<DIV>Information borrowed from official EQ2 Prima strategy Guide-Lots of spoilers</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>-The Ratonga's real name are the Roekillik.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>-They were created by Brell and lived in the Underfoot and lived in the lowest depths. </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>-The current Roekillik are the 2nd generation of them. The originals marched on the Underfoot so Brell locked them away in the deepest vaults of the Underfoot.  The original's had incredible psychic powers and much larger teeth and claws, and used this to dominate the Underfoot. They were led by the great mage N'Gurai.  Brell decided his creations were too powerful and locked them away.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>-Brell tried again and created the current ratonga, less intelligent, with less powers and smaller claws and teeth. However, he had Bristlebane assist him to give them a spot of mirth, which gave the current Ratonga rogue like qualities.  These Ratonga made their way into the upper underfoot and adopted the name Adventurers gave them for their appearence-Ratonga. They made their way to the surface to escape the Tier'Dals queen domination of the Underfoot.  That's right, The Tier'dal moved from Neriak to the Underfoot on purpose, closing Neriak on purpose. See other topic.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>-Most Ratonga have a strange series of circles with unaligned gaps tattooed on their chest. Reason why is unknown.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>-The original Roekillik have escaped the vaults of the Underfoot due to the shattering breaking the seal. N'Gurai still lives and have brought them to the ancient Dark Elf Fortress of Anetiff.  The Roekillik have begun a genocide of the 2nd generation of Ratonga and plan to kill all of them, one by one.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>There you have it.</DIV>

The pattern reminds me very much of an old labrynth pattern seen in celtic lore. Which makes sence, thinking about it. Making the way out of the underfood must have been like traversing a great maze. http://www.labyrinthsociety.org/assets/images/ceremonial_S.jpgsomething like this, but simpler.
