The islands to the south of the Wylden Plateau became a perfect breeding ground for the Shyft. Able to fly there on winged horses, the Shyft took residence in the ancient, broken temples and structures littering the tropical island, and the Matriarch of the tribe set about the task of creating an army that would one day cover the Land in a tide of blood. While Kastali was part of a band that attacked the Shyft Isles, and succeeded in her mission, the rest of her warband was slaughtered by the angry Shyft warriors.
