The city's origins Cuna De Rios finds its origins in the first half of the 19th century, during an era of mammalian and reptilian discoveries of uncharted territories of the northen central continent; unlike other caravans who treated the discovery almost as a competition, the expeditions of young agricultural and urban engineer Pantherum De Felinis, and the one of Virak'kara, matriarch of the spirit warriors tribe of Hibis'qis (who will later become the two city founders) had as mission friendly collaboration and territorial symbiosis.
Once temporarily stationed in the desertic area of Chanticoya, the group acknowledges their daily struggles with the harsh habitat, whose substantial lack of water hinders their attempts at cultivation and farming: Hibis'qis' survival knowledge and skills protected everyone from hazards, though it was only a temporary solution and the expedition feared the place wasn't inhabitable at all.
With a further expedition at north, a group of hydraulic engineers, cartographers and builders chosen by both Virak'kara and Pantherum among their men managed to discover a huge river (later named GrandScale) that could be split in its flow to create two smaller tributaries directed towards Chanticoya. Months of their conjoined efforts of agricultural and technological knowledges turned the desertic ground into ferile and cultivable soil, allowing both groups to establish themselves in the now flourishing and easily inhabitable Chanticoya territory, obviously big enough to host everyone.
The two groups collaborated into further developing the territory, each with their own typical lifestyles, that quickly became an established village, then city and finally metropolis as centuries went on. Virak'kara, who became a founder of the new land along with Pantherum, named their village Cuna De Rios, which means Cradle of Rivers.

Today, the three mega-districts of Cuna De Rios show specific and discernible enviroinments thanks to their personal development: the west-side is characterized by architectures rich with mystic and magic flavour and close to nature lifestyles; the east-most part of town has always shown affinity to technological progress and as such it hosts modern buildings and headquarters of scientific research; the central part of the metropolis, situated between the two rivers, is the beating heart of Cuna, a real mix of the two realities with a urban jungle style.

The city's map The three districts are named, from west to east: Grinoir, Palmshade, and Gearshine. The two rivers have kept their original tributary names, Primero and Segundo.
