*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.
Having concluded their adventure with Gannish and Yala, the Atlanteans make their way home. But, unbeknownst to them, Aristophanes plans to change the destiny of the sleeping Atlanteans and the world they live in. Only the bestial Thraxis suspects the truth. *Source: Crux #21
