MOLD THE WORLD IN OUR IMAGE
"The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting."
After the failure of a government-initiated quarantine of the building of CitySpire, New York is in an uproar. CitySpire Center is home to many of New York’s prominent figures and businesses, including Avery Laboratories - the leading laboratory in experimental genetic testing. The building was shut down and scoured by government officials, but those who wished to remain hidden were safe.
The Second Generation project, a genetic modification to make humans better forms of themselves, has been in the works for decades. Now, the fruits of their labors are coming into fruition. What they did not know, however, was that they were missing a piece of the puzzle, and that piece was held by a unknown enemy. The war fought thousands of years ago had obliterated an entire race, leaving the humans dominant of the planet and blotting out any others from history. Or so they thought… And now the battle for the planet is starting again, but this time the humans have no idea what they are up against. Hidden amongst the pages of history, those who hold the piece to the ultimate state of human have declared that they wish the Earth to be theirs once more.HOME || RULES || CHARACTERS || PLOT || ASK

mythology - undines or water nymphs
The origin of the Undines (or Ondines) can best be traced all the way back to ancient Greece wherein mythology cites a clan of nymphs called Oceanides claimed the waters of the world as their home. The water nymphs or water spirits, belong to the Water Elemental, are are usually found in forest pools and waterfalls. They are said to have beautiful voices, which can be sometime heard singing over the sound of water that entices those that hear it. These beings are believed to be the daughters of Titan and his wife Tethys. Their presence in the oceans was legendary among seafarers. Mostly beneficent, Oceanides would aid water-travelers in navigation and provide safe sea-ways.In European lore, Undines are fabled to be the wandering spirits of love-lorn women. According to some legends, Undines can receive a soul when they marry a human man and bear his child. This aspect of them has them to be a popular subject motif for romantic and tragic literature. Often with sailors being drawn to them by their tears of sorrow that composed the salty seas when wept having lost at love. Tales indicate that these female water spirits are enchantingly beautiful and reputed to be relatively benign, however, like most female spirits they’ve got a temper when crossed and can be force to be reckoned with.
