The Gods were pleased in the creation of this melded world.
In the beginning.
Now their ideals for this Nexus clash, and each one feels a sense of jealousy towards the other. Every single one of them wishes to become the sole ruler, the prominent ‘God of All Gods,’ but this can not be. There can only be one true purveyor of the Lands… how far will they go to reach further in the heavens?
Right now, a few stray away from the pack--- destined to achieve this goal of becoming the one, almighty god. And every one of their plans enfolds around one sole idea: to manipulate the human’s inhabiting Nexus.
The more darker of Gods seek to please those who they know will gain power quickly, and not succumb under weakness. Jenova, Goddess of Resurrection, and the Harbinger of Death seeks to pluck the strings of her own son, Sephiroth…for, if she can get him to take over the people of Nexus, she can then simply employ him in one fell swoop, keeping the reigns in her hands.
She is not the only one. Gods have swarmed the earth in many forms…aeons, guardian forces, espers, moogles….their race to become the one true God may seem childish and stubborn, but as the souls---both dead and living--- interact with one another, their powers become blurred. Some wish to seek out evil…some good, some, even neutral. But all hold the same purpose.
A legion of dead also will start to rise. They can, too, manipulate the living.
With all this information collected, scientists in the newly resurrected ShinRA labs are experimenting on the fiends that have risen from the ground, and the dead they have captured. They wish to perhaps find a way to ‘kill’ them once more, so that the only the living may reside on Nexus.
To find solace, groups of people have begun to revert back to old ways, that may have worked before their old worlds were saved. Yevon, in Spira, is housing those dead that once had been sent by the Lady Yuna once more…and perhaps, if its soul proprietor can be found, he too will attempt to rule over the earth. SOLDIERs are once again being recruited in Midgar, and aided by Rufus ShinRA and his legion of Turks. Even Lord Larsa, from the fallen Archadia, has showed interest in rebuilding an army, if a war were to break out (though he wishes this to be the last resort.)
Fiends are accumulating by the dozens. No where is truly safe. The sweet havens of local cities may prove to have some sort of comfort factor, and perhaps these factions do as well.
Be alert with new faces. You can never truly know who you are dealing with. And be well prepared and equipped when venturing out alone.
