The Pup of Nam


...About how the Pup of Manaan brought about the fall of the Canis Age
Once, in an age long past, vicious canines ruled the world, or "Canis Firmus" as they understood the order of things... Humanity as we know it did not yet exist; proto-humans were a lower order of life and existed primarily as a food source for the great predators of the dark. These great predators worshipped many conflicting things, but above all they came to worship the brightest star in the night sky, the Nam Star. But until this enlightened time the Canis Age was marked by ferocious fractious wars between competing families, tribes and races of hounds, canine against canine, in a tooth and claw battle for supremacy.
