Inception

The Wise One and his entire race were originally a mysterious group of initiates known for their mastery over all four elements: Venus, Mercury, Jupiter, and Mars. Their research delved into the deepest aspects of Alchemy, and their practices became known as revolutionary in the realms of philosophy and psynergy.

It had occurred during the earliest study of Alchemy. A young monk and Jupiter adept by the name of Varoq was examining the relationship between pure, or non-elemental psynergy and the second stage of alchemy — albedo — when he dropped a nearby sample of lodestone into his solution by mistake.

Disappointed that he’d have to start over again, he aborted the flow of pure psynergy and attempted to use Jupiter psynergy to hover the stone away—but something happened.

Immediately the vessel holding the solution had shone a brilliant green, and a pale light began to emanate from both monk and lodestone. The room started to vibrate. Varoq’s eyes grew wide, and as he collapsed under the room’s now ineffable resonance, a vision appeared to him out of blackness.

“… Ah… thou hast achieved it,” muttered an old voice in the dark. “First step to transcendent alchemy… the genesis of coronium. Comprehend thou the immensity of such inception?”.

Varoq shook his head vigorously. Another voice spoke, with a softer tone. “The allotropic essence of corporeal Aether, young monk. This is beginning of Sangreal‘s materialization… the creation of Lapis Exilis.”

“This process hath been achieved not in the last twelve hundred years, Varoq,” spoke a feminine voice. Out of the darkness then came three figures, two men and a woman.

“We are wardens of the Tree of Life, young monk,” said the first voice. “I am known as Osiris.”
“I am called Vitruvius.”
“And I am Gaia, dear Varoq,” said the lady. “We call our arboreal home, Laerad.”

“I… am confused,” stuttered Varoq. “What reasons have Gods and Goddesses to visit me? Why come you here?”

“The process here conceived is a mark of evolution. You have been invited by our grandmother, Wyrd, to merge with the soul of the world. Henceforth, you and your fellows shall be known as Incarnadi; Avatars of Alchemy.”

As the room began to come back into focus, he heard the fading voices of the holy trio.

“Goodbye, young monk… we shall meet again.”

      I wanted a two-letter name and thought it sounded cool. Pretty simple, I know. 😛
