Fragment Faction: Original 24
The Fragments who take care of and nanny the Original 24 Timelines, the first ever conceived and created. They are an incredible piece of living history and art, being the first stories spun by the creator gods in the early years of the known world. However, their status as ancient and unfinished amateur passion projects has left them in various states of disarray - often missing integral pieces that provided structure and stability to the other Timelines and requiring extensive upkeep by their resident Fragments - these characters - to avoid collapse.
Still, much worth is found in the Originals - as they are wholly separate from the Main Timeline, with completely unique magical foundations, stories, and rules. You can read an informational article about the Timelines on the website here.

The first Timeline ever created... wholly corrupted by
Bereave's cruel tortures and influence, it now sits in aching shambles.
Though not born as a Frag, Cascade's conquests as leader of the Mercs has elevated him. Once a rough criminal, Alpha has warped him closer to caring.
A Frag taken under the wing of the Rapture Cult - which seeks to destroy Alpha to put it to rest - half-gold from self-harm and always suffering.
An apathetic and exhausted Frag, long corrupted by Alpha's Bereave-induced radiation and long captured by powerful criminal Cascade Circe.
A cold and harsh land, filled with alpine forests and glaciers stained red by
centuries of war and bloodshed, where trust is never a given.
A needling and snide self-serving Fragment, convinced that the only way to survive in Beta is by accurately predicting people's behavior.
A cold and distant veteran, sick of Beta's wanton, senseless bloodshed and wanting nothing more than to remain safe in his great cities on the seafloor.
The strongest in Beta, smiling down at the others - smug and comfortable in the knowledge that none could topple him or disrupt his enjoyment.
A renown explorer of Beta, Gamma, and voidspace who craves the adoration of mortals under his banner and sees himself as a final bastion if Zirc ever "loses it".
Once the producer of the Originals' augmetia,
now long-subjugated and owned by the warlords of Beta.
A irritable diplomat who has brokered deals with other Timelines for packages of Gamma-mined augmetia for eons - both before and after the Beta occupation.
Beia was kidnapped to live in Beta instead, under Zirconia's hand... though as Zirc's interest in him has waned, his efforts to assist the rebels have waxed.
A self-assured cave diver who leads a veritable army of explorers into Gamma's tightest squeezes in search of new mines. Is remarkably down-to-earth for a Fragment.
A cave explorer and spelunker obsessed with his life underground, who rarely sees the sun. Works underneath Brine to find new veins of augmetia.
Once chairman of Gamma's council, and helped broker an alliance with Beta... that ended in the invasion and subjugation of Gamma. Appointed as manager still by Beta.
Extroverted, Nale governs much of the day-to-day of underground Gamma communities and owns many of the industry and supply companies in the tunnels.
A dedicated worker within Gamma, managing most of the mining companies under Aite and Mivis. Years of being blamed have soured his opinion of the rebellion.
An advocate for the cultural unification of Gamma's surface and caver communities, often mistaken as naive for his general kindness and soft-spoken voice.
Though in charge of arranging much of the underground's food supply and transferring its excess to the surface, Pomona spends most of his time deep caving and diving.
A caver who was captured by Zirconia and brought back to Beta as an unwilling prize. Now Aite has negotiated for his release back to Gamma - a world newly unfamiliar.
A troublesome, self-focused warrior who was once seen as Gamma's best answer to the invaders, only to be flung aside like a gnat. Now plays at being a maid?
The visible head of Gamma's rebellion, taking orders from the mysterious Austenite. Quick thinking and adaptability have kept him alive and free.
Comprised of many nesting layers of reality, the people
of Delta aren't convinced that they've reached the outermost shell....
One half of the remains of Delta's Frags. Talented, idealistic, and somewhat naïve. Wants to imagine a world out from under their creator's hands at any costs.
A strange and tortured Timeline, where its people live disparate lives
as many tiny sparks of a fractured infinite timeloop.
Catastrophically destroyed, the lone survivor of Zeta
is its sole Natural Fragment, living now at the COR.
The most stable of the Originals, in great part due to
an enormous and blistering magic circle none truly understand the extent of.
Though upbeat Aryl has considerable power as owner of most of Eta's companies, he in truth is terribly lonely - abandoned by his fellow Fragments.
Distrusting that Eta is truly safe - believing that its precious magic circle is nothing more than a bandaid over a festering wound - Phenyl refuses to help manage it.
Once closed away from all the other Timelines, in recent years
the elusive and secretive Theta has allowed an alliance with Beta.
A cheerful soul who maintained many relationships during Theta's isolation through use of email, though he obscured his true identity to his friends.
Though Ciro manages Theta's public relations, arranges its festivals, and handles incoming requests, his true heart belongs firmly with Szeretet, his beloved ex.
A vestige of Theta's once-leader, Dumortis, who died to Bereave long ago. Revived at Vuaria's request, he tries to find a place for himself.
A shy, nervous, and easily-flustered assistant to Vivinite, only free of crippling anxiety in the warm confines of Theta's basement community.
A bit of a vain and lazy practical mage, an enjoyer of being spoilt and hedonism in turn - quite comfortable in the security and safety of Theta.
One of few who ventures out of Theta's arcing interiors and ceilings to survey the untamed wilderness beyond, dearly in love with the sun and moon.
A reclusive and abrasive Fragment with an army of constructs that he uses to spy on mortals and, supposedly, keep the peace as Theta's police.
The cheerful and outgoing proprietor of Theta's basement, an underground and sprawling community centered around love and physicality.
With most of its Universe Core melted into voidspace,
the people of Iota had to get creative with their limited space and travel....
An eccentric Wardmaster who diligently studies Eta's magic circle in order to keep the remaining islands of Iota from collapsing into voidspace.
The founder (and manager!) of most of Iota's expos and events, bubbly and bright and burdened with a hunger for attention... though inside he's dead tired.
Rather than a straight line like other Timelines, Kappa is
shaped like a donut... leading to an array of strange time-based effects.

Once kept alive through the Magnitude Fragment Peresekat,
Lambda catastrophically collapsed once his magic was removed from its heart.
Lambda has no Natural Fragments.
Extended damage to itself has roused Mu as a sentient creature
unto itself, all flesh and bone and blood, determined to protect its residents.
Though friendly on the surface, Aenoxa hides a cruel and sadistic streak, feeling safe within Mu's overprotective flesh and enjoying its violence.
Most Beloved of its Fragments, as decided by Mu itself, stalwart Feyrisx manages the sentient Timeline's erratic behavior and keeps it controlled.
Eternally cracking apart, the COR installed a construct to
stabilize Nu, only to discover some strange sort of sentience emanating from it.
No characters yet!
A Timeline that none have been allowed to enter
for undisclosed reasons, with only a single Fragment escaping it.
The Frag who didn't escape Xi. Has suffered dearly and is, quite frankly, tired of it - and now seeks comfort, happiness, and pleasure despite their trauma.
Torn apart by Bereave early in its lifespan, in all honesty,
Omicron stood no chance.
Omicron has no Natural Fragments.
With civilizations separated from one another by
canyons piercing into voidspace, the help of an AI is welcome.
The mage who made Qwerty, though he still doesn't understand where it got the excess magic from. Concerned now about it spiralling out of control.
The prideful and narcissistic leader of Pi, who once basked in his people's adoration... now usurped in popularity by Qwerty and feeling a bit lost in life.
A Timeline where space and time are not stable, dying at random,
where only the written word can recall these lost places.
Cycles of extreme droughts and floods has buried Sigma's civilization
deep within the deepest trenches, under powerful protective domes.
The cultured leader of Sigma, who has spent many years honing an array of practical skills that contrast against his dignified, calm demeanor and style.
An eccentric, lonely, and talkative tinkerer-mage whose hands are always full with a project or another - both his own and tasks given by Asa, his ex.
A humid, hot, and magically-dense jungle, filled with
sentient trees and flora - and a distinct lack of any fauna.
Once a relatively stable Original, now plagued
by a sudden shift in all of its people's memories.
No characters yet!
One of few Originals thankful to the COR for
their assistance with stability, though taken to... somewhat of an extreme.
A cursed Timeline, suffering from extreme corruption and destruction.
Its people have taken to blaming magic for their agony, and persecute mages bitterly.
The once-illustrious leader of Chi, who discovered how to dispose of magic and stabilize the Timeline. Now he seeks new methods in a journey of self-discovery.
Though not a mage, Isodose was sympathetic to magic not being wholly evil - but after being unwillingly adopted by a coven, is now on the run for treason.
The cold and efficient religious leader of Chi, serving in Eolith's stead, struggling to hold the Timeline together after his mentor and hero left.
Tired of traveling out of Chi to have their leg serviced by a mage, Oroide became a tinkerer - learning to reverse-engineering magitech to use electricity instead.
The polite and friendly ambassador to most mortals in Chi, who helps bridge the gap between its illustrious religious leaders and populace.
Moon's devoted, obsessive, and dedicated 'partner', always lurking in the shadows with a smug smirk - leaving most feeling uncomfortable.
A small Timeline that pulls people, places, and ideas from
other Timelines, dumping them all in a caustic ocean within it.
A mysterious Frag born long after Psi's birth, pulled from its caustic ocean by Horizons and utterly convinced he is its heart, having gained sentience.
Manager of most of Psi's government and master of exhausted faces, darting between the militia, medics, and mayors of its Universes.

struggles to keep its two distinct halves stable after Dijamant left them.
