Family back ground.
The Zatalk family wasn't always as strong as they are now. They were meduim strength. Morc was born and was hated. He was smaller than the other boys, and his intelligence was mocked. The only one on his side was his aunt and uncle on his mother's side. They were a stronger family in the arts. His aunt was starting to show the effects of constant magic use turning orange and spouting a fluffy tail. His uncle was a wolf. A big talking wolf.
One day his mother used the wrong magic type and instead of changing her body it damaged her mind. She went insane grabing a sword and trying to stab her children in their sleep. Morc awoke becuase he heard something strange. He went into the hallway and saw as his mother sufficated and stabbed his younger sister. Morc ran to his aunt and ucles home with his mother following close behind. Before he got to the front door, his mother grapped him but instead of killing him, she drove the knife into her brother in law. As his last breath his uncle transfered his magic into Morc as did the red armor his uncle wore. All Morc saw was the eyes of his uncle. Then a scream as his father who had came home early had stabbed his mother in the heart.
His father came over and lifted the dead body off of Morc. He turned to Morc's aunt. "your debt has been repayed" They both bowed and his father lead him away. From then on Morc started growing faster and his father took great care inteaching him everything from magic to delf defense. They learned that the armor like skin can be broken but it must take a lot of force or a sharp diamond like sword. He quickly became one of the most powerful warriors as he hit his mid 400's. Then his father had the talk with him. He talked about how to choose a female inorder to advance the family. He suggested a woman who listened or worshipped him which is usually a weak minded woman. He said the less you fight between each other, the more you can focas on the other families.
One day he saw a beautiful woman who was battling against a male from a weaker family. She was fluid motion while fighting. Her magic was the kicker, it was fast and almost at her beck and call. She used it well. Morc gathered information on her. Her family was not as old but was strong in magic, even more so then his mother's family was. She was intelligent as well. A natural silver tongue so to speak. Morc decided to have her as his mate.
In the middle of day in front of many families, he challanged her in the old style of fighting. No magic. Just their fists. She agreed and despite her speed and agility he won against her. He was the first one to have won in 300 years. He went to her family and asked for her hand. Her father agreed on one condition. If Morc could defeat him in order to evaluate if this was a good business deal. Morc easily defeated him and the two were married.
Over the years she realized that he respected her for her skill and would ask her for her thoughts on plans and arrangents. She quickly came to respect him as well and their relationship went from business to companions. With few fights at home, their full attention could be focased on family and polotics. Together they put the Zatalk name back to the full power it once was and became deadly.
After their daughter reached 457th birthday the war began. The war against the Tuath De. Balor had come to him and asked him to join him in the battle. He answered that his family would join. So his wife, oldest son and daughter joined him in the great battle while the youngest son stayed at home to hold the fort. His oldest son died early in the war.
Son: died in the war.
Ninaish was from a power magic using family. So much that most of her family were animals in their final form. She was smart and quick. She disobeyed her father by refusing any advance by a suitor unless they beat her in battle. She would not become her mother who was soft spoken and did what ever her father said. She learned early on how to use magic to aid her in battle. Little spells, just enough to put them off balance so she can land a blow. She was agile and flexible. She had killed many men who had attemped to claim her. She had many friends in low and high places so nothing was done around her family unless she knew about it. She even started to change her father's plans and got herself into a lot of trouble that way. She had asilver tongue and could sweet talk her way out of anything.
Her life had been uneventful untill she grew older. She didn't waist time learniing how to get stronger, instead learned the weak points of The formian body. She learned where to hit to take out her enemy fast. She studied the other species as well, knowing full well things were becoming tense between the five species.
Then the day came when she was challenged. But unlike the many before him, he challanged her in the old way. No magic. She accepted knowing who he was but not how skilled he was. He used moves that she had never seen before and was able to beat her. Feeling defeated she took him to her father who was stronger than her. Yet hope failed as he too was defeated. At least she would know he was strong enough to hold his own.
Over the years she realized he valued her opinion and when she asked him he just said that she was intelligent and valuable. She soon learned that his father had warned him that a fighting household woud make it harder to rise in strength, so she too learned to respect him. They became companions and it helped even more after she had children. They were strict but informal with their children. As long as they improved and did nothing to insult the family, they were treated very well. They were distant parents emotionally but always there when needed.
Then the war happened. She lost both sons
Daughter to Morc and Ninaish Zaltalk.
Family: One of the strongest families, very close to The Conard Family and Balor, the leader.
Ais was strong is magic growing up but early on started to change. After she grew wings and feathers she realized that she no longer needed to change. Her bones had become hollow and allowed her to become quick footed and using the wings gave her an advantage in battle. She waisted no time in learning everything her mother and father taught her. They had protected them as kids but because of this, all of their children became strong and lived longer. Almost everything about their family was backwards. Attentive parents who had a mutual respect towards each other with little fighting. That was unlike most families in their culture. She was givent the ability to choose her suitor. As long as no male was able to best her in battle she was given freedom.
Avis was a strong but silent type warrior. She tended to listen more because everybody likes to talk. The more they talk the more you know. She didn't have to talk at all with some people. That was her strength. She was artistic in her magic. that was considered weird but she loved to create beautiful things with her magic. So far she only was able to create stones but she was trying. Dark magic tends to prefer hidious creations. She was a feirce warrior and had already started setting up her own web of spies.
