Introduction



Lorien Legends



The First Great Expansion

The war began during the quartermoon celebration on the planet. The first part of the attack consisted of bombing the planet with missiles and destroying several locations where lots of loric were at that moment. Some of these locations include the Chimæra nightclub, the spires of Elkin, the lorien defence academy. It is also known that before the attack, the Mogadorians disabled the grid by shooting large violet beams of energy in the sky. Unknown to the loric at first, the beams were draining the grid's power systems so that the grid would not function on the day of the invasion. The reason that the mogs could land so easily was because of the Loric their own mistake. Since it was near the quartermoon festival, the Loric believed that the violet beams were actually signs of the beginning of the quartermoon but unbeknownst to them it were signs to their doom. When the first missle barrage ended the mogs landed a part of their ground troops and beasts on the service to begin the attack. Shortly after they landed a second wave of missles came and even more ground troops touched down on the service. The loric fought extremely bravely but hardly stood a chance because they were unprepared and caught completely by surprise. It took the mogs 3 days to exterminate all life on the planet and turned lorien from a beautiful paradise into a wasteland. Two ships made it off the planet. The first holding nine Cêpan, nine Garde, a Chimæra known as Hadley, and a pilot and the other carrying the final member of the Garde, Ella, her surrogate Cêpan, Crayton, two others and many Chimæra. The Garde were destined to become the next generation of Elders and are hoped to return to Lorien one day and repopulate.


The War

The war progressed with the Mogadorian's winning at every corner. It seemed hopeless for the bonded young council members as they lost three of their nine. When the fourth in the chain stepped up, the war turned for the Loric. There were fatalities, heart break, sorrow, and joy. In the end, the loric that began with nine in their numbers, ended with five. Four took his place as the high elder and things resumed the way they did before the First Great Expansion.


The Second Great Expansion

It's been one hundred years to Lorien, ten for the earthlings. Lorien was prospering with the one that everyone called John Smith as their leader. It was the same night, the night of the quartermoon celebration that the Mogadorians returned with a vengeance. A descendant of the one and only Setrákus Ra stepped forth to take up his position as the leader of the murderous race. Unbeknownst to the loric however, this Mogadorian was ten time for powerful than his ancestor, and ten times more desperate for the resources that Lorien had replenished over the years. The loric were again ambushed and fought longer and harder, surviving for two weeks before they were defeated yet again. They still have one hope though. Ever since the loric's first experience on earth, John Smith kept a good connection with his friends and allies on the planet. The young council was sent there yet again to hide in the massive and growing population of the earthlings. With the new children, the ten Cêpan take their charge with them and separate with their bag of rare loric jewels and little to no hope.

The Loric

The Loric are the sentient species from the planet Lorien. Loric closely resemble humans, to the point that humans cannot tell the difference between a Loric and a human. Unlike the Mogadorians they do not possess distinct features that would make them stand out amongst ordinary humans. There are two different types of people within the Loric species, the Garde and Cêpan. There also seems to be only one language among the Loric people, although they curiously speak English as well. Since they have visited Earth many times and aided in its development, English may have come from the Loric resulting in their ability to speak it.

Loric are a monogamous race, generally falling in love only once and staying with that person for the rest of their life, often starting a family with that person. However, there are the occasional Loric who fall in love with another person. Marriages occur with the Loric commonly around the ages of twenty-five to thirty-five. Marriages on Lorien have nothing to do with law or papers as they do on Earth; they are based more on promise and commitment.

When a Garde child is born, he or she are raised by their grandparents. It is unknown whether they are raised by their maternal or paternal grandparents. The purpose of them to be raised by the grandparents and not their parents is that their parents must have time to hone and strength their legacies. Soon after the time they become married and have children of their own, they are able to see their parents again. Not all parents follow this rule, as characterized by Number Four's father, who always visited his son.

The Loric are a very harmonious and happy race, that very rarely get into conflict with each other or other planets. Another important Loric culture is the Quartermoon, a festive period celebrating the Original Elders and their discovery of the Phoenix Stones which gifted the planet with abundant resources and gave the Garde their powers.

The Garde

The Garde are the Loric citizens of Lorien that possess Legacies. All Garde are endowed with superhuman strength, speed, reflexes (agility), endurance, and durability, which they are born with and hone as they continue to mature into adulthood. From an early age, they are separated from their parents and are raised by their grand parents and assigned Cêpan. At the age of Eleven they are taken to training academies where they work with their Cêpan to monitor and develop their legacies. The Garde with the greatest potential attend an academy program at the Lorien Defence Academy itself. The Garde are known as the defenders of Lorien.

The last remaining Garde in existence escaped from the second Mogadorian Invasion of Lorien and fled to Earth where they currently reside, waiting to develop their Legacies and come together to avenge their planet. The 10 Garde that escaped lorien, they are believed that they have the Legacies of the 10 elders, including the 4 slain ones.

Legacies are the supernatural powers given as gifts to Loric citizens known as the Garde. These are developed as the Garde matures. Each Garde receives several Legacies, which primarily focus on defense and purity, as the Legacies are meant to be used in the defense of Lorien.

Generally the most powerful Legacy is usually developed last- it is known as the "Master Legacy" and is combat-focused. Each Garde has more advanced abilities in terms of strength and speed than any human and all receive the same Telekinesis legacy at some point (usually after the first Legacy).

Legacies are what the Garde use to protect their planet, compared to Cêpan who are more academically and intellectually gifted.

The Cêpan

Cêpan, are a subspecies of the Loric species who do not possess Legacies. The Cêpan are responsible for running Lorien. They are also responsible for helping the Garde to develop, control and master their Legacies.

After the genocide on Lorien by the hostile race of Mogadorians, the Cêpan assigned to the chosen Garde travelled to earth with them. Once on the planet, they separated with their Garde child and set out on their mission to protect and train them.
