History

Overview

Flag of Scotland

Scotland (Alba), officially the Kingdom of Scotland is a country that is part of the United Kingdom. It is located on the island of Great Britain. In addition to the mainland, the country is made up of island and the Northern Isles and the Hebrides. The capital city is Edinburgh, while it's largest city is Glasgow.

Ancient History

At least 1,000 years before the Great Cataclysm, the general landmass that became Scotland was ruled by Shuma-Gorath until he was banished by Crom. The people he ruled could not have been the ancestors of the Scottish, however, as they are descended from the Atlanteans, who did migrate to the area until thousands of years later.[citation needed]

Scotland was early on inhabited by the Picts, about whom much has been revealed. The Picts existed as a culture as early 18,000 BCE. By 18,500 BCE they already worshipped Jhebbal Sag. Many Picts were killed by the Great Cataclysm, though they remained a prominent presence during the Hyborian Age. The Pictish leader Bran Mak Morn resisted Roman incursion, once with the help of a time-travelling Kull. Notable Picts include Brule the Spear-Slayer, Shooz Ding and Zhogar Sag.[citation needed]

Later Scotland would be inhabited by the Gaels, the descendants of the Cimmerians and through them the Atlanteans. Around 3000 CE the Sea Eagle tribe began a series of human sacrifices for immortality.[citation needed]

The king Robert the Bruce would encounter the time-travelling New Mutants at one point.[citation needed]

In 1692, a man named Ian Og was murdered by the Scottish monarch. He would return as the mystical Clansman possessing others through his sword.[citation needed]

20th Century

Rahne Sinclair was born in north highlands of Ullapool in Scotland and was delivered by Dr. Moira MacTaggert, who happened to live locally. Rahne's mother, a local prostitute[1], she would never know as she would die in childbirth the night she was born. Her father was the local Presbyterian minister, Reverend Craig, who raised Rahne as an orphan without revealing that he was her father from an illicit relationship. Reverend Craig's treatment of Rahne during her first fourteen years was harsh, instilling a strict religious and moral code into her from a young age to compensate for his own lapse in character which led to her conception.[2] When Rahne first developed her mutant power of lycanthropy, she was mistaken for a werewolf. A group of terrified, religious locals believed that she had been possessed by the devil. Led by Reverend Craig, they chased Rahne across the Scottish highlands. At the end of the chase, Rahne fell unconscious and reverted to her naked human form at the feet of Dr. MacTaggert, who saved her from the mob. Doctor MacTaggert became a surrogate mother to the young mutant and took her under her protection.[2]
