The Sons of Kronos are divided into 3 tribes. The Kallach - The Tribe of Dawn is loyal to the One King. The Nuada - The Shadow Tribe has been seduced by the Shadow with the promise of Bile's return, the Ancient Ard-Ree - The High King of darkness. The Iidanach - The Tribe of the Goddess, also known as the Mother Tribe. They laid the 'poisoned blade' firmly at the One Kings feet, for custom has it that no King should reign for more than seven years, before his greatness is given back to the Earth that bore him.
