Once upon a time in the Secondary Realm of Secrit Tresh, there lived the noble Royal Family of Vainglory. They ruled the civilization of flying people known as the Treshians. The best way to describe this race would be to say that they looked like a genetic mix between a human being and, more distinctly, the various classes of bird.

This long term life expectancy range gave the two races a relatable point of perspective from the other races that lived shorter lives.
This camaraderie was way before Lord Cat Tiamano took control of the Fegarians.
