Description

The Celestial Plague (Often shortened to The Plague) is a major threat to the current way of life in the Aylothn-Sagittaria Group. It is a collection of numerous genetically engineered organisms and artificial automata capable of traversing interstellar space. Constructed by POLIKY and the Quintet Puontari Federations for the purpose of brutal offensive conflicts, the Celestial Plague was unleashed upon countless warfronts and deep inside offensive territory in the Via Sagittaria Galaxy. The Plague is classified as a threat to the entire Virgo Supercluster, though it is mostly confined to the Via Sagittaria Galaxy and its satellites, as well as varying major galaxies.

The Plague is an extremely dangerous threat that has a high degree of lethality, causing mass casualties and the widespread destruction of worlds. The Plague is also responsible for the deaths of billions of individuals and many races, and it is regarded as one of the most dangerous threats to the Aylothn-Sagittaria Group. The Confederacy of Borealis, which is the most hard-hit by the Celestial Plague, has been unable to deflect to ongoing crisis since the War of the Ancients.

In modern-day, the Quintet Puontari Federations gets an understandable amount of resentment for their now out-of-control creation, as many have cited them as the largest source of continuous causalities and chaos. While the Celestial Plague is much more mitigated than before, the Confederacy and even the Quintet Puontari Federations themselves come together in attempts to eliminate the Celestial Plague. Various instances of in-fighting within the Celestial Plague itself has also made combat more difficult.

Fear of the Celestial Plague is also rampant, as many fortified colonies and organized forces seemingly fall to their knees by the barbaric groups of the Celestial Plague. The violent and unruly battles which usually take place ae also very expensive to local forces, though defeat has been heavily mitigated following restrictions and guidelines which have been placed. Other instances of ills and chaos caused by the Plague are also seen in various instances of conflict, including recent destabilization of the Confederacy, and recent attacks on farther organizations such as the Commonwealth of United Economic Nations.

Components

There are numerous major components to the Celestial Plague, which are all modified editions of artificial or biological life forms. Utilizing secretive genetic editing and mechanical work, the Celestial Plague has come out as endlessly elusive and numerous, with its many parts having a unique composition and set of goals. This has made any managing of the Celestial Plague almost impossible, considering the heavy diversity in the many components. The Plague is most commonly seen as a multitude of genetically-engineered organisms, which are often very aggressive and dangerous. These organisms are either created in labs or are designed to be spread as quickly as possible, with little regard to their environment. Components are also issued a threat level, from levels Mikro to Kolofon, and was created by the Anomalous Object Repository for the purpose of categorization and warning.

The Paragons of the Burning Crown

The Paragons of the Burning Crown, being a group focused on the disintegration of the Quintet Puontari Federations and other nations, has used the Celestial Plague to ensue chaos and calamity all across the Aylothn-Sagittaria Group. Thousands of instances of The Paragons of the Burning Crown aiding the development of the Celestial Plague have been documented, which makes them a very elusive target by both the Quintet Puontari Federations and varying other nations affected by the Celestial Plague. The Paragons of the Burning Crown have also lacked any formal interaction with the major nations of the Aylothn-Sagittaria Group, with the only interactions being aggressive and dismissive in nature.

Considering that The Paragons of the Burning Crown have held resentment towards the Quintet Puontari Federations since its creation, it is remarkable that any full-scale assaults or any continuations of the War of the Ancients have not happened yet. However, smaller but worrying events have come to pass by The Paragons of the Burning Crown, including a set of proxy wars, cyberattacks, and its recent increase in seiges by the Celestial Plague. The recent arrival of Troxinians and the Puontari Hive has also made The Paragons of the Burning Crown come back to attention by many nations. However, The Paragons of the Burning Crown have given no signs of a direct attack, but rather an increase in the potency of the Celestial Plague.

History

The Celestial Plague was first manufactured before the Quintet Puontari Federations traveled to the Aylothn-Sagittaria Group - long before it was deemed a 'plague' at all. In the prototype and early development phases of the Celestial Plague, it merely consisted of a few notable pieces of technology, designed to protect the system of Vaults that the Quintet Puontari Federations established. Eventually, the Quintet Puontari Federations left in an event that is known as the Third Migration. This made the QPF leave with many of its important assets and people, while simultaneously abandoning a large number of citizens/personnel, leaving them to be subsumed by the forces of The Paragons of the Burning Crown.

These citizens, being heavily affiliated with the QPF, were taken in by The Paragons of the Burning Crown and treated harshly, soon being forced to follow the QPF in the Third Migration. Promising to fight the Quintet Puontari Federations and disarming POLIKY, The Paragons of the Burning Crown launched their own system of generation ships, and followed the Quintet Puontari Federations to the Zalanthium Galaxy, which is where they were headed to. This would happen with time, but not too many forces followed the Quintet Puontari Federations in the end. However, their numbers and knowledge were enough to stay as a formidable threat.

Over the many millennia of their intergalactic trip, The Paragons of the Burning Crown and the Quintet Puontari Federations arrived near the Zalanthium Galaxy in a series of 'colonial trains'. The Paragons of the Burning Crown stood silent for many years as the Quintet Puontari Federations arrived and kept expanding. Eventually, tensions started and rose as the Confederacy discovered the mysterious and threatening nature of them. Soon after, it broke and culminated in a massive intergalactic battle known as the War of the Ancients. During this time, The Paragons of the Burning Crown sabotaged numerous areas around the Quintet Puontari Federations and CoB, causing chaos and aiding in the spreading of the Celestial Plague.

Long before the War of the Ancients came to an end, the Quintet Puontari Federations realized their mistake with the Celestial Plague, but it was too late. The high reproduction rate of the Celestial Plague, combined with the hidden hand of The Paragons of the Burning Crown, had spread the Celestial Plague all around the Aylothn-Sagittaria Group, essentially making it uncontainable. The war then came to a resolution with a ceasefire, but The Paragons of the Burning Crown only thought of this peace as the beginning.

Being completely split off from the center of their old colonies, The Paragons of the Burning Crown underwent many changes, upholding a tyrannical presence over those who were against them. They also expanded their borders, but kept away from the Quintet Puontari Federations until they thought they were powerful enough. When that day came to pass, The Paragons of the Burning Crown unveiled themselves to the Quintet Puontari Federations, and they were alarmed at the sheer power, scale, and ambition of The Paragons of the Burning Crown.

This meant that shortly following the War of the Ancients, severe tensions rose with the Quintet Puontari Federations once more, and many of the remaining forced were sent to guard the areas near their colonies. However, The Paragons of the Burning Crown began to escalate the situation, causing instability inside the QPF and causing further amounts of sabotage in its borders. Attacks were also common, as was attacks on the varying other nations of the Aylothn-Sagittaria Group. This is when the Celestial Plague attained its infamy, as The Paragons of the Burning Crown used the best technology to form an entirely new component, the Puontari Hive.

The Puontari Hive, designed to be the perfect organism, was let loose in the Fourth Recreator Conflicts. It was sent across multiple areas around the Aylothn-Sagittaria Group. In specifics, the Commonwealth of United Economic Nations and the Quintet Puontari Federations were targeted, as many samples of the Puontari Hive were sent to core worlds of the Commonwealth.
