Clan Information

Quite some time ago, there were a pair of twins. They didn't really get along, no, but they were siblings nonetheless, and had to learn to deal with each other. Apollo and Artemis were quite the pair, they weren't perfect, but together, complemented each other in a way that could never quite be accomplished when they were alone. It wasn't long before Zeus, king of the gods, started paying attention to them.

Apollo, the golden boy with bedroom smiles and eyes as blue as the sea. He asked for the sun, and it was given to him in all its shining glory. He revelled in it, and, dancing in its golden rays, accepted Zeus' offer of immortality. Along with the sun he was given a set of beautiful wings, magnificent, magical, and dripping in gold.

Artemis, the silver girl with stardust trailing from her fingertips and twilight braided into her hair. She saw how happy her brother was with the sun, and so asked for the moon. It was given to her, of course, and she loved the allure of mystery that it allowed her, loved the shadows that danced in the lunar light. She got wings as well, extraordinary ones, dipped in constellations and painted with silver.

Along with this, the twins were gifted with the power of divinity. The future is always, always blurry, but there is a small comfort in knowing whether there is safety or danger ahead. Apollo used the sun to guide him, and Artemis the moon, and together they were able to discern parts of what was to come. Not all of it, for the future is ever changing, but some things will last forever and beyond, past the edge of time and even further than that, to the end of all that is known.

They soon learned that whittling away your time took on a whole new meaning when suddenly you actually had all the time in the world. It wasn't long before they discovered that human wasn't the only form that they could assume. The twins spent different eras of time living life in different forms. We're going to visit the period they spent as dragons.

It wasn't difficult to get used to their dragon forms, and soon after they learned this species was called Spirals. Loneliness though, soon seeped into their bones. The twins were more or less satisfied with each other's company, but it didn't hurt to gain a few more friends. They made a home in the Tangled Wood, and were soon joined by others. The twins deemed their little group Equinox, because above all else, Apollo and Artemis were sure that they were supposed to stand next to each other, as equals, until the sun and moon were swallowed by time itself.

It wasn't long after that they began to accumulate what could loosely be called a kingdom. Apollo jokingly called it the XLands because he thought it sounded mysterious and powerful, when it was just them. The name stuck though, and so the Equinox clan rose to be the royal council of these lands, with the twins as vagabond leaders.

Other clans were formed within the numbers, and they all broke off into little factions that each had their own talents. Flight and species didn't matter here, because the XLands accepted one and all, and it was soon clear to see that Apollo and Artemis had built quite the life here in the Tangled Wood, wherein their kingdom stretched further than they ever thought it would, with little pockets of territory throughout the lands.
