*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.
Galvan has disturbing visions of his brother Gammid and the final humans he accompanied through Transition. Tug, temporarily blinded by a Negation hunter, and Verityn have uncovered a relic of what appears to be an alien construct that is ancient even to them. Inside this relic they have discovered two living beings... still alive after all these millennia. *Source: Crux #14
