The second world is the world for a story called The Crimson Sea its a world where Harpies and Mermaids are locked in war for survival they are the last beings on the world that they know of until a Siren, and Human appear from a oasis cavern after being secluded from the outside world for a long time.
In a world half consumed by water, and the other half consumed by land a war between two races breaks out . The Harpy half human an ancient race lost millennium ago in a war for survival. The Harpy is also half avian, or bird; the Harpy has a Human body with wings, and a tail; they also have razor sharp talons, and teeth. The Mermaid was also half human, but unlike the Harpy their other half was Pisces, or fish; the Mermaid has a Human body from the waist up, they also have a fish's tail, and razor sharp claws and teeth. These two races are in a war for survival, They kill each other, and consume their flesh to keep themselves from starving. There are only two choices of food for these carnivorous predators; the other race, or becoming cannibals and feasting on their own race.
Mermaids reign over half the world covered in water, they are the rulers of its domain. In the shallow water there lie spikes of coral just beneath the surface, they are unable to be seen from above. The Mermaids use these to lure their prey near them either making them self impale themselves, or impale their prey through combat. There are also deep abysses that Mermaids used to drown their prey, in these abysses there are caverns where the Mermaids live with their pods. The Mermaids control the element of water, they have implemented this into a variety of uses, to help their survival.
Harpies rule over the other half of the world covered in land, they are the masters of the sky and owner of the land. Mountains of spikes in various sizes, make up the land of this world. Spikes that tower over the surface of the water are used as Harpy nests, and watch towers. Other spikes rest feet above the surface of the water, which the Harpies use to impale their prey on. The Harpies control the element of air, they have implemented this into a variety of uses, to aid them in the war.
After each skirmish between the two races the blood spilt would drain out of the injured, and the killed down into the sea. The once tranquil blue sea, and silky white feathers of the Harpies, and white hair of the Mermaids has since turned crimson. The crimson blood would continue to be spilt with no end in sight. All hope ceased to exist, the two Races gave up what little humanity they had long ago, all that was left was the hollow shell of savages. They had no hopes, no dreams; all they cared about was surviving as long as possible. How long until they decide to resort to cannibalism to survive. The races have grown more savage with each passing day, and more desperate with each passing night. The light of hope was was dwindling in the darkness, pure desperation filled this world.
In an isolated location, a place thought destroyed long ago was a young Harpy man, and a young Mermaid woman. Through complete isolation they managed to find each other and fall in love. If it was anywhere else in the world the circumstances would of been different, and they would of been mortal enemies fated to fight, and consume each other in order to survive.
this isolated location was a cavern in the earth that was swallowed up, and cut off from the rest of the world for hundreds of years. It was a tropical oasis in the middle of a barren post apocalyptic world; it had water, soil, air, plants, and even small animals of multiple variety. Everything contained within the confines of the oasis walls adapted in order to survive, until it finally became an oasis.
As the two grew older they had twins, one child was half Harpy, and half Mermaid; the other child was completely Human. The Human child was born small and fragile requiring constant attention and affection. While the Siren child was contained within an egg where it would continue to grow with all of its needs inside the egg. The only thing the egg needed was warmth, and time to hatch. As time passed the parents grew old, and along with them so did the human child, and his Siren twin brother. The older his parents got the more he had to take care of his still unhatched brother. The twins were 15 years old when his parents finally passed away, and the human child was left all alone to take care of his still unhatched brother.
He cared for his brother kept his egg safe, and warm just waiting for his brother to break out of the imprisonment that is the egg. The two brothers grew up together though they were so different, they were also very similar. Even though the child didn't hatch yet, ever sense his brother was born he has been able to sense everything going on around him. So even though they can't talk to each other, they still have an unbreakable bond already formed; all's that is left is waiting for when he hatches.
Twenty years have passed by since they first were arrived inside the oasis, and finally the Siren child hatches. Both being 20 years old now stand before each other, looking in to each others eyes, not a single word is exchanged they stand before each other silently. In that moment they remembered a conversation their parents had while they were still inside their mothers womb. It was then they understood their purpose, they knew what it was they had to do. The Human child opened a hole straight up to the surface using his earth magic, and climbed on top of his Siren brothers back. Using his air magic he takes off straight up to the surface, the Human child uses his fire magic to melt the earth to cover the hole, and the Siren child uses his water magic to quickly cool it. The silently tell each other "that should contain the life inside the oasis until its needed, now to finish what our parents couldn't"
