The Reef Wars
The Kell of Wolves, Virixas, had heard the call and had gathered a great fleet to join the other Fallen houses on Earth. It was a matter of survival. The salvation of the Kell’s people depended on their ability to shatter the walls of the City and secure a victory at Twilight Gap^1.
Virixas, the Wolf Kell, amassed his army on Ceres, a large and perfectly round asteroid settled within the Asteroid Belt. Ceres was large enough to support the shipyards and warrens but had a greater meaning and spiritual connection to the Fallen. It’s perfect spherical shape was considered powerful and lucky like their Servitor gods^1.
The emptiness of space was filled with the chatter of Fallen, transmissions broadcasted on all Fallen frequencies. This had never previously occurred and was too rare to be a coincidence. Despite not being able to decrypt the transmissions, The Queen’s brother, Master of Crows, Prince Uldren, recognized the signal, the Fallen Houses were merging, they were preparing an assault to end the Earth city^2.
