Unbeknownst to the humans, however, the red forms of the Star Crystals were corrupting and destructive. One-by-one, the Great Kingdoms fell, succumbing to the great powers of the blood-colored crystals. These rulers, once the defenders of humanity, became the very darkness that they were trying to prevent. Consuming the raw energy from the red gems the kings and queens warped into colossal titans, the Ancients. Physical manifestations of evil, twisted and malformed, the Ancients grew endlessly with each crystal collected. Hungry for power, their red armies wandered the world of Illyria, destroying all they once protected. . 5,669 Followers, 13 Following, 385 Posts - See Instagram photos and videos from Guardian Kingdoms (@guardiankingdoms).
