In Chapter One, we witnessed the birth of a planet and the beginnings of life, as cells in a drop of water in the ocean. In these first moments of life, our path was decided – we were predators, feasting on other, smaller cells. However, invading alien cells decimated the food chain and brought us close to extinction. In an unexpected manoeuvre, our cells became simple symbiotes with this massive predator and experienced a golden age. Eventually our cells felt the need to move on and drifted away from the alien cells, severing the symbiotic relationship, and came upon the first plants of our new world. Feeding on billions of tiny cells, we were guided inside the plants themselves, finding ourselves in a complex emerald labyrinth. Our cells decimated the population of tiny cells, driving them to extinction. With our food source depleted, we had to move on – and we found a massive swarm of our previous symbiotes, the alien cells. A raging battle followed, and both sides took heavy casualties – but we had come out on top. However, pheromones released by the alien cells were drawing more of their brethren near, and we had to escape. To the surface we travelled, and found abundant food – but for some unknown reason, we were not comfortable there, and so journeyed to the lightless depths of our ocean. In this bleak landscape, we became multicellular.

In Chapter Two, the world saw the Atlantean – sightless eels of the deep. The lightless depths of the ocean was a barren landscape, and food was scarce, but we found the Ashae Krill, and they nourished us for some time. More of these Krill were found on the backs of the colossal Enero Whales, but our population took barely sustainable losses during breeding season…drastic action was needed.

Our species split.

A little more than half left the depths, seeking the light of the surface, while the others remained in the depths. The Atlantean, being the majority, were the ones that left…but the ones that remained were dubbed the Xivai.

The Atlantean swum up along a rocky cliff face, with the young, old, and weak being picked off by predatory Capruca Leeches. They fled and came upon the sand bed, a thriving ecosystem of Batsu Fish and Dracea plants. Here the Atlantean found redemption, evolving eyes and various other adaptations…a second heart, and increased size. A predator evolved to prey on the flourishing Atlantean - the Nuopo Fish, ambushing young Atlantean that strayed too near the sands. Again we adapted, but again, another predator came to our waters. The Vuelan. They were massive shark-like superpredators, unparalleled in the amount of brute strength that they carried. Although the Atlantean were more than able to hunt and feed on the Suopo Fish and Hunter Crabs, their ecosystem was being constantly crowded with large predators, and they had to move. The fringe of the Kelp Forest became their new home, feeding on the creatures who in turn fed on the Kelp, but still they were haunted by the Vuelan here, in addition to the smaller, yet still dangerous Volar Eels. Instead of turning to a different environment, the Atlantean evolved to a sleeker, faster form, with a paddle-tail instead of a fin. This allowed them to hunt the Volar Eels who had once hunted them, even though they were three times their size.

To be continued...
