Thousands of years ago, when Vietnamese people started to build their country, the south invader came to the country. At that time, the Jade Emperor sent Mother Dragon and her Child Dragons to help Vietnamese people fight the invader from the South. After the invaders were expelled, the Mother Dragon and Child Dragons did not return to the fairyland but stayed on the Earth.
