Nari, Douxie, and Merlin about the apocalyptic dangers of the Seals[src]

The Genesis Seals are ancient primal seals that contain the very essence of magic itself. If the Seals are ever broken, they'll unleash raw magic upon the world, ending all life in an arcane apocalypse.

The Seals are currently in possession of the Arcane Order, but without Nari, their defected member, Bellroc and Skrael cannot break and active them.

History

The Genesis Seals are said to be the oldest tales of the wizards' world; three primal seals which contain raw, chaotic magic within. If the Seals are even broken, then the raw magicks while be unleashed onto the world, wiping every living thing away like a flood.

The Arcane Order, after losing their faith in the balance, decided to search for the Genesis Seals and use their primordial power to unleash an apocalypse that would destroy all of humanity, along with the magical. Because of this, Merlin hid the Seals away and Nari abandoned the Order so that her twisted siblings, Bellroc and Skrael, could never carry out their evil plans.

Before dying, Merlin left Douxie and his friends a grimoire with a message in Ancient Draconic, revealing that to find the Seals, he must destroy the Staff of Avalon. After Charlemagne convinces him to do so, Douxie finds the Seals at Merlin's hideout. However, when Nari and everyone else (minus Krel) are captured by the Arcane Order, Douxie decides to use the Seals to trick the Order and trap them in a time loop long enough to rescue them all.

The Genesis Seals are currently in the Arcane Order's possession, but without Nari, they cannot be used to lay waste on the planet.

Abilities

If the Genesis Seals are broken, then raw, uncontrolled magic will be unleashed upon the world, wiping it like a flood and destroying everything in its wake.

However, all three members of the Arcane Order must be reunited to break each of the three Seals, otherwise the "summoning" will be ineffective. Without Nari, Bellroc and Skrael cannot accomplish their goal.

Trivia

  • "Genesis" means "origin" and/or "source", as the Genesis Seals are the very source of magic itself.
  • It is currently unknown what connection the Seals have to the Arcane Order, why all three are needed to break them, nor how they were created in the first place.
    • It is believed that the seals were used to keep the ancient Titans dormant and they can only be controlled by the Arcane Order members themselves.
    • In mythology, Titans were the primary deities of their time, until the Gods (more beautiful and powerful beings) came into existence, overthrowing the Titans and resulting in many of them being locked away in prisons. The members of the Arcane Order are described as demigods, either meaning they are lesser gods or children of the gods. If the seals are indeed used to keep the Titans asleep, this could partly explain the connection between the Arcane Order and the Seals.
