Eons ago, the life-force present in all living things had existed in its purest form: Ocorah. This life-force flowed through the Oblivion, and gave birth to the Aethersphere. Within the Aethersphere Arcanae, realm-builders, were born. Over the millennia as the Arcanae built their realms, the Ocorah within the Aethersphere started to dry out. The Arcanae became the only true source of pure life-force, and could sustain the entire realm as long as they remained in it. But the Arcanae were not the only beings created within the Aethersphere.
From the dwindling streams of Ocorah left, a special race of people were born. Skyre (Aetherborne) were pioneers of technology and civilization within the Aethersphere. They settled on the realms of the Arcanae, and proceeded to build cities and town for themselves. Between the shifting fringes of the Aethersphere and the Oblivion, another race of people were created. Sakir (Etherborne) have been the bane of Skyrean civilization for many centuries. Sakir are nomads, and travel from one realm to the next, exploring and gathering resources from each realm as they go.
Since Skyreans have settled into most of the realms, resources have become nearly inaccessible for Sakir. To make things worse elite Skyrean warriors, known as Sentinels, have been tasked to kill and capture Sakir across the Aethersphere. Captured Sakir are often put into slavery, where they are given the most brutal treatment and forced to live in the most unbearable conditions.
Seeing no alternative for their survival, the Sakir have resorted to attempting to capture Arcanae and using them as generators to power their Clanships with Ocorah, as well as to provide them with the resources they so desperately need. So far, only one Clanship has succeeded this despicable quest. The remaining Arcanae are now seeking refuge and protection within the powerful city walls built by the Skyrean.
Though the Skyrean civilization, with the help of their Arcanae, are continuing to progress and grow more powerful, Sakir are no less of a threat. Despite Sentinels' efforts to diminish them, Sakir are populating the Aethersphere, making realm travel unsafe for Skyreans. Can the Skyre protect their Arcanae and keep the realm from collapsing? Or will the Sakir successfully turn the Aethersphere into a sea of floating Clanships and desolation?
