What if there was a faction of Eliksni that fought for the City? Here's my back story: At one point, a Dreg of the House of Kings named Saksi led 29 others to escape to the City. Saksi believed that the way to restore the former glory of the Eliksni was through an alliance with the humans. He thought that Eliksni and humans were not all that different. They came to the City unarmed. Upon entering the city, they were taken into custody and brought to the Vanguard. They set up a comm link with Variks for translation and the Dregs revealed their intentions. The Vanguard decided that if they lived in the City for 3 months as normal citizens, then they would speak again. 3 months later, diplomacy was attempted, and the House of Light was formed. The Traveler provided them with Ether, and the Eliksni would one day flourish in the company of humans. Now, regarding gameplay, really all this might do is add another playable race. EDIT: I've changed my mind about how they get Ether. Guardians must give Ether Seeds, much like a material donation to a faction. I tried tagging it "non canon".[armory][/armory]
Edited by startrekker96: 9/5/2016 9:24:20 AMConsidering Variks wonders if there were once Eliksni heroes on Eliksni Prime who, like the Guardians, were imbued with the Light of the Great Machine, I would say it's not too far of a stretch for this to happen in either D2 or D3. It's my belief that the Traveler only abandoned the Eliksni after it became apparent that if she stayed, she would be destroyed..and with her gone, any other races the Darkness encountered would be enslaved or destroyed. Like on Earth, she was severely damaged (wounded?) before arriving, and decided to make a last stand on what would be the final planet of her journey. Thus creating us, the Guardians of Humanity, and the Last Custodians of the Light.
