Previously
A deadly virus affecting both organics and robotics swept the northern sectors of the Galaxy, sparking a war between the afflicted and the remaining factions. After nearly a year of defensive battles and co-ordinated operations, the war finally ended at the Battle of Ruin. The end of the war saw increased relations between the GSU, Imperium and Santori as they all agreed on a two year ceasefire to mend the damages caused by the crisis.

After these two years the factions signed the Santori Accords, an agreement proclaiming their united efforts to uphold Celestial law, including the protection of innocent life in case of another galactic threat. Following this meeting the Highrock Clans decided to join the Santori Protectorate, expanding their territory by almost double.

Galactic Date
Whilst each planet has their own personal Dates and Times, most of them adhere to the Galactic Standard Calendar when communicating with eachother.

Current Events
The Reich, a returning faction of magic-haters, resurface and initiate a purge of the planet Ordriey, destroying it entirely in the process. This event has made all of the Major Factions uneasy, even though each of them has bigger concerns of their own. Not only are there issues for these powers to deal with, but more factions are rising from the ashes of the Helix War, populating the galaxy once again.

Meanwhile, the Celestial Architect Sam'anar has discovered a way to reverse large parts of the Convergence, sending back many of the planets it had brought into the galaxy. Whilst this move has saved many from unwanted threats, it has also shifted the layout of the galaxy drastically. Because of this, new star-charts have been drawn out with Hyperlanes, allowing them to show the quickest and safest routes between planets.

FEBRUARY, 2571

A few seconds after they stepped through the portal, Sebastian alongside Natasha, Valeryie, Tagon and Dakora found themselves standing upon the surface of Phoenixspire. Although... it was completely different from what anyone would remember it.

Buildings had sustained heavy structural damage, some having collapsed entirely even. The streets mere a mess of corpses of both the planet's residents and the demonic creatures that had invaded it.

Fires burned away at whatever or whoever had been unfortunate to catch themselves alight during the chaos and the few that had survived were scurrying here and there, trying mostly in vain to find people that may have survived and lifting rubble off corpses in order to carry them away.

"My God..." Sebastian said, in complete shock.
"It's so much worse than... than Chiron. And Nightblood." Natasha said, her tone matching his. Sebastian gazed past all the buildings and looked at the main city's castle. Where Jaya resided. From this distance he could still see that the castle itself had received some damage in the fight, though it was thankfully standing still.

"Come on," Sebastian ushered everyone as he began to walk through the corpse-strewn streets towards the castle. "We need to find Jaya."

The invasion had ended, but not without heavy cost. Earth was in a complete state of chaos even after the combined efforts of both the GSU Army and Supernatural Knights, as well as the civilian population managed to pinpoint the origin of and destroy the portals.

Some had managed to personally reach the "bunkers" and destroy them, while other more densely invaded areas had to resort to more drastic measures. The few reports that were received told of weapons of mass destruction being used to wipe out demonic invasions that had become too big to contain, consequentially also taking the lives of thousands of civilians in the process.

Worldwide, it was now chaos. People's residencies had been completely destroyed and the military, with no real way to communicate had to resort to rudimentary radio technology to communicate. Despite this, they were all still scattered and struggling to coordinate their efforts to rescue the injured and stabilise the situation. With most of the GSU's technology shutting down, contact with the other colonies went dark.

The GSU was for all intents and purposes, on the brink of complete and utter collapse.

---------------------------------------------------------

The doors to the Knight's Acacdemy's communications room slammed open as Gavin, followed closely by Solaris and Gelinda entered into the room. Gelinda wasted no time in attending to the central table's holographic controls and trying to establish a connection with the other Knights across GSU space.

"Thank God this still works." Gelinda sighed as she frantically typed at the keyboard. Solaris watched her as Gavin began to pace around the room, clearly in thought.
"So that's all of our tech just... suddenly not working anymore?" Solaris asked.
"Not all of it," Geinda replied. "Mostly starships and military vehicles, as well as radio communications arrays. Fortunately, Knights use different technology than the GSU. I'm just thankful that we're able to get something working."

Solaris looked up at Gavin.
"Any idea what could have caused this?" Gavin looked at him, his frown not disappearing.
"Any luck?" He asked Gelinda, completely ignoring Solaris's question.
Gelinda looked up at him and then back down at the table. "I'm getting reports of casualties across all of GSU territory. Some colonies suffered worse than others. Actually... just Earth and Phoenixspire. The rest had it relatively easy compared to us."

Gavin paused in his pacing.
"Did you just say, Phoenixspire?"

Tagon immediately felt ill upon leaving the portal, he had yet to get used to teleportation and portals and the like. But when he actually took a look at his surroundings he felt even sicker. Buildings had sustained heavy structural damage, some having collapsed entirely even. The streets mere a mess of corpses of both the planet's residents and the demonic creatures that had invaded it.

Fires burned away at whatever or whoever had been unfortunate to catch themselves alight during the chaos and the few that had survived were scurrying here and there, trying mostly in vain to find people that may have survived and lifting rubble off corpses in order to carry them away.

Obviously Tagon assumed Phoenixspire didn't always look like this, but with all the destruction..he couldn't have even imagined what it could have possibly looked like before. Dakora was equally as solemn and both Tagon and the demon nodded as they agreed to go in search of Jaya.

"I can't believe how bad this must have been.." Natasha pondered out loud. "There's so much death, so much destruction." Her voice trailed off before she cleared her throat. "We should have been here."

Sebastian glanced at her for a second. "There's no way we could have known." He replied. "Not until it was too late."

Valeryie observed the corpses that lay around the streets. While she didn't have the words to express it, a great pit of anger began to develop in her chest. These were families, communities that lost their lives today. Whoever that was responsible for these attacks deserved to die.

They neared the castle's gates and saw that they had also been destroyed. Sebastian quickened his pace, as did everyone else through the entrance and into the building itself, hoping to locate Jaya inside.

Gavin left Solaris and Gelinda inside the Knights Academy to take a quick walk outside. He wanted again to observe the damage that had been dealt by the invasion. To gain a understanding of how heavy the scales were.

He gazed at everything, ranging from the corpses to the complete utter destruction that littered the streets. Looking around, Gavin knew that this planet would not survive another attack. If they were once again invaded, Earth would fall. And no one would survive.

He watched as rescue teams and emergency services struggled and tried their best to save those who were injured. A child who was separated from his parents ran to hug them, all three of them crying both out of relief and horror of what had just happened.

For a moment Gavin put himself in the child's shoes. Being separated and terrified just by their mere absence. He knew what it was like to lose both. Except he didn't know the joy, nor the relief of being reunited with them like this boy did.

Gavin wondered what it would be like, to still have them around. He missed them, admittedly. Missed the distinct smell of the perfume his mum always wore, with her loving embrace. He missed his dad's upbeat and jolly nature, and those barbecues they always used to hold for the entire neighbourhood.

That was all gone now.

"Hey Gavin!" Solaris called from inside. "We've got Phoenixspire!" Gavin shook the thoughts away from his head and blinked a couple of times. He wiped his eyes with his fingers and thumb before turning away from the scene and walking back into the academy.

Tagon looked around at the carnage of it all and both anger and sorrow settled in him, he had seen many wars and the devastation it left behind. He had hoped that he would never have to see such carnage again, but appeared that was not in the cards for him. He couldn't stomach looking at the younger corpses and the destroyed houses around him, instead choosing to focus on the task at hand.

When he saw the destroyed gates he quickened his pace along with everyone else, his hands curled tight into fists. He hoped his granddaughter was still alive, he wanted to meet her and he especially didn't want to be the one to tell his daughter that her daughter had been killed.

As the group proceeded up the castle path they were met quickly by four Omega Legionnaires, their armour decorated with the crest of the phoenix, labelling them as Jaya's guard. At first they raised their guns at the group, but quickly enough they recognised they were friendly, and lowered their weapons with a nod.
"The Queen is this way." The front Legionnaire spoke, gesturing for the group to follow them into the half-ruined castle.

They all made their way winding through cracked and deformed corridors, the walls covered in the blood and remains of both mortals and demons. Whatever battle had occurred seemed to have come to a very hectic conclusion with the castle's corridors. Large burn marks could be seen around the edges of stone and the outlines of corpses, for those who inspected closely enough.

Eventually they found the throne room, which instead of being laid out for ceremony was now made into some makeshift war room. A long weathered table sat out in the middle with officials gathered around it, while the entirety of the rest of the room was covered in medical beds, over which healers were tending to the few remaining soldiers and civilians.

"Duarte." Jaya addressed the approaching soldier formally, becoming visible herself as the officials around the table stood aside to show her at it's head. "Is it true? Has everywhere been hit by..." Her eyes darted around to the injured for a moment. "This?"

Sebastian attached his rifle to his back when he saw Jaya.
"Affirmative ma'am. I'm sorry, it looks like you had the worst of it." He sympathised. Natasha stepped forward. "The same can be said for Earth. Our radios are mostly out of commission, but we found that Knight technology is still operational."

The three soldiers walked towards the table. "We need to gain some semblance of communication with the other colonies." Natasha went on. "Perhaps contacting every other Knight outpost across GSU space will provide everyone with some help in maintaining a comprehensive line of communication between each planet. Make everything easier for everyone."

Sebastian looked at Natasha and back at Jaya, before nodding. "If you are busy, then we could do it ourselves. That's if you allow us to."

Tagon's body tensed up upon being greeted by the Omega Legionnaires with weapons raised, already prepared to fight them if need be when they lowered their weapons upon deeming and or recognizing them as friendly. As they were lead to the Queen anticipation roiled through Tagon, she had no idea what she would look like. Did she look more like her mother? More like her father? Did she have her mother's death stare? He didn't know much about her father despite him living at the castle for a little while, the man seemed apprehensive towards him, so he probably couldn't identify any personality traits of his in Jaya.

His thoughts were half on the Queen and half on the deformed corridors they went down. Blood splattered, rubble, burn marks, it looked like hell had gone down throughout these walls. Eventually they were lead to what he could assume used to be the throne room, but had now been fashioned into a makeshift war room and medical wing which was something he recognized from previous wars and battles he had been apart of.

Once they approached and the officials moved or raised their heads Tagon just sort of stopped when he saw her, enough so that Dakora nearly bumped into him and gave him a scowl before moving around him. He still thought she shouldn't have come, she was a demon and many planets had just been thoroughly attacked by demons. But he just sort of stared at Jaya with this almost awestruck/dumbstruck expression. That was his grand daughter. He never thought he would see the day where someone held that title.

She looked more like her father than she did her mother, what with the dark black hair. She had heard she went by Veilsong now, and that she had never gone by Youngblood. He had also heard there was a fair amount of strain between Jaya, Dan and Kitty that Kitty had only vaguely explained. It took him another moment or two to shake the expression from his face and tune back into the conversation just as Dakora spoke up. "Establishing a connection with Nightblood should be a high priority to double check if the tech is working. We might have been hit but the battle didn't last nearly as long or cause as much damage as here or Earth. If the tech works then we can start reaching out to other planets, your Grandfather can send the message to your Aunt."
