Hello. You don’t know me, and I don’t know you. Our time together will be worth it. I’m Xi’Tra Zader Khu II, zimi reporter of the Republic News Network. What I’m about to share must be told for it will ripple through the galaxy soon enough.
A pivotal moment is happening on Terra Firma, home of the infamous humans. Don’t know it? Well, how about a Red Flagged planet under the Primitive Culture Protection Act? Now your attention is peaked. An asteroid crashed on the surface, but this did not kill them. Strange, outlandish paranormal events are happening that magic and science cannot explain. The population is mutating, changing into hybrid beings with power half equalling their hideous nuclear weapons.
I’m here to share my notes, investigations, and interviews from that planet. Sadly I cannot collect all of them, just from a few mutants and a convicted mercenary that I trust, as pictured below. What really happened to Terra Firma? Is this coincidence, or conspiracy? I’m risking my career to share this confidential information. It’s up to you to sift through the information and discover who’s behind the Wave’s creation.
– Xi’Tra Zader Khu II
Not all is what it seems when an asteroid, coincidently, crashes into the Pacific Ocean on December 21, 2012, bringing forth a mysterious wave of change on the world. The human population slowly transforms into magical beings, pitting everybody against each other on religion and race than ever before. Scott Dunne and Katie Walsh are the newly transformed, called terrans, and must survive to get home.
But the earth is not alone. An alien battle group’s member Jaruka Teal is caught in the event and in doing so, the earth more threatening than before, and his friends must find a way to rescue him. It’s up to Jaruka, Scott and Katie to work together and get to safety before the inevitable becomes their fate.

Four months since The Wave, Earth is still adjusting and adapting to the terran transformations, magic, and the realization they are not alone in the galaxy. Scott Dunne and Katie Walsh haven’t left their hometown for months but learned much of their new talents, and Jaruka Teal’s depression spirals further down the hole while doing a meager job, unable to leave the planet.
Robert Walsh—Katie’s big brother and firstborn of the winemaking family—is uncovering a correlation between terran magic, the Wave crystals, and ghost manifesting in brute force. And everybody is turning a blind eye against a possible threat.
With the arrival of familiar off-worlders from Jaruka’s life helping out and the government making moves for a better quality of life for humans and terrans, it’s only a matter of time before Robert’s discovery turns against them.
