| KEY ASPECTSVIATRIX CODRIS
THE SHARDS OF CODRIS
|The Holy Mother of Knowledge. The divine figure that met its tragic end by the very same beings entrusted her with the heavenly knowledge in order to lead mankind to its enlightenment. Nowadays, her standing in history was controversial at best - some believed she is a heretic for going against the Gods despite her intentions, while others see her as a tragic messianic figure unjustly punished by the divine beings.|
Pure, selfless, full of love, and yet wise beyond even the wisest men of this era could imagine, Viatrix was the epitome of messianic figure. She was specifically chosen by the Heavens because of her unusual quality that allowed her to withstand the godly powers granted to her both physically and mentally. However, how she managed to possess such power was beyond mystery, especially since she allegedly looked no different from any ordinary, unassuming girl from the outside.
Because of her wisdom, Viatrix understood very well the limits of her knowledge; she was aware that she was not omniscient and that some things would remain forever unknown to her. It was said that she could’ve gained accessed a much higher degree of knowledge with the privilege granted to her, and yet, she chose not to, stating that it would only “destroy herself”.
THE ORDER OF CODRIS
|In a desperate attempt to let her knowledge to live on so mankind can continue to prosper, Viatrix used her last remaining strength to plant her knowledge inside a divine crystal supposedly taken from the “origin of all knowledge”. However, because the ritual was botched by the Heavens themselves, the crystal became cursed and destroyed both itself along with many people participating in the ritual. It was said that shall the crystal reappear in front of mankind, its mere presence shall bring nothing but ruin as the Heavens’ punishment for mankind’s hubris.|
Although it was destroyed during the day of Viatrix’s death, there are plenty of people who believe the crystal survived through its shards, and as such, countless parties have been on hunt of the shards for Heaven knows how long. So far, four notable parties are on the hunt of the shards: the Juilesc Empire, the cult that goes against The Spirit Mother’s teaching in Kuon, various mafias and triads, and the Order of Codris. And shall one of them finally gains any of the shards, it will become a mere matter of time before the world will either be saved and return to its age of prosperity or revert to the age of chaos…
|A secret organization formed by the descendants of Viatrix’s most loyal followers, who had made it their mission to retrieve the surviving shards of her knowledge and prevent misuse of it by any ambitioning parties. In addition, they have been fighting endlessly for the restoration of her name in history. |
In the past few decades, the birth of the cult that attempts to ‘resurrect’ Viatrix as well as Juilesc Empire’s increasingly aggressive search on the Shards of Codris have made things difficult for the Order, what is it with the espionages attempted on them by the competing parties. And that still doesn’t include those who side with none of them except themselves…
|When Viatrix sensed that her lifespan was about to expire, she decided to pass on her vast knowledge and wisdom by placing them inside a crystal relic. The Heavens warned her that no human after her would be able to wield such vast power. However, Viatrix didn’t listen, and as such, the Heavens decided to forsake and curse her and her knowledge.|
It was not like Viatrix was unaware just how dangerous the sheer amount of knowledge she possessed was; after all, if it not for the fact she was fully aware just how destructive the divine knowledge was, she would’ve used the privilege granted on her to access the powers of higher degree than she already had. As such, she devised a plan to ensure the knowledge inside the crystal wouldn’t fall into the hands of the unworthy - that is, by creating a Guardian Spirit that serves to test whoever tries to access the knowledge inside the crystal. How the Guardian Spirit was created and its exact duty, however, was unknown.
Unfortunately, because of the curse placed by the Heavens, the supposedly benevolent yet wise Guardian Spirit became the epitome of malevolence and mankind’s path to destruction from their greed of power. When the crystal was destroyed and became the Shards of Codris, said corrupted being was also separated into numerous entities tied with each shard. Because of their pitch-black appearance, these fragmented entities are only known as “Dark Beasts”.
While numerous observations had shown that the Dark Beasts’ appearance may serve as indicator of the shards’ location, their tendency to go on rampage means they cannot be reliably ‘used’ to pinpoint the shards’ exact location. After all, much remains unknown regarding the Dark Beasts to this day, and no one has acquired any strong proof to deny the possibility of the Beasts’ number being larger than the number of the actual shards...
