In the beginning, the King chose seven from among the Duxarium, an ancient race of Lumenorus, and transformed them into Arch-Lords. Through the powers infused in them, they were capable of forging gates into distinct realms within Lumenorus.

Commander Justin's daughters, Ladies Veronica and Ronwyn, have been elevated to Ambassadors, loyal to the Princess and her subjects. It would seem Captivenia is at its strongest. But then, the Phantor is not yet in chains....
