The Metaplot

The metaplot of The Wake is the reason we made this wiki. It's crazy.

Note that this is not a summary of the entire game, but just the events directly pertaining to the Devas and whatnot. Stuff will be skimmed over.

The Deva War

(Before reading this, we suggest you read the article "Devas" and the other articles associated with it.)

Long ago, cities like Nautilus existed in the hundreds. Wakened appeared all over the place, learned how to bend, ascended, blah blah blah. Then, for some reason, they stopped showing up. This threw everything out of whack. The Devas were at a total loss on what to do. I'm gonna stop here and let Allison's poem take it.

Now in poem form
Once upon a time
As far as the eye could see
On the whole, existed nothing
And someone said "This shouldn't be"

So from the nothing came something
And from that, something more
Until at last we had a universe
And thus was written, Deva lore

And for a time things flourished
Worlds were made and songs were sung
People grew and people ascended
Until suddenly, it was undone.

"There are no wakened!" cried the Devas
"And our numbers dwindle by the day"
And thus was held a meeting
To prevent the multiverse's decay

And all the Angelii, all the Devas
The Ashuras and the Wake'd
Couldn't come to an agreement
To prevent the worlds unmaked.

And Isis stood up in regal beauty
With violet eyes shining bright
And determined what was happening
Wasn't worth their awful fright.

"This is no great tragedy!" she said
"Who cares what happens to this place?
"At least it will be neat and ordered,"
Thus the social Darwinist made her case.

Fascism not taken lightly,
A young Deva took the stand
Her name was Cyrus, and she spoke;
Our lives lay in her hand

She proclaimed she'd make a city
Where the wakened could grow and thrive
Her haven would be called Nautilus
And she'd keep us all alive

She took with her two Ashura
One was Aaron, one was Jin
And promptly made her fabled city
And thus our saga did begin.

One by one we were called to Waken
One by one we all awoke
And by and large the Deva agreed
She'd gathered one fucked-up bunch of folks

Together we make up Nautilus
And our numbers grow by the day
Our species, races, creeds are diverse
We're the universal strays

But working together we make a difference
With every new day more exciting
Perhaps we COULD save the multiverse
If we'd just stop fucking fighting

The poem is slightly inaccurate, but it's a fun way to illustrate the point. Ameras was the Deva who stood up to his twin, Isis, and he led a revolt against the established order. Many Deva were unmade, some simply went back to sleep. In the end, the war left only three Deva standing: Solaris, Isis, and Cyrus. For his crimes, Ameras's power was chained and he was forced to become an Ashura to Cyrus, as Aaron.

Nautilus

As the poem illustrates, Cyrus took her two Ashura and made Nautilus. Then, instead of letting the Wakened come to her, she Called them, and they awoke. The new awakened were obviously confused, concerned, and in some cases, angry. Cyrus explained much of what was going on as best she could without ruining the mystery.

In May 2009, Starscream murdered Cyrus and took her power. She was unmade completely, unable to return as is usual in Nautilus. Starscream tried to rule the city, but after only a week ended up batshit insane and inside the Labyrinth. He met Mare there, who could have been Cyrus but wasn't (just another possibility) and she helped him escape.

In July 2009, the timeshift event left Aaron stuck to a glass tree. He revealed that he was from a future in which his twin Isis had come to Nautilus and remade everything to her desires. Isis longed for order in the universes, for things to be under her control. While the time-shift lasted, Aaron warned everyone of Isis's imminent arrival.

In August 2009, Solaris parked his city next to Nautilus and announced he was stealing Aaron. With Cyrus gone and Isis on her way, a Deva was needed to protect the city. Solaris took Aaron to the Labyrinth to once again become Ameras, leaving his own Ashura and Jin in charge. Which didn't really help.

In September 2009, Isis showed up. She promised rewards to those who would follow her, and death to those who opposed. Some people, like Katherine and Tony Stark, went along with her. (Starscream did too, but he had a plan.) Debates raged among the Wakened as to what to do, and somewhere around this time, Jin disappeared. So did a lot of people. Thomas Jefferson was unmade, and several people were turned to glass.

But then Starscream blew himself up trying to kill Isis, and as she bent herself back together, the inhabitants of Nautilus rushed to take down her, her Ashura, and her brainwashed followers. Those who had been glassed were restored. In the end, Isis fled the city, leaving her Ashura behind. Neriae, Antovil, and Kergan were cured of Isis's brainwashing, and stuck around to be awesome.

In October 2009, Isis unmade Jin.

In January 2010, Solaris and Ameras went to the City of Glass. They returned severely injured—Isis's creatures had attacked them. Ameras warned the city that they would soon have to storm the City and stop Isis. He also asked the existing Ashura which of them desired to walk the Labyrinth. Neriae and Kergan accepted, and both became Deva.

In February 2010, an obscenely long list of characters went to the City of Glass to get rid of Isis once and for all. The assault was a massively epic three-day log. Several people died, including Axel, Starscream, Terra Markov, America, and V. Isis was defeated and (seemingly) unmade, and everyone returned home.

From then on, everything slowly went into a downward spiral. (At least, that was what it looked like for the cynics.)

Especially when a Dark Aeon decided to up and appear out of nowhere to eat the darn city. TWICE. But that was that.

However, during the second untimely visit of the Dark Aeon — circa May 2012 — it was accompanied by Pyramid Head and Xemnas. Both were hopped up on leftover Isis juice provided by a third party. Things got messy, but the Wakened ultimately succeeded in destroying the Dark Aeon by weakening and finally Unmaking it out of existence.

Fast-Forward to September 2014. The Labyrinth makes a reappearance, causing major cases of sleep deprivation. Ursaems, the Deva of Renewal, calls the Wakened to arms against the Labyrinth creature. Much debate went on between parties, but in the end, most of the Wakened went with the Deva to see things through.

…Except not everything was as it seemed.

Agents of Entropy

January 2014- October 2014

Hello, My Friend

A Deva named Ursaems arrived in Nautilus during this time of peace and complacency, searching for his old home city of Kalliste. He introduced himself as a doctor and as the Deva of Renewal.

The other Deva welcomed him, overjoyed to find that he had not perished in the War. Antovil and Klement were especially glad as they had all been close friends in the old days.

Ursaems quickly became a well-liked part of the Nautilus community due to his kind and familiar nature though some - such as Lelouch, Sideswipe, and Michael Trinity - found him too friendly for their liking and had their reservations about him.

A Poisonous Personality

Ursaems settled in the South, helping and bonding with Wakened. One particular rowdy Angelii, however, was particularly grating against his nerves. Ursaems allowed his true malicious nature to leak through his facade for a moment, forcefeeding Michael Trinity fatally poisonous berries to get rid of him temporarily in the month of April. Ursaems then covered up the murder by making it seem as if Michael had accidentally poisoned himself.

The true nature of the mysterious murder would take some time to uncover by the investigator Wataru Takagi due to the difficulty finding evidence as well as Michael's strange contradicting testimony due to the berries' memory loss effect and his lack of cooperation.

Wataru solved the case months later once Ursaems' true nature came to light. Until then, no one suspected the Deva of any true malicious traits.

The Dark Mirror

In June, on "lucky" Friday the 13th, the Living Labyrinth (also known as The Ferryman) made its appearance both on the Network as well as within the city itself. All that looked upon it felt dread, fear, and despair no matter their status or amount of courage, for even the Deva feared the Labyrinth.

The Labyrinth sought out direct contact with a number of Wakened - while they were asleep or wide awake - during the next few weeks, forcing them to face their insecurities, flaws, regrets, and other issues in their fullest form. The voices that filled the Wakened's heads were both of the Ferryman as well as well as their own voices. The Living Labyrinth only reflected what was already there: A Dark Mirror.

The unwelcome visits caused a great amount of confusion and distress. All who were affected had to grapple with the aftermath of the visits in their own ways.

The Ways of the Bear

His reputation unmarred and unquestioned so far, Ursaems voiced that he felt stirrings in the air. He would not reveal just what tremors he was feeling, knowing that doing so would cause undue panic if he was wrong.

However, it was good to be vigilant and that required having more trained Wakened in the city. He called for and took on several students who all were courageous and righteous in their own ways, bestowing the power of Bending knowledge upon them.

Rather than passing on his knowledge through practice training, he Bended his own knowledge of Bending directly into their minds.

He bonded with his ten core students Miklo Braca, Loki Laufeyson, Miles "Tails" Prower, Harry Dresden, Denzel Quincy, Uzumaki Nagato, Rodimus, Elyon Brown, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Kai Green. Through this teacher-student bond, they gained the ability to instantly understand higher levels of Bending and were given a Bending boost that elevated their powers to higher levels. Students who were normal Wakened found themselves able to unlock Angelii-level powers and so on.

But the instant access to higher Bending came at a price unknown to them. When Ursaems established his position as their teacher and Bended his knowledge into them, he also forged a Loyalty Bond with each of them that would influence their thinking without their knowledge to be more accepting of his ideals. The more tied to him they were, the more blinded by loyalty they became.

The Dark Mirror Part II

The Living Labyrinth made a reappearance in the beginning of September, seeking out more Wakened to terrorize with their own negative traits and experiences.

The reasoning for its two appearances is unknown. Perhaps it was a warning of some sort. Or perhaps it was searching for something or someone. Whatever the reason, the Wakened had good cause to try to stop it once and for all.

The Wakened were also concerned about the sudden lack of Reality Storms, associating it with the last time the Labyrinth had shown up: the attack of the Dark Aeon.

Team Ursaems and Team Counterstrike

The Labyrinth and the nightmares that it imposed on the various Wakened never did make a good impression on the city's residents. Ursaems took advantage of this distrust for the Labyrinth and proposed that they should seal the Labyrinth away in a large emerald amulet of his own creation.

A number of Ascended and Wakened were wary about Ursaems' proposal. The Angelii Lucas pointed out that the Labyrinth was connected to the city and perhaps tampering with it would bring catastrophe. This theory was strengthened by the Deva's input that the Labyrinth is merely a harbinger with unfortunate consequences rather than a cause. Those with similar thoughts and stood by them started to make their own plans to counter the hunters of the Labyrinth.

There were essentially two main teams: Team Ursaems (Ursaems and his core students) and Team Counter-Strike (Lucas, Irene, Sanji, Number 6, and Lelouch). There was also a third team consisting of Nash and Six who were only there to collect intel. Each team was unable to make contact with the city or vice versa until their return.

The Captured Labyrinth

Ursaems' students - loyal to him through the Bond forged through their training sessions - and pro-capture Wakened assisted Ursaems in overpowering and subduing the Labyrinth in the Beyond. Ursaems stepped in and used his own powers to capture the severely weakened Labyrinth within the amulet which has now given the Deva a suit of ursine-like armor.

Despite the claims Ursaems made to keep guard of the amulet in the Wakened's best interests, the newly captured Labyrinth was now a powerful power source for him to personally tap into.

Some students found the situation to be too troubling and broke the loyalty bond between themselves and Ursaems.

Those who broke their bonds then also found that their Bending powers had returned to the levels they had been at before their training. These students had to rely on either their own strengths or the strengths of Ascended to return home.

There they found the city had been experiencing great trouble in their absence…

The Upheaval

Chaos normally only affected the city in the form of Storms when bits of Chaos filter up through Nautilus on a near-monthly basis in small doses. The effect was very similar to how solar flares periodically affected things on Earth, going unnoticed due to solar winds/magnetic fields, etc.

Because the Labyrinth and its powers were now connected to Ursaems, the space below the city became too unstable to hold back the Chaos that normally swirled under the city. The moment that the Labyrinth was subdued by Ursaems, this barrier-of-sorts vanished, leaving nothing to stem the flow of Chaos.

Chaos violently erupted through the Heart and forced Antovil - who normally resided atop the Heart as a lighthouse - off of it.

The very foundation of Nautilus had been damaged. There were cracks everywhere created by following earthquakes and aftershocks. Many Wakened fled to Helix but others stayed to fix the damage done to Nautilus.

All of the Deva rushed in to patch the grave injury to the Aeon, stemming off the flow of Chaos. Though the Devas' efforts kept the Aeon from dying and the city from falling apart, it required all of their attention and combined powers. Exhausted, they left the residents to deal with the other problems on their own in the following days.

In the week following the eruption, the Wakened had to repair Nautilus' cracks and dealt with the dangerous Chaos Creatures that had spilled into the city with the unfiltered flow of Chaos.

The creatures that emerged from the Chaos included amorphous monsters, evil doppelgangers, and Chaos Clockwork Horrors that all had to be fought and Unmade. To make things worse, Denzel Crocker had returned from the Labyrinth hunt as a power-hungry creature hellbent on creating even more chaos in the city.

Once the Heart was secure, the Deva of the city created a barrier around it to keep it safe from intruders, facilitating its healing.

Pink's Clues

The Wakened who remained loyal to the Ursaems followed him through the Between and Chaos to another world, unaware of the recent events occurring back in Nautilus. They were charged to complete a task now possible with the power of the captured Labyrinth - one that had the power to affect the existence of entire worlds.

During the duration of the Upheaval, Ursaems tricked his students and the other Wakened to fix a world full of flaws. This world was a simple and childlike world known as Pink's Clues (which shares a lot of similarities to another world one might know about). The group went around in search of 'flaws' in the shape of paw prints.

However, instead of repairing the world of Pink's Clues, the group had destabilized it to the point of no return. Rather than foreign flaws, the paw prints that they had been fixing had been integral parts of that world!

The group was forced to flee the world, watching helplessly as the small world shook until it crumbled and fell into Chaos.

Ursaems deemed that the world was now better off rather than showing sorrow in light of the outcome. Understandably, everyone was shocked by his purposeful and callous words. It was clear to many now that Ursaems had not made a horrible mistake but had brought destruction to Pink's world on purpose. But for what?

Those who could not accept such a thing found it easy to break from Ursaems' influence. Some fled back to Nautilus. The rest stayed to fight.

Ursaems assumed his bear form and fought off those who came with him. He held nothing back, even going as far as biting off limbs and threatening to kill those who dared to continue fighting him. The Wakened were no match for the Deva who had the power of the Labyrinth and were forced to retreat.

Ursaems escaped with Miklo Braca and Loki Laufeyson who both remained loyal to him but for separate reasons. Braca sought an authority figure he could follow and projected that status onto Ursaems, deepening his loyalty. Loki sought the power of the Labyrinth Amulet for his own gain and found it advantageous to remain at Ursaems' side for the time being though his bond was more or less dissolved.

The Dragon's Eye

Ursaems took Miklo Braca and Loki Laufeyson to an uninhabited forested world where he had resided for the last few million years. There, he bonded with the both of them individually, separately briefing them on an ancient relic that had belonged to Isis known as "The Dragon's Eye."

The information on "The Dragon's Eye" was a red herring at the time. It was the kind of information that would reach other Wakened when the two returned to Nautilus on Ursaems' command. When Irene caught wind of it, she asked Antovil about the relic, piquing his interest.

The reveal of "The Dragon's Eye" sounded fishy, but Antovil decided it would be better to be vigilant just in case. He chose to seek it out on his own, but Calex tagged along despite his protests. While this was happening, another pair of Ascended were doing their own leg work.

Visit to Ursaems' World

In wake of the Upheaval, Rex and Six decide to seek out Ursaems' world in search of any useful intel regarding the evil Deva. They sought out Antovil's help and received a compass on a golden chain that led them directly to Ursaems' world.

However, the pair had problems finding the country he came from because the whole area had become a vast desert. In their search, they came across an archaeological dig site, finding their answers in a museum located in a neighboring city holding an exhibit about the lost country.

It turned out that the last king of the ancient country had massacred his people during his rule during a time of famine and plague, sacrificing a great number of them to appease his preferred deity that controlled the sun. Ursaems' name was documented in many descriptions as being the lead physician who treated the sick during the plague. He had been ultimately sacrificed by order of the king.

Rex and Six also found a piece of a carving depicting Ursaems in this exhibit.The weathered carving showed him with his entrails exposed and snakes crawling on his body as he was offered up to the country's sun deity. The carving left no doubt that this ancient doctor and the Deva of Remedy were one and the same.

But Ursaems' sacrifice as well as all the others had been for nothing. The weakened country was soon attacked and absorbed by neighboring enemy countries. All of this had happened eons ago, leaving no trace of any of the countries left in the modern era of Ursaems' world.

Though the two Ascended did not find direct answers to Ursaems' motives to share with the rest of the Wakened, they all gained some insight into what could have twisted Ursaems' heart.

The Wakened began to formulate plans as September faded into October. They planned to snatch back the Labyrinth when certain events caused them to reconsider and switch gears…

Chaos Poisoning

Antovil and Calex followed the trail to the abandoned pleasure city of Arcas where Ursaems had been using as a testing ground for Unmaking worlds. It was here that Ursaems revealed his true self as the Deva of Entropy rather than the Deva of Renewal.

Antovil was furious with his former friend, upset that the other had turned out to be so different from his days in Kalliste. In fact, it had been all a ruse. Ursaems had never been the same ever since he learned about the collapse of his country and the annihilation of his family following his death. Instead of truly healing after Antovil and Klement had intervened with his attempted suicide, Ursaems had hidden his warped, bitter nature, letting it fester throughout his whole being.

After a brief interaction that failed to end peacefully, the Deva did battle in the remains of a casino. The whole building was rigged as a trap for Antovil and Calex. Overwhelmed, the two Deva were injured and infected by Chaos poisoning. Even their combined strength was no match against the Deva with the power of the Labyrinth, a severely injured Calex was forced to flee with Antovil who suffered the brunt of the attack.

Back in Nautilus, the alarmed Wakened fought to Bend the Chaos poison out of Antovil. The Deva's life hung in the balance for a while but was ultimately saved. Antovil warned the Wakened of Ursaems' true identity as the "Deva of Entropy." and that he sought to "destroy the anchor" over Nautilus. In short, he aimed for Kalliste - the city of Glass.

As the Wakened scrambled to create a new plan of action to defend the city, Ursaems made his next move.

Complete Chaos

Shaking was felt all over Nautilus a few days later. The chains of the city attached to Kalliste wobbled continuously, causing what felt like small earthquakes. An explosion from above told all that the shaking was coming from Kalliste.

The Gate of Truth had been opened to allow Chaos to pour through and spill into Kalliste. An army of Chaos Creatures had emerged and chased any Wakened from Kalliste back into Nautilus. The way closes behind them, making it impossible to get back into Kalliste via the gate.

Ursaems then projected an image of himself against the sky, addressing the city as the Deva of Entropy and conqueror of Kalliste.

The Deva revealed that he had taken control of the City of Glass and was now going to destroy it. By destroying Kalliste, he would effectively cut Nautilus from its anchor and drop both cities into Chaos. It was clear Pink's Clues was just the beginning. Ursaems was planning to plunge everything into Chaos to start the whole system of world creation anew.

Corruption and decay were natural outcomes in all worlds. They were integral to a world's existence no matter how pure the inhabitants' intentions.

In Ursaems' eyes, jettisoning the current multiverse into Chaos before throwing himself in was for the best. He would entrust everything to complete chaos and starting everything anew from one nothingness within in a new multiverse.

Needless to say, all of the Wakened disagreed with the twisted Deva. They were their own entities and they were to be the ones to carve out their own destinies for better or for worse. Handing over the lives of themselves and of all worlds to one person was unthinkable. Even Miklo Braca realized this, finally breaking his loyalty bond with the Deva.

The Wakened changed their plans yet again to prepare for an invasion on Kalliste while they waited for the Northern Gate to be be a two-way path between Nautilus and Kalliste again. Areva also broke the jail open on Nu's request to free the devious jailbird Hazuma to avoid a possible death from a collapsing city.

Second Battle of Kalliste

Five days after Ursaems' declaration, the Wakened initiated their strategies to take back Kalliste and the Labyrinth. This was no longer just a battle to decide the keeper of the Labyrinth. It was now a battle for survival for themselves and for the multiverse as they knew it.

Those who decided to stay behind gathered in Helix which would be able to function as a haven in the case that Nautilus was truly destroyed. It could detach from the city and function as an airship. Those who decided to take on Ursaems directly made their way into Kalliste after Antovil repaired the North gate.

The attack teams had split themselves out into four teams to handle each of the gates in Kalliste:

Team Ursaems: Lelouch, Xemnas, Nash, Iason, Nagato, Tails, Crocker

Team Island: Rex, Six, Kevin, Shen, Scott, Loki

Team Matter: Lucas, Giant, Sonic, Bulkhead

Team Dream: Suzaku, Death, Braca, Crichton, Sanji, Irene

Team Cybertron: Sideswipe, Ultra Magnus, Drift, Mirage, Harry Dresden, Rodimus Prime, V

Once they were in Kalliste, Teams Island, Matter, and Dream found the source of the shaking and explosions. Among the Chaos Creatures were many 50ft tall saber-tooth grizzly bears with massive claws for digging, 100ft tall mechanical creatures with drills for arms to tunnel down, and black and red sphere creatures that were designed to explode at weak points. All three creatures were present to speed up Kalliste's destabilizing process. All of these creatures had to be dealt with via Unmaking.

Once the threats were neutralized, all teams as well as the other Wakened gathered with Team Ursaems at the Senate Building.

Ursaems remained on the top floor of the Senate building to attempt to seal The Light - the source of all Order - overhead while his minions were busy attacking Kalliste itself. He controlled a bear-shaped shadow to slowly devour the Light and to give time to allow Chaos to run rampant and destroy everything.

Eclipse of Existence

After battling more creatures, the Wakened reach the top floor of the Senate. Ursaems had blown out the remainder of the roof in order to have unimpeded access to The Light. The Labyrinth Amulet around his neck provided him all the power he needed to seal the Light away so the Wakened lept into action to prevent him from doing so.

All of the fighters dodged Ursaems' fire attacks and much of the glass debris as they fought within the Senate building. The senate's layout gave them ample places to hide but not many places to get a clear shot. Caesar's decoy device bought them some time to get into position but it was by no means a cakewalk to attack the Deva.

One group swooped in to attack and distract Ursaems while the rest sought to tear the amulet away from him. Ursaems fought back by transforming into a 100ft tall bear and utilizing more Bending and Chaos Poisoning after smashing a large hole through the Senate's floors. The fighters managed to do some damage to Ursaems, suffering grave injuries in turn.

The Wakened eventually managed to break the amulet's chain either by snapping the links or Unmaking them altogether and the amulet shatters on the ground. The Living Labyrinth emerged once more. It pierced Ursaems through his chest and ripped away the powers that he had taken from it. This reverted the Deva back into his human form with his normal set of Deva powers. It then lifted Ursaems up, dragging him down screaming into the depths of Chaos. Once they had vanished, the bear shadow dissipated, bringing an end to the destruction.

The end of October drew near when the Wakened returned to what they called home, finding much of the city in ruins. Many establishments had been destroyed by the debris that had fallen from Kalliste. Despite the losses, what mattered most was the Labyrinth had returned to its proper dwelling place and Nautilus was recovering. The City of Change was safe.

For now.

Ursaems tricked the Wakened, sealing the Labyrinth's power within an amulet, enhancing his own abilities in order to Unmake everything from existence. And again everyone was distraught. But the Wakened regrouped, restrategized, and reentered the City of Kalliste for another showdown a month later.

As of late, the Labyrinth is freed, Ursaems' fate is left unknown, and both Kalliste and Nautilus are still hanging in there. Unfortunately, much damage has befallen both cities, leaving the weary Wakened to clean up the mess left behind.

Genesis of Nature

May 2015 - February 2016

Rebuilding and Recreating

Things were quiet after the battle against Ursaems. The holiday season came and went as did spring. Antovil, devastated by how Ursaems betrayed him and the rest of the city, started keeping more to himself. Calex and Klement quickly filled in the void, guiding Wakened as they rebuilt their city.

Areva was bored. She was not the type to sit around idly, after all. So she decided to build something on her own. But she was also lazy and found building a whole world - as all Deva were capable of - to be too much trouble.

She decided to build a city. Or rather, to rebuild one with the scraps of another for she only needed a quick project to alleviate her boredom.

City From the Ashes

She sought out Arcas, the City of Delights, since Antovil and Calex's battle with Ursaems had made her aware that it must have drifted close to Nautilus since its banishment.

Arcas was not just Ursaems' recent testing ground for Unmaking worlds. It had been a rich history of being a pleasure trip destination back in the days of Kalliste. However, it had been destroyed during the war since Arcas' inherent chaotic nature did not sit well with Isis and the Deva of Glass cut it loose from Kalliste. Arcas' Aeon perished soon after and the city itself fell into disarray without an Aeon within it or residents to maintain proper upkeep.

Arcas' ruins was the perfect site for her project since she was familiar with it back in its heyday and would only have to build on top of what she already knew rather than start her planning from scratch.

Areva took her time to reform the city and restore it to its former glory but there were still many pieces that it lacked. So she dove into Chaos multiple times, looking for bits of Potential that she could use to patch Arcas with.

A Rosy Outcome

Areva found parts of Pink's Clues floating aimlessly about in the swirl of Chaos. Though it had torn itself apart after Ursaems' team inadvertently destabilized it, it hadn't completely dissolved and fully absorbed by Chaos. The Deva of Thrills salvaged these parts and used her powers to Bind them to Arcas to form a whole new city.

This development coincidentally provided a solution to a terrible situation. Ursaems' destruction of Pink's Clues had left its inhabitants - such as the sentient household items and Pink herself - worldless and homeless. They were not Wakened and thus could not live in Nautilus, Kalliste, or Helix. They also could not transfer to other worlds because unrelated worlds could not overlap. They thus became permanent residents of Arcas where they were free to live in return for their services that would keep the city running.

It seemed like a win-win situation: The residents didn't have to perish nor be homeless, the residents of Nautilus had a new place to have fun, and Areva would have something to keep her entertained without being bogged down by tedious responsibilities that usually came with making a city.

And it was a win-win situation for a while.

A New Arrival

A girl named Amior Awakened in Nautilus shortly after Arcas was completed and open to Nautilus residents.

Her background was bleak; she had been lost in the desert with her infant nephew, trying to escape the tyranny of an insane king. Her whole family had been killed and her country was on the verge of collapsing.

She found a place to stay with a certain newlywed couple (Prisoner Number 6 and Mary Poppins) while she also made friends with other residents. During this time, Areva recognized Amior as Ursaem's youngest sister and other residents such as Suzaku discovered this fact through other venues. Concerned for the girl's safety, they kept this information private.

It's Not Easy Being Green

Months passed by and things were becoming more noticeably strange with Areva. The Deva had been becoming more and more lethargic ever since Arcas was complete. Stranger still, she was starting to sprout leaves and rosebuds all over her body.

The Deva tried to play this off time and time again, but even she could not hide her panic from Antovil and the other Deva as the growth continued through the month of October and her powers and energy continued to weaken.

She became a petrified wooden statue at the edge of the swamp on Halloween Night once all of the rosebuds burst into bloom at once.

The Ascended Ailment

Great concern inevitably followed once Areva’s condition came to light. Within its earlier stages, the Deva and the Ascended tried to find the answers to what was going on. However, early investigations hit dead ends without any clues as to what triggered the Deva of Thrills’ condition.

The next month yielded more information but also brought worse news.

The same strange symptoms that Areva exhibited prior to her transformation began to spread among the Deva and the majority of the Ascended. They began to exhibit milder symptoms such as unusual bouts of fatigue and the urge to be outside. These signs soon took dramatic turns and many were alarmed when plant buds began to sprout from their bodies.

Fear gripped the affected Ascended and the Wakened who were warned about the situation as their fates were already known but the cure was not. No one had any answer as to why only the Ascended were affected.

Stranger still was the smaller group of Ascended who were seemingly immune to the outbreak for unknown reasons…

The (Almost) Christmas Miracle

Nautilus tried to intervene on the behalf of the Wakened despite being fatigued by the plant plague. Frightened by the plight of his citizens, he used what little strength he gathered to drive back and reverse the signs of the disease. While he couldn't completely get rid of it, he did enough to where everyone could enjoy the Christmas holiday without fear.

The reprieve turned out to be a mixed blessing when Antovil announced the new Ascended while showing noticeable fatigue. Many became concerned about the Deva’s health due to what had already happened to Areva. Could he too be becoming ill?

It seemed like they would be okay otherwise. But it would not last. The Wakened were no closer to finding out details about this illness or its cure but they were aware that not even the Deva or Nautilus could hold it back.

Nautilus Weakens and Things Get Much Much Worse

Nautilus’ strength finally gave out on the day before New Years Eve. The disease returns in full force, affecting not only the Ascended but also starting to infect non-Ascended as well. The heart becomes ensnared in an organic cage and no one could access it.

Klement finally addressed the crisis, apologizing for the secrecy and finally revealing what they do know. He explained that the Deva had not wanted to cause a panic while they did not have all the details themselves but the time had come to include everyone.

Around this same time, Amior herself reveals that she’s Ursaem’s little sister. The same one that was supposed to have died long ago in her own world before an Awakened Ursaems' eyes. Though millennia had passed for Ursaems while he waited for his family to Awaken, the nature of Awakening meant that she had Awakened immediately after her death.

Revealing Ursaems’ Revenge

There was much frantic searching for answers following Klement's rally for cooperation. There were two massive searches beyond Nautilus: first in Kalliste and then in Arcas.

The search in Kalliste yielded Ursaems’ old broken amulet that served as the Labyrinth's prison. This discovery pointed to him possibly being responsible for the disease despite him having been pulled into Chaos. Nothing much had changed in the City of Glass since the battle against him to stop his devouring of the Light.

The Arcas search party, however, discovered that Arcas had been overrun with infected plants that had similar traits to Areva's infected cells. It was pretty clear that Areva had inadvertently caught and introduced the disease when she had recreated the city Arcas.

The group of immune Ascended suddenly get their own strange sickness shortly after these two searches. This condition was known as Chaos Poisoning: a condition that caused those to spit out or vomit pearls due to their bodies subconsciously protecting themselves by trapping and turning the chaos into pearl-like objects.

The situation took another turn for the worse when Antovil lost his battle with the disease, joining Areva in a tree-like state. The grim discovery spurred the Wakened into finding the answers they sought before they, too, suffered the same fate. Once the plans were made, several teams of Wakened go to a world in which Ursaems claimed as his own, fighting their way into his old hideout to look for a cure.

Invasion of the Plants and The Cure

Meanwhile, Chaos bled off onto Nautilus, mutating the ingrained sickness, allowing it to thrive in the form of wild plant life which had easily overtaken the city. Although some of the Wakened were evacuated to Helix, those who stayed behind decided they could still fight back. Klement and Calex also lent a hand in boosting the Wakened's powers; despite all of their efforts, some succumbed to the disease, quickly becoming one with the greenery. Calex also found himself changing, unable to fight off the feelings of weariness before turning completely. As the last Deva standing, Klement forced the use of his remaining strength, giving the Nautilus-centric Wakened a second wind to keep the plants from winning.

Days later, the first group returned with vital information about the cure. While it was initially good news, they soon found it required (wasn't it Ursaems' blood) Amior’s blood to create the antidote for the city. Thankfully they only needed a little blood from her and the antidote is able to get made and spread throughout the city. Curing others of the condition.

Rise of Endos

July 2016 - ???
(On going; subject to change)

Endos attacked Xemnas who still had the essence of Isis within him; Pyramid Head has already gone back to sleep. Endos attacked Xemnas draining the other of the essence and disappearing - until March of 2017; when Endos is at the AU high school prom and is later found that Endos had played silly to psychological tormenting tricks on most of the residents. The Labyrinth ran out shortly afterward.

In June of 2017; Endos has made himself a Deva by use of the essence of Isis and also has control over Areva in Nautilus due to having essences of the Devas.

Klement and Calex both having disappeared in April of 2017.

Currently, Endos declares himself king of Nautilus - either join Endos or die!

Papillion in the meanwhile has become a loyal servant to Endos and has been akumatizing some of the residents.
