The Fifteen Clans
There are fifteen clans in stretched between the worlds. Each Clan was created by an Original, the first of each of the first magical species. Some believe that, once, these Originals were friends and allies, but that a time came when some betrayed the others, and that this was the creation of the Punishment. Whatever the truth, today the Originals and the Clans are divided between the Punishment and the Awake.
