    Long ago, long before the Six Tribes existed, even before the greatest
    of the seers could divine the creation of the Six Tribes, a powerful God
    called Aebrynis created a world in the Prime Material and named it after
    himself. He created a race similar to Elves of his friend Corellon and
    named them the Sidhelien. The Sidhelien were one with the world of their
    creator, and they rejoiced in its bounty. But the Sidhelien were lonely,
    and wanted other intelligent creatures to make them company. So Aebrynis
    called on Moradin, another of his friends, and asked him to create some
    of his Dwarves to trade with the Sidhelien. Creator of the Dwarves
    agreed and created some of his people on Aebrynis. Dwarves lived in
    mountains, and the Sidhelien in woods of a small continent on Aebrynis.
    They often traded and exchanged art and culture, living in peace and
    happiness for ages.

    But when there is nothing wrong, there are evil forces that try to make
    something wrong. Evil gods, Baatezu and Tanar`ri discovered the world
    Aebrynis created and wanted to feed on it. So evil races such as
    Goblinoids, Ogres, Trolls, Gnolls and similar came into being. For a
    long time Sidhelien and Dwarves fought against these minions of evil,
    and balance between good and evil was established on Aebrynis.

    Aebrynis noticed this but didn`t interfere, as he considered balance a
    good thing. Enjoying the beauties of his creation, he met and fell in
    love with a Sidhelien woman called Cerilia. They lived in happiness for
    a long time and she bore him many offsprings who lived among the
    Sidhelien. Anduiras, the oldest son of Aebrynis and Cerilia, was the
    most warlike of all his children. He spent a lot of time fighting evil
    creatures with Sidhelien armies. Basaia we the oldest daughter. Unlike
    her older brother, she was calm and calculating, always trying to
    prevent him from charging into his death. Masela was a quiet girl,
    always residing near the coast of Cerilia, trying to spend as much time
    in water as she could. Brenna indulged in trade and often travelled
    between the realms of Sidhe and Dwarves, bringing high-quality goods
    back with each her journey. Reynir was the most friendly with Sidhelien,
    and spent most of his time in the woods, enjoying the creations of his
    father. Vorynn was interested in magic and nothing else. He spent a lot
    of time with his father, learning the ways of great godly powers.

    The family lived in happines, but everything comes to an end. Jealous of
    their happiness, a powerful Baatezu known as Azrai came to the world,
    trying to take it from Aebrynis. Angry God expelled Azrai from his
    world, but not before the devil managed to do what he came for. Cerilia
    was suffering from a deadly hellish disease, and not even a God as
    powerful as Aebrynis could help her. Overwhelmed with thoughts of
    revenge, Aebrynis left his world and went into Baator, searching for
    Azrai, trying to find and destroy him on his home plane, once and for
    all the times. Azrai could not hide long from one of the most powerful
    dieties, and was soon discovered and destroyed in a fierce battle.
    Aebrynis tried to take Azrai`s devilish heart from his corpse, but to
    his surprise failed to find it. Then Azrai`s spirit rose from his
    smashed body, roaring with evil laughter. He told Aebrynis that he
    encased his heart in the center of Aebrynis` world, and that it can
    never be removed without destroying the world itself.

    Desperate, Aebrynis captured Azrai`s spirit and took him back to his
    world. After a long time of pondering, he decided that he could not
    destroy his creation just to undo Azrai. Instead, he decided to
    sacrifice himself and turn his world into an eternal prison for Azrai.
    Using the energy of his own divine essence, Aebrynis erased all memories
    from Azrai, putting him into ages-long sleep. The rest of his power he
    used to create another world around his own, the world made of all
    negative emotions he never expirienced before. His energy almost gone,
    he instructed his children to take care of his world, and to help Azrai
    become a good diety once he reawakens. Finally, he created a new
    continent, Aduria, where his children would guard Azrai, and erased all
    knowledge of gods from the minds of his beloved Sidhelien.

    With Aebrynis gone and Azrai in sleep, Aebrynis` children rose to
    godhood and created their own people. Similar to Sidhelien, yet
    shortlived and much more fertile, these Humans were created to provide a
    great number of worshippers and power needed to contain Azrai if his
    memories were not fully ereased. Anduiras created Andu, a warlike people
    like himself. Brenne created the Brecht, a trading and peaceful nation.
    Reynir created his Rjurik who lived in the wildlands as one with the
    nature, much like his father`s Sidhelien, yet in a way unique to Humans.
    Masela created Masetians, seafaring people who kept eye on Cerilia.
    Vorynn was against the idea of creating another race from the beginning,
    but did so when the majority decided that it should be done. He created
    the Vos and gave them the least hospitable lands on Aduira, never paying
    much attention to them. Abandoned by their creator, the Vos were always
    the least developed of all Humans. Finally, Basaia grew to be the most
    powerful of Aebrynis` children. She was against her father`s decision to
    give Azrai another chance, and refused to guard him in his sleep, much
    less tutor him when he reawakens. She used her immense power to create
    another continent, called Djapar, and settled it with her own people,
    called Basarji.

    The Six Tribes lived in peace and happiness until Azrai awakened, and
    some time after that event. Ages after he was imprisoned, former Baatezu
    awoke as a young diety, knowing nothing of the universe and secrets of
    good and evil. The other gods accepted him into thier ranks, teaching
    him of all they knew. Even Basaia was delighted with his eagerness to
    learn.

    However, happy times lasted short, as always. Young Azrai noticed that
    other gods had their people while he didn`t. For the first time he felt
    jealousy, a thing new to him, a thing he could not learn from his
    tutors. With jealousy, come memories of jealousy he felt towards
    Aebrynis, and then the other memories slowly started coming back one by
    one. However, he didn`t confront his enemy`s children immediatelly. He
    learned more, regaining his power. He created his own people, who grew
    to match those of Basaia. He took over the Vos from uncaring Vorynn and
    gained alliance with the other evil forces on Aebrynis. He regularly
    went into the Shadow World, seeking a way to escape the prison.

    In his power, he foresaw the events that would lead to the Battle of
    Mount Deismaar and his own destruction. So, when he discovered the way
    out of Aebrynis and the Shadow World, he kept waiting for the battle,
    planning to escape in the last moments and let the other gods destroy
    themselves.

    However, he was late, and his scheme failed. A part of him survived in
    the Shadow World, now known as Cold Rider, making it even more dreadful
    and imprisoning place than Aebrynis ever could. Even with their
    destruction, the scions of divine Bloodline of Aebrynis and Azrai are
    still battling for dominance of the world.

    Milos, you have an interesting start, but you`ve completely left out the
    old races; giants and dragons inhabited cerilia before elves. In
    addition, dragons did not gain bloodlines from Deismaar, and are noted to
    be immune. That`s a mythological connection that needs some explaining.

    I read one novel in which Dragons were explained as mysterious race of
    unknown origins. I think it was Death Gate, but I am not sure. I liked
    that idea, so I would explain Dragons of Cerilia as mystical creature,
    maybe a part of the world Aebrynis didn`t foresee.

    BTW, I know that the creatures you mentioned are old, but are you sure
    they existed before Elves? I saw no official info about the origins of
    Elves.
