its said that the world was shaped of stardust, solar rays, moonbeams and the concentrated will of the almighty
; an unseen, ethereal force that's responsible for all life on this planet and every other planet that may be out there.
elion, a land once ruled supremely by kingdoms built by every discernible species that called the planet home. as the world turned and the centuries bore on, the order began to rise to power. lead up by a formerly fallen warrior from the ruined planet of valhalla, julian cross, the order began to divide the world into sections for their own personal gain. this forced many of the species into states of oppression, cutting back much of the territory they could lay claim to. "graciously", cross has granted them the ability to still run their respective societies, as a "show of good faith". those that support him are well compensated and protected, and those that oppose? well, oftentimes they're never seen again.
his first order of business was to cut civil rights to all those that bore no social standing, the second was to establish drug trades, weapons dealing, and the black arts. he gathered a large group of guards for himself full of heavily trained and armed soldiers whose soul purpose is to make sure everyone is being properly oppressed and forced into working something akin to slave labor. he's also in the business of breeding dangerous animals to use for sport and revenue, but also for protection from the 'terrorists'. his army is lead up by his four generals and their captains. loupe, his right hand man; sunchaser, the leader of his slave trade; mercier, the mistress of the coliseum; and lee, the leader of his drug trafficking business.
for thirty years things have been bleak. in that time, ashley chevalier (a long-time friend of cross') helped form a group that she would dub simply the resistance to combat cross and his twisted ideals. the resistance is determined not to let their homeland go down without a fight, and they're striving to get the world clean once more; to overthrow cross and once more become a free country. obviously, things aren't going to be simple and things have not gone smoothly. ashley chevalier's body was found five years ago, charred almost beyond recognition and tossed into the river.
from there, her two co-leaders took over the rebellion, both as leaders, but both divided by their own wants for the country. paradis wants to restore elion to its former glory, to once more spread the belief of their almighty and make sure said religion is upheld. nejem, on the other hand, thinks that cross has done some good for the world and, without someone to run the trades he's established, elion will be reduced to shambles; not to mention the revenue that cross' black arts farming has amassed.
foxfyre hasn't always existed in pixis, but it was built up by ashley chevalier to begin training citizens (from the young to the old) to become warriors to help in her resistance and to, one day, combat cross and the order. upon her death, the ownership of the school she built there temporarily went to paradis and nejem until the day when they could find her son, deimos, to take over where she left off. upon his father's death, deimos went digging and found the school. now thrown into a world that he never knew his parents were invested in, he's tasked with being the headmaster of the school and official third leader of the resistance.
the world is caught in the midst of a civil war, but propaganda and fear-mongering keep most people in the dark. when push finally comes to shove, the results will undoubtedly be explosive. when that time comes, the only thing you can do is pray for mercy.
