Fragment Faction: Unaffiliated
In-between the great movements of the powerful factions of Fragments, the Coalition of Reality and its enemies, squirms life. Voidspace is vast and endless, and Fragments flourish across it, forming their own small bands or staking out as individuals. They reject the COR's overbearing rule, but maintain their own scruples and their own goals, separate from one another. Some may find themselves allied, while others merely wish for their home Timeline's independent safety. Regardless of their wishes, they are grouped together here, sorted by the small assemblies they have formed.

A strange and desolate Timeline, once devoid of mortals
and filled with an alien conceptual wavelength.
Beyond Hope's Ocean
A reserved Frag with the ability to communicate with Timelines and diagnose causes of instability. Despite this boon, they prefer to stay safely within the Spire.
A scam artist who spends his days away from the Spire, visiting Timelines close to destruction to steal artifacts and people... to resell after their collapses.
An outdoorsy and rough Frag with low empathy and little interest in other people, whose time is spent exploring the outer towers or at Nervous Dew's side.
The most public Frag hailing from the Spire, riddled with trauma over his ability to render gold inert and the problems such a boon has brought him.
Hail by Glacier
A hyperempathetic Fragment who considers his Spire-given power to be a curse, able to remove the pain of others by absorbing it as physical wounds on himself.
The leader of the Spire, having inherited it after the kidnapping of those previous. Her calm nature belies insecurity at her position and a burning drive to prove herself.
A shy Frag who lost their Spire-given ability after being kidnapped and tortured during the wars, and now tries to garden peacefully and repair their life.
Melli masks his self-serving and manipulative nature under a exuberant exterior, keeping his power of mimicking others's conceptual wavelengths secret.
An anxious Frag who struggles to mitigate stress through any means. Had two children with Fremyn, the first in the Spire, who were promptly adopted out.
The magically-gifted adopted child of the original Spire leaders, eager to fill the great expectations placed on him and protect his homeland from outsiders.
A failed attempt at immortality - a robot made to preserve the mind of a brilliant mage, but foreign magic introduced during the War unravelled them into a new person.
Shy and easily-flustered, Powdersnow has taken it upon himself to serve as the Spire's tired ambassador, stemming the tide of researchers, tourists, and invaders.
Ivy's boyfriend who oft seems ditzy at first glance. Behind his cheerful persona is an observant, adaptive Frag with an ability to alter other's conceptual wavelengths.
The Bitter Scope
A swath of Timelines unified in their harsh frigidness,
ruled partially by the orphan Fragment Meleph.
A pocket Timeline that can travel through voidspace,
offering help and assistance to all it comes across.
The idealistic, cheerful, and optimistic founder of the Dreamrider and its beloved leader, blessed heavily by Polumesec with dreams that can affect reality.
A self-depreciating Frag hailing from a collapsed Timeline alongside Trylliant. Trauma over their inability to save it has left Perle anxious and overprotective of Tryl.
Underground / Black Market
A network of hidden places and people, shops bustling
with illegal items, the sale of mortals, and cutthroat politics.

Broken away from the Coalition, the Haven
remains a safe place for Fragments to live out mortal-esque lives....
An ex-Overseer who fled the COR to form a safe place for exhausted and burnt-out Frags to live more peaceful lives, away from the stress of responsibility.
Triple One Hundred (AAA-100)
Filled to the brim with Fragments and few mortals,
its reputation for being the most populous Frag-only Timeline is well-earned.
No characters yet!
The Great Pink Sea (AA-91)
Filled with a magic-dense magenta ocean,
the Sea produces Frags almost yearly, oft sending them off to the COR.
With both Wage and Xiphi absent - both of whom he dearly misses - Aurore has risen up as the Sea's leader, though his laidback attitude can be questionable.
An emotionally volatile Frag who harbors a sea of resentment towards Wage for acting selfish and impulsive by abandoning them. Very vocal about his critiques.
Others & Individuals
A miscellaneous grouping for those who do not
belong to any one Timeline or faction.
Though Heaven hails from the Spire, he has long since shed that part of his identity, passing as an orphan Fragment simply interested in rare Mag-related curios.
Key to Life
A dour and skeptical Frag who investigates strange Timelines to catalogue them and try to discern the conceptual source of their unique properties.
A powerful Frag and scientist living in a small pocket Timeline, churning experiments to grow a "perfect" Fragment... definition pending. In love with Taffy...?
A vigilante, freeing Timelines from dictators and enacting justice on wronged Fragments - though this makes him quite unpopular with both the COR and its detractors.
