'Half a century ago in a little village in France, there lived a clan of Gargoyles. For the most part, these creatures lived in peace with themselves, the humans and Nature around them. But not all the humans were happy to have another species living so close to them, especially one which could so easily overpower the village. One man, a mage grown so long in years that his magic was but hazy memories, remembered the times when people knew and trusted Gargoyles, and wished to protect his winged friends. He tried to cast a spell, but not exercising his talent for so many years had handicapped him. Instead of a protective dweomer, the spell that he cast forever rendered the clan wingless and tailless. Furious, the clan's proudest young ones murdered the mage... 'Not much is left of the village now but ruins. The clan drifted away from its cursed home, its members dispersing across the continent and only occasionally encountering one another. To this day, these strange creatures haunt this world; not human, not gargoyle. Drifters, they travel around the world in search of, but never finding, their home.' -Lost Traveler
