The Mute Age
The Mute had an unprecedented reign stretching back into time en memoriam. The Mute lived globally amidst every other race of the world. The Reigning Queen, living in the spinning Mute city of Sunozos, was approaching the end of her long-life and rule. She knew that the genetic-racial timer would soon reveal the next Queen – and it did.
The Princess was taken in by the old, as countless queens had before, and the Queen could see that there was something wrong with the princess – she had the signs of madness. The Queen discovered that the princess was not receptive to her instruction and correction, and this troubled her so, for the future of her people. So when it came time for the young Queen to enter her Chrysalis stage and dawn her Queen-dom, the old queen took matters into her own hands, sabotaging the new queen into a prolonged metamorphosis – in hopes that another, better queen-to-be would pop up.
The Queen waited. A couple centuries after this, humanity began to fear the Mute – for they did not understand them. There were some circles that even wanted to take their land so they could take the resource of Asis and monopolize the elves and dwarves (they mistook Asis for a natural resource and not a bi-product of the Queen. They did not realize this until some time much later). So five men from Rhyparia stole away into Mute City and killed the Queen, shattering psychic connection between all mutes.
