They were the Cheysuli, a race of magical warriors gifted with the ability to assume animal shape at will. For centuries they had been allies to the King of Homana, treasured champions of the realm. Until a king’s daughter ran away with a Cheysuli liege man and caused a war of annihilation against the Cheysuli race.Twenty-five years later the Cheysuli were hunted exiles in their own land, feared for their sorcery, their shapechanging.
