The Shaikan are humans who have the blood of Dragons within them. Because of this they are considered their own race and live apart from the rest of humanity and the races of light.

Nature Edit

They are the descendants of the alchemist Malacay, who once saved the life of the dragon Ur, receiving its eternal subservience in return

In order to seal this pact, the dragon agreed to enter into a blood pact with a person – something that had never happened before. This was nevertheless the only good deed that Malacay ever did. He became increasingly insane and met a dreadful end.

His descendants have nevertheless preserved the tradition and continue to live under the protection of the ancient dragon. Each of them enters into a blood pact with him. These dragon warriors are great fighters and commanders. Their ancestry means that they are revered by both the Light People and the Dark with an equal degree of fear and distrust. They therefore live between the fronts, belonging neither to the light nor the darkness.

History Edit

Began a thousand years in the past with Janus Malacay, the highest alchemist at the court of the first emperor of the Northern People. On the search for the power of the Materia Prima, that germ of life that can still be found in the blood of the first creatures of the world, back then Malacay joined his blood with the blood of the captured dragon named Ur. Thus he created a bloodline in whose veins the blood of the dragons was mixed with the traces of the humans' ancestors and which created a substance full of vital forces. In it the original spark of life, the germ of creation, came back into being. This blood not only made Malacay’s children stronger, faster and more robust than common people, the vital forces of the dragon blood sometimes even bestowed them with the ability to resurrect others by donating some of their blood

But all this sure had its price. Malacay’s spirit was corrupted by his success and with the power of this blood he set out to form the world's fate according to his will until the gods intervened and destroyed him. But his soul escaped into the blood of his children, where over centuries it hid as a whispering voice from the wrath of the gods. Along with it the curse of Malacay's evil spirit and the bad reputation about his break with the gods came over the dragonblooded. This is why they were called Shaikan, which means “godless” in the dark language. Fear, suspicion and a history mingled with treason and Malacay’s evil influence never let the Shaikan find a home, neither in the lands of the Light nor of darkness. They lived with war on all sides. Their extraordinary fighting power made them popular as mercenaries, but they could never find true allies.

Only with the destruction of Malacay’s soul by the last Soulbearer, the Shaikan were freed from the curse of treason and able to choose their own path. Now they have found a shelter in the land of Westguard and not only do they begin to build friendships with other nations, but for the very first time they also carry their own banner with pride as one independent nation among the peoples of Fiara.

Even if the number of Shaikan on the battlefield is usually small, their fighting power mostly outweighs those of other nations by far. Their shrewdness and versatility enables them to adapt their fighters and their equipment to the necessities of the battle at hand.

The Dark Elves call them “Shaikan”, which means both “godless” and “free”. This dichotomy captures and describes the life of these dragon warriors so accurately that they adopted this description as their own name over time.

Shaikan Blood in useEdit

Shaikans can share their blood with others, saving their lives and giving them their curse by doing so. Newly bound Shaikans can use their blood as effectively as any other descendant of Malacay. Those blessed with Shaikan Blood also bear a part of Malacay, newborn Shaikans could find controlling his savagery to be difficult. The Blood makes creatures faster and stronger, 'burns like fire', and makes the Shaikan act aggressively. This instinct encourages its owner to slaughter the 'weaklings', those who don't have the dragonblood.

Within each generation Malacay's soul chooses one Shaikan for his soul to manifest itself in. This Shaikan is called the Soul Carrier.

The blood of a Shaikan does not seem to have restrictions on who it can cause to become Shaikan. Through gameplay, a human dying of disease was given the Blood, which cured him of his ailments and changed his race. A human who recently died was given the Blood, who was healed, came back to life, and became Shaikan. This also happened with a Dark Elf and Orc. The Blood does have a minor restriction on itself though; though Shaikan can teleport to each other and bring each other back from the dead, it has a limited timeframe and effective distance.

ShaikurEdit

Shaikur, or the Iron Fields is the home of the Shaikan, a homeland between the lands of Light and Shadow, the Realm and the Norcaine.
