Founding & Daemon-Draluix Conflicts
The Daemon tribes which traveled to the west walked miles on miles to encounter a very proud and self righteous race called the Draluix. Which had occupied the now called Jaiht A Xua region. The Draluix, Arrogant in both their faith and their history were not very welcoming to the Daemon on first contact, insulting their different looks, their culture and where they had come from. Seeing as how the Daemon came from an underground cave system and how the Draluix believe being higher to the skies were to be closer to the gods they saw the Daemon as an unholy godless species which they disliked the idea of.
The Daemon tribes had been disgruntled with their new location alone, with the light firstly blinding them and while the temperate climate wasn't hard for them to adapt to they had to built shelters to protect from the rain and other weather which was new to them. The tribes scattered around the mountain-sides and plains near to the collapsed tunnel system. Some tribes even remained in the remains of the tunnel system treating them as caves, expanding outwards once they ran out of room.
The Draluix who were united a single species kept goading the different tribes of Daemon to war. The Daemon being disgruntled and a generally aggressive species were happy to oblige the the Draluix taunts. The tribes' attacks against the Draluix only confirmed their opinion on the Daemon even further. The Draluix now finally fought the Daemon tribes, in what they called and believed was the greater good to exterminate unholy species from their next possible settling areas.
The tribes were unable to score victories against the Draluix nation of Aeova. The Daemon while hostile between tribes instinctively knew they had to battle for their lifes and do anything to gain victory. Thus a couple of tribes began to unite the tribes. Contacting all known tribes persuading them to fight against the Draluix menace. Most of the tribes had agreed to join eachover due to the known threat of attack from any possible side, they had to work together to survive.
They named the new nation Raium, meaning Thunder so they can shudder the land and beat back the self-righteous swine. To show their allegiance to the new kingdom the Daemon pierce a sphere to the tip of their tails.

They fought for years on end, seeming to never cease for the cause of peace, stricken by hate for eachover. This never ending war had been scouted by a few Haeomon adventurers but despite reports of two monstrous looking races in a bloody never ending war, the Haeomon settlers and regiments came north fleeing from "monsters" of the south. The Haeomon struck straight through villages of Raium occupying the way between where the Haeomon seemed to be heading. The Haeomon in their frightened state downright exterminated these villages. Raium had to act and began to hunt down the Haeomon. However the Haeomon achieved their scouted location and began building the coastal nation of Haeofi. Luckily for Haeofi, Aeova and Raium were rendered weak, demoralized and tired from their never ending war thus allowing them to succeed. Haeofi had just been founded however and there were not interested in a war with two other nations, using this initiative and the circumstances. Haeofi was able to achieve a truce which while didn't last forever, allowed Raium to recuperate from a dawning loss.
Raium was lucky from the chance give by Haeofi to survive but Raium didn't see it that way, holding contempt with Haeofi and Haeomon in general for interrupting their needed war with the Draluix. Raium planned and prepared supplies for next war, knowing or at least wishing it would come. And wars did come, in the next war against the other two kingdoms, Raium primarily attacked Haeofi hoping to eliminate them being exterminating Aeova. But due to Aeova's efforts and cunning plans, Raium wouldn't be able to achieve this. Then a cycle of truces, rebuilding then war began.

It believed this cycle would never end in Jaiht A Xua except until when three rulers who were fed up with the constant war nearly driving them all to destruction decided to open their borders and allow villages to found independence and join other nations was included in their peace treaty. With hopes that neither of the other nations would be able to attack with people sharing bonds between the whole region. This plan had worked for some time, but you would never be able to take away each of the kingdom's views of eachover. While in peace they started to attack and secretly sabotage eachover, trying to not cause war but still continuing the war effort.
This "peace" lasted for some time between Jaiht A Xua, until a certain priest began to have visions from the gods telling him to act. This priest then spread word amongst Raium with his fellow priests of the nearby temples. He gained an audience with the then current king of Raium, suggest to go to war. The King rathered this "peace" and laughed as the priest was thrown out. The priest started his vendetta against the King, heralding to every village about the blasphemous ruler. The priest gained enough support and a rebellion began.
Within a year, this rebellion has conquered Raium and executed the "horrid" Ruler. To act as a conduit for the Gods, the priest took place as monarch of Raium. With his orders he began to attack freely, causing the Aeovan-Haeofi Crusade against and the eventually downfall of Raium.
