Basic Description

Black Pearl2.png

The Black Pearl, often named Fojura by regional inhabitants, is an anomalous object which appears to be a black hole. It is located near the center of the Suvaren Galaxy, and is classified as a dangerous object pertaining to the Aeterna Caligne. The Black Pearl has gained its anomalous title rightfully, considering that it is known to effect the very fiber of sapience and conscience in the Aeterna Caligne. As such, a small exclusion zone has been constructed around the vicinity of the Black Pearl. Only the highest level of personnel and experienced Magi, such as members of the Creed of Ysylo, are allowed to enter anywhere in the facility. Vurilia Jiutopati and Mother Sydiah have also given themselves authority to enter the area of the Black Pearl, though they have not been recorded near the location at all.

While the Black Pearl is seemingly donned with basic anomalies, it is thought that its true nature runs much deeper. It is evident that the Black Pearl may directly connect to the Aeterna Caligne by unknown means. This has been studied through the many years of its existence, with proof in the form conscience warping and subjugation. Attempts at subverting the harm in one's conscience or psyche have failed, which has in turn made the Black Pearl as infamous as it is.

However, the Black Pearl does not stop at basic conscience effects. Through numerous archives and incidents, it is known that the Black Pearl is able to induce incurable forms of psychosis and mania, as well as permanent dampening of psychokinetic abilities. These are thought to happen after a few weeks of exposure to the object. Direct decay of the conscience happens not too long after. It is known that harmful effects such as rapid dementia, disassociation, and full disability of psychokinetic abilities happen after a month after exposure. Effectively, one becomes completely disabled after this time period, which has led many to speculate that the Black Pearl is an opening to the Aeterna Caligne, one which hammers and leeches on conscience.

As mentioned above, attempts at curing mental issues from the Black Pearl have not been successful. Since symptoms appear to directly affect conscience from the Aeterna Caligne, no material methods of curing the diseases are possible. Entering the Aeterna Caligne and finding affected consciousness in the sea of others is simply not worth it either. This is because any potential curers would likely spend too much time in the Aeterna Caligne, succumbing to the lands of unreality and melding their realspace and falsespace bodies together. The general danger of any cure to the effects of the Black Pearl have made it futile. So far, the exclusion zone around the Black Pearl has proven useful at keeping any and all onlookers away from its influence.

Mythos

The Prophecies

Tales and legends about the Black Pearl, which have appeared in apparent prophecies, have been systematically discovered and translated. Most of them appear to speak of a "Great King and his Mistress", as well as "The old king falling to the hands of fate". While these are typically dismissed as folklore, it has been taken rather seriously by skeptics. Further translations have shown that the Black Pearl's prophecies have predicted several major events which have changed the landscape of the intergalactic political climate. The fall of the Triumvirate, the Commonwealth's Eclipse and the War of the Ancients have been mentioned in scripts which also pertain to the Black Pearl.

Modern Day

As of the modern day, the Black Pearl is not necessarily noteworthy. However, Vurilia Jiutopati has expressed great disdain and worry for the Black Pearl, stating that it is "The Hand of Entropy". He has gone off on long tangents explaining that it is most definitely harmful to the integrity of its area. Vurilia has also spent a lot of time around, but not in the exclusion zone of the Black Pearl. As for others, such as Mother Sydiah, and members of the Creed of Ysylo, they too have expressed concern with its capability. Some claim that it may be able to destroy the Suvaren Galaxy, while others think that it has the power to re-awaken The Architects.
