Shards of Alexander
The Crystals of Light shine as the beacons of Altana’s will. Each Crystal is responsible for providing and managing a specific function of Alexander, allowing the crew to survive and continue their endless journey through the void.
The fire Crystal controls and maintains the weapon systems of Alexander, providing power for the ammunition manufacturing arrays and the main artillery.
The ice Crystal controls and maintains the climate and environmental systems of Alexander, providing power for said systems and dictating the weather.
The wind Crystal controls and maintains the engine systems of Alexander, providing the necessary power for the impulse thrusters and jump capabilities of the ship.
The earth Crystal controls and maintains food production and agriculture on board Alexander, providing power to the hydroponics facilities and nourishment to the plant and animal life used in food production.
The lightning Crystal controls and maintains the general power distribution and gravitational systems throughout Alexander. It produces electricity for the miscellaneous systems and citizens of Alexander, making the influence of the lightning Crystal the most broad in terms of presence on board the ship.
The water Crystal controls and maintains the water and bioreclamation systems on board Alexander, providing power to those facilities most needed by the citizenry to live comfortable, healthy lives.
Each of the Eidolons holds dominion over one of the crystals, and thus serve as the masters of those mortals working in close conjunction with these systems.
