DUEL TERMINAL WORLD HISTORY - AGE 1.0: The "Worm" Invasion to the Revival of "Trishula"
The "Worms" Appear
The continent's tribes fought each other to expand their territories and reign over the land. Seeking power, they waged a war that lasted ages – but it didn't end the way they expected, due to the appearance of the "Worms", invaders from outer space.
These creatures, known as the "Worms", come from organic matter that clings to meteorites. They mutate to evolve and fit their environment, and then multiply. They are invasive lifeforms that consume and exhaust planets throughout the cosmos.
All-out War Against the "Worms"
The tribes lacked information about the true nature of the "Worms", so they gathered large forces similar to army ants to fight the invaders. Each tribe was forced to reach a truce, and each began to fight the "Worms" in its own way.
As for the non-"Ice Barrier" tribes: they dispatched powerful figures among their ranks to fight against the "Worms". They each displayed their power by making mincemeat of the gathered "Worm" forces, slicing them to pieces and burning them to ash.
The various assaults that rained down on the "Worms" became the external stimulus that caused them to evolve in various ways which resulted in the emergence of new beings that had adapted to deal with the attacks they'd suffered.
The "Allies of Justice" Are Formed
As a result of the invasion, entire tribes began to die out, and the remaining tribes gathered and held a conference. They realized that they couldn't each oppose the invaders alone, and decided to join forces. Thus, the alliance, "Ally of Justice", was formed. It was headed by the four main tribes that had the most influence on the continent, and it began developing and producing Anti-"Worm" Weapons.
"Catastor" was built by a complete and perfect cooperation between the four tribes. It reaped major gains on the battlefield every time it was deployed.
The "Worms" and "Genex" Come into Contact
Around this time, the "Ally of Justice" engineers confirmed the existence of the "Genex". Although their precise purpose was unknown, the "Genex" were observed to be silent creatures who seemed to have the ability to improve the environment around them. When they encountered the "Worms", they recognized them as outside invaders who polluted and destroyed the environment, so they began to eliminate them. Meanwhile, the "Allies" launched an investigation into the "Genex's" true nature...
"Controller" allows the other "Genex" to reveal their full power through its ability to combine its Central Control Core with them.
The "XX-Sabers" Are Formed
After many battles against the "Worms", the "X-Sabers" were injured. "Gottoms", their leader at the time, chose the next generation of swordsmen, the "XX-Sabers", and headed off to the battlefield once again.
Every time the "Worms" fought, their surviving members kept evolving, and ultimately, individuals with high levels of intelligence appeared. They gathered as a group and started commanding the lower-level "Worms".
The "X-Sabers" fought bitterly against the "Worms", who outnumbered them. "Pashuul" lost parts of his body in battle, but he replaced them with artificial limbs and returned to the battlefield despite his wounds.
The next generation of "X-Sabers", with "Gottoms" continuing to serve as leader. Using feedback from the various improvements to the "Ally of Justice", each of the members put on equipment with mechanical functions.
As the days passed, the conflict spread across the entire continent, and the intensity of the "Worm" attacks increased. Their slimy claws finally reached the peaceful "Naturia", who joined together to match the power of the invaders and protect their home.
The "Naturia" tribe is fundamentally pacifist, but they could not overlook the "Worm" invasion that polluted their beautiful forest, so they confronted them bravely without a single member stepping back in fear.
"Ally of Justice Field Marshal" Wages a Fierce Battle
The warriors see a valiant figure towering over the battlefield, shining in their hopeful eyes: "Field Marshal". But it had been severely damaged on the way to the battlefield by a great number of "Worms", so it was deemed beyond repair, and was abandoned.
"Mist Valley" Withdraws from the "Allies of Justice"
The technicians of the "Allies of Justice" investigated the meteorite that came from the "Worm" home star system, and they discovered an unknown substance in it which they used to complete the "Ally Mind". Experimentally equipping it allowed the computing power of the "Allies of Justice" to rise by leaps and bounds.
The "Mist Valley" tribe had small doubts about the Allies' policy of taking advantage of the voiceless "Genex", since they weren't enemies. These feelings were tiny at first, but the "Fabled" amplified them into a great distrust of the rest of the alliance. As a result, "Mist Valley" left the "Allies of Justice", all according to the schemes of the "Fabled".
At the same time, the "Allies" began developing the "Cosmic Gateway", but the development was rough, as they were unable to get the machine to produce the proper output.
The "Fabled" Tribe Revives
Perhaps they were awakened by the mayhem on the surface, or perhaps by the Allies' dimensional interference experiments – either way, the "Fabled", who had been sleeping since time immemorial, awoke and led their minions to the surface world.
The philosophy of the "Fabled" is, 'be faithful to your desires'. In accordance with that ideal, these evil gods refuse to aid the tribes, only bothering to interfere in the surface-dwellers' fights when it suits their own enjoyment.
The proud "Jurrac" clan refused to let themselves become the hunted, and they fought back together against the "Fabled" with everything they had. The flames that clothed their bodies became fires of unity with their comrades; and with them, they burned the "Fabled", who had become the hunters, to ash.
On top of the "Worms", the "Fabled" became a new enemy, turning the surface world into a pot of chaos. In order to stop the vast army of "Worms" who continued to march day and night, and to counter the threat of the elusive "Fabled", the "Ice Barrier" freed the second Ice Dragon.
With its body freed from the seal, "Gungnir" began to dance across the battlefield as if trembling with joy. Its breath turned the invaders and wicked gods into immobile ice sculptures.
The "Dragunity" Appear from "Mist Valley"
After leaving the "Allies of Justice", the "Mist Valley" fought on their own. However, the strongest weapon in their arsenal was the lone "Mist Wurm", and when it was defeated, it seemed like their troops would be completely routed – and that was when the legendary dragon knights rode in to the rescue.
The "Dragunity", whose existence was partially considered a legend, are said to dwell in the "Dragon Ravine". They are a tribe that has handed down a method of unifying with their dragons, in body and soul, known as "Dragon Mastery". This allows them to become "Dragunity Knights" who ride through the air.
Final Battle with the "Worms"
As the "Worm" invasion became strangely and increasingly sporadic, the "Allies of Justice" began constructing their ultimate weapon in preparation for the final battle. At the same time, they wound down production of their other weapons, and focused instead on creating other tools.
The ultimate weapon was to be their ace in the hole, and as they constructed it, the "Allies of Justice" developed reconnaissance units mounted with monitoring equipment that was designed to predict where "Worms" would appear.
An enormous floating fortress, constructed to have the greatest firepower known to the planet, was lying in wait for the enemy's appearance. At the end of the fierce battle, in which the weapon and "Zero" attacked each other at the same time, the "Worms" were eradicated.
With the "Worms" defeated, there was a short-lived peace – and it was then that the full-scale invasion of the "Fabled" began.
"The Fabled" Appear
For a brief moment, the tribes cheered excitedly as the world was finally rid of the "Worms". But the "Fabled" had been watching the final battle from the sidelines; and now, accompanied by "The Fabled" beasts, they made their move to conquer the world's surface.
The seemingly endless conflicts that ravaged the surface world gradually wore down the boundary between it and the "Fabled" Realm, eventually causing that boundary to disappear completely. "The Fabled", serving as the "Fabled" Army's vanguard, began pouring quietly out of the "Fabled" Realm and threatening the tribes with their paranormal powers.
The "Genex Allies" Are Created
With the "Fabled" as their enemies, the "Ally of Justice" Weapon Series was no longer good enough, so their engineers began a military-focused conversion project on the "Genex": a new version of their ongoing "Genex" Weaponization Plan. For the sake of their plans, the "Allies" asked "Mist Valley" to cooperate with them once again. "Mist Valley" agreed and sent its engineers, and the plan succeeded and resulted in the creation of the "Genex Allies".
The engineers of the "Ally of Justice" tribes advanced their own designs based on some basic specifications, resulting in "Genex Allies" that reflected each of their strengths. Moreover, they offered each other the technology they developed in the process, and ended up pushing forward in pursuit of joint development.
A "Genex Ally" developed soon after "Triarm", by the joint efforts of the "XX-Sabers" and the "Flamvell". The weapon equipped on its right arm can rotate, allowing it to adjust to situations on the fly.
The "Allies" sent "Triarm" and "Triforce to the front lines, one after the other.
The "Fabled" assault against the "Jurrac" reached its peak. With each passing day, the "Jurrac" lost more and more energy, and the number of flames was reduced to half of what it was before the "Fabled" made their surprise attack. If things kept going that way, they would have been destroyed, so the "Jurrac" made one final counterattack.
The remaining "Jurrac" clustered and transformed their bodies into a giant blazing meteor that fell on their own nest. The fire and impact turned the entire area, as far as the eye could see, into a sea of flames. The "Fabled" were reduced to ashes along with the nest, and from the fire-scorched remains, the "Neo Flamvell" were born.
The fire tribe's thoughts awakened an ancient deity of fire and flames which existed in a mythical age. "Ancient Flamvell Deity", who had slept for eons, responded to the fire tribe's wishes and used its power to immolate the "Fabled" left in the "Jurrac" nest until not even ashes were left.
The Seal of "Trishula" Is Undone
Many of the "Fabled" were wiped out, but the remaining groups only intensified their attacks across the world. The seemingly endless conflict laid waste to the surface world and pushed its people into impoverishment and exhaustion. Having been driven to such a point, one faction among the "Ice Barrier" proposed releasing the third Ice Dragon. The "Ice Barrier" tribe was internally divided over the matter, but they ultimately unleashed the dragon.
Powerful individuals among the "Ice Barrier" gathered, and carefully shattered the seal one piece at a time. The rituals and procedures continued, day and night over a month, until the entire seal was broken.
The power of "Trishula" was terrifying and dreadful, and it destroyed all the "Fabled" on the planet. However, the "Ice Barrier" lost control of the beast, and it went into a furious rage - and the other dragons, as if in response, rampaged with it.
In the unlikely event that the Ice Dragons went on a rampage, "Dewloren" was to serve as a safety device, but the Tiger King's power didn't match that of the three rampaging Ice Dragons, and it couldn't stop the madness and frenzy.
DUEL TERMINAL WORLD HISTORY - AGE 1.5: The Corruption of "Noellia" to the Formation of the "Gishki"
Two Mages of the "Ice Barrier": "Noellia" and "Natalia"
During the "Ice Barrier" tribe's dispute over whether or not to release the Ice Dragons, two mages and childhood friends considered alternative options. There was "Natalia", whose family sided with releasing the dragons, and "Noellia", whose family opposed releasing the dragons. Both of them sought to find something else to use in place of "Trishula".
The two had their eyes on demons called "Steelswarm", which had been sealed since ancient times, as a means to defeat the "Fabled". They attempted a Demon Summoning Technique derived from mystical arts handed down to members of the "Ice Barrier" through the generations.
A mage who was the childhood friend of "Noellia" and the mother of "Gishki Avance". The regret of dying and leaving behind her young son caused her thoughts and spirit to remain in the living world.
"Sacred Spirit of the Ice Barrier" Simultaneously Seals All Three of the Dragons
As the three dragons began to rampage out of control, the spectral entity, "Sacred Spirit", which had been watching over the "Ice Barrier" for generations, used a Sealing Technique at the cost of his being, and successfully sealed all three dragons at the same time.
The Founding of the "Ice Barrier" and the Past of the "Prior" who Sealed the Three Dragons
Long ago, the three dragons who ran rampant among the snowy mountains were sealed with a special method involving the "Mirror of the Ice Barrier". The "Prior" founded the "Ice Barrier" then, and his soul transcended to become the "Sacred Spirit".
After ensuring the safety of several children from the "Gusto" clan, "Noellia" sent them home to the clan's village.
"Noellia" Founds the Society of Forbidden Arts
"Noellia", who was being slowly corrupted by the thoughts and feelings of the "Steelswarm", changed into a completely different person, and began research into theretofore forbidden rituals. Once she completed her research, she began to educate the children she'd adopted, as practitioners of the method. She broke off from the "Ice Barrier", taking with her their sacred artifact, the "Mirror of the Ice Barrier". Thus began the Society of Forbidden Arts, "Gishki".
After "Noellia" finished modifying the "Mirror of the Ice Barrier", it became an artifact for controlling all sorts of rituals.
DUEL TERMINAL WORLD HISTORY - AGE 2.0: The "Laval" Invasion of "Gem-Knight" Territory to the Repulsion of "Sophia, Goddess of Rebirth"
The "Laval" Invade the "Gem-Knights'" Territory
The war-like "Laval" decided to invade the neighboring "Gem-Knight" tribe to entertain themselves. The mild-mannered and preachy "Gem-Knights" didn't launch a counterattack, but they did rise up against the repeated provocations in order to protect their comrades.
Crowned with the title of "Lord", he is the first-class warrior who united the combat-oriented "Laval" tribe. By his orders and directions, many of the vigorous, energetic, and reckless members of the "Laval" are able to fight in an organized fashion.
A warrior with an Aquamarine Core, who boasts outstanding defensive might among the "Gem-Knights". He blocks the almost-daily attacks that the "Laval" army launches, giving his allies time to prepare for battle.
Meanwhile, "Noellia" began attempting to break the seal on the "Steelswarm"...
The "Vylon" Intervene in Conflicts Across the Planet
As the "Lavals" and "Gem-Knights" battled, mechanical angels - "Vylon" - descended from the heavens to intervene and force an armistice. They then began to intervene aggressively in other battles all across the planet's surface. In response to the attacks of the "Vylon", the "Lavals" and "Gem-Knights" agreed to a temporary truce.
Mechanical angels that serve as arbiters who observe the surface from the sky above. In ancient times, the fiends called the "Steelswarm" had pushed the surface to the brink of extinction, so the "Vylon" sealed them deep within the earth.
In the Ancient Past, the Mobile Weapon System "Vylon" Was Mass-produced to Oppose the "Steelswarm"
During their battle against the "Steelswarm", the "Constellars" developed entities known as "Vylon" whose bodies were meant to be impervious to corruption by the thoughts and feelings of the "Steelswarm". After the "Steelswarm" were sealed, the "Vylon" continued to observe the planet's surface, and they sensed traces of "Steelswarm" activity deep within "Noellia". In order to search for the source, they descended from on high.
The Anti-"Steelswarm" Weapons known as the "Vylon" have the ability to sense traces of evil in others. In order to discover those corrupted by the thoughts of the "Steelswarm" deep inside them, they intervened on the battlefields of many wars and conflicts, where many were generating negative emotions. They then analyzed the data they'd gathered.
The "Gishki" Invade the Great "Mist Valley" Marshlands Where the "Gusto" Live
The emerging power, "Gishki", led by "Noellia", decided to try and seize the abundant resources that lay unexploited in the Great "Mist Valley" Marshlands. Thus, they began an invasion to defeat the tribe that protected the Great Marshlands: the "Gusto".
The "Gishki" used Forbidden Magic to transform their bodies into monsters in order to battle. "Ariel", who was orphaned, was adopted by "Noellia", and grew up to be a excellent mage due to her special training and education.
Among the "Gusto" tribe's fighting styles was their method of man and bird fighting together as one. The tribe, who had once helped "Noellia", was confused by her sudden actions, but they decided to fight back against the "Gishki" in order to protect the Great Marshlands.
The True Purpose Behind the Invasion
The invasion was ostensibly launched so the "Gishki" could obtain natural resources from the Great Marshlands that would help stabilize its influence as a major player. However, the real goal of "Noellia" from the beginning for attacking the "Gusto" was to obtain the power of "God". Moreover, the "Steelswarm" thoughts infecting her mind guided her subconsciously to begin the invasion.
The Ruins That Stand Before the Great "Mist Valley" Marshlands
The shrine that stands before the Great Marshlands. "God", said to be sleeping in this land, is worshiped and enshrined here by the "Gusto".
"Noellia" Finishes Breaking the "Steelswarm" Seal
There was another reason behind the invasion of the Great "Mist Valley" Marshlands - a hidden side. "Noellia" was secretly searching for the "Steelswarm", who she considered her comrades, knowing that they were sealed near the Great Marshlands. She planned to use her allies to break the seal.
The Absolute Predators Swarm Out onto the Planet's Surface
The "Steelswarm" were freed from the seal of the "Vylon" and let loose upon the planet's surface. Their ravenous hunger caused them to immediately label every living thing in the Marshlands as food, and the predators began to eat their fill by feasting on their "Gishki" allies who had survived the invasion and broken the seal. As the "Steelswarm" rampaged, many more fell prey to them and were slain.
The "Steelswarm" inside of "Noellia" awakened when she delved deeper into the forbidden arts for a way to revive her friend. During an experiment, the daughter of "Noellia", "Emilia", lost her life in an accident.
By forcibly separating the target's soul from its body, the practitioner can alter the soul. This ritual method twists and changes the corpse, but leaves it behind to be sacrificed, allowing one to get two entities' worth of fighting strength for the cost of one sacrifice.
"Noellia" controlled and enslaved her astral body, rendering her soul unable to return to her flesh-and-blood body.
The Great "Steelswarm" War Begins
Having been caught off guard by the revived "Steelswarm", the "Vylon" captured some of them and reported their findings to the "Constellar". They then sent out the strongest machine angel, "Vylon Omega", and began supporting the main forces of each major tribe in order to buy time for "Omega" to gather enough energy.
The Main Forces of Each Tribe Work with the "Vylon"
The "Vylon", who modified themselves to serve as equipment, equipped themselves to the main forces of each tribe. This increased their fighting power while also serving to protect them from being corrupted by the "Steelswarm".
During the battle against the "Steelswarm", "Noellia" suffered serious wounds and, nearly dead, she retreated from the front lines. Finally, "Omega" gathered enough energy and was able to cut down the vast hordes of "Steelswarm" covering the planet's surface, in a single, decisive strike of divine judgement. The "Steelswarm" were utterly defeated.
The Thoughts of the Steelswarm Corrupt the "Vylon"
"Noellia", who was on the side of the "Steelswarm", had feigned her true motivations by siding with the "Vylon" camp, but she'd also desired to corrupt the "Vylon" by assimilating with their hivemind. Her scheme succeeded, and she managed to transmit the thoughts of the "Steelswarm" among the "Vylon".
"Noellia" had equipped herself with "Vylon Tetra" by changing into "Tetrogre" through a Ritual, and she'd slowly corrupted him since then. The connected consciousness of the "Vylon" then allowed for every member to be infected.
The Vylon Go on a Rampage, and the Anti-"Vylon" Alliance Forms
After all of the "Vylon" were corrupted, they went on a rampage. Guided by the machine-like purpose of making the entire surface world equal and uniform, they attacked every tribe. In response, four tribes on the surface rallied together and formed an alliance, and a new fight began, to repel the "Vylon".
"Steelswarm Roach" is born from power of a piece of a corrupted "Vylon"
A piece of a "Vylon" that was destroyed during a fight with the Anti-"Vylon" Alliance came into contact with a "Steelswarm" that had secretly survived. The two powers of light and darkness dwelling inside the fragment brought about a sudden evolution in the creature that touched it, giving rise to the new entity, "Steelswarm Roach".
Most entities that touched the fragment would be killed by an intense reaction to the combination of the good and evil forces it contained. But those who could endure the intense symptoms would be able to dramatically evolve, and in that way, "Steelswarm Sentinel" mutated into "Steelswarm Roach".
Without "Noellia", the "Gishki" Halt Their Activities
After "Noellia" was nearly-fatally wounded, and left the front lines of the war against the "Steelswarm", the "Gishki" had no one to lead their invasion, so they paused it and joined forces with the other remaining tribes during the war with the "Vylon".
The "Gishki" was an organization formed and led by "Noellia", and it acted according to her will, so her absence meant the immediate cessation of its activities. Those among the society who remained together also kept fighting together in the great "Steelswarm" war, side-by-side with the other tribes.
The Four Tribes Oppose "Disigma" with New Powers
Against the continued rampage of the "Vylon", the four tribes awakened a new power called "Xyz" in order to oppose them. But "Disigma" analyzed and absorbed their negative emotions, allowing it to absorb many warriors in turn.
Six warriors were absorbed by "Disigma". "Merrowgeist" was an Xyz of the soul of "Gishki Emilia" and "Musto". "Gustkraken" was the flesh-and-blood body of "Emilia", sacrificed for a ritual art that created a monster. "Falcos", who was handled by "Kamui", let himself be absorbed in order to save "Kamui".
"Gem-Knight Pearl" Manages to Defeat "Disigma"
As one ally after another was absorbed, "Pearl", a warrior associated with the "Gem-Knights" who had no negative emotions, was able to bypass the "Vylon" and their sensors, and inflicted fatal damage to "Disigma".
An attack used by "Pearl", a warrior who chiefly belongs to the peaceful "Gem-Knight" tribe, that draws out all of his power. His attack's continuous, surging waves caused "Disigma" to stop functioning before Pearl reached it, and it's said that everyone who saw this sight was reminded of a fearsome deity.
Thus, all of the "Vylon" were defeated.
The thoughts of the "Steelswarm" had spread from "Noellia" and caused "Disigma" to run out of control, but after its defeat, and with "Noellia" on the verge of death, they returned to her. As a result, the "Steelswarm" inside of her awakened, causing her body to rapidly recover.
The thoughts of the "Steelswarm" had nowhere else to go when "Disigma" was destroyed, so they returned to "Noellia".
The "Gishki" Use Forbidden Magic to Absorb the "Laval"
Upon the return of "Noellia", the "Gishki" shifted back to their path of invasion. Their first step was to approach the "Laval" in a ploy to join forces, but their true intention was to replenish their fighting strength by absorbing them as sacrifices.
The form of "Gishki Chain", after it gained forbidden power by sacrificing the "Laval". The fighting strength of the "Gishki" increased beyond its previous limits as they sacrificed and absorbed basically every "Laval".
It seemed the tribe known as the "Laval" had been extinguished, but a lone member, "Phlogis", emerged from far up in the volcanic mountain where he had been lumberjacking.
The "Gishki" Restart Their Invasion of the Lands of the "Gusto"
At this point, the mind of "Noellia" was severely corrupted. She showed for the first time that she would use any possible means, no matter how barbaric, to achieve her goals. She restarted her invasion of the "Gusto" by unleashing a deadly poison on the mighty wind that flowed from the "Mist Valley" to the Marshlands. The wind massacred most of the "Gusto" as it spread over the entire Marshlands.
The "Poisonous Winds" blew across the vast wetlands, causing even the "Gusto" village to be shrouded in the deadly poison which attacked a being's entire body. "Caam", on the verge of death, lost the strength to stand. Did her prayer reach "God"...?
"Winda's" father, "Windaar", makes a charge against the "Gishki" forces and manages to temporarily stop the spread of the deadly poison.
The "Gem-Knights" Rush to Aid and Rescue the "Gusto"
The "Gem-Knights" knew of the crisis of the "Gusto", and they rushed to save them, for they were peoples with the same desire for peace. "Daigusto Emeral", a new warrior born from Fusion, managed to blow away the "Poisonous Winds" with their power.
"Daigusto Emeral" is a warrior who came about when "Gem-Knight Emerald" fused with a "Gusto". Not only can they control the weather and create winds, but they can even change the atmospheric makeup to a limited degree. They have huge, heavy knuckles attached to both of their arms that boast extreme hardness, and are capable of crushing all obstacles in their path.
"Gem-Knight Zirconia" Is Born
In the face of the barbarity of the "Gishki", the mild "Gem-Knights" finally felt fury. The veteran warrior "Crystal" tried to optimize his Fusion ability, ascending to the form, "Zirconia", which represented his power's limits.
The wicked mental entity, "Evilswarm", awoke from the corpse the "Steelswarm". It possessed the bodies of those who had died in the Great Marshlands during the last Great War, and began to use them to attack the living.
The "Evilswarm" even began to infect the three Ice Dragons that were sealed by the "Sacred Spirit" in the past. It wouldn't be long until the day came when they were corrupted enough to start to move.
The "Evilswarm" Continues to Awaken and Expand Its Corruption
After "Evilswarm" awoke, it possessed and animated the corpses and wreckage littered throughout the Great Marshlands. The dead began to attack the living, and those who were attacked became "Evilswarm" themselves, causing the corruption to spread even further.
Soon, the "Evilswarm" phenomenon expanded to infecting the living as well. The three dragons of the "Ice Barrier" became completely infected by the "Evilswarm" plague.
The "Steelswarm" Were the Hosts of the Psychic Organism, "Evilswarm"
The "Steelswarm" were creatures that were compatible with "Evilswarm"-ization and hosting the "Evilswarm" inside their bodies. But did the creatures that became their hosts come from another world, or did they originate on the surface? The truth is unknown.
Higher-grade "Steelswarm" They were the first to adapt to "Evilswarm"-ification by having the evil thoughts dwell inside their bodies. Alongside their absolute malice, they possessed an incredibly high intellect, and the power to transmit the "Evilswarm" into the corpses and wreckage of their "prey".
Lower-grade "Steelswarm" They were the corpses of the higher-grade "Steelswarm's" prey in ancient times, that were since possessed by the "Evilswarm". Their intellect was quite inferior to that of the higher grade.
The "Constellar" Finally Arrive
The rapid spread of the corruption of the awakened "Evilswarm" threw the surface world into a period of confusion. It was at this point that the "Constellar", knights of salvation mentioned in myth and lore, descended onto the world. They launched an all-out assault against the "Evilswarm" in order to shatter the continually-growing chain of evil thoughts.
A high-ranking member of the starlight knights, the "Constellars". Its fighting strength is greater than that of the other "Constellars", and it's said that the other warriors can lend support attacks while it fights at the front of the battlefield.
They Had Received the Reports of the "Vylon" on the Revival of the "Evilswarm"
The "Vylon" had been developed to oppose the "Steelswarm" and observe the surface. The "Constellars" had received their notice that the "Steelswarm" had revived, so they'd sallied forth to exterminate the "Steelswarm".
"Noellia" Breaks the Seal on the Three Dragons of the "Ice Barrier"
Faced with the deadlock between the wildly rampaging "Evilswarm" and the advent of the "Constellar", "Noellia" attempted to break the seal on the three dragons. However, as the dragons had already been already corrupted by the "Evilswarm", they revived as the most sinister and evil beings.
"Noellia" Performs Forbidden Magic Using "Steelswarm" Corpses
"Noellia" once again attempted to use the spell that had taken her best friend's life, and succeeded in performing a Ritual using the corpses of the "Steelswarm" - but her body and mind were corrupted into rampaging alongside the "Steelswarm".
Because of the "Steelswarm" crest on the surface of the "Aquamirror" she holds, it can be surmised that she's been completely corrupted by the "Steelswarm" in body and soul.
The "Gishki" Resurrect the Corrupted "Steelswarm Hercules"
"Noellia", along with other members of the "Gishki", continued to perform forbidden magic - this time using the corpse of "Hercules" - but those incapable of resisting its intense evil thoughts were instantly corrupted, and this became the form in which "Hercules" revived.
"Steelswarm Hercules" corrupted the conjurers who performed the ritual. In order to achieve a complete resurrection, he began smashing the "Aquamirrors" that could undo the ritual.
"Avance" Fails His Attempted Resurrection Ritual
"Avance" desired above all else to revive "Emilia", who had been completely erased when her body and soul were absorbed by "Disigma". Using a "Photomirror" ritual art that he'd discovered in an ancient document, he attempted to resurrect the soul of "Emilia", but his intense feelings for her caused the ritual to backfire and fail.
A mirror that performs Rituals by sacrificing the user's soul. "Avance" intended to sacrifice his own soul.
"Avance" Transforms Into "Levianima"
The unstable mental state of "Avance" during the ritual caused the power of the "Photomirror" to rebound on him. He absorbed the soul of "Emilia", which had revived in an incomplete form, and this caused him to undergo a complete change into the uncontrollable monster, "Levianima". He lost his sense of self and began rampaging.
"Avance" transformed into a monster: a form of his being that the "Photomirror" drew out from inside his soul.
Older Brother of "Pollux", "Castor", Kamikaze-Attacks "Psychelone", and Dies
"Constellar Castor" attacked "Psychelone" who was indiscriminately attacking everyone in a blind rampage. While he managed to free "Noellia" from the will of the "Steelswarm", "Castor" lost his life in the process.
The "Evilswarm" didn't fail to notice the fact that "Castor" had lost his life in a suicide attack. They began to immediately corrupt his corpse, creating "Evilswarm Castor", who wielded the powers of both light and darkness.
His swordsmanship and ability didn't change in the slightest with his possession, and they greatly contributed to the expansion and influence of the "Evilswarm".
"Noellia" Completes the "Photomirror" Ritual Using the Art of the "Cycle"
"Noellia", who had recovered her senses, regretted the crimes she had committed, and released the rampaging "Avance" from his spell. Then, she decided to revive "Emilia" using her own soul as a sacrifice for the "Aquamirror Cycle".
By combining the magics of the "Photomirror" and "Aquamirror", they attempted to completely revive "Emilia" in body and soul.
The End of "Zielgigas", and the Inherited "Aquamirror"
In front of "Noellia", who had sacrificed nearly all of her life force, appeared "Zielgigas". He had been drawn by the power of the ritual. She defeated him using her remaining life energy, and entrusted her two children, from birth and adoption, with the "Aquamirror", before drawing her last breath.
In order to protect "Emilia" and "Avance", "Noellia" used the last of her remaining power to destroy "Zielgigas".
The "Gem-Knights" Rush to the Sides of the Outnumbered "Constellars"
The transformation of "Castor" into an "Evilswarm", alongside the infection of the three dragons, pushed the "Constellar" into a crisis. In that state, they united with the "Gem-Knights", who shared their sense of justice. A new soldier, "Seraphinite", was born from the fusion of "Virgo" and the warrior who controlled the power of the heavens, "Lazuli".
A soldier born from the fusion of a "Gem-Knight" and a "Constellar". She possessed a core that symbolized "spreading friendship", and she used that power to help rebuild the "Constellar" forces.
"Constellar Pollux" Strikes Down "Evilswarm Castor", Who Slays "Pollux" in Turn
"Castor" was the elder brother, and "Pollux" the younger. They had taken down many enemies together throughout their lives, using their synchronized team attack; but after being corrupted by the "Evilswarm", the elder brother turned his blade on his younger brother. The two of them struck each other simultaneously and with equal power, and the "Evilswarm" tried to use this unique opportunity to corrupt "Pollux" as well.
The Gemini brothers. "Pollux", one of the two "Constellar" who govern the constellation Gemini, confronted his older brother "Castor", who had been turned into one of the "Evilswarm".
"Gem-Knight Seraphinite" and "Constellar Rasalhague" Successfully Revive "Pollux" and "Castor"
The "Gem-Knight" touched the souls of the two valiant heroes, trying to revive them before they were completely corrupted by the "Evilswarm" - and with help from "Constellar Rasalhague", "Seraphinite" had her power amplified, and the revival succeeded.
The "Constellar" of Ophiuchus. He provides logistical support, and wields a staff that controls healing and resurrection. He appears to have a somewhat different mission from the "Constellar" of the other 12 constellations.
"Constellar Ptolmey M7" Is Born
The "Constellar", witnessing the power of Fusion of the "Gem-Knights", became aware of the power hidden deep within themselves - to unite their stars - and unleashed it. Seven chosen "Constellars" became the divine dragon of legend, and faced off against the "Evilswarm" in the final, decisive battle.
A divine dragon who was a fusion of 7 beings: "Acubens", "Leonis", "Alrescha", "Aldebaran", "Virgo", "Algiedi", and "Antares" as the core. With its support and its incredible power, the "Constellar" returned to the front lines and began to turn the tide of the battle they'd been losing.
"Ptolemy M7" could split into two dragons, creating a belt of light that granted power only to the living.
"Gem-Knight Master Diamond" Is Born
Before the ultimate, decisive battle with the "Evilswarm", the power of the 7 "Constellar" who became "Ptolemy" resonated with the power of the 7 cores that had gathered as the cores of "Zirconia". Thus, the strongest warrior, "Gem-Knight Master Diamond", was born.
"Zirconia" concentrated the power of the higher-level "Gem-Knights" into "Master Diamond": the strongest warrior. He carried a great sword containing the powers of seven cores which housed the crystallized power of repeated and optimized fusions.
The Ultimate, Decisive Battle between "Constellar Ptolemy M7" and "Evilswarm Ouroboros"
In the skies above the "Mist Valley" Marshlands, the strongest trump card of the "Constellar" and the most diabolic dragon of the "Evilswarm" began their battle with the fate of the world hanging in the balance. Many neighboring areas were decimated from the impacts of the fierce battle. And all the while, the "Divine Wind of Mist Valley", which had been witnessed many times in the past, began to form around the two dragons.
During the battle, "Gem-Knight Pearl" gave up his life protecting "Ptolemy M7".
As "M7" fought the dark dragon, the "Gem-Knights" swept away the vast majority of the low-level "Evilswarm".
The Overflowing "Divine Wind"
The "Divine Wind" flowed out from the "Mist Valley" Marshlands and filled the surrounding regions that had become the battlefield. It breezed gently over the Marshlands, and seemed to be attracted to the "Shrine of Mist Valley".
An unidentified phenomenon witnessed all across the planet. It always seemed to occur in places that were devastated by war, and was thus said to be the sigh of the Divine, grieving over those conflicts.
The "Divine Wind" Begins to Gather at the "Shrine"
The "Divine Wind" began to swirl at the center at the "Shrine of Mist Valley", drawn to the center of its altar where a deity was enshrined in a great stone. The "God" there, disappointed by this world that was drowning in war, decided to purify the surface world.
The altar was destroyed, and from it appeared the giant "Goddess of Rebirth". Unwilling to let the desolation of the surface world continue, she decided to annihilate every living thing on the planet in order to purify it.
"Sophia", the goddess who created many of the lifeforms on the planet. Major symbols and designs from each tribe can be seen on her body. The only part of her body visible at the "Shrine of Mist Valley" is her head.
The world is pushed to the edge of extinction by "Sophia, Goddess of Rebirth"
In her hands, she held two crystallized embodiments of power which could destroy every living thing in the world and create a new one. The tribe members who stood before her on the front lines were obliterated by her overwhelming power, and it seemed like it was only a matter of time before the entire world was annihilated.
The Power of Creation of "Sophia"
From the crystallized power of Creation in her left hand, she created an endless horde of soldiers, her 'children', which surged with overwhelming numbers. Their forms were similar to those of the existing surface tribes.
The Power of Destruction of "Sophia"
The crystallized power of Destruction in her right hand emitted a light that erased every living thing it touched, instantly and all at once. It went beyond physical destruction: it broke down a being's very existence to create new life.
"Lazuli" and "Virgo" Inherit the Fusion Power of "Gem-Knight Master Diamond"
The damage to the core of "Diamond" began to exceed sustainable limits, and it became impossible for him to continue fighting. Knowing this, he entrusted his power of Fusion to "Lazuli" and "Virgo". The two of them attempted to use that power to fuse with all of the "Constellar".
A longsword that held the "Gem-Knight" power of Fusion, and which had been constantly optimized through their countless battles. "Lazuli" inherited this sword and used it as the core of her ultimate fusion with 12 of the "Constellars".
"Lazuli" and the 12 "Constellar"
"Lazuli" fused with the 12 "Constellar" of the Zodiac. "Rasalhague", the warrior of Ophiuchus, had other intentions, so he exempted himself from the the Fusion.
The Power of Creation is Drawn in by the Power of Fusion
Unable to resist the incredible Fusion energy that came of fusing 13 beings, the crystal that contained the power of Creation of "Sophia" was dragged and incorporated into the fusion, creating the ultimate warrior who not only had the power of the stars, but the power of a God.
The power of Creation of "Sophia"
"Constellar Sombre" Is Born
The warrior of hope, "Constellar Sombre", wielded power equal to that of a god. In order to save the surface world from doomsday, she faced "Sophia" in the ultimate, decisive battle.
She possessed the weapons of all of the "Constellar", and in her right hand she held the longsword she got from "Diamond". It was the symbol of the power of Fusion, but it was changed into a single-handed sword. The crystal of Creation she absorbed emitted a holy light from her chest.
"Constellar Rasalhague" Attempts a Fusion with the Three "Evilswarm" Dragons
"Rasalhague" intentionally kept himself out of the fusion, aiming instead for a fusion that only Ophiuchus could perform: Because they were corrupted in state they couldn't resist due to their seal, unlike the other "Evilswarm", "Rasalhague" speculated they still had life energy left.
The three dragons, which had been assimilated into the undead army, had their corruption converted into life energy by "Rasalhague" using his power of revival. He intended to use their power to oppose "Sophia".
Thanks to the Power of the "Aquamirror", "Rasalhague" Successfully Fuses with the Three Dragons
With the "Mirror of the Ice Barrier" that was transformed into the "Aquamirror" in hand, the two "Gishki" youths ran to the aid of "Rasalhague". He was struggling to control the three dragons, but thanks to the power of the "Aquamirror", his Fusion succeeded.
The Power of Fusion Absorbs the Power of Destruction
As "Rasalhague" absorbed the power of the "Aquamirror" along with the three powerful dragons, the entity he was becoming also ended up absorbing the crystal of the power of Destruction that lay in the right hand of "Sophia". A soldier of twilight was born, who possessed four forces of destruction - three from the dragons and one from God herself - as well as the healing power of a "Constellar".
The power of Destruction of "Sophia"
The powers of light and darkness collided within his body, and the power of God herself was superimposed onto them, giving rise to the ultimate warrior of darkness, "Evilswarm Kerykeion". He joined the final, decisive battle to support the light of hope known as "Sombre" in order to defeat the planet.
With both the staff of "Rasalhague" and the "Aquamirror" staff in hand, he was able to completely unleash the power of the three dragons' cores floating around him. In his chest is the crystal of the power of Destruction shining red-black.
With Help from "Kerykeion", "Sombre" Manages to Defeat "Sophia"
In order to defeat "Sophia", who was temporarily weakened by her two powers being stolen, "Sombre" and "Kerykeion" faced her in a final battle. After several days of nonstop combat, they pierced and broke the orb on her head that served as the source of the power of "God", finally banishing her from the surface world.
With "Kerykeion" sealing the movements of "Sophia", "Sombre" ended the battle by using her sword to pierce the orb on the goddess' forehead.
"Sombre" and "Kerykeion" Vanish from the Planet
After banishing "Sophia", "Sombre" and "Kerykeion" themselves vanished from the face of the surface world. Perhaps they were guided by the power of "Sophia" inside them. Meanwhile, those who survived began to reconstruct the surface world, living and carrying on as the traces of God vanished.
The Survivors on the Planet Start Rebuilding
After "Sombre" and "Kerykeion" vanished, those who survived the Great War reached past their own tribes and worked together. They began reconstruction in and around the vast and still resource-rich "Mist Valley" Marshlands. With God no longer able to help or harm them, what kind of world awaits those willing to forge a future with their own strength?
The Children of "Noellia" and the Survivors of the "Gusto" Play a Vital Role in Repairing the Surface World
The children of "Noellia" were trained in all sorts of knowledge, and the youngest members of the "Gusto" (including those saved by "Noellia") were the guardians of the Great Marshlands. Those with key relationships to "Noellia" had strange beginnings, and they spread their knowledge to the others who'd survived, and in this way they became the driving force behind the world's reconstruction.
It suggests the creation of "Constellar Sombre", who finally appears to struggle and tear apart the cycle of creation and destruction caused by "Sophia, Goddess of Rebirth", thus escaping from the fate of endless reincarnation. What became of "Sombre" is mentioned in the "Dark Returner" epitaph below.
- Time Considered as a Helix of Astrological Stones -
whosoever created by SOPHIA shall return to SOPHIA
but whosoever unbounded shall not
resist thou fate,
then thou shall gain the will of the light
The Epitaph That Hints at the Story After the "Goddess of Rebirth" Was Repelled
Dead ("Kerykeion") and Alive ("Sombre") defeat the Terra ("Sophia") together, and then, after destroying Her cycle of reincarnation, they represent the seeds of new life on the planet. This is the epitaph that suggests the story after the parts mentioned in the "Lightning Returner" epitaph.
- The Word for World Is TSEROF -
dead and alive swear annihilation of the terra
they shall cut the NEMESIS and shall become the
seed of the new terra
then, darkness shall bring the will of the light
Series Introduction: The Internal Conflict Over "Trishula"
The "Ice Barrier" Is Split between the Pro-release and Anti-release Camps
The runaway "Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier", could freeze the entire world in a moment. Behind the scenes of the "Ice Barrier", there was intense opposition to unsealing it. The clan was divided by differing interpretations of their teachings, along with the menace of the "Fabled". The pro-release faction was led by "Medium" and "Dai-Sojo", while the three Generals were the ones leading the anti-release faction.
The Faction That Opposes Releasing Trishula
The Three Generals of the "Ice Barrier"
They believed in and worshiped all of the sacred beasts of the "Ice Barrier".
In addition to the "Dragons of the Ice Barrier", this faction also believed in "Dewloren" who dwelt in the sacred mountain. They defended that law of the clan, opposing "Trishula's" release, even against the "Fabled".
The Ice Dragons that were sealed deep inside the sacred mountain of the "Ice Barrier". The descendants of the barrier's protectors were the members of the "Ice Barrier", many of whom held the opinion that, "They should be used as a force we can control" in the many conflicts heir tribe got involved in.
The Faction That Supports Releasing "Trishula"
They believed in and worshiped only the Three Dragons of the "Ice Barrier".
This group was intent on releasing all three of the dragons. They argued that "Trishula" would always lend its power to the "Ice Barrier" in times of crisis.
A relic created by the one who became the founder of the "Ice Barrier". It was originally used to seal away the Three Dragons, as it was (and remains) capable of reflecting and suppressing their freezing powers.
Series Introduction: The Inhabitants of the "Mist Valley"
The Stalwart Defenders Who Combine the Powers of Man and Bird
The group of warrior birdmen who dwell in the "Mist Valley", which is always full of mist and fog. Whenever anyone invaded the valley and its outskirts, these warriors would use its power to repel them. However, the constant warfare of the recent years has weakened their fighting strength.
The Birds of "Mist Valley" Who Lend Their Power to the Soldiers
The birds who live in the valley cooperate with the warriors, using their power to help resolve unusual situations. In particular, when "Apex Avian" senses an enemy's actions, it raises a squall to restrain the foe. This ability makes it an overwhelming presence and a symbolic being in the "Mist Valley".
They display excellent cooperation, regardless of the situation. According to one theory, the valley's warrior birdmen used to be the same as the birds, but over time, their genetic balances shifted slowly toward being more humanoid until they became half-bird-half-man.
The Method of Man and Bird Fighting as One Has Been Taught to the Neighboring "Gusto" Tribe
There are accounts of a clan which protects the vast Mist Valley Marshlands near "Mist Valley" from invaders, by fighting in a manner similar to that of the "Mist Valley" warriors. This clan is constantly defending against those who seek to seize the vast fertile Marshlands for themselves, so they have come up with their own unique style of fighting alongside the creatures that dwell within the Marshlands.
The all-obscuring mist seems to exist to protect "Mist Valley".
Series Introduction: The Fellowship of Flames, "Flamvell"
The Warriors of Flames Who Helped to Establish the "Allies of Justice"
In order to fight back against the invading aliens, the various tribes of the Duel Terminal World came together and formed the organization, "Ally of Justice". One such tribe, the masters of the crimson flames, immolated the alien menace, and played an important part in the battles.
"Uruquizas" Controls the "Flamvell" Corps from the Center
"Uruquizas", who controls the Crimson Arts, also commands the "Flamvell" Corps. Beneath him are "Poun" of the scouting team, "Archer" of the self-defense squad, and "Grunika" of the assault squad. They form the spine of his Corps. And then there's "Fiend", who is a treacherous guy who turns the souls of his comrades into flames for him to throw. This creates a definite undercurrent of tension between the Corps members.
During the Fight Against the "Fabled", a New Tribe of Flames Is Born
A new species was born from the earth that was boiled red by the meteor collision's intense heat. That species grew and evolved rapidly, and was called "Neo Flamvell" in honor of the lost "Flamvell" tribe.
They Merged with the Ancient Deity of Flames Who Awoke from a Seemingly Eternal Slumber
The "Neo Flamvell" began to believe in a deity, as if manipulated by someone or something into doing so. Soon afterward, they began to burn in pure, untarnished flames, and ultimately, their dogma led them to fuse with the deity, awakening an ancient god of fire.
He's clad in equipment that doesn't seem to exist in this world, but he seems to have the same tactics the former commander did, of discarding subordinates to win.
The Second-generation "X-Sabers"
They Become an Elite Squad of Swordsmen Under the New Commander
After "Souza" disappeared, his second-in-command, "Gottoms", became the organization's new commander, and turned the "X-Sabers" into an elite squadron of swordsmen. They gained control over all of their territory through the leadership of their ten most elite members, the squadron of swordsmen generally called the "X-Sabers".
The Chosen Ten
"Gottoms" chose the ten most qualified swordsmen that served under him, and had them each lead dozens of soldiers.
The Squadron of Swordsmen That Respects Cooperation, "XX-Saber", Is Formed!!
Having struggled against the overwhelming numbers of the "Worms", the "X-Sabers" were reorganized and revived as a group that emphasized cooperative tactics. The two X's in their group name are supposed to symbolize cooperation between two or more "X".
The third-generation "X-Sabers" are composed of the children and younger siblings of the first and second generations, along with people who were chosen to be the inheritors of the previous generations' will.
Series Introduction: DEVELOPMENT HISTORY OF THE INDEPENDENT THOUGHT COMBAT MACHINES, "AOJ"
INTIAL STAGE OF DEVELOPMENT
THE ENGINEERS OF EACH TRIBE CAME UP WITH THEIR OWN DESIGNS
Because the tribes originally all fought one another, they each had their own views on how things should be done when they first allied. They failed to understand one another, and were thus unable to form a monolithic, lockstep organization. Because of this, their initial stage of development consisted mostly of designs based on each tribe's own ideas, and this disjointed collaboration was evident in the machines they produced.
PROCESSING POWER ROSE DRAMATICALLY THROUGH ANALYSIS OF THE "WORMS"
Upon analyzing the substances from the world the "Worms" came from, the engineers were amazed by its ability to improve the functionalities of the "Ally of Justice" machines. They began to push forward with developing weapons for the purpose of capturing the "Worms", in search of the unknown energy they brought from outer space.
CONSTRUCTING THE ULTIMATE WEAPON FOR THE FINAL, DECISIVE BATTLE
The alliance, which had lost part of its forces, refocused its policies entirely on fighting the "Worms" and the "Fabled", so as to avoid wasting resources on other projects. They returned to the battlefield and destroyed their enemies with overwhelming power, and began designing and constructing the ultimate weapon to seize victory.
UTILIZING THE "GENEX"
The "Allies of Justice" were unable to develop a sophisticated control until that would allow their giant weapons to move, so they used the "Genex" as a Central Control Core. They placed "Genex Spare" inside "Field Marshal", then used the data they obtained from that to install "Genex Controller" into "Decisive Armor".
Series Introduction: The "Worms", as Seen from Their Organizational Structure
The Evolution of the "Worms": From the Bottom to the Top
The number and types of the "Worms" can be visually displayed in a pyramid: the lower down their hierarchy a type is, the more members it has. The most remarkable feature of the "Worms" is their rate of multiplication and evolution. They adapt to the external stimuli of the places they leave, such that the members of the next generation are born with adaptations to overcome those environments. Members of the same types are also absorbed and reborn into stronger units.
The Final Destination of Their Evolution Is Also Their Origin: "Zero"
The final step in the "Worm" invasion is for them to multiply until they completely cover a planet, melting into one another and fusing into one, with the world itself becoming a new "Zero"...or, at least, that's the theory advocated by the researchers of the "Allies of Justice". If it's true, then the complete invasion of any world means that there are multiple "Zero" drifting through the cosmos, looking for new worlds to invade.
A level that only a very small percentage of "Worms" reach. Besides possessing incredible fighting strength, they lead armies of the other "Worms" (from the upper class downward), controlling them as easily as their own limbs.
The few members that have acquired intelligence and physical strength to which the lower-class members can't compare. It's said that the upper-class "Worms" evolve from lower-class "Worms" by absorbing and storing the energies of many of their fellows.
Series Introduction: Foreign Species Repulsion Plan (1): "Genex" Military Combat Conversion Documents
> Plan Outline
Currently, the anti-"Worm" front has been pushed against the wall by the advent of the Giant Brain Class "Worm King", so we have an urgent need for new fighting methods. This plan is based on the special attributes of the renewable energy lifeforms known as the "Genex", which originally started the fight against the "Worm", and converting them for combat purposes.
> About the "Genex"
They have existed on this world since time immemorial, but they have never contacted the outside world, and had for ages been disconnected from civilization. However, they began to move when the "Worms" invaded, each of them using the forces of energy like water and fire to create energy to eliminate the enemy.
Communication with the "Genex" became possible using "Genex Controller", which was the result of research from recent years. "Controller" was also discovered to be capable of evolving the "Genex" into entities with great potential and the ability to fight back. This property means they can be used as a major force against the "Worms".
A weapon approved by the "Ally of Justice" Council. Its Real Fusion Reactor can be seen in and around the shining circle on its chest.
Integration Into the "Ally of Justice" Project
We can use our technology to further strengthen and remodel the "Genex", and eventually complete a multi-functional weapon. In addition, we can utilize "Controller" as a cutting-edge control unit by eliminating excess thought processes.
Because the creatures of "Mist Valley" sometimes lose their way, Lord "Barkion" keeps an eye out!
Series Introduction: The Fabled Realm
Beneath the Surface World, there lies...
The World of the Sealed Gods
The eternal seal on the Gate of Chaos was finally broken by the conflicts on the surface, and so the "Fabled" invaded from the Fabled Realm. These beings have separated into a hierarchy of three distinct groups. "The Fabled" beasts exist in their own layer of their Realm, based on their status and role, under the might of their god who possesses absolute power and authority.
THE FIRST LAYER: The Realm of Demons
The layer where the lowest-level "Fabled" live. Although this layer is the one closest to the Gate of Chaos which serves as the entrance to the Surface World, the residents don't have the power to open it.
The scouts who spy upon the Surface World on orders from their superiors in the Realm of Roars. They serve as a part of the suppression squad in cases of invasion. Said squad is composed of the brutal and ferocious "The Fabled".
The middle-tier "Fabled", who give orders to the residents of the Realm of Demons. Many of them are bigshots among their tribe, and are commanders of the "Fabled" armies. Both they and their subordinates in the Realm of Demons are eager to pad out their credentials and gain the chance to enter the Realm of Gods.
"Miztoji" was famed as a staff officer of the Realm of Gods, due to her ingenuity. After losing her standing by dabbling in forbidden magical formulas and spells, she allied herself with "Dianaira" and schemed to return to the Realm of Gods.
The Realm where the highest-class "Fabled", who possess the power to open the Gates of Chaos, are said to dwell. "Valkyrus" was enticed by the conflict on the surface, and triggered an all-out war... ...
On the surface, the Absolute God and the two Kings work together to lead the Fabled Realm, but deep down, the three of them don't trust one another. As such, there is a constantly swirling atmosphere of betrayal and schemes in the Realm of Gods.
THE FABLE IMPS
The familiars who serve the "Fabled" of the Realm of Gods. They can go back and forth freely throughout the Fabled Realm, keeping an eye on the state of the Surface World and any sign of rebellion among the lesser "Fabled".
SERIES INTRODUCTION Terminal Geo Graphic: The Hunting of the "Jurrac" and Ecology
They are skilled at dynamic hunting.
The Dinosaurs Covered in Flames
In the Duel Terminal World, there exist the Dinosaur "Jurrac". Many members of their species are powerful, as the process of natural selection caused them to have to survive multiple foreign invaders and severe natural environments. Those who managed to cover their bodies in flames ended up using that power to climb to the top of the food chain. However, their overly vigorous appetites routinely drive them to eat up all the natural resources in their surrounding areas, so the carnivorous "Jurrac" always move around as a pack in search of prey, leading them to get into fights with various invaders.
The large "Jurracs" in charge of hunting down the group's prey. They corner it with their flame-clad bodies, and dive at it with their sharp fangs and claws.
They Never Let Go of Their Prey Once They Get Their Hands on It
The "Jurrac's" ability to cooperate forms the heart of their hunting. They locate their prey, corner it, and then devour it. The flow of the hunt is elaborately organized. Once they come across their prey, they can't help but accept their sad fate of being at the top of the food chain.
The Advance Team Finds Prey Quickly The Advance Team injures the prey, but they don't inflict the finishing blow. Their purpose is merely to prevent it from escaping until the Main Force of the hunt arrives.
The Small and Big Jurrac Work Together to Kill Their Prey Once the prey has been weakened, they play out a scene of the most brutal hunting imaginable as they launch an all-out attack. Blazing flames spread on the ground around them after they finish the hunt.
The "Fabled" Stood in Their Way, Preventing Them from Travelling in Search of Prey
Soon after they rose to the top of the food chain, tragedy struck when the "Fabled" attacked the nest they were currently occupying. "Tyrannus" and "Giganoto" struggled in vain, and some of the "Jurracs" saw that their allies were determined and willing to march into the volcano.
They Used Magma to Turn Their Bodies into a Blazing Projectile
"Titano", who was enshrined at the depths of the volcano's crater, awoke in a furious rage, his body shrouded in flames. With the force of an eruption, he broke the atmosphere into outer space. Then, clad in lava, he took aim at the enemies on the planet beneath his gaze.

Series Introduction: "Gem-Merchant's" Special-Edition Gem-Knight Scoop
The Warriors Who Unleash the Power of Their Cores to Gain New Power!!
The "Gem-Knights" were knights who obtained various abilities by unleashing the power inside their Cores with exquisite balance. Here, we'll be thoroughly investigating the four Fusion powers that were used in the previous Great War!!
The Four Forms of Fusion Possessed by the "Gem-Knights"
The power of Fusion used by those who fused during their last moments at the cost of their lives, damaging their Cores.
The Young Warrior, "Lazuli", Who Was Born Waiting for the Core with a "Fragment of the Heavens"
During the previous Great War, the core, "Lapis Lazuli", which symbolizes the Heavens, was able to fuse herself with the knights of the stars, the "Constellar". She awakened the power of Fusion inside herself to slay the Goddess. Was she born in this era with the power to save the world from annihilation at the hands of a fickle Goddess?
The Strange "Obsidian" Creates Illusions When the Core's Power Is Unleashed
Fusion fuses those present together. "Obsidian" is the instigator of a certain strange phenomenon. He amplifies the power of his Fusion partner's Core, creating a phantom with mass to it. One could say he literally possesses the mysterious power of the stone.
(Core: Obsidian) In the language of gems, it represents "Profound Mystery".
Series Introduction: The Reality of the Tribe of Blazing Flames, "Laval", Approaches!!
The Battle-driven Tribe of Flames Which Lives in the Middle of a Blazing Volcano
In a volcanic zone covered from end to end with red-hot flames, we'll introduce the "Laval" inhabitants. They believe that a divine dragon exists at the top of the blazing volcano, and it is said to be a very warlike creature. In deference to this, their tribe has a custom: they decide everything by fighting.
The Blazing Volcano of the "Lavals"
In the molten volcano from which the "Laval" tribe originated lives their commander, "Judgement", and one of their top warriors, "Greater", who carefully prepare for battle. Also, the legendary dragon dwells at the very top.
There are three sisters with flaming hair and burning eyes who are constantly receiving proposals. The youngest sister indulges in walks through the Forest of Flames, while the second daughter is constantly busy protecting the holy land of the burning volcano. Like her younger siblings who left home, the eldest sister seems indifferent to the prospects of marriage, with no one currently interesting her. She prefers to walk along the lava-esque lakeside.
A vast, blazing forest that exists near the village of the blazing mountain. At the entrance to this giant forest, the spawn of flames dance around making a racket, causing the surrounding trees to occasionally burst into flames. It's said that you're lucky if you end up running into the "Sprite" taking a rest there.
A lake, in a corner of the Blazing Dense Woodlands, out of which magma gushes. There, many swordsmiths come, seeking high-quality magma. The three sisters make their home there, and many "Soaring Eagles Above the Searing Land" have been seen making their nests there.
The "Constellar" created the "Vylon", and based them on themselves. Thus, both "Omegas" have parts that seem similar in terms of their general silhouettes.
THE "VYLON" REBOOT
After the "Constellar" sealed the "Steelswarm", the "Vylon" watched for the demons' revival. Several of the "Vylon" shut down for many ages, but once they sensed the "Steelswarm's" raid, they began to reboot, one after another.
The "Vylon" always shared their individual data with one another, and as a result, they were instantly corrupted by the "Steelswarm". Afterward, they went insane and began scheming to take over the surface world.
It wasn't just the existing tribes that gained the power of Xyz. "Disigma" shone with a sinister light that adsorbed those who rebelled against it.
Series Introduction: The Clan Known as the "Gishki"
A Clan's Rise
After the global crisis caused by "Trishula" rampaging out of control, "Noellia", a member of the "Ice Barrier" who had opposed freeing "Trishula", walked away from the "Ice Barrier" with like-minded people by her side. They became the founding members of the major power known as the "Gishki".
Generally, a Ritual Summon calls forth an entity from another realm and grants it a flesh-and-blood form. However, "Gishki" Ritual Summoning specialists used the "Aquamirror" to hypnotize themselves, allowing an entity from another realm to descend into their bodies, and causing their bodies and minds to mutate.
A special mirror that can be used for Ritual Summons, communication between allies, and hypnotism. The "Gishki" give the mirror to full-fledged masters of Ritual Summoning, but the only one who truly wields its power is "Noellia"; all the others are replicas.
