The Spriggats use to have their own state-nation called Spriggatia. The Spriggat independence was ended when the Shadowling Empire conquered and annexed Spriggatia. As part of the Shadowling society, the Spriggats were treated as an underclass and became resentful of shadowlings for it. This resentment gave birth to a Spriggat rebellion called the Shadowling Civil War. The Spriggat rebels were called the Dissidents by their Shadowling enemy. When the war ended with the Shadowling Queen's death, the Shadowling Republic was formed. This new government was based on Spriggat-Shadowling equality.
