Khula lives with a small community of Axolotl in a small forest pond. Its a simple quiet life except for the strange rumbles of the distant volcano and common earthquakes. The community lives in fear of those dangers and the vengeful gods that use them to torment all mortal life. Their lives are filled with countless ceremonies and rituals meant to please these angry gods.
One day a massive earthquake splits the earth beneath their pond and the water and all the Axolotl are sucked down into the fiery depths. Khula was spared because she was daydreaming near the edge of the pond and held onto a rock. She began to panic as the loneliness and the weigh of the waterless void pressed in all around her... eventually darkness consumes her. She awakes to find that her body has changed and that she can breath the thin air. Thunder echoes across the sky like a bellow of taunting laughter and lighting outlines the shape of the distant volcano and the home of the gods. Khula decides to travel to that mountain in order to give the gods a piece of her mind and to kick them off their holy mountain. She begins dragging herself towards the distant mountain .
They are a type of salamander that normally live their entire lives underwater but if their living conditions change their bodies go through a strange transformation that allows then to breath air and walk on land. Young Axolotls have an amazingly cute face with a giant head and tiny little eyes spaced wide apart.
