20 YEARS AGO... PART 2.
Over the years the search for Commander Takoma continued, but as time went on hope of finding him began to fade.
Those who were born with Nightblood were still trained in Polis in accordance with The Commander legacy but now became Clan Commanders known as, Kru Hedas. Those clans who had no Natblidas to lead them, had their fiercest warriors as leaders.
The Capital of Polis still remained a hub for trade and had it's own army under the rule of The Order Of The Flame. The empty throne remained protected should one day the Commander return home.
Under The Treaty of Polis, all guns were outlawed to prevent any recurrence of Azgedas actions. Skaikru decommissioned all of their guns and began to follow a more Grounder way of life. Their children were now raised as warriors, to show strength in this brutal world but to maintain the compassion of their ancestors from the sky.
Time raced by and any information about Commander Takoma grew less and less. Many rumours circulated, some believed he was already dead, others that he had fled from the war. Most was propaganda from the bitter mind of Azgeda's Queen Nia, the daughter of King Theo. She was as ruthless as her father before her, with the same craving for power. It seemed that time had not calmed the tempestuous heart of The Ice Nation.
The truth is no one knew what happened that day in the heat of battle. Commander Takoma was a warrior of The Woods Clan, raised with honour, a firm but fair leader. He was not a man who would simply abandon his people.
As the years rolled on, it seemed less likely any answer would be found, but as history reminds us from time to time, there are some mysteries that refuse to remain hidden. Truth always finds a way and for a girl who's people fell from the stars, it seemed she was destined to be bound to Grounder history and the great legacy of The Commanders.
