THE STRANGE LAND OF THE STRANGE BREED
There was once a girl who lived in a strange land. It was a land filled with magic and mystery. Among the people who lived there were those of a strange breed.
They loved the dark instead of the light and thrived among the shadows. They were people of two colors, two minds, and two characters. Like a chameleon, they changed their colors according to their surroundings. On one hand, they thought like a human, and the other like that of a beast.
Every time the sun came up, the people behaved as humans do. They worked their fields, did their chores, and portrayed a respectable facade to the outside world.
However, when dusk fell, heard throughout the land were murmurs of a fearful sect.
