A realm synonymous with divine potential, Zushilo is a world which stands for undying Thaumic power and angelic strength. The inhabitants of this world, blessed with angelic protection alongside Sedrua's might, have hardly known days of suffering save for Aylathiya's harshest calamities. What rests today is a near-pristine Hedonist World, a perfected orb designed to unite Aylathiya under a joyous benefactor, Mother Sachitel. Despite Sachitel's shortcomings with creating a sentry for her worlds, Zushilo stood unscathed from the greed of corruption and the wrath of outsiders. What exists today is a testament to magical willpower across the galaxy, thriving even amidst impossible odds.

Zushilo currently orbits the Eye of Aylathiya, a special star which is imbued with everlasting angelic power. The Eye sits atop Aylathiya in the midst of the Suvaren Field, being guarded by Sedrua's might. Its effects to Zushilo are immense, as it grants the world with perfect, undying starlight which tempers the surface with immense warmth. Rainforests typically take the brunt of this bright sun - cascading light down to thriving communities below. Artificial structures are no stranger to Zushilo's surface either, basking in the Eye's warmth as they fulfill the needs of the people. Intense Thaumic power radiates gloriously across the planet at all times, as Zushilo's communities have utilized it for eons.

History

Preface

Sachitel was not the first Angel to give paradise to the common people. Her forefather, Father Zaphenim, was the first Angel to step foot on Aylathiya's grounds. He gave commoners the means of ascending with Thaumic power, allowing them to enter his realm, the Lux Aeterna. Zaphenim's success in creating an empire laid the foundations for Sachitel, as she followed in his footsteps. Having an unyielding desire to bestow mortal people with her blessings, Sachitel forged Hedonist Worlds. These worlds were realms of unending paradise meant to give commoners but a taste of the Aeterna's blessings. Sachitel thought it useful to create the worlds since it would align her people to become Magi in their own right. Eventually, she wanted all of Aylathiya's beings to ascend to the Lux Aeterna with Zaphenim.

Following the creation of her first Hedonist Worlds, Sachitel went forth to scour the cosmos, protecting her people against any of its foes. For the first time since Zaphenim, Aylathiya's climate became one of order, and its people lived in a long, prosperous period of joy. Sachitel even discovered sophisticated technology, combining Thaumaturgy with mechanical mastery. This discovery led to an even higher form of society, allowing people from Hedonist Worlds to take to the stars and travel to other realms. With all of Aylathiya under her wing, Sachitel felt as if her work was nearing completion.

Creation

Zushilo was forged as Sachitel's greatest and last Hedonist World, as she intended it to be a center for all people. It immediately became the largest hub for Sachitel's people, as they desired to inhabit her most divine of creations. Zushilo was made small however, limited to those who Sachitel thought was worthy. To accommodate, Sachitel did allow mechanical constructs to be in Zushilo's vicinity, giving her people a glimpse of what is to come for the worthy. A peaceful and accepted hierarchy arrived from then after, pitting Aylathiya's common people "below" those who were about to ascend to the Aeterna.

Sachitel's time in Aylathiya dwindled away as she believed her purpose was complete. To guard the Hedonist Worlds in her absence, she created the Cherubic Sentry, an organization of beings named Cherubim. These souls were bestowed with a portion of Sachitel's power, and their main goal was to protect the Hedonist Worlds. Sachitel hoped that they would exist as a sign that her will still lingered over her people. As Sachitel vanished to the Lux Aeterna, she blessed the Eye of Aylathiya and the suns of other Hedonist Worlds. With her energy, they would shine for far longer than Aylathiya's usual stars. Eventually, the Sentry took Sachitel's place, completing their objective to the best of their ability.

Days of the Sentry

For the first several millennia, Aylathiya was just as if not more peaceful than in Sachitel's time. While the Sentry's presence lingered, the people of Aylathiya were content to live out their days in the glory of the Hedonist Worlds. From time to time, Zushilo's inhabitants would indeed ascend, giving hope to those who were learning. The Cherubim around Zushilo were especially effective at their job, often helping mortals directly and convening with other Cherubim. Stability was almost a constant, save for rogue Cherubim which deviated from their objective. The very existence of deviants was alarming however, as some common people feared corruption despite their life in paradise. Despite this, the Sentry remained vigilant, keeping their faith alive in the minds of those who needed it.

Inevitably, the next Angels arrived in Aylathiya. Farther Rinayo, soon accompanied by another Angel Father Isayo, trekked the stars and came across the hedonist Worlds. They were astonished by the creations of Sachitel and Zaphenim, as well as the Sentry. Rinayo saw the potential within the Sentry and the Cherubim, seeing them as tools to help spread the Aeterna's light to new planets and realms. Isayo was admired by the balance of the Hedonist Worlds, viewing them as the pinnacle of society and civilization. He also saw the Cherubim as a way to bring down those who opposed his message. In the midst of these angels' visit, the Sentry found that they grew seeds of doubt in Sachitel's absence. Thousands of years of remaining at their post while using Thaumaturgy wore away at their minds, and evil thoughts appeared in the heads of many Cherubim.

Upon seeing these thoughts, the Cherubim guarding Zushilo re-enforced their commitment to the people below. They swore to protect the common people no matter what, ensuring that Sachitel's teachings were upheld. Many of the Cherubim followed suit, restoring the faith of those who had lost sight of its power. Father Rinayo and Isayo took notice as well, neutralizing Cherubim who fell out of line. The two Angels were constantly busy however, and several atrocities happened on Hedonist Worlds before they stepped their foot down. About twenty percent of all Cherubim were thought to be 'evil' by this point, either resulting in their termination or imprisonment. Those who committed to their duties were granted high living in Zaphenim's Palace upon a natural death.

Both Fathers served their purpose however, believing that Aylathiya was secure after they defeated Mahou and watched the Un'oit. Upon their departure, they left behind thousands of beings similar to the Cherubim. Born to fight for stability, these children kept Hedonists Worlds and Aylathiya by large safe for thousands of years more. To keep as much order as possible, most of these children thought it wise to merge into one being, the Resonant Divinity. The consolidation of Angelic children became a deathly drawback however, as the Divinity was unable to survey much of Aylathiya for years at a time. Hundreds of Cherubim tended towards a malicious path, and in only one thousands years, many Hedonist Worlds were subjugated. Corruption ran its roots deep through the veins of societies as Cherubim attempted to begin their own empires. While the Divinity was successful in killing off many of them, these fallen Cherubim became a menace to Aylathiya as a whole.

Ohko's Time

Mother Ohko emerged as Aylathiya's next Angel, appearing during at time of strife and disarray. The Resonant Divinity essentially drove itself insane as it attempted to keep the entire galaxy under control. Mother Ohko noticed this immediately, and came to the aid of the Divinity by acting as its caregiver. By this time, most Hedonist Worlds were classified as 'impure', with Zushilo barely dodging the wrath of the fallen Cherubim. It thrived when it could - and its people remained joyous despite the turmoil surrounding them. As Ohko bore witness to Sachitel's final world, she knew that it would be a realm to protect. She used much of her energy to give the Cherubim of Zushilo an undying willpower, further cementing the planet's security.

Meanwhile, Ohko became the leader of a vast civilization. While she appreciated watching over the Hedonist Worlds, governing a nation of this magnitude was a feat no Angel did before. Her nation expanded with great fervor, though it avoided the Hedonist Worlds as it claimed much of Aylathiya. Delegating the Resonant Divinity to the Hedonist Worlds, Ohko intended to live the rest of her days as Aylathiya's de facto leader. She also saw the potential in freeing her forebearers, an idea which hardly crossed the minds of any Angel until this point. During the time she tried to call them however, The Administrator, an Angel-like entity, carelessly unleashed itself against Aylathiya. In the process, thousands of planets were destroyed and havoc was wreaked against the Hedonist Worlds. Ohko attempted to fight its forces with her daughter Eve, though Eve was captured as she fought an endless wall of machines. Ohko fought in much the same light, and her pylon was exhausted to the point where she was nothing but a husk. Ohko was taken prisoner and Zushilo's very existence was up in the air.

The following centuries were nothing short of pain for Aylathiya's people. The Resonant Divinity, now the last protector able to fight The Administrator, tried its hardest to dispel it. Eve's inventions did appear to rid the Administrator for a time, but it was far too late. Ohko perished in an attempt to escape The Administrator, and so Aylathiya truly appeared to be doomed. With nothing of value to do, the Resonant Divinity took watch over as many worlds as it could, though it brooded near Zushilo as much as it could. Ohko's civilization on the other hand shattered into countless pieces, its descendants wandering the cosmos to be met with with no respite. In essence, Ohko's people were sent to the brink of extinction.
