The Great Betrayal: Sundering of Existence
And It's All Over For You, Electric Blue...Tell Me, What Can I Do?
Spark was a single plane of existence, connected to the planet Galvan in the Galvanic System of Luridity Galaxy, until about 25 years prior to Truth Spark. The society of Sparks enjoyed centuries of peace and comfort, secretly making trips to the Earth-like world of Galvan like tourists, happily living in simple villages and cities on their own plane. Until The Great Betrayal, when a faction of Sparks, one million strong and power hungry, destroyed everything. The faction gained a following by promising an upgrade to a life of unlimited luxury. It wasn't enough that they could travel to the planet adjacent to their plane, Galvan. It wasn't enough they could create small, necessary things with their powers. It wasn't enough that their simple life ensured, truly, that they had little needs to meet.
The betrayers siphoned off The Current to grow their powers. Glutting themselves, however, resulted in a catastrophic overload. The explosion was so large it shattered the Spark plane. While the betrayers--who would later be known as Tracers--were unharmed due to their swell of power, hundreds of thousands of the remaining Sparks were torn apart as, to their horror and against all their known laws of thermodynamics, their molecules, their energy simply...vanished. But as the Sparks and their plane diminished and the energy of those lost seemed to disappear completely, a second plane was born. The Tracer plane grew rapidly from what was essentially the shredded remains, and those "lost" molecules and "destroyed" masses of energy ultimately forged that glittering city the faction had desired.
No, they still wanted.And to get what they wanted, all of it, they would need more power. The plan was a grand one: using a massive influx of power, the faction would mold a glimmering city of splendor, and there, they would want for nothing. There, they would be able to summon anything--small, big, enormous, exquisite!--at will from either their own ability to imagine or from Galvan.
In their dream city, they would be limitless.
The destruction of much of the Spark plane and the majority of its people has left them shattered but not broken. Still, even as they rebuild, their numbers dwindle, and if they can't rescue their people from the planet's surface, all could be lost.
