Hey all I am doing some research for the book I am writing and hope someone can help me asap. I would like to base my storyline on actual myth or prophecy and have been searching google like a maniac for what I have in mind. I am aiming towards a myth involving 12 chosen guardians to serve as protectors of the human race: In the story there are two families with different advanced abilities. One group have advanced abilities like intuition etc, and the other family has the ability to transform their shape. They have been feuding for decades, but actually it is a different group that is responsible for the feud.... and they have a new leader that is the most dangerous and hateful one yet. The abilities of these groups are passed on from generation to generation - at the death of the oldest "chosen ones" then new chosen ones are assigned to undergo training of these new abilities. It would actually be way cool if there was actually such a myth or ancient prophecy. Does anyone out there no of one like it, or should I just make one up? I also kinda need advice on how to think up a name for this book. Anyone?
