The Ocean Blooded came to great continent thousands of years ago with large ships. They were better educated and equipped and so they quickly became the ruling people of the land.
They were led by the Emperor, the next being from god. The Empire was at first very small consisting only of a few small cities, but quickly grew with the help of The Church.
100 years ago the great war ended and the Empire had taken over the great continent once and for all.
The Ocean Blooded are dark haired and have a darker complexion than the native people of the continent. They also age slowly compared to the other cultures, and easily live to be over a hundred years.
