In a world parallel to earth there lives several species of creatures beyond human understanding. Big lion like beasts equipped with a long sharp tail, huge wings, jagged claws and fangs, horns of gold and silver, and golden fur. Their powers are almost limitless. They are known as Dakotians. They are currently ruled by Lord Dakota and Lord Skylar whom share the responsibility of possessing two ancient powers and protecting their home as brothers. Long before they came to rule and before their father an evil power reigned over their home...

  A long time ago a ruthless ruler known as King Archen reigned supreme and spread his evil dark powers to control the kingdom. Many challengers faced him in order to restore balance, but none prevailed, for Archen possessed the power of the Shadow Dakotian. Although Archen wasn't always evil. When he was young he was shunned away due to him being the Shadow Dakotian. Along that dark lonely path he fell in love with a young teenager about his age. She was known as Armata the Heaven Dakotian. Armata was to be the ruler, she was next in line to become the protector and ruler of the kingdom. They spent many years together and they quickly fell in love and married when they became adults. They were both like yin and yang, not meant to be friends or mates. Armata knew she had to dispose of Archen due to them being mortal enimies, but how could she? She loved him, and he loved her. They ruled the kingdom together bringing peace and balance to their world. But this was not meant to be. Shortly after they have a child, Archen turned cold, he excluded himself from any kin to kin activity. Until one day he snapped. His rage seemed to be never ending as well as his power. Armata loved him and she believed he wasn't like the Shadow Dakotians before him. Archen's anger and greed forced him to lash out at his mate and his son. Armata and Archen fought endlessly for two hundred hours. Finally he overpowered her, killing her in front of their newborn son. When his mate was out of the way he focused on his child, walking slowly towards him with blood red eyes, and a huge cloud of black suffocating smog. Archen charged towards the child only managing to cut his eye before disappearing in the smog.

Their child became an orphan, The caretakers of the castle named him slice, and as soon as he could take care of himself as well as fight and fly, he was announced the new king. Slice grew up having to make decisions for war, peace and his kingdom's needs, as well as protect his kin from invading humans that followed his kin to this world. He fell in love with a noble from far away named Sakura. They married and ruled from that point on...

Slice and Sakura had a child, and that was the infamous Dakota. As the years went on Dakota never grew that much, for he whom was the prince was also a runt. In fighting school he was bullied by his older kin. They mocked him because he was a runt. Dakota grew and grew as well as his power. He used to share and do everything with his parents, but he became more secretive because of this strange cloud and the surge of the Shadow Dakotian power awakening. He was scared, he knew what he was becoming and thought of how his father would react. His power kept growing and growing. Thus it became harder to conceal the power and he smog grew bigger and more quickly the more Dakota tried to deny its mourning for him.

One day Slice noticed something in the halls of his castle that brought back painful flashes of his parents. It was black smog floating in the halls and leaking out of a room. Slice followed it to the source carefully holding his breath in the thickest parts of the cloud. Slice opened the door only to find his son cowering in a the middle of the room looking at his father. Slice stared motionlessly in his son's eyes. Red blood, pupiless eyes looked back in return, they were Dakota's. His fur was like it was charred after a heavy forest fire, pitch black and a thick cloud of smog hung around Dakota. The only sound was Dakota yelling "Dad! Get back please, the fog don't breath it!" Dakota sobbed and cried. This crying traveled down the hall and attracted Sakura. She ran to where the crying came from. Slice snapped at her growling "Get Back!" he yelled. Her only response was "Slice please don't do this, he's our son." Slice ignored her plea and called for his guards. Slice and his guards had seized Dakota carefully putting a stone known as shadow stone, a rock that of a single touch would render a Dakotian powerless until they let go of this dangerous rock. Dakota was to be killed on the spot after the hearing . Sakura's heart was slowly and painfully breaking, she cried and cried during the trial. Dakota heard all the voices talking about how and when they will kill him, but he paid no attention to those sounds, he couldn't help not to hear his mother's crying. There was not much Dakota could do, it aggravated him to the point where his heart raged for his mother and gave him a huge surge of power. This surge of power was like feeding him and he loved it. Dakota quickly gather anger and greed under the surface of his skin. He spoke out towards the crowd and his father "How touching, you talk to each other about peace and safety with no sadness and despair. Well hows this for your conversation...YOU IGNORE MY MOTHER'S SADNESS AND DESPAIR... only to talk on and on about no sadness and despair! You all make me sick." Dakota stood up and his fur was turning black, his eyes glowed like red fireflies as black smog began to fill the room. Suddenly the crowd started screaming and only Slice remained calm. The shadow stone chains began to snap and crumble into dust. The guards ready to attack charged into the smog only to be battered around and thrown out of the cloud in which they laid motionless slowly suffocating. A pair of red eyes gleamed at Slice whom still was calm with Sakura frozen in fear next to him. More guards came and cleared the cloud with their speed, then charged in towards Dakota. This time Dakota did not touch them, the smog formed back in one big chunk of smoke and attacked the guards on its own, entering their lungs and suffocating them. Dakota laughed at the pain and chaos he caused, it was like eating something sweet and wanting more and more. Dakota flew up and out of the stained glass window above Slice's throne. Like a bird of prey, he soared high in the sky above his kingdom one last time, it would surely end in his death if he stayed. Dakota dared not to look back, he feared that disappointed scowl his father would always give him. He would hear the sound of wings behind him. Dakota growled “what now…” as he spun around now soaring upside down as he looked back, they were closer than he had thought. He smirked and folded his wings, diving downward while, when something snapped in his mind and directed him on what to do. Immediately he opened his wings now quite low from them. The black cloud appeared from way above and formed a dummy copy parallel to himself. Dakota slowed himself down, his pursuers now gaining on him, with confident smirks on their faces. A shimmer of shadow clouds sparked as his attackers collided and Dakota burst into a shadow which disappeared. A shadow loomed over his pursuers that was closing fast and hard.  One of them looked up, his eyes turning to slits as he yelled in horror “LOOK OUT!” The other snarled, when he too had his eyes turn into slits as the sound of claws slashing a throat. Blood splattered on Dakota’s face as he held the Dakotian in his talons, he breathed a black could into the dying dakotian’s lungs to finish the job, slamming the dying dakotian into the ground. Dakota snarled now racing after the terrified attacker. The dakotian screamed in terror as Dakota pinned him almost instantly. A smile came on Dakota’s face as he spoke in an echoed demonic voice. “IT’s your lucky day…. What's your name?” Dakota snarled “It… doesn’t matter, run away…. Tell my father I take my leave, and when I come back he WILL DIE!!!” Dakota roared as slashed at the Dakotians wing shredding it mercilessly , then taking off.  The fearful dakota scrambled to his feet, his outside dew claws raking up the dirt giving him a boost as he ran, his bad wing dragging helplessly. Dakota clawed at the top of a massive cliff. This was a famous cliff, a landmark and boarder that marked the edge of kind Slice’s kingdom. Dakota turned around facing off the cliff as the sun began to set behind him. Tears would fall down his face as he spoke in his own voice weakly. “Goodbye….. Father, I’m sorry… I… I couldn’t meet to your standards.”  As he spokes a voice spoke to him. “Go Dakota.. Train until your bones break… your soul snaps and your power rages… then call to me and together we will take back our home….” Dakota didn’t question the voice… he WANTED revenge and would follow that voice to his death if he had to….

I seem to have accidentally (deliberately) clicked the Golden Horned Dakotian. I'd like to make one of their species!
