War of the Species: A Shapeshifter Rp
For centuries, a war between shapeshifters has been fought. No one knows why anymore - all they know is they must fight. It's been bred into them, their ancestors did it, therefore they must do it as well. Come on in and join the war!

No one is quite sure what started the war. The Felines, Canines, Serpents, Crocuta (Hyenas), Reptiles (with the exception of serpents - they fled to create their own kingdom), Elephants, who have become neutral in recent years, Rhinoceroses, and Avians have fought their entire lives, and now it's been bred so far into them that it seems like an attempt to end this war would be futile. Though some of them - like the Avians and Canines, for example - seem to get along on better terms, they would still kill each other if given enough reason. The Shapeshifters all are trained to be warriors - even children and elderly. From infancy, they hear songs about war from their mothers, they are told that anything unlike them is evil, and it must be disposed of. All songs of peace that once may have been sung has disappeared, leaving almost no hope, even in the eldest of Shifters. As children in school, they learn how to handle swords, and how to use their abilities to their advantage, instead of math, language, sciences, or other important subjects. Their history class is biased - they praise their species, and belittle others. By the age of ten, children are thrown into battle.

It's a harsh life for Shapeshifters. Many do not make it past the age of eighty, though they're supposed to live forever, due to being slaughtered mercilessly. The only ones even remotely safe in this harsh time are the royal families of each species, and even they are not that safe.

A new enemy emerged sometime during the war. When the queen of the Avians at the time, and the King of the Serpents at the time, had fallen in love, a "monster" was born. The first hybrid, Karregan, was attacked by the other royals of both families, then left for dead. He managed to regain strength, with the help of the Elephant queen, then took a vow to help all hybrids.
