Mouse Squad 1163
There are tales of an old empire that stretched over all of the Territories, stretching to lands mice have never visited. Although wolves and bears were still prevalent in those days, they were kept at bay by a series of feudal lords, with power and resources enough to fight the the hulking predators. These Badger Lords were mostly benevolent, though inscrutable, and their wishes and policies were transmitted through a eunuch caste of mice. These eunuches were given as tribute from the communities as infants, and spent their entire lives in the Lord’s presence.
Today, most badgers encountered by mice are feral, wild beyond even other predators. No one knows what befell the empire of Badgers, though there are rumors of outposts left in the east, far into the Wild Country. There are, however, remnants of the badgers’ dominions, walls erected in certain parts of the Territories, and roads older than the rest.
