Forgotten are a race of snake-like people.
Forogtten are a very ancient race, they were placed in Tyria a long time ago by the Six Gods. Their purpose of creation was to guide other races and originally resided all around Tyria. At an unknown date of time the forgotten were in a war with the charr on the border of what would later be called Ascalon, near Blazeridge Mountains. These creatures aided the Five Gods war against Abaddon and they acted as wardens to the defeated god in the Realm of Torment. The warden duty continued till the event of Nightfall.
When humans appeared in Tyria and began to become a superior race, the forgotten retreated to the Crystal Desert. In the Crystal Desert they now serve a dragon named Glint, during this time is when the snake-like race was long forgotten, hence the name. Alongside the dragon named Glint the forgotten act as teseters to a trial based on Ascension. This posed as a threat to all who wish to become an Ascended. When the turai ossa and elonians ventured within the Crystal Desert landscape, they immediately attacked the forgotten thinking them to be mindless beasts. The aftermath of this event wiped out the invadering forces by both the forgotten's retaliation and internal strife.
