Queen Aubrey Stormhand has been at the throne for 20 years. A peaceful reign rebuilding a kingdom once thought lost. However, not everything is as peaceful as it seems. The Slipstream, a natural force from which everything is born and must return, seeks to reclaim the planet that Aubrey's people inhabit. Seeking answers, Queen Aubrey looks to the sky in hopes of finding either a new planet, or a way to stop nature itself.
Overall tone: Gundam meets maybe Guran Lagann?
|An unconscious entity from which all of matter is composed. The cycle is as such: Everything is born of the Slipstream, everything returns to the Slipstream. This natural force congeals itself into particles that exist everywhere, flowing over physical objects like veins, and pooling in specific areas. These particles can be manipulated by certain individuals, such as witches (beings born from the Slipstream), or the learned method of taking the Slipstream into oneself. Manipulating matter if you're not a being born of it is incredibly taxing, often shortening the user's lifespan, and can be painstaking. If death does not come for these users, often their minds become lost to them in the process.|
|A group of people dedicated to the exploration of outer space. Comprised mostly of individuals who are trained, and in training, for space travel. This group has the blessing and funds of the queendom, with the utimate goal of either finding a new habitable planet, or overcoming the Slipstream itself.|
|A congress of wealthy entities on the planet who form their own space program with the intent of destroying the slipstream to save their enterprises. Opposes Queen Aubrey's view of relocating to a new planet. Their aesthetic is a clean, sleek, militant contrast to Aubrey's hodgepodge team. More time & money to develop technology.|
|A fleet of spacebound individuals, whose planet has already been destroyed, seeking out the Allegiant's still-healthy planet with the intent of taking it for themselves. The crew of this massive base seem to mirror that of the Allegiant, and they flaunt some vague knowledge about the Allegiant's fate. Their leader is "Mechaubrey", an alternate-dimension version of Aubrey in which her planet has already been destroyed. In that universe, bio-altering has been developed to extreme measures, allowing this 'Aubrey' to live hundreds of years, preserving the body by intaking particles through the Slipstream, however decaying the mind.|
