When Chaos entered Unvail after the Khar, the world had changed. It was not only revived volcanoes and Gates, who's power have been changing ground around it, turning forests and valleys of Glennytir into waste grounds powdered by ashes... the air had changed, water had changed, opening of the Gates echoed in minds and bodies of all living creatures of Aivail, leaving its trace in their blood.
Strange and alien trace.
They were called Children of Invasion... they have been bearing during all 49 years of Invasion Wars, and sometimes after it, they have been bearing in ordinary orcish, human and gnomish families. They were different, with the stamp of Chaos, so obvious, as if their parents were broods of Underworlds.
They have been bearing and dying. By hands of their parents, from white fire of Inquisitors, from hunger and cold... those who survived were doomed to always be alone. They were traveling alone, those who suffered from persecution, who killed hunters - with small groups, later with bands on the territory of Empire and in foothills at the edge of Great Steppe... they learnt how to fight, how to hide, and use power given by their curse.
Or may be their Gift?
Their unification was just a question of time. 37 years after the beginning of Invasion, two armies of demonids met at the River of Tears, in the forest, powdered with ashes. One army cut it's way from the west, through barriers of Inquisition and imperial troops; the second one, going through Great Steppe and forest left by elves. Their leaders - Holorann from Dartholm and Ragtor the Fire Axe, were looking one at another for very long before shook their hands.
They looked like brothers, as if one of them was not a human and another one was not a child of orcish family.
They were of the same blood.
