WAR OF CHANGEEVERYTHING IS ABOUT TO CHANGEAs the years passed, the number of true pairs increased; however, they continued to live in the shadows, catering to the whims of the mundane. Some loathed the life, the existence dealt to them while others enjoyed the simple pleasures, the simple comforts of life. Seven Moons kept watch over them all, instructing them and assisting them, but for many, the attitudes and ideals of the organization were smoldering, suffocating. With Seven Moons and the mundanes, they could not grasp the freedom, the power dangling before their eyes.
The uprising began with whispers of discontent that gained momentum as they spread through the Academy. In the beginning, rebellion was a dream, a fantasy, a figment—developed by the repressed and carried forward due to the nature of humanity. No one expected the call to sound, and no one expected the call to be answered. However, it happened. During the dark hours of a moonless night, the halls of the Academy bled while the spell cast by Seven Moons broke. Without Seven Moons, the rebellion began courting absurd notions, believing themselves to be far superior to the mundanes. They hated leading their lives in the shadows, so they began to plot, planning to gain the recognition that they deserved.
Their plans dissolved into a war against the mundanes—spells against weaponry. People screamed and cried out in terror while the death tolls mounted higher and higher; however, the true pairs refused to relent in their mission, wanting to find a place for themselves. Eventually, the mundane governments decided to appease the rebellion groups, putting together a large press conference and listening to the demands, and after deciding on a set of stipulations, they caved to the true pairs. With their victory secured, the bloodshed ceased as the true pairs withdrew to their newfound home.
Selene Isle became the headquarters for true pairs across the world, opening its doors to everyone with the capability to participate in spell battles. The rebellion groups and the remaining vestiges of Seven Moons competed for control and eventually settled into the shadows, allowing others to step into positions of power. The Isle prospered as time wore on; however, the rebellion groups felt slighted, not entirely content with the outcome of their campaign. Some believed the Isle was the answer to their prayers while others wanted the ability to walk amongst the mundanes without fear. The contrasting opinions resulted in an underlying tension.
During those years, the groups never found an answer, only glared at one another from across the street. As the years passed, the rebellion groups began to sense their previous repression, and with each passing year, activity within the underworld increased. With Wraith, Rapture, and Seven Moons competing for control, Selene Isle has turned into a battleground though a tentative peace remains, clinging to the isle and keeping a majority of the people unaware of the lurking danger.
