Lore[ | ]

Warning: this point onward contains spoilers.

They are known for being summoned by the Magi before The Great War.

The Qantari made contact with void dwellers in the first place, but couldn’t quite figure out how to bring them to this world, from their own. So Qantari propositioned the Old Empire to bring forth and enslave their gods. The Order of Magi in their thirst for knowledge and arcane secrets , helped them by constructing a city named Al-Akia around an ancient pyramid. Imperial Senate assigned Legatus Quintus Valerius Corvus to oversee the project, who made it work by replacing the charcoaled erstwhile champions with his three soldiers. The Magi bounded void dwellers to their will with the "wards" by conducting the "Gift" ritual. The Magus Marcus Domitius Crassus, the master of Zamedy Tower, had designed these wards.

In their boundless arrogance the Magi believed they had created Gods, when they merely made flesh that which was divine. The Qantari managed to unravel the binding, which led to the Great War. At great cost, the Magi, and Imperial Army and Fleet managed to banish these beings from this world, thus ending the war. But the Old Empire fell, and the Order of Magi along with it.
