Backstory :

The Zancoatl, was a myth carried through the generations. A massive serpent god who lives in the plane of Air, large enough to wrap itself around mountains and crush them with a force enough to shake the whole world. It travels through energy waves faster than light being almost invisible to the naked eye, only loud thunderous roars can be heard.

But one fateful day, a powerful Mage feast his ears upon this myth. Eager to view this magnificent creature, he researched and practice the magic of summoning rifts of Air. He could open small ones at first, and then bigger ones. Then, after many many years, he felt he was ready.

Climbing up on top of the highest mountain, he began casting his spell. He felt the wind around him raging with tempests and storms. Cyclones formed from the clouds. And then he saw the sky ripping apart as a bright blue light blinded him. A rift was formed before his very eyes, and something huge was coming out of it. Massive. Colossal. And the moment the mage saw what it was, he knew that the myth of the generations have been proven.....

..and he feared for his life.
