First Appearance: “Hide ‘N’ Seek

Sam is an energetic six year old boy, and son of Katherine Vesten. The boy has a healthy imagination, curious nature, and a talent for sneaking off in search of adventure. He is also an avid fan of a very popular animated series and toy line, based very loosely on the Reptilia Droc.

When Sam becomes convinced his favorite monsters are skulking around the abandoned warehouse across from his apartment complex, he looks for the first opportunity to investigate. Finally the evening came when Sam caught his napping and got his opportunity.

Species: Human
Class: Beta
Gender: Female
First Appearance: “Hide ‘N’ Seek

Katherine is single mother, living with her six year old son, Sam, in the city of Yuhanas Leh. Working long hours as a waitress in a bustling diner, Katherine can only afford a cramp apartment in one of the poorer sections of the city. She had hoped to at least get a unit facing the beautiful lights and architecture of downtown, but to her chagrin got a view of an abandoned warehouse across the street.

Hardships aside, Katherine had her son, who she loved and would do anything for. Although, Sam could be a handful, and keeping up with him after a long day busing table could be difficult. Especially once the boy got the idea in his head that there were monsters living in the rundown warehouse, despite her best efforts to assure him this was not the case.

Katherine’s quite life was rocked one night when she found herself dozing off early from the day’s work. A short time later, she was violently awaken by a thunderous sound, only to find that her son had snuck out of the house, and the city had suffered some sort of terrorist attack. Now Katherine must find her son, and the most likely place to search is the warehouse Sam believed to be filled with monsters.

Gree Ra’desh

September 25, 2015

Gree Ra’desh, was a Yah’Weian missionary that lived two hundred years before the formation of the Conglomerate States. This turbulent era, known as the Age of Turmoil, saw the decline of interstellar trade and multiple wars between rival worlds, which lead to a great deal of suffering throughout the galaxy.

Gree Ra’desh was well known and praised for his work helping the sick and poor as he traveled between galactic hotspots, spreading the message of Yah’Wei.

The missionary was killed while helping Dorsyan refugees at camp bombed Ziefian rebels. Soon after his death, the Yah’Weian elders declared Gree Ra’desh a saint, who would go on to become a prominent figure in the religion.

In the Conglomerate era, the Gree Ra’desh is still revered by the faithful, but frequently used in vain by less religious beings.

The Conglomerate Age

1 ACF to Current (210 ACF)

The galaxy is starting to unite once more, taking the Wei’Quin’s ideal of developing the land and its resources in the name of profit and progress, twelve titan corporations stepped forward and essentially bought two thirds of the Nexis Galaxy. Privatizing the local governments and public services, replacing politicians with regional directors. Planets sold their independence in exchange for security, food, and guaranteed employment for all citizens. The twelve galactic corporations then established a loose knit truce between one another and became known as the Conglomerate States.

The Wei’Quin Age

July 1, 2015

1500 BCF – 1,000 BCF

New species all around the galaxy are reaching “Hyperdrive” level technology. There are little to no signs left of the Ancient races. The concept has been largely dismissed as myth or been absorbed into local religious doctrine as angels and deities.
In the Core of the galaxy, a central government called the Wei’Quin Empire has been formed. It has a manifesto to unite all the worlds of the Nexis under one rule, one culture, and one language. It proceeds to absorb the surrounding systems through diplomacies and generosity at first, and war if the people resists.
