History Of The Jaguars

History of the Jaguars:


It is said Black Jaguars originated in the land known by humans as Armenia. Many believe Hayk, the legendary patriarch and great-great grandcub of Noah, was one of the first jaguars to bring his litters to this area. It isn’t clear where they lived before that. Hayk defeated the king there in 2492 BC and established his territory.

There were records of the generations of litters kept with the ancient laws and traditions. For over a thousand years these papers were kept sacred, viewed by those who proved themselves worthy of seeing them. Those jaguars who did see the truth of their hereditary and the written laws and traditions of their ancestors wrote them down from memory and passed them on to their litters.

This was how it came to pass. The incredibly strong bond, founded on one of the strongest rocks of traditions as their foundation, proved the purity and power of the black jaguar. Even into the twentieth century, many were able to recite the laws and traditions of their kind, which now had been passed down for over two thousand years. It was strongly believed if any jaguar strayed from these laws, or violated the truth of their heredity, they would destroy themselves and all who were related to them, in essence weakening the power unique to Black Jaguars.

As is true with any empire, government of any kind, be it human or any other species on earth, pride, a blood lust for complete power, and an insatiable thirst for greed fed by the belief this will create control over others, always comes before the fall. History does repeat itself. For those in a position to make a difference, it is too easy to ignore this fact when the smell of success and complete control dominate their thoughts.

All the Black Jaguars left their homeland, where they’d existed with complete control for centuries, during the humans’ Second World War. The narrow mindedness of humans were destroying their hunting ground and putting their lives in danger. It was decided to travel to a land completely unaffected by the war. After all, this wasn’t their battle and holding true to their traditions, Black Jaguars didn’t draw blood for someone else’s fight.

There were issues and disputes among the litters during their exodus. Traveling by ship wasn’t a preferred method of traveling. Many of the litters finally ended up in the rain forest in Central America, although once settled they learned the devastating news that their ancient laws and traditions along with the list of the generations had disappeared. No one could explain where these historical documents had gone. Some speculated they might have been traded for protection. Others feared they were destroyed by one of the human attacks during the war. There was no proof. No one was able to sniff out the truth.

Two of the oldest litters among the black jaguars are the Kalusians and the VicMorans. As of the twenty-first century, knowledge of the original laws and traditions and list of generations had weakened. Sires and mothers didn’t know all the facts about these original papers to pass them on to their cubs. The Kalusians and VicMorans still exist though. And that is what this series is about. These two litters, who inevitably will come to head, shall cross paths, unite and attack each other. They don’t know it, but they are following the legends of their kind, as it was written over 2500 years ago.

One of the questions I’m asked the most is where do my ideas come from for my books. There are many places. Often when I’m plotting out a new history, I scroll through websites, reading about history and events in different regions. For this particular series, a couple focal points led me to this page I’ve copied below. This is a section copied and pasted from Wikipedia on Armenia. It is where I pulled some of my inspiration for the black jag history.

The native Armenian name for the country is Hayk’. The name in the Middle Ages was extended to Hayastan, by addition of the Iranian suffix -stan (land). The name has traditionally been derived from Hayk (Հայկ), the legendary patriarch of the Armenians and a great-great-grandson of Noah, who according to Moses of Chorene defeated the Babylonian king Bel in 2492 BC, and established his nation in the Ararat region.[13] The further origin of the name is uncertain.

The exonym Armenia is first attested in the Old Persian Behistun inscription (515 BC) as Armina ( ). Ancient Greek Αρμένιοι “Armenians” is attested from about the same time, perhaps the earliest reference being a fragment attributed to Hecataeus of Miletus (476 BC).[14] Herodotus (440 BC) has Ἀρμένιοι δὲ κατά περ Φρύγες ἐσεσάχατο, ἐόντες Φρυγῶν ἄποικοι. “the Armenians were equipped like Phrygians, being Phrygian colonists” (7.73).

Some decades later, Xenophon, a Greek general serving in some of the Persian expeditions, describes many aspects of Armenian village life and hospitality. He relates that the people spoke a language that to his ear sounded like the language of the Persians.[15] According to the histories of both Moses of Chorene and Michael Chamich, Armenia derives from the name of Aram, a lineal descendent of Hayk, son of Harma and father of Ara the Beautiful, who ruled around 900 BC[when?] and became widely acclaimed by the peoples of the region for his exploits.[16][17]
