As of the beginning of Ginkus' adventure, the Crodin had taken over much of the Zorelta's continent, with the Capital City being the only remaining holdout for the Zorelta. Finally, they moved in on the capital, and the once-mighty Ginkus was forced to escape as the capital building was seized. He was captured anyway, and locked away. Ginkus returned to the capital building, however, and sealed it off in a stasis field with himself inside. The Crodin, nonetheless, had taken over. (Ginkus' Odyssey: "The Last of the Zorelta")
Over the next thousand years, the Crodin solidified their reign. As they couldn't access the old capital, and couldn't destroy it, they couldn't allow it to remain the tallest and most imposing building, for symbolic reasons. As such, they built their own capital building nearby, which was greatly taller and more impressive than the first. They were cruel to their Zoreltan citizens, even torturing them. Chanai Du Ðux was one such Zoreltan subject. (Squids in Forests Series: "The Ancient Secret Under Shri")
Modern Encounters Edit
Ari met a crashed ship full of Crodin soldiers, with whom he had to work to survive. The Mysterious Statue was attacking their ship, and he, Cassie, and his two little statues helped defend the ship. Nonetheless, the Crodin were intolerant of Ari's unauthorized technology and suspicious of him, as he didn't seem to have ID as a Crodin citizen. (Squids in Forests: "Fried Calamari")
Balzak's Fleet first encountered the Crodin when they approached Shri, and discovered the planet was guarded by a Crodin fleet who immediately attacked them. Once they had dispatched the fleet, Balzak Globotron, Matak Rho' Shivej, and Chanai Du Ðux landed near the old capital and began exploring. In a building nearby, they encountered Zoovac, who had served the Crodin as a torturer for the past thousand years. They de-activated and captured the clown-on-a-stick, with the intention of reprogramming him. (Balzak Globotron: "Balzak Globotron")
