In ancient times it was the popular human belief that The Woulak were creatures that planted the seeds of doubt and insecurity in human beings which led them to make many decisions that led to nasty conflicts which resulted in war, destruction and death. The Woulak creatures had purple skin and blue eyes and they could shapeshift into anything to protect themselves with the many powers they possessed. Many of the most powerful sorcerers chose the dark sorcerer Emelban to capture all of these creatures. Emelban had pursued his task for years as he captured these creatures which had an interesting weakness for green emeralds which made them fall asleep. Emelban had captured the slumbering creatures and later on placed them on a magical treasure chest that could trap any magical creature because of the containment spell that the sorcerer had implemented. Emelban had just killed all of the creatures except one which he had trapped in the magical treasure chest along with a lot of valuable green emeralds. However, the real reason that these creatures attacked humans was that they were first attacked by The North Iron Brigade which started to destroy the home they had in the forests. The humans of The North Iron Brigade were the first to spread lies about the magical creatures stating that they started the conflict.
The sorcerer Emelban had stopped at the house of his assistant Victor who had always been loyal to his master and he had learned a lot from the sorcerer. Just as Emelban and Victor had hidden the magical treasure chest in a secret basement inside Victor's barn a couple of enemy soldiers ambushed the sorcerer when Victor had left to the closest town to do some business errands for the sorcerer. The sorcerer was killed and his home was burned to the ground. However, the barn remained intact and when Victor returned to learn of the horrible fate of his master he decided to hide the magical treasure chest that contained the last Woulak. Throughout the centuries Victor's descendants watched over the magical treasure chest so that the creature would never escape. Unbeknownst to the sorcerer and his loyal servant the creature in the magical treasure chest was a Woulak child whose parents had been murdered by Emelban.
Many centuries had passed and Victor's descendants, which were known as the Glander family prospered in London as they founded and owned the City of London Corporation. The Glander family owned the Highgate Wood which was a 28 hectare (70 acre) area of ancient woodland in North London, lying between East Finchley, Highgate and Muswell Hill. This place was originally part of the ancient Forest of Middlesex which covered much of London, Hertfordshire and Essex and was mentioned in the Domesday Book. It lies in the London Borough of Haringey, and it is owned and managed by the City of London Corporation. The current owners Robert Glander and his wife Irina Glander kept the magical treasure chest locked in a secret panic room where they monitored the entire area. Their son Ethan, who was 12 years of age also knew about the existence of this panic room and knew about the Woulak and the importance of keeping the magical creature locked up.
