The First War

Fallout included the creation of the various parallel worlds the Seven Peoples occupy. The last ice age? Due to the war. Earthquakes splitting up continents? Due to the war.

Notte was one of the handful few who survived it, called Original, and it has a marked effect on the way he relates to other living beings.
