John sat by the lake pondering the effect of the Collective on the history of the Isles. As he gazed over the glossy blue, he remembers the yarns his grandfather would spin every summer night by the fire during his childhood. Tales filled with intricacies and wonders. As a graduate student studying literature, John based his thesis on the structure, themes and ideas vivid within the campfire tales, and how they contributed to the flow and overall captivity. Now contemplating creating a collection of the tales so that children and adults alike may experience the wonder, he sits by the water next to the same campsite where his grandfather filled his head with amazement and recalls the details of the stories of his childhood.
The Isles was a mysterious conglomerate of desolate and flourishing colonies ruled by the Elder Gentiles. There were two realms and endless dimensions from which to choose. Each dimension was connected by the life source implanted by He who has dominion, and occurs twice as a function of both realms. As a result of the Collective overpowering the Elder Gentiles in the Great War of Asa, those who once lived as one, are now separated. Now the people in the Realm of the Collective must make an offering in order to contact or visit the original Realm of the Elder Gentiles.
Back when everything went boom by the hands of He who has dominion, He for short, the High Silah of the Elder Gentiles was born. Silah was the one made by He to guide his lesser creations towards the Beyond. He created Silah from the gas which was before, and the creations accepted Silah and gave of their earthly form. As the dust settled upon the horizons, each thing gave an atom of its being as an offering to the High one who was without bounds. Silah dons the earthly cover as a sign of humility and devotion to the creations. All successors of the original are born from the gas of the first Silah, and wear the same earthly cover given by the first creations.
The 999th Silah was captured by the Collective after the Great War of Asa. The prophesy of the 1000th Silah was to be fulfilled on the night of the third red moon. 1000th was to usher in an era of light, forgiveness and peace by establishing a direct link between the physical and the Beyond. In order to harness the power of the Silah Bond shared among all previous Silahs to give birth to the new, the earthly cover had to be removed, leaving him vulnerable in his meditative, gaseous state. The High Guard of the Elder Gentiles fought to protect the High Silah, but were all vanquished by the advanced technology of the Collective. The 999th High Silah was captured; the Elder Gentiles were dismantled, and the people auctioned, enslaved and trapped in a new age of dominion and darkness.
