History

The Rifle is the oldest of the canine breeds, and derived from a group of wild canines that were the first to be contacted by the Sky Gods. Every other dog breed can be traced back to this one group, but enough generations and out-crossing has occurred that most of these breeds are no longer closely related.

The Jaro breed group was next to evolve, and three family types were formed, the Southern, Northern and finally the Petite, which is a younger type and therefore less common.

The Taiga Gazal began to evolve in the open taiga, fields and plains. It was only generations later that the Steppe Gazal type formed, after individuals of the Taiga breed dispersed to the desert and adapted to the biome.

The Royale Rifle breed took shape after a group of Rifles settled down at the coast. The two breeds are still quite closely related, but temperament and lifestyle vary greatly between the two.

A lot of crossbreeding has occured between several families over the years, and some of the newer breeds can be traced back to these breedings.

The King's Hall hound is the result of generations of Rifle Royales crossbreeding with Taiga Gazals. This new breed is a lot thicker than their relatives, and has adapted to living in thick forests where brute force and a thick skin is often needed to break through the thick brush.

One of the most unusual breeds that has evolved through crossbreeding is Vildmarkens Terrier. This breed can be traced back to the Rifle and Petite Jaro.

It is currently the smallest of all breeds, and has adapted to a life underground where they are safe from all the dangers above.

The Taiga Lion is currently the only known intelligent feline species that can be found at Aedra. Unlike the Zioqa species, these cats have adapted to a life on the plains.
