Earth, cradle of life. Forgotten in all but the apocryphal scriptures of the anti-technology Universal Sectus church of the Galactic Imperium, it’s home primarily to billions of humans, a few thousand Parahumans, a small envoy of a moon-based race known as the Lunari and a number of inter-dimensional and alien refugees.
The earth appears to be under the protection of a number of alien races for reasons unknown, and is currently being used as a sort of ‘refugee camp’ for a small number of alien offspring.
On earth, the vast majority of humans are only aware of a few races outside of their own, due to several attempted (and thwarted) invasions by the aggressive races known as the Ka’Hadan, as well as the hive-like Chaldathans. Both threats were stopped by Parahumans working in concert with one-another as ‘superheroes’, a designation new to general public perception in the latter half of the 20th century AD.
First earth’s native denizens (and it’s moon and outer solar system’s planets) are collectively known by the greater galactic community as Terrans. The Sol System is located in Sector Alpha Meridian, on the Orion Spur of the Sagittarius Arm of the Milky Way Galaxy.
The true history of Earth is one mostly unknown to the majority of its inhabitants, having long forgotten the origins of its special features, namely, the mutagenic properties of the planet that produce Parahumans, the presence of potent magic, and inter-dimensional gates protected by a mostly secret caste of sorcerers known as the Gatekeepers. Drawing upon resources from these, and the presence of a number of powerful Primmortal artifacts, the Terrans are poised to enter the larger galaxy via a jump gate found at the edge of their solar system, yet scouting parties from the Galactic Imperium have already attempted to breech the gate and so there is a stalemate, as Terran forces work to destroy any invading forces as fast as possible so that the Imperium is unable to return knowledge of their findings.
