This is Ascension Peak, for it was here that Jenos stepped into the sky and became one with the cosmos. Centuries passed as the faithful searched the stars, whispering that Jenos lived in the night sky. Most thought them mad. Many hopeful pilgrims arrived; lost souls, forever wishing they too could leave their past behind.

Until a broken soldier witnessed the impossible. The Ascended returned. Jenos revealed what he had seen among the stars: the countless wonders, the unimaginable power, and a darkness that would one day threaten the Realm.

The Ruby Throne Room was abuzz with the news: Jenos had returned. While her court gossiped, Lian spoke in hushed tones with a hulking figure: Khan, the Primus of House Aico, the General of its armies, and Chief Adviser to the Ruby Throne. If Jenos could be convinced to join the Magistrate's armies, Lian could end this war; a victory that would give House Aico more power than ever before.

The siege moves. Khan rallies his forces to battle, leading House Aico's royal guard to recruit the so-called god. And Khan does not take 'no' for an answer.

The Return of Jenos[edit | edit source]

Jenos ascends into the heavens during the Second Scourge of the goblins centuries ago. A massive following of monks stay after at Ascension Peak to await his return. Many, many generations later, after the dissolution of Sentinels, Buck joins the alcove as a monk in hopes of repairing himself from a life in the military.

One faithful night, Jenos descends from the sky to encounter a lone monk still waiting - Buck. Jenos immediately shares what he has learned from heavens: the infinite power of the cosmos and a Darkness that is to come.

Siege of Ascension Peak[edit | edit source]

The Ruby Throne hears about Jenos returning and sends forces to Ascension Peak. Khan is tasked with recruiting the descended god to their side in hopes of utilizing his powers to end the Civil War once and for all. This is the beginning of the Siege of Ascension Peak.

With the help of Jenos, the Resistance could achieve their first small victory. After these events, Khan returns from the siege to continue fighting for House Aico. Buck decides to join the Resistance.
