Six Solars, all fleeing the trauma and fear of their Exaltations.

Six Solars, brought to the King of Serpents to learn from his wisdom.

Six Solars, inheritors to a legacy they never asked for, never wanted, never sought.

Nontheless, it will seek them out, and they can but pray to be prepared for it. In the small village of Mahanaga, they learn to wield their blazing white-hot Essence, mastering the most potent power in all of Creation.

Will they use this power to uplift Creation to the glories of ages past?

Or will their hands be the hands that finally cast Creation into the darkness forever?

Only they can decide.
