I will say this before I get started. I am no writer, and my grammar sucks ************. With the back story, I will do my best. I just hope it is clear enough for all of you to get.
, is a planet torn by war for centuries. The 2 main faction on the planet are the Gallens, and the Curtzmans. They have been fighting so long that they forgot what they were fighting for. The war had become about hate and winning nothing else. Both side had developed Time Jumpers. These machines would let them send up to 2 people back in time 24 to 48 hours. Both sides used the jumpers to change history of battles lost, complete assassinations, and spying.
These people are a more freedom loving sect, that strive to knowledge and the arts. Their tech is very advanced. They remind me more of the Roman Empire that never died.
They are more of a Socialistic race that have extreme views on control and government. Their government is very large, and dominates their internet with control and also they doctor the news to suit their agenda. Overall they are not a bad people, they just do not know the truth behind what is going on in the world.
Their Tech is mostly either stolen from the Gallens, or copied from what they could learn from reverse engineering of the Gallens tech.
Noone knows or remembers how the war started, or why it is still being fought. Just that their side has to win, by any means necessary. The Time Jumpers were a last resort weapon for years, but grew into more popular use as the war raged on. With history changing and time lines sprouting up all the time, allot of the people on the planet had become very weak minded or crazy.
During the last years of the war, time rifts started to form all over the world, and people started to turn on their governments, destroying all they could. Like pack hunters, they would search for each other, then hide and gather their strength. Then when they were ready, they would lash out and systematically decimate an entire area.
It was 6 months later that the factions on Gallos figured out what was going on. Desperate to fix things, they called a truce and started to use the Jumpers to fix the problems, but what they didn't realize is that the Jumpers were the problem. With every Jump, the holes in time would get bigger. And more people would become what was now termed "The Taken".
Are mostly average citizens of the reigning factions that have been slowly loosing their minds from all the time shifts caused be the Jumpers. When the process 1st starts the Taken seem to be going insane. The lash out at anything and become homicidal. This could last from 5 minutes to several hours.
After the mind wipe is complete, they become vegetables, they cannot do anything. This stage will last for about a day. Once they are reprogrammed with the new consciousness, they immediately start to hide and seek out others like them. Never revealing their true purpose, unless exposed for what they truly are.
Once they linked up with the main group, they joined in on the plotting and planning for their coordinated attack on their objective. Patiently waiting until the time and opportunity was right. When it was, they would attack with precision and brutality that was unmeasured. Wiping out any and all life that is not like them.
