The Annukis are intelligent beings and well known for their speed and invincibility on the battlefield. They worship their King and his safety is the populace's main priority.
During the great war they built the Apedemak. The arena where only the best of the best can entertain the King and only champions are given the opportunity to protect the King in future battles.
The oppressive era is now over, leaving the arena as little more than a total shambles.
Nevertheless, there are still games done there today to amuse the audience.
