If you go into the record halls and libraries of Equestria you will a footnote of history that has been made so obscure that anypony who isn't specifically looking for it could very easily pass it by. The northern incident is what the scholars have come to call it. It was a war between Griffons and Ponies over the northern border of the two nations, but aside from that and scant few other facts there is very little on record about it. This information blackout is what drove a young pegasus mare deep into the wilds of foreign lands to find the truth about what really happened. There she found perhaps the only pony in the entire world who could finally show her the full truth about what happened in the war that history tried so hard to forget.
