They had the power, they dominated the city, the world.
The order reigned ... their order.
And then they came ... Brother, sister. Raptors. Leather clad. Slipping into the night, spreading disorder. States until they bled. The ancestral power, remained intact.

Until the advent of Raptors, exterminators, who have not forgotten!
