Draenei
The Draenei
are a truly ancient race created by the Titan God Malekor long before his fall to Chaos. The Draenei were created and lived for centuries on the Moon of Earth where they were meant to protect the moon from threats that might hinder the ability of the Earth to grow as the Old Ones desired. The Draenei were split into two factions with the main section living on the moon itself called the Eradar, and those living on the Exodar called the Man'Ari. In this way the Draenei were led by three men of which two were Eredar, and the third was of the Man'Ari, and it was in this way that the two leaders of the Eredar were corrupted by Malekor, and the failure to corupt the Man'Ari led to the splitting of the Draenei and the eventual near destruction of both the Eredar, and the Man'Ari.

The Draenei were created by Malekor in the goal of maintaining his role as the keeper of the Moon, and in this way the Draenei were based around the massive fortress ship of the Exodar of which circled the massive satelite of the Earth. For centuries they lived in peace, and the Draenei came to form the Founding Races of the Earth and built themselves a kingdom on the moon of which was truly magnificant to behold. In this beauty they were led directly by Malekor of whom adopted three leaders to adhere to his laws and make sure that the Draenei were following his wishes. Malekor didn't enjoy the mechanics and metel of the Exodar and for this reason spent much more time with the Eredar meaning his influence over them was much greater then over the Man'Ari. When Malekor fell to Chaos the Draenei would be approached by him, and the Eredar would quickly fall into line behind him, but before Malekor could approach Valen the leader of the Draenei he was visited by a vision which saw the world burn if he followed Malekor. Seeing the truth behind Malekor Valen attempted to sway his two brothers into resisting Malekor but he couldn't persuade them and in fact they attempted to capture him, but were unable to stop him from reaching the Exodar. Fearing destruction the Man'Ari would be saved by the intervention of Naaru of whom was a Titan. Naaru would lead the Draenei on the Exodas to the Earth where they would crash land on the island chain of Azuremyst Isles. On this island chain they would build an empire around the ruins of their ancient ship, and during this time they became heavily influenced by the world around them. Having never seen the world outside the moon, and the Exodar they were influenced heavily by the trip of a group that is now known as the Hands of Argus. The Hands of Argus would travel to Nerekhara on the command of Naaru and while there would assist Jesus in his rise, and along the way become believers in christianity of which they called the Holy Light. Returning to Exodar they would spread the religion quickly to the point that even the leader in Valen soon fell into Christianity.

History

Early History

Valen
Malekor was the god of the moon. He had one of the most important jobs left behind for the titans. He protected the only means of the denizens of the planet getting assistance from the Old Ones. He guarded the Portal that led directly to the Old Ones fleet.

The Draenei were created by Malekor in the goal of maintaining his role as the God of the Moon, and in this way the Draenei were based around the massive fortress ship of the Exodar of which circled the massive satelite of the Earth. The Exodar was designed with massive defensive capabilites which the Old Ones had hoped would allow the Draenei to defend the planet from any attacker, but its main purpose was as a center of science from which the Old Ones could continue to keep tabs on the goings on of Earth. In this way the Draenei were the safegaurds of the assistence of the Old Ones, and for this reason they were vastly important to the plans on Earth. While a large number of Draenei were on the Exodar their main numbers were located on Luna where they were the most powerful nation there lordering over Luna and the guardians of the two warp portals there. The moon had been seeded with atmosophere and had come to be known as Luna after the wife of Malekor. The Draenei formed the backbone of what the Old Ones meant to be the protective force for the planet, and they had a simple means of reaching the planet through the Dark Portal, of which allowed access to the Earth through a portal located in Luna. For centuries the two sides lived in peace, and the Draenei came to form the Founding Races of the Earth and built themselves a kingdom on Luna of which was truly magnificant to behold. In this beauty they were led directly by Malekor of whom adopted three leaders to adhere to his laws and make sure that the Draenei were following his wishes. Malekor didn't enjoy the mechanics and metel of the Exodar and for this reason spent much more time with the Draenei on Luna meaning his influence over them was much greater then over the Draenei on the Exodar.

Luna War of Conquest

Main Article : Luna War of Conquest

The Luna War of Conquest
The Fall of Malekor led to the first war that the post Old One creation would come to know. The consequences of this war are almost unimagenable, and the truth is that some of them are beyond imagining for those who want peace. Gods fell. Two planets burned. Entire species were nearly wiped. All of this and yet who the hell on this planet would even believe me if I told them people lived on the moon?
Archimonde
I have seen the truth of what you say. You are lieing. You lead us not into paradise. You would lead us to hell.
Valen

Everything went according to plan for the Draenei, and in the days preceding the corruption of Malekor the moon of Luna was in a state of true peace as the different nations of Luna all worked to their purpose of living in harmony and defending the warp portals of Luna. When Malekor fell to the words of Tzeenech the Draenei leadership would be the first approached by him, and Draenei leadership on Luna would quickly fall into line behind him, but before Malekor could approach Valen the leader of the Draenei on the Exodar it was Valen that was visited by a vision which saw the world burn if he followed Malekor. This vision had been sent to him by Malekors wife Luna of whom having fled Luna following the corruption of Malekor had sent the message in an attempt to defeat Malekor as she was unwilling to yet turn against him by speaking of him to the Titan Council. Thus when Malekor approached Valen he resisted and Valen would use the powers of the Exodar to almost destroy the Chaos God but Malekor was able to escape his wrath and caused damage to the Exodar as he fled for his life. Following this fight on the Exodar it was Valen that made his way to see his two brothers who he did not know had already fallen to Malekor. Seeing the truth behind Malekor Valen attempted to sway his two brothers into resisting Malekor but he couldn't persuade them and in fact they attempted to capture him, but were unable to stop him from escaping Antorus and using Magi to escape to the Exodar.

The Resistence

Main Article : Naaru

Naaru

Malekor's fall had been first noticed by his wife Luna and she had failed in her first attempt to stop him when she let Valen learn the truth, and thus on her second attempt to stop him she would involve Malekor's only sibling in the form of Naaru of whom was a Titan created by the Old Ones in a different manner then everyone else. While most harbored some kind of humanoid appearance or at least along those lines the Titan Naaru and his race the Sha'Tar are made of a glass like substance and are completely different then everything else leaving Naaru completely unable to be corrupted. Naaru would visit Valen alongside Luna and together they discussed their best pathway forward with Naaru and Luna suggesting they immediately move to Charon to gain the support of Eywa, but for his part Valen by this point had not quite given up hope that his brothers would find reason among the madness they were invested in at the moment, and thus he refused at first, but silently prepared the ship to leave the orbit of the moon. While Naaru and Luna waited on the Exodar it was Valen that set up a meeting with Archimonde, and Kil'Jaeden where he hoped to try one last time to get them to turn away from the rigors of Malekor. Unknown to Valen was the fact that Malekor foresaw this and moved in on the two Eredar to make sure they were as loyal to him as they possibly could.

Attack on Charon

Main Article : Invasion of Charon

Eywa would lead the defences of Charon when the forces of the Draenei led by Malekor attacked Charon and despite being horribly outnumbered she was able to effectively resist them and deny the forces of Malekor access to the towers leading to the Battle of World Tree.

The Exodar Flees

Naaru would lead the Draenei on the Exodar to the Earth where they would crash land on the island chain of Azuremyst Isles. On this island chain they would build an empire around the ruins of their ancient ship, and during this time they became heavily influenced by the world around them.


Christianity

Having never seen the world outside the moon, and the Exodar they were influenced heavily by the trip of a group that is now known as the Hands of Argus. The Hands of Argus would travel to Nerekhara on the command of Naaru and while there would assist Jesus in his rise, and along the way become believers in christianity of which they called the Holy Light. Returning to Exodar they would spread the religion quickly to the point that even the leader in Valen soon fell into Christianity.
