Soon after returning to the Tarkan Jungle, Queen Tula began to secretly see her once-husband, Dakan. She feared to do it publicly because many amazons still held hatred for the Sashuri clan. Through her secret ventures, she became pregnant and secretly bore Dakan a second child. However, even with the newfound acceptance of most Sashuri, Queen Tula hid her love for Dakan. She feared that an uprising would form if the public were to learn of her pregnancy and full-out acceptance of a Sashuri warrior. She gave Dakan their infant child (Kyurai) to raise as a Sashuri.
It was around that time that out of sport, a Sashuri warrior challenged an Amazon healer to a public battle. If he won, she would have to accept his marriage proposal. If she won he would become her permanent kitchen slave. The battle was announced as a public event and brought many Amazons and Sashuri together for the first time. The Amazon healer lost the battle (many think it was purposeful), and married the Sashuri warrior. For fear of causing uproar, the couple volunteered to leave the borders of both clans and live in the outskirts of the Jungle. Traveling into the villages only for supplies and visits. They also agreed to protect the secrecy of the ancient powers and drive away any outside intruders. As a thank you Queen Tula and Dakan, who was now leader of the Sashuri, agreed to allow the children of the couple to train as a warrior until they were ready to venture out into the world.
These marriage battles soon became tradition and many villagers left the clans and sent their children to train as an Amazon or Sashuri. The traditions of each clan were upheld for years, and the Tarkan Jungle seemed to finally be on it way back to peaceful times.
However, the legend of the Amazons power had spread to many foreign countries. It was then that England began to pillage the Tarkan Jungle looking for a mystical jewel that is said to give it’s possessor power over the elements.
Outraged by the destruction of her homeland, Queen Tula ordered that all Amazon women and the Sashuri allies launch a full on attack against the British forces. However, there were many Sashuri who had lost their power as a result of living on the outskirts of the Amazon borders. They refused to help the Amazons and some even joined the British forces.
One day, a man by the name of Sir Alfred Crestmere (Sir Allen’s father) was determined to destroy the entire Tarkan Jungle, looking for the sacred jewel. Queen Tula sent many messengers to attempt to level with Sir Crestmere, arguing that no such jewel existed. They had simply inherited their power from the Gods and the land that they served. The English did not believe that such primitive belief in Gods would grant any human power. They continued to destroy the forest, forcing the Amazons to decrease their borders.
After a final warning to the English forces, Queen Tula launched an attack, and started a series of battles that would be come to be known as the “Great War.” It was during this war that Queen Tula came face to face with Sir Alfred Crestmere. They battled for hours, when eventually Sir Alfred stabbed Queen Tula in the gut. As a final wish, she prayed to the Gods that her daughter, Ashra, and the Amazon people would be protected forever. Satisfied that the Gods heard her prayer, Queen Tula unleashed a massive wave of energy and sacrificed herself to send the British forces back. The English army was destroyed and many died from the impact, including Sir Alfred.
Devastated by the news off the death of the Queen, Dakan killed himself.
This brings us to the present. Princess Ashra has been made Queen by default. The Amazon people have begun to rebuild their society hoping that they are rid of the English forces. However, there have been sightings of foreign intruders and spies. And now a new enemy, known as the Americans, have heard of the legend of the Amazons, hoping to find the source of their power.
