Early in the God Era Bahamut and his maker Bruh Kreniik, worked together, creating the Kriistvrii (Standing Scale) race. They were needed in great numbers, and fast, to meet the demon invasions of the Demon Spawn War (8972 GE - 9493 GE).
The last great action by Bahamut's Kriistvrii forces, the Sed Uth, happened in the First Dragon Wake (9251 GE - 9269 GE). After war's end in 9269 GE, Bahamut departed the world Bal-Kriav. He did this in preparation for his rise to godhood; leaving the mortal realms for the holy worlds of the Nawenglorûs system. Bahamut's creations, the Kriistvrii, were left to make it on their own.
Kriistvrii civilization took hold in sector Hiznaar Goz of the Aerie of Dragons. The Covenant fortresses and supply depots of the Hoof Front became the heart of Kriistvrii civilization. Civil governments were still in place from their days under Covenant leadership. In early days, they had some problems electing officials. This came from a desire of die-hards to continue the fight against evil. Of the crusader mindset, all they knew was war, and generally believed their prestige and honor came from it. As a result, their first four centuries of being on their own was under a stratocracy, with the city Diiv Revakaad their center of influence.
On Bal-Kriav, Kriistvrii civilization peaked in the latter half of the Horgon Era. The two Kriistvrii empires of that period were the Zeymah'kein and its smaller offshoot Galirkrad. These two nations worshiped opposing dragon gods, one under Bahamut and the latter following the dictum of Tiamat. The roots of this split go way back. Some believed that Bahamut didn't treat them as equals to the likes of his other creations, or those that served under him in the Demon Spawn War. They give evidence of this with Bahamut's first mortal followers being ex-soldiers of the Nonvul Viing, then a decade later, the Khage, and then in 9370 GE, nearly a century later, proselytizers approached the people of Diiv Revakaad looking to spread the gospel of Bahamut.
In The Burns, Zeymah'kein and Mir'piamauza waged brutal and genocidal wars with each other. When Zeymah'kein fell, the Kriistvrii splintered into petty city-states. Today, most Kriistvrii are from the Aerie of Dragons, in empires like Ag Envok, Lahvirn Piiv, and Lum Trumgol Mir.
