Since the day she escaped Captain Sharpside’s lair, she’s riddled with anxiety and unable to leave her valley.
She remains in fear of that experience and reliving it. This sends her into a three year hiatus where she becomes obsessed with understanding the world she lives in...or shall we say the creatures she lives on?
Corvikara is an Ignitor, known to play a role in building and activating the Sentries. Ignitors were recruited by the Architects in their original planning of the God Engine. All a bunch of ancient history stuff, point is he's magical! As an ignitor, he's granted the ability to transfer his soul to new hosts via masks, worn objects, etc. Corvikara's on the search for his old squad of ignitors whom are somewhere on Alos. They were separated during what was essentially a catastrophic "reshaping" of the planets life.
Hopskotch is a local Leavelo found nested next to where Ava lives. Leavelo are one of the many wildlife that strive on Alos. Specifically, while they sleep, they keep their tails popped up out of the ground as a defensive tactic.
A sassy little Hosthopper who gains control of a Sentry. Hosthoppers are a species found deep in the forelorn caves of Alos. How did she make it out!?
Sharpside leads a bloodthirsty quest to find Corvikara for reasons unknown.
Along with that he also is rebuilding a new race of Sentries that he nurtures and treats as a society. Striving to live and survive as long as they can.
