side-effect that was unknown to even Astaroth himself. Without the bonding of a khehora soul with one of the Magesc races, a khehora could master their unique innate magic to grow powerful enough to gain a form quite similar to the peoples of Magesc. These humanoid khehora were then known as khehorian, a new powerful and dangerous race within Magesc able to use the same power as their Dragon and dovaa brethren and the intelligence they had gained from their time at the research facility. These more powerful khehorian soon gained the position of the 'leaders' of their pack. However the process of becoming a khehorian is often dangerous and complex, with most failing in their efforts and some even resulting in death that even to this day very few khehorian exist.
Astaroth would have been proud were he still alive today, his creations had gained a will of their own and powers that no one else could have ever anticipated. These...are the khehora.
