Earth is one of the primary locations where the Tales of Arcadia trilogy takes place.

Earth is the third planet from the sun and is located in the Solar System. Humans believe it to be the only planet to harbor life, but has been visited by alien life before and is the home to some of them.

Description

Earth is a terrestrial planet made of 71% water and the rest is land. It's the third planet from the Sun and is the largest of the terrestrial planets. With a radius of 3,959 miles, Earth is the fifth largest planet in the Solar System, and it's the only one known for sure to have liquid water on its surface.

History

Creation

The Arcane Order formed the Earth around 4.54 billion years ago with the Titans as their handmaidens, approximately one-third the age of the universe, by accretion from the solar nebula, intending for the world to be a paradise for all living beings.

Volcanic outgassing probably created the primordial atmosphere and then the ocean, but the early atmosphere contained almost no oxygen. The Earth's Moon is thought to have formed as a result of a single, large head-on collision. The impacting object probably had a mass comparable to that of Mars, and the impact probably occurred near the end of the period of giant impacts. The collision kicked into orbit some of the impactor's mantle, which then coalesced into the Moon. The impact was probably the last in the series of mergers that formed the Earth.

Billions of years later, the Order saw mankind's corruption increase in the world, and thus sought to restore balance between magic and mortal by making magickind the dominant species, but this only caused more pain, which Nari came to see, unlike Bellroc and Skrael. Eventually, Bellroc and Skrael decided to wipe their own creation from existence like a flood by releasing raw, uncontrolled magic through the breaking of the Genesis Seals, which kept the Titans from awakening and connecting with the Heartstone beneath the land which would become Arcadia Oaks, the center of the universe. It was this reason why Nari defected from the Order.

First Alien Encounter

The first known alien to visit Earth was an unnamed Akiridion who crash-landed while being chased by some Zerons. She was attacked by Spar the Spiteful, however they soon came to an agreement when she told him that she too was sent to safeguard something. She was interrupted when she said the word primitive, what she needed to keep safe was never revealed. Spar and a group of human cavemen helped push her ship over a cliff to help it gain velocity, after which she took off.
