The Bral are those creatures that existed before the Light of the Ashen reached the Plains of Darkness. When the Ashen fell they swarmed its body and became addicted to its light, even as it ate away at them. All fought over it. Many were changed by it. Among those changed, the Listeners were victorious. It was around this time the Ashen took its second dying breath.
The Bral would not be seen again until the Ashen's final breath ended.
The Elder Dark
The three strongest Bral were known as the Elder Dark. They were worshiped as deities by the rest of the Bral, but disappeared when the Listeners rose victorious in the Bral wars.
