Dreekt and Kreet were both born in the outskirts of Rentaz, the Capitol of Zentar. Being siblings they knew the same people and being skravyn most of the people they knew didn’t like them.
Worst of all were the humans. It seemed like most all of them went out of their way to verbally assault skravyn. Especially children. They did know some great humans who cared just as much for them as they did their own children, but as they got older fewer mice humans noticed them.
About the time they were full-grown (the age of 14 for skravyn) they didn’t notice any good in humans. That knew it was there because they had witnessed it, but it became harder for them to believe it.
One day their parents caught wind of a prophecy. Dark Under was set to attack Rentaz through the cave. They didn’t tell their children anything specific, but said Dark Under forces were amassing. Overik was far from any Dark Under entrances so it would be safe they thought.
Dreekt and Kreet never made it to Overik however as they left the boat at different stops along the river. Something was calling them north, and Dreekt knew he would never go to Overik. Kreet disillusioned herself that she would go with their parents, but at the stop after Dreekt she took left the boat.
