The Homeworld of Humanity
Eden is the seat of power and cradle of life of Humanity. As with the Verin, it is only within the last couple millenia that Humanity has reached for the stars and taken flight to land among its many worlds, to grow, and expand, and thrive. Even with all this growth, however, Eden remains its home, a gleaming palace of a billion colors sprawling with criss-crossed swarms of glistening traffic and impressive edifices built upon. The planet has grown and collapsed many times. Under its fresh growth and splendor are the old scars of world wars past—pockets with traces of radiation, forests turned to deserts, and swaths of land carved by the melting of ice caps. These scars do not mar the world, however. Humanity has rebuilt, it has made life from the ash and desolation of earlier eras.
And Humanity formed plenty of the dust of the ground, and breathed into its lands the breath of life; and the Earth became a living soul. Its true name is Eden, and Eden it will once more be known as.
