One of the many nebulous expanses in the Suvaren Galaxy, which shows leakage form the Aeterna Caligne.

Sydiah's Hinterlands is a major region across the Suvaren Galaxy, which contains a heavy level of rocky debris, islands, and other waste material which usually originates from the Aeterna Caligne. Populating the Suvaren Galaxy in a thick cloud of material, Sydiah's Hinterlands have been known for eons, being referenced in many ancient texts and being renowned as a unique feature of the Suvaren Galaxy. Sydiah's Hinterlands was first catalogued and named by Vurilia Jiutopati, after the disappearance of Mother Sydiah. They are named after Mother Sydiah - who tried to utilize the Aeterna Caligne to produce more members of The Architects. Her risky attempt backfired, and produced The Hinterlands as a result.

While it holds a standard appearance, Sydiah's Hinterlands is known for its anomalous properties, which pertain to the Aeterna Caligne. Sites which link to the Aeterna Caligne, colloquially known as The Cracks of Reality, are near almost every site of Sydiah's Hinterlands. sites of the Aeterna Caligne are usually inert in its nature of anomalousness, though there have been numerous sealed off sections which may pose a threat to daily life in the Suvaren Galaxy.

Sydiah's Hinterlands, with its closeness to the Aeterna Caligne, has had a profound effect in local Psychokinesis. Reports of heightened abilities, increase in learning, and other boons have been observed and confirmed. In the close confines of The Cracks of Reality, these effects may become negative. Magi, as well as former psychokinetics, have been known to experience harmful effects to their weight in the Aeterna Caligne. The most notable major downside is that The Cracks of Reality speed up relative death with use of psychokinesis. They may also cause sudden troubles with casual use of Psychokinesis.

Sydiah's Hinterlands, while mostly present in the Suvaren Galaxy, are not exclusive to it. Instances of identical phenomena have been observed in the Aylothn Galaxy and the Peleunsk Galaxy among others. Effects from the Aeterna Caligne are usually toned down in instances not from the Suvaren Galaxy. Authorities from many nations have typically deemed Sydiah's Hinterlands to be non-eventful, with many regions even being colonized or deeply explored. Any dangerous areas which reside or appear are immediately zoned off, though there is nothing currently known which can stop it.

Notable Sites

There exist several notable sites of Sydiah's Hinterlands, which may hold heavy development or unique traits. Many sites of this type happen to be dangerous, or may shift in accordance to the Aeterna Caligne's nature. Others may be entirely docile and safe to inhabit or research, and contain population centers and scientists, as well as many psychokinetic users.

Veizesig Subcontinent
Description The Veizesig Subcontinent is a very populated region, which is located in a very active part of Sydiah's Hinterlands. In this region, areas of leakage from the Aeterna Caligne have been recorded to be docile yet large. It has encompassed the region of the Veizesig Subcontinent ever since colonization. The continent itself is a series of 'islands' which surround a central urbanized mass. There exists native life to the Veizesig Subcontinent, which has been integrated in the urban structure of it. It is also used as a method of attraction to tourists and passerbys. B'Kalatala, mostly known for being the most densely known populated area in the Local Universe, also contains several areas which area near Sydiah's Hinterlands. These areas, showing normal levels of safety, are one of the hottest tourist sites in the vicinity of B'Kalatala. These sites include ancient and abandoned structures, which have been preserved and used as a marketing tool and attraction for areas near it. Other than its blatant use for local economy, the section of Sydiah's Hinterlands near B'Kalatala have recently been known for flaring up upon the return of Mother Sydiah. Anomalies have heightened, though safety is still at acceptable levels.
Description Irchec is a notably dangerous area of Sydiah's Hinterlands, which has been zoned off for the safety of the Suvaren Galaxy. Irchec is primarily known for being the area in which Mother Sydiah disappeared, in turn creating The Hinterlands itself. Existing in a purely chaotic state, Irchec has been known to release numerous forces from the Aeterna Caligne, which have spread through numerous quarantine zones. Irchec has also threatened populated areas on many occasions, though containment has appeared to be going opulently. No methods of stopping Irchec's leakage has been found as of the modern day.
