- "Legend says the jewels fell to this planet during the awesome cataclysm which severed our cluster of the galaxy from the main body and created the Red Nebula. It is our belief that the gems' aura protects us from the destructive fate which seemed our destiny from the time of the cataclysm."
- ―Red Nebula priest
An awesome cataclysm severed the Red Nebula from the outskirts of the galaxy into the depths of Wild Space. This drift brought with it the Red Nebula's lone inhabited planet, as well as the species that lived on it. The cataclysm brought two gems to the planet, which the species' cadre of priests dubbed the Great Life Jewels. It also created a large field of meteors around the world, which created a constant barrage of debris to impact on the world. Only the power of the Great Life Jewels protected the Untouched Valley and the temple therein from harm.
