Crodères - The sons of the rocks

CrodèresThe Crodères had hearts of stone. They were men, with beards and long hair, but one thing was missing: they were unable to feel joy or sorrow, pain or happiness. For their heart was made of stone. Their queen’s name was Tanna.
While on one hand they never deliberately harmed human beings, on the other they never helped anyone.

They rested only once a year, on the “day of calm”; that day, no stone or avalanche fell from the rocky peaks. That was the only day of the year for man; the rest of the time.
Quite a few people had thought of deceiving nature in a crazy way, building houses and erecting walls right up to the highest peaks. The Crodères watched this with their stony gaze for some time, but one day they rebelled against it: thousands of rocks rolled down to the valley and, with primeval strength, enormous avalanches poured over the woods and houses, scattering death and ruin.
