*They were the Atlanteans, a peaceful civilization of artists and philosophers who used their phenomenal mental and physical skills to build an island utopia. They had but one responsibility: to guide and shepherd Earth's newborn race of homo sapiens towards a grand and glorious destiny. But when a mysterious cataclysm plunged Atlantis and its people beneath the waves, six - and only six - were awakened by a nameless stranger one thousand centuries later to find their utopia forgotten and in ruins, their brothers and sisters caught in an unshakable slumber... and the human race gone, having vanished centuries ago in the Transition, a passage to a higher plane of existence.
Zephyre and Verityn have joined Geromi and a pair of mysterious strangers in a section of theme park Earth dedicated to the Old West. But the young Atlanteans are unaware that the godlike Gannish and Yala and here as well. Back in Atlantis, Tug and Galvan are working with alien technology to re-awaken the remaining Atlanteans in stasis. Aristophanes takes an unusual amount of interest in this procedure. *Source: Crux #20
