*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 mysterious 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.
Capricia and her allies, however, have discovered a "lost tribe" of humans on the continent known as Australia - who desperately race against time to construct a machine that will allow them to duplicate the Transition event. Their fuel, however, is chronal energy - a sudden explosion of which has sent Verityn and the mysterious stranger to parts unknown at a most inopportune time...
...for those Atlanteans remaining now find themselves prey of an alien hunter they cannot possibly hope to defeat. *Source: Crux #10
