1. The Egg
Once upon a time, a long time ago, there was a big lightening storm, the biggest one of all! Then a stroke of lightening hit right in the middle of dragon land.* There, an egg was made. A dragon egg. Meanwhile, a male and female dragon found the egg and adopted it. The dragons were both Nightmares so they expected the dragon to be a Nightmare, too. But they were wrong. The dragon hatched from its egg and it turned out to be the legendary Poisondart dragon. These were said to be the most powerful of all dragons. That night when they put him to bed he got into a position that no other dragon could get into. The parents saw this and named him Zoku. Zoku, in dragonese, means "Mighty Warrior."
*Dragon land was an island that nobody could map. All the dragons lived there.
2. Growing Up
The next day, Zoku was nine years old. The mother and father Nightmares said, "Today we're going to teach you..."
"How to fly?" said Zoku.
"Um, yes," the parents said. They took him to the top of a mountain. Then they said, "The first thing you need to do is..."
But Zoku was already flying without any instruction. Then when he landed he said, "Can we practice fire now?" When they got to the fire place, the father dragon said, "Let me guess. You already know how to breathe fire."
"Yes, sir!" answered a very excited Zoku. After those two words were said, robotic laser dragons sprung up and started firing. Zoku dodged the shots and burned them to smithereens. The two Nightmares just stood there, their jaws dropping to the ground.
3. How Poison Killed His Loved Ones
The next day, Zoku was a teen. His parents automatically took him to poison class without telling him. They didn't need to tell him because he already knew he was going there. He had live bait to poison. Rodents. There were merely one million of them and Zoku poisoned all of them from head to toe. Because the parents were so impressed, they showed Zoku the different species of dragons in person. That very night, Zoku killed both his father and mother with his tail poison while rolling over.
4. The War
The next day after Zoku found out that his parents were dead, there was a war. The eastern tribe of dragon's king declared war on the island so he could rule. Zoku fought and was captured. He did all the servant's work. He was lashed, too, by the king himself. He got no food to eat there so he almost starved.
5. The Escape
That night the moon was a full moon that shone brightly. And somehow Zoku absorbed it through his skin. He absorbed so much light that the moon disappeared. Then the whole jail was filled with light as Zoku rose from his cell. He flew away and cursed the eastern dragons.
