The Lateral

A cosmic realm tangent to reality. Inside of it is the collective subconscious of the world. Certain people have either active or passive connections to it, allowing them to manipulate space, time, or the very energy of the realm known as “orbital energy”. Practically, it can be used as a source of renewable, efficient power. This makes orbital energy, and those who can mine it, very profitable.

Graskali

The expansive Kingdom of this world. Historically, it has been ruled in tandem by an Ordio and a Corvan monarch, but in modern times it has been split by a long civil war (also known as “the Split”) with no end in sight.

The Wastes

The area outside of Graskali’s borders. The Lateral is ever-changing and uncontrollable in the Wastes, with chaotic energy spikes and drops causing certain regions to be in winter or summer for years. The only people who dwell in the Wastes are Perrot agents, nomads, or people who do not wish to be found.

Perrot Corporation

An unregulated corporate empire run by Chairman Adelaide Perrot. The Corporation rose to prominence during the Split, providing orbital war machines to both sides. Nowadays, it provides any sort of orbital machinery, from appliances to weaponry, using the Wastes’ rich resource of natural orbital energy to make them.

Perrot Wolf

An agent of the Perrot Corporation. They are known for carrying out the Chairman’s messier jobs.
