Nothing is for sure. But this is a vague idea I have had for explaining the creation of "The Brim"(name open for discussion). Let me know if you have any ideas to rework or tweak what I already have. Apologies for the lack of grammer, big words, and logic. ill leave parenthesis around questions i need to create answers for. Thank you guys very much in advance for your help.
theres a Sculptor(name suggestions)
the Sculptor is banished (why was he/she banished?)
the banished Sculptor becomes nomadic creating statues around the world.
the Sculptor gets lonely or crazy, and creates clay statues of a small race to keep him/her company. (why do the statues look different than Sculptor?)
a Dragon plops by(name suggestions)
Dragon admires the statues (why?)
Dragon breathes life into the statues creating The Brim. (is he taking pity on Sculptor? or just for fun.)
some evil plot with an invasion (who?)
Dragon and Sculptor stay behind to hold off enemy so their creations can escape
The Brim are attracted to a Volcano
The Brim ask the Volcano permission to live there (how does it give them a yes without literally speaking)
Dragon and Sculptor are never seen again. (possible plot twists).
