- "The ancient texts are unclear. It appears we were invaded by a race that was more technological than animate. We called on the gods for protection, and they came to our aid, providing us with the knowledge we needed to convert our living resources to weapons. We defeated the threat, and, empowered by our victory, we gradually became conquerors of other species and civilizations."
Eons ago, a species of star-shaped organics created the Silentium to resemble their form, in much the same way that humanoid sentients created bipedal droids. Though the organics were wiped out by a radiation storm from a nearby supernova, their droid creations lived on. These droids continued to reproduce and improve themselves, and developed a culture based on the prime numbers of five, seven, and eleven.
Many of them took on the form of geometric shapes, with the circle being the "holiest" of shapes. Thousands of the wisest members of the droid race created powerful fifty-kilometer spheroid bodies. Two influential members of this giant variety included The One and The Other, and the others were collectively called The Rest. However, this culture of order and symmetry was soon challenged by the chaotic Abominor, self-constructing droids with a lust for power.
The two sides fought a galactic war until the galaxy's native organic species rose up and forced the droid species to flee.
