Dragons and Scorpions Rivalry

factions

A long time ago, before the zombies attacked and the Scorpion racers came together, lived many racing crews. These early days of racing were dominated by a few select crews- the Dragons, the Panthers, and the Tigers. The Tigers’ strength was in their ability to build extremely fast cars that could cut through the air at such a speed, they could barely be heard. While this speed was a great offensive strategy, they often lacked a critical defensive tactic, firepower. While the Panthers were just the opposite, creating the best firepower they could muster, with their elite scientists, yet lacking with their speed. The Dragons, however, prided themselves on their ability to both build fast cars and make strong weapons. Over time, this allowed the Dragons to become the strongest crew on the streets.

However, during their rise to the top, internal trouble arose. The Dragons were led by their fearless leader Torch. Under Torch, the Dragons strictly held to their most absolute law- no Dragon can celebrate after a win. This rule embodied the Dragon mindset; they believe that there was no need to celebrate each win because they had won many times before and only saw victory in their future. This firm belief was just one of the things that set the Dragons apart from other racing crews.

However, Sting, a young rising star within the Dragons, refused to hold to this standard. He believed that each win was a display of hard work and desire to win and that celebrating was a way of showing passion for the sport of racing. Torch believed that if Sting was allowed to remain a Dragon, he would corrupt the other members and cause the Dragons to lose respect in the eyes of other racing crews. After Torch confronted Sting and he refused to change his ways, Torch was forced to dismiss Sting from the Dragons.

As a result, Sting was compelled to rise up and bring a new power to the tracks. From here, the Scorpions were born. The Scorpions soon became a top-tiered racing force and were the rising competitors for the Dragons. Eventually, as Scorpions and Dragons dominated the raceway, the other teams had moved on and left this ancient rival to continue their feud in ‘The Circuit’. Each side is always looking for new recruits, to join the ranks, and to help win the ultimate battle.
