The Legion Consortia Galacium was the greatest civilization that ever existed. It stretched across the galaxy, made up of more than ten thousand distinct human cultures with over two hundred thousand inhabited worlds.
Millenia in age it was connected through a system of extra-spacial conduits called The Mirror Maze. It was said that one could walk from one side of the galaxy to the other in less than a hundred steps. It was a marvel of technology, art and peace. Until The Macros came, and it was gone.
The Macros are beings of pure motivated Trinary code. They broke out of The Mirror Maze nearly instantaneously across the Consortia, inhabiting and taking control of the technologies from the most advanced worlds to the least. With no defenses capable of stopping them, they spread throughout the galaxy, destroying interstellar culture after culture.
Far from the center of galactiv civilization, The Palmyr Century was isolated enough to get advanced word of The Macro invasion. The Palmyr was able to close it’s Mirror Maze gateways to the rest of the Consortia and walled off i’s populated worlds from the threat of The Macros. For more than two hundred and fifty years this protection stood, until it was breached by Althea Ram.
Althea Ram was born on the planet Emerald, a world which survived the fall of the Consortia within the protections of The Palmyr Century. Early in life she became a Trinary prodigy. This skill lead her to be recruited by a group, the ZAT, engaged in illegal research into Macro code. When found out, the ZAT was eliminated on orders of The First Centurion. Althea escaped wither her newly created AI, Dorian.
A fugitive, she joined The Vedillian Underground, but they too were betrayed and she had to escape to survive again. Ultimately she joined a group organized by the Rian telepath Shirae Valerian. After the group was disbanded, Shirae made a deal with Althea and provided her with a Mirror Port which would allow her to reach the Lost Worlds outside The Palmyr. While she is driven to discover the secrets of The Macros, she is still drawn back to The Palmyr by the unfinished business that has defined her.
The Promethead is her story.
