Mykonos has been the home of the majority of the shifter population of the world since the Cataclysm. The island is primarily of a slate substance and composed of many mountainous areas and cliffs. There is not much land for agriculture and what there is is highly prized by the natives. This lack of farm land was the initial reason behind the clans wars that had seized the island.
In the days before The World Navy, pirate raids commonly plagued the island. After toppling the more powerful shifter clans, the pirates subjugated the rest of the population, exploiting them in all manner of illicit ways. After the Navy had established itself, it launched a massive strike against the pirates, all but destroying them. Witnessing the power of their saviors, the remaining population swore fealty to the Navy and helped established the maximum security prison now known as Craigus.
