Dran had three royal daughters. Ermesindh, Drouvella and Audisterith. Dran never made any of his daughters his heir, and for that, they resented him. But he did grant them one gift. Using magic, he halved their souls, extending their lives and granting them eternal youth.
When his empire collapsed, it collapsed peacefully. For a time, things where silent. But the ages passed, and eventually, peoples all over Alucinore picked up the pieces, and out of the silence new kingdoms flourished. Each of the daughters became queen of their own kingdom.
Ermesindh built her kingdom high on a great mountains.
Drouvella built hers on a great body of water.
Audisterith built hers deep inside of a great, vast cave.
