So It Came To Be... The Story of the Malakian
Lord-Malak flew across Exodus he spotted a glen within a ring of active volcanoes, upon this glen he found an odd thing... horses.. large, powerful looking horses.. the ones most warriors would covet and kill for.. roaming free in the wild... their galloping hooves sounding like the rising thunder of a fierce storm with fire on their hooves.
At the head of the herd, was a powerful sleek black horse with a crimson star upon it's head.. as Lord-Malak watched from his vantage point he noticed, this horses hooves burned of fire and scorched the ground under its wide gallop.. "Esra," looked to weigh about 600 lbs and was extremely agile.
As the herd moved into the glen, a gathering of shadow elves took up their positions.. trying to out-flank the herd.. and tried slaughtering these powerful creatures.
Many of the great horses died that day.. only 3 survived.. one being "Esra" who received most of the attack upon his body.. a single female named "Falling Comet"... and their Colt "Raven Heart."
Lord-Malak took it upon himself to guard these remaining horses and hide them in his volcanic home.. during that time of 100 years "Esra" and "Falling Comet" had a Brood of 25 Mares and 8 Stallions.... he shielded them from humanity, until he met VelvetAngelLuve.
On a special day he watched VelvetAngelLuve and her fiery spirit stand up to him, she had long dark hair blowing wildly in the wind, reminding him of Esra's dark mane. She would not back down, as she stood up to Lord-Malak that is the day he fell hopelessly in love with her. With all the love in his heart, he gave Velvet, "Esra II ".. to protect her on her long travels and to bring her swiftly back to his home.
"Esra " is the finest creation a deep black, and carries his fathers leader's crest upon his forehead his mane is pitch black, his coat is the darkest of Onyx colors and his hooves burn with a fire stronger than the heat of the volcano, he was born in. The Malakian breed is said to be double the endurance and speed than any other breed of horse. There are only a few of this breed in Merry Met Stables, each are heavily guarded and cared for, and never sold.
For one to own such a horse, the price would be an extraordinary amount, but more than a price they would have to show VelvetAngelLuve they are worthy of such a fine horse. Each of the Malakians, have seven stable hands to care for them as ordered by VelvetAngelLuve. The stables for the Malakians is off to one side of The Tower of Darkness where her son Novalis and she live, and separate from the rest of the stables. Only, a select few are ever to see them.
