Years ago, this island was inhabited by nothing but bugs, insects, and ravens. From North to South, East to West, the birds could be seen everywhere. No other animals inhabited the island. One day, a group of 6 horses arrived on the island- 3 stallions, and their mares. The leader of the group, Haught, seemed fascinated by the birds. The others were as well, but they were content in just looking at the black birds. Haught was completely transfixed.
One day, Haught crossed a bird that was injured- pitying the bird, he nursed it back to health the best as he could. He almost thought the bird wouldn't make it- and then the bird transformed.
It was not a raven, but the Celtic Raven Goddess- Morrigan. Pleased that the stallion did not leave her die, she blessed him and the other 5 horses.
Years went by, and slowly, more horses came to the island. The ravens would bond with a horse, be companions, and spirit guides. This bond is called 'Ravenhaught', taken from the bond first made with the stallion years earlier.
There was only one alliance, with Haught as the king. However, as time passed, he slowly started losing his sanity. He was more evil than he had been. His two advisers saw this, and, taking some members of the original herd, and leaving. All the horses of the 'Possessed', as Haught's group was named, slowly started showing these aggressive tributes, though there where a few 'bad eggs'.
Taking their herds, the other two stallions started their own alliances- the Angelic, who strive to do as much good in their life as they can, and the desolate, who are neither good nor evil- they are too busy trying to survive.
To this day, almost a century later, the bond between horses and ravens are a strong as ever, however, the relationship between the Angelic and the Possessed has fallen into a downward spiral- the Desolate doing everything in their power to stay out of the crossfire between the two waring alliances, while also trying to calm things down.
