All paths inevitably spiral towards a single point: the crossroads of fate.

The destinies of many intertwine with the fate of one, and a single action knocks a piece of the puzzle into exactly the right place to turn what was only random chaos into a complete picture. Like the tipping of a single domino that, by tumbling into others, crumbles hours of careful planning. Is it madness to think that one man can influence so many lives? Could he have possibly known that by throwing Sable through that portal at that exact instant would hurtle Kizara into chaos?

Perhaps...


It was by this act that Sable landed, not in the cold vacuum of space, but on a ship. With that one instant of decision, he changed the fates of many.

Ella, with the peculiar gift of sight, the Silent Raikor, the crew of the Grudge Bearer, Scarlett and Astaroth, even the denizens of the Parador floating helplessly through the warp would have missed one another if not for that one act. In that moment of chaos, the creature known as Quiet capitalized and gently directed the chosen together.

Diplomacy landed Gabriel and the Parador a potential home, and Raikor's long sought redemption, and though the creatures of chaos attempted to untwist their fates, they were foiled by the valor of a mysterious being who's identity I cannot yet reveal... and just like an ephemeral wind, she was gone. Elias made a second peculiar act: he allowed anyone who wished to join the crew of the Parador. It was this that finally united these chosen. It makes me wonder how much this man actually knows, and if he yet has more to contribute to this story.

Ella, who was wracked with indecision, possibly believing that continuing on was the path of the madness that consumed her mother let herself be left behind. Paralyzed by fear, unable to act, fate passed her by... but I believe she still has a part to play.

Great festivities were planned on the Parador and the past of the enigmatic Astaroth is finally revealed. He is an astropath from a faraway star pushed to the brink by the horrors of war. He fails to protect the wife of Gabriel and his love, loyalty, and trust are betrayed by rage... wounded and dying, a chance meeting with Scarlett changes his fate... or was this his fate to begin with? How did she arrive there? Questions are answered, but more still remain, and this Claymore organization becomes more of a fascinating mystery to me but two hearts are mended. Gabriel and Astaroth bury a centuries old hatchet but all is still not well.

An old enemy has laid his sights on the Parador, seeing a powerful new asset to aid his cause, and with the ship in the midst of celebration, he takes his opportunity to act. Their fates are now sealed: the inhabitants of the void cathedral have been pulled into the schism that drives conflict between Imperial and Exile whether they wish it or not. Sable and Jericho are struck down, and the machinations of Seiryn are like a finely tuned clock: things continue to fall into place for him, even being held up by Scarlett does little to slow his plan. Exile, Kizaran, Draconin, Ursalore, and Human are all on a collision course that could decide the fate of this quaint little corner of the universe.

And yet... I feel that one piece of the puzzle is still... missing...
