The Universe is an old and vast place whose history spans billions of years and whose breadth comes in a form so large that no measurement without scientific notation would begin to be adequate. It contains many secrets in both itself and the dimensions that orbit around it, some are replicated in it's fellow universes with their own orbiting dimensions, others are wholly unique to itself. This is the tale of such a secret.

In the beginning, twelve stones were born, aftershocks of creation much like cosmic strings or certain cosmic entities. Seven represented a certain family of emotions or other largely thought based concepts, four represented more base and fundamental concepts. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet for the first family. Black, Brown, Grey, Purple, and White for the second. They corresponded to Rage and Hatred for Red, Avarice and Envy for Orange, Terror and Pride for Yellow, Determination and Bravery for Green, Hope and Happiness for blue, Kindness and Platonic love for Indigo, Romance and Lust for Violet. For the second family Black was Destruction, Brown was Corruption, Grey was Balance, Purple was Purification, White was Creation.

Initially united, each set finding it's place on the Glove of infinity and the Gauntlet of eternity, the twelve stones were used by a being of great power called Zaravaxi who shaped the cosmos to it's whim, controlling virtually all aspects of reality according to their increasingly delusional desires. Deemed a threat to the stability of all realities, this being was destroyed by the scions of the Primordials and the stones were scattered, each given to the beings deemed most fitting of the power of their stones, each one an Avatar of what they represented. Though still horribly powerful, compared to Zaravaxi they were mere fractions of the whole.

From these Avatars would come Guardians, and then Lanterns, who would help spread their ideals throughout reality. Ranging from the light wars between the corps (or sects as others call them) and interventions in conflicts ranging from the universe shaking war in heaven between the Elder races to petty conflicts between interplanetary warlords to the Birthstar war against the Hierarchy, the power of the light would be felt throughout the ages.

The Sects of Eternity

The sects of Eternity number five. Compared to their infinite counterparts they are rarer if perhaps more individually potent. Concerning themselves with what they believe is more important than mere "emotional nonsense" they are often aloof, caught up in their "big thinking" and thus prone to forgetting about the "little guy" while they dream up universe sweeping plans. To say that the sects of Eternity do not get along with the sects of Infinity all the time would be an oversimplification, but not wholly inaccurate. It is also worth noting that the Sects of Eternity are also substantially older than their Infinity counterparts, who have taken substantially longer to attain their modern forms.

The Icon of Destruction

No Caption Provided

The sect of Death and Destruction is the sect that's never invited to parties, almost never wanted around by any rational actors, and attracts destructive nihilists, omnicidal maniacs and the undead to it's cause like moths to a flame. Whereas the Red corps is all fire and fury, the Black sect is a calmer, more insidious form of destruction, planned rather than spontaneous. The difference can be summed up as such: The Red corps would attract those who destroy because they are angry and hateful, the Black corps brings in those who destroy for destruction's own sake. It is for this reason that they have made an alliance with the Hierarchy; reveling in the Alien nations' dream of mass genocide.

Homeworld: Nox

No Caption Provided

A rogue world with no sun drifting in the space between galaxies so far from the Earth that it's light will never reach the Earth before the stars themselves die, Nox is a lightless, frigid land only kept ever so barely habitable by volcanic processes ignited by it's moon system. Nox is bleak, crawling with the undead, the nihilistic, and the omnicidal. Here the guardians of the black sect relay the missions of it's avatar in their quest to bring the universe to it's pure state; nothing.

Guardians: The Noxus are dreadfully powerful masters of necromancy made out of living darkness. Serving the power of the Black faithfully, the Noxus act as the Black Stone's guardians and the parliamentarians of the Black Sect. To challenge one of them is an experience not many survive.

Secret primal aspect: Doom. Those of the Black Sect who unlock the hidden power of their rings gain access to the power of doom, which is to say mastery over the concepts of death and fate and lordship over cold and necromantic energies. Such enlightened black lanterns are beings of terrible destructive power; bringing death at will and twisting the paths of fate to their own wills.

The corps of Corruption isn't really up for destroying the universe. It would actually very much rather rule it and drag it down to it's own standards, sullying what was once pure and twisting it into vile perversions of what they once were. It is here that the Brown Sect finds much in common with the Yellow sect in that they both would very much like to rule creation, and they are indeed frequent allies of one another. The Brown corps delights in turning the self righteous into beings as corrupt as themselves, and it solicits those who would compromise on their principles for their personal gain at the expense of others. They're surprisingly great financiers though (when they aren't embezzling everything).

No Caption Provided

Homeworld: Corpus.

A planet choking in it's own corruption and pollution, Corpus is a world where idealism goes to die. Were it not for the Brown Sect, it would be almost certain that the planet would have collapsed under it's own vileness some time ago. Bribes are the norm, favors are granted for personal fondness over any sort of merit, depravity goes unchecked and unpunished so long as one has the right connections, and seemingly all laws of decent orderly society are subverted towards corruption. And it's a corruption that wants to spread.

Morguls: Fat, disgusting blobs of an alien species, Morguls are nevertheless possessed of great cosmic power relating to their own corruption and bureaucratic excess. Despite their comical seeming nature, Morguls scheme plots for the decay of all societies at the behest of their avatar and entrust their lanterns to carry out their "light" to the furthest reach of the cosmos. Some say they would succeed too, were it not for their own corruption's self defeating nature. Though others point out that even if they did get their act completely together, there are still many who would oppose them.

Secret primal aspect: Void. The power of nothingness, of obscurity and hidden natures is for those who have truly mastered their brown light to command. Useful for hiding one's own corrupt nature and insidious plots from the light of others. Cold and Darkness are also for those who have mastered the Void within themselves to call to their service.

The grey corps is the sect devoted to balance and neutrality. Arbitrators and mediators by their very nature, the Grey Corps is on fairly good terms with the Green corps, the middlemost of the Infinity sects. Other sects it accords respect as the situation demands. Impassive and often apathetic seeming, the Greys are generally impartial diplomats, but if force is required, they will restore the balance and calm everyone they need to calm harshly. "Calm down or we will make you calm." Is a faux-slogan used by enemies of the Greys who believe that their policies are too harsh and unforgiving.

Homeworld: The orb of our great and serene home of eternity (Isara-Evano to the sect)

No Caption Provided

Once the capital of the Masari Ecumene, the Grey Sect has reclaimed the world following it's scouring of all life one hundred thousand years ago in the end of the Masari-Thoughtsin war. Immediately hunkering down on it's "imbalancing" technology, the claim of the Grey Lantern corps to a world that is important to the religion of the Imperium of Man and many other species that enjoyed a close relationship with the prior holders of the Celestial mandate has been something of a sore point for the past hundred thousand years. But the Grey Sect is adamant, the younger civilizations are not ready for Masari technology of this magnitude, last will of the Ecumene be damned.

Pysranak: The Pyrsanak are a species of nanomechanical intelligences rather like, but distinct from the Electrical Protectorate that is hellbent on devouring the cosmos. Emotionless and impassionate, the Pyrsranak convene to decide where their corpsmen and women are needed to ensure that the balance of power and the cosmos remains intact. Though possessed of tremendous power, they only act when they believe it is necessary to preserve the balance of reality as a whole.

Secret primal aspect: Mind. Those Grey Corpsmen who truly unlock the power of their rings are given access to the concept of Mind, of Thought and Sapience, and the power to bend that thought and sapience, to create it, or destroy it as they would. Not to the extent of a primalborn or a primaling, but certainly enough to boost their own powers considerably while the powers of frost and lightning also become theirs to command.

No Caption Provided

Purple Sect: Opposing the Brown Lanterns are the Purple Sect. Purifiers who are often criticized as overzealous, the Purple sect battles corruption wherever it sees it. Immaculate and proud of their own dignified bearing, the Purple Sect is like a laser that burns away the heart of the cancers they see infesting reality, purifying the evil, righting wrongs, bringing people away from evil and towards good. Tireless and diligent, the Purple Sect sometimes forgets it's own compassion, leading it to seek out the Indigo sect to act as constraints whenever they get too zealous in their pursuit of purity.

No Caption Provided

Homeworld: Kurazii

A splendidly beautiful world and capital of the wondrous nation of the Jiracho, one of the few remaining Elder Species who can trace their beginning to the earliest ages of the cosmos. Blending together nature and civilization in perfect harmony in a flawlessly maintained ecosystem, Kurazii is an amazing sight to behold. But woe betide those who would seek to bring evil to it's doorstep, for the Purple sect will tolerate no such corruption at the very heart of their operations. Here, plans to spread goodness and purity throughout the universe are drawn, and lanterns consult augurs for visions of the future to better coordinate their efforts.

Guardians: Jiracho.

Actually predating the Universe itself, the Jiracho travel from reality to reality, working behind the scenes to battle evil and encourage the spread of goodness. With a mighty mastery of science, cosmic power, magic, psionics, truenaming, even the power the warp and boasting a connection to the primordials, the Jiracho easily rank with the other guardians as beings of great power. It was they who devised a cure for the thoughtsin whereas the Masari could do nothing despite millenia of trying, and it is they who not only have the honor of shepherding a whole sect, but also raising two of the current primalborn in their esoteric ways.

Secret primal aspect: Light. The concept of knowledge and fortune is reserved for those Purple Lanterns who truly understand their connection to the ring, giving them access to the ability to control their own luck and gain access to truly great knowledge. Such lanterns inevitably become very wise and enlightened beings as they gain a perspective over reality few others could even imagine. And of course, with understanding of the purple light also comes mastery over water and radiance.

The White sect is the opposing corps to the Black. A force for Life and Creation in the cosmos, the White Sect seeks to create, to rebuild, and if needed, fight to stop destruction and death. The white sect heals the sick, resurrects the dead, rebuilds that which has been destroyed, and eases suffering and tragedy. But when they fight, they are a force to behold. Few can stand against the power of their creative force when it is truly unleashed, and most would rather slowly gnaw off their limbs than stand against the White sect when it has been truly angered. While it's agents prefer the velvet glove to the iron fist, it is unwise to anger them.

No Caption Provided

Homeworld: Ai-eura-kmaros.

The Radiant world is the center of the white lantern sect. A world that shines it's own, healing positive energy that is baleful to the undead but nurturing to the living, Ai-eura-kmaros is also the heart of Lumos civilization in our universe. Here White Lanterns are trained by their superiors while the Lumos discuss what is to be done to advance the cause of the white sect in a universe clouded by destruction. Here many come to seek refuge and healing from the best in the universe, where even total atomization can be cured by the skilled healers of this fantastic place. With cities and nature preserves made in harmony and designed for maximum beauty, Ai-eura-kmaros is a place where one can be at ease and enjoy themselves.

Guardians: The Lumos.

Like the Jiracho, the Lumos are not native to our universe, instead being travelers across the multiverse seeking to right wrongs. Though whereas the Jiracho are zealous purgers and paladins with regards to darkness, the Lumos prefer the arts of restoration, undoing the damage done by those who welcome evil into their hearts. Being the matches of the Jiracho in most every category, the Lumos hold senates to determine the policy of their Corps at regular intervals, though they will bend their schedules in times of emergency and crisis.

Secret Primal Aspect: Life.

Those lanterns who truly understand the meaning of their power unlock the primordial aspect of life and change. Opposing the certainty of Doom is the unbridled potential for change that is life. The power to create new life, the power to restore ended life, the power to snuff out unlife, the power to heal, the power to break the bonds of fate, the ability to enact change in even the most rigid of systems. That is the promise that life offers as well as control over flame and positive energy.

Sects of Infinity

Much younger, the Sects of Infinity did not mold themselves into standing organizations until substantially after the Sects of Eternity did. Whereas the Sects of Eternity are based on more fundamental concepts, the Sects of Infinity instead draw from the power of various emotions. Though like their Eternal brethern, the Infinites also can draw from secret wells of primal power should the bearer fully unlock the secrets of their associated energies. Compared to their older counterparts, the Infinity sects are more numerous, less individually powerful, and more intensely involved in the affairs of the universe, especially following the end of the Masari Ecumene.

Anything below this point is subject to change:

Though much of their story has already been told by one Lantern of the Green Sect, there yet remains more to tell.

No Caption Provided

The Red sect is the sect of anger and hatred. The scarlet stone that empowers it spreads it's malignant disgust for all of existence out in all directions. Understandably, the Red Sect has a problem with Khornate worship among it's ranks. Embroiled by it's seething hatred for everything around it, it is only barely kept together as a coherent force by the personal power of it's guardians and avatar. Seeking to spread the madness of their anger while violently murdering those they see as committing offense, the Red Sect is undoutably a force for destruction, though even it balks at the Black Sect's nihilistic desire to bring about the end of all things. It is akin to a forest fire, causing great calamity, but always leaving enough for something new to replace the old.

No Caption Provided

Homeworld: Vulcolara

Each sect has it's own "empire" of worlds it personally manages and uses as one hundred percent reliable recruiting centers, in addition to the rings seeking out the worthy. Vulcolara is the heart of the "empire" of the Red Sect. The air quotes are because the Red Lantern corps is barely organized on a military level, nevermind a political one. A band of the angry and hateful lead by whoever in the vicinity is the strongest and most lucid, this barbaric system has seen the homeworld of the Red Sect laid to waste in internecine conflict, and though it was put back together, it remains a molten charnelhouse, which the lanterns decided fit them perfectly. The frequent daemonic incursions on the planet only help to make sure that the strongest survive.

Guardians: Armahedrals: Insectoid beings consumed by their hatred, the Armahedrals beat some semblance of sense and order into their angry underlings as they ravage the universe like barbarians. Though individually brilliant and powerful thanks to their innate connection to many esoteric forces, the Armahedrals themselves must battle with the rage inherent in themselves so that the sect can look to some form of leadership beyond the ad hoc chain of command and the Avatar themself. Some even say that the Armahedrals throw themselves into the cause of their sect to avoid falling into the corruption that Khorne offers them.

Secret primal aspect: Rage (Duh)

The Primal aspect of rage grants one control over negative emotion, the power to induce it, to draw power from it, to manipulate it, and to snuff out positive emotions. Understandably, a legion of those whose eyes are drawn over with the red mist find it hard to unlock the intense self understanding needed to access the primal power within their own rings, which is quite fortunate as those who have gained such inner understanding are horrifically dangerous to other Infinity sect members due to their ability to play with emotions. Rage can conjure forth fire and lightning both to strike down opponents.

No Caption Provided

Greed and Jealousy are the bywords of the Orange Infinity sect. Or they would be were there more than one member. Formed out of yellow and red sect members trying to harness the orange gem, the greed inherent to it meant that trying to form a corps out of it was a foolhardy gesture. Only one figure survived the creation of the Orange sect, Valik, as he had slaughtered all those who were to be the guardians and lanterns of his sect and claimed avatarship for himself, greedily hoarding the Orange stone and thus focusing all the power of his sect unto himself. To act in multiple places, Valik uses constructs in the shape of guardians and lanterns whenever he feels the need to, or lesser copies of himself to trick an enemy into thinking they've beaten him when in truth they could never have threatened his true self. But should Valik feel the need to personally intervene there is precious little in the universe that can stop him.

No Caption Provided

Homeworld: Jilusuuvius.

Valik's homeworld, Jilusuuvius is the heart of his "empire", as the icon of greed and envy's packrat mentality also extends to massive swathes of space that live in fear of their Tyrant, who seems omniscient and omnipotent. He hoards his most precious relics right here on his homeworld, a vast mountain of treasure stretching across the planet, quite possibly making Vilak the richest being in the universe, though he'll be damned if he ever spends any of it. To so much as touch upon his riches is to invite his wrath and to part with it is to invite the damnation of entire galaxies at a time as he will not only slaughter the thief but track them down to their home, conquer it, then steal all their riches for himself. And due to Vilak's envious nature, he wants to keep on growing his empire more and more and rest on an ever growing ill gotten pile of riches.

That Vilak is a Dragon surprises exactly no one. Even the most virtuous of dragons are known for their avarice and desire to acquire more wealth. Vilak is certainly no creature of virtue. He is a being possessed of virtually limitless greed and a burning envy for the wealth of all others. Though his natural abilities as a dragon would be enough to invoke fear and terror, his status as the sole inheritor of the Orange Stone's power makes him one of the Universe's most potent beings. One would call him godlike if he didn't find the term an insult to what he believes is his incomparable majesty. Through his constructs he can exert his will across countless "bodies" and deceive opponents into thinking they have beaten him through false constructs. He is after all greedy, but very, very intelligent.

Guardians: None, Vilak will not share the Orange power with anyone.

Secret Primal Aspect: Time.

The power of time itself is Vilak's to command. Time to plot his new acquisition of wealth and power endlessly, time to defeat his foes, power over time that makes his wrath next to unavoidable and uncounterable. Power that lets him acquire more additions to his collection across all of history and all of the future. Power that lets him further replicate himself and his ill gotten treasures. Time manipulation is an ever so useful power for one whose cup of greed and jealousy can never be filled. Even more so when it brings control over fire and frost.

The Yellow Sect considers fear and domination to be the only ways to bring about proper order into the cosmos. Founded upon the fear of others and the pride of the wielder, the Yellow Sect recruits from those who wish to rule over others with an iron fist, those who would put their craving for order and control over naivetes such as freedom and equality. Though they have good intentions in theory, the desire for stability and logic in all things, the way they go about it is usually seen as abhorrent. "Kill ten million and it's a statistic." Is how they approach death. Killing a hundred million people out of a population of ten billion is seen as merely sacrificing one percent of the population for the greater good. Eliminating troublesome minorities is seen as the few making way for the many. It is these philosophies that guide the Yellow sect, and it is this that makes them determined to conquer the universe so that they can make it a safer place, all while enacting their own "justice"

No Caption Provided

Homeworld: Oronovna.

The Heart of the Yellow Sect's fascist empire, Oronovna is the model fascist state, with police ensuring the safety of their citizens. At all times. Here there is no question whether Freedom matters more than Security. Freedom is a danger to security, Freedom leads to anarchy, to decadence, to immorality. Thus it must be purged. Equality is a fool's errand, there will always be those who are just superior, therefore it is a waste of time to help those who are down on their luck. Better to kill them quickly so they do not burden society with their weakness. Fear trickles down to every layer of society while national pride is evoked to rally people behind the Fascist state, all while troublesome ethnicities are quickly put down whenever they crop up. Unsurprisingly, the Yellow Sect gets along excellently with the Continuation Reich and the rest of the Axis Uber Alles. The Avatar of the Yellow Sect has personally presented awards to Nazi Fuehrer Totenkopf for running "A model society" and that "Nazism is a symbol for all humanity to aspire to."

Guardians: Ulithihoons.

A species of beings from the madness of the Far Realm who left that place in favor of building a place of real, permanent order, the Ulithihoons are fiendishly intellectual and extremely sophisticated and psionic aliens who feed not only off of the fear of other beings, but also on their brains. They were natural candidates for Guardianship of the Yellow sect, setting forth a policy that those from Earth would recognize as Fascism as the only proper way to conduct a state with which to conquer a universe, serving as the Avatar of the Yellow Sect's delegates and advisors.

Secret Primal power: Blood.

The power of bonds and unity, the most orderly of the aspects, is a natural fit for the followers of the Yellow stone. The power to create, manipulate, and dissolve bonds and unity allows for a state stronger than Adamantium to exist. Those who truly master the ring have such power, and are thus highly valued in the yellow sect's plans to impose perfect order in the universe. That they can control the life's blood of others (man or machine) is but a bonus.

The Green sect is the home of the determined and the brave. The most neutral out of the seven infinity sects, the Green Sect tries to avoid the "over-emotional prima donna bullsh!t" in the words of one Earth based Lantern, of the other sects. While they aren't quite as devoted to the Balance as their grey counterparts, the Greens seek to maintain a just, fair order. Ethical laws for the cosmos to abide by. A discussion forum for people to talk out their differences before resorting to hitting each other (though this is often ignored), a police force to deal with international crime and an army to respond to crises when needed. Level headed but resolute, the Green sect is perhaps the most iconic out of them all.

No Caption Provided

Homeworld: Windarugo

The Green Sect's homeworld is a living, fully sapient planet that is also a member of their corps, perhaps one of the most powerful actually. This allows their home base to contribute to it's own defense and keeps their capital constantly moving to avoid enemy attack or retaliation. Important considering the long list of enemies that the Green sect has made. Ecologically, Windarugo is a rather standard Earth-like planet all things considered and it's surface hosts clean cities and well kept nature reserves where select rookies can train at the very core of Green Sect space.

Guardians: Nuwerk

Resembling nothing so much as short little blue men and women, Nuwerks function as the guardians of the Green Sect, setting policy, enacting bold new strategies, working to counter the moves of the other sects, managing the nation. Trying to always maintain a level head for planning, the Nuwerks can at times get more concerned about the law and the sanctity of their military cohesion than they will about the people, but they do their best to be fair in all things. Even if it isn't always enough.

Secret primal aspect: Space

The power of space is manifold, the power to be anywhere you want, to be in multiple places at once, to adjust the size of something, to alter how gravity affects it, change the distance between objects. The limitations of what one can do with the power over space are largely that set by one's imagination and the reach of their power. Though rare as this power requires a thorough comprehension of one's ring, it is something to be reckoned with for sure. Coupled with control over the force of gravity and the element of earth and you have yourself a very sweet deal.

The hope and joy of the cosmos, the Blue Sect is the light in the darkest of nights and the shield for the weak and the defenseless. The answer to every cry for help, the protector of those who cannot protect themselves, and the bringers of the light into the endless blackness, the Blue Sect is perhaps the most conventionally heroic of the Sects. Their sect gives to the needy, builds infrastructure where it is required, sets a good example for the next generations to follow. It is for this reason that the Blue Sect has joined many other Lantern sects in battling the Hierarchy's mad dream of universal humanoid genocide, and perhaps it fights harder than any other sect to bring about a world where people can hope and feel happy without fear.

No Caption Provided

Homeworld: Aarata

A Utopian capital world for a Utopian Nation, Aarata is a clean and joyful world where entertainment is to be found just about anywhere and where the downtrodden are uplifted. Here, people look forward to a better still tomorrow. Relentless Optimism is the emotion to live by and there are very few reasons not to be Optimistic. The Hierarchy is losing the war after all. Other worlds and stations run by the Blue sect tend to follow the same pattern, always there to remind people that not only are things awesome, but that they'll be even more awesome soon.

Guardians: Burotil: Ideals of hope for the rest of the universe to live by (even if they are very strange), the Burotils are artificial life forms created by the Masari to tend to their greatest of works, but upon establishing their connection to the Blue stone, became so much more. Now that the Masari are gone, the Burotils have decided that it is time to help the Universe inherit the legacy of that now extinct hegemon and make the cosmos a better place for one and all. Cheerfully optimistic and full of mirth, Burotils always look forward to what the future holds.

Secret Primal Aspect: Hope

The power of positive emotion is for those Blue lanterns who truly grasp what their ring can offer to command. The concept of positivity, of hope, of drawing strength from it, of warding away that which is negative, of instilling it and manipulating it in others or taking it away, that is the power of Hope. Make no mistake, it certainly has earned it's place of power among the other aspects, in addition, the powers of sound and the light are available to the hopeful to use.

The Indigo sect is the sect for the merciful, the kindhearted, the sweet, the loving and nurturing, and all those who give a gentle hand to the cosmos. Agents of mercy and kindness, the Indigo sect works closely with the White and Blue sects to spread forth their message of salvation to the universe. But if the forces of compassion cannot meet a problem gently, then they will fight as hard as they must to make the world safe for kindness. Just because they value kindness does not make mistaking them for pacifists an intelligent decision.

No Caption Provided

Homeworld: Gar'ji'sin

Actually a moon of a Gas Giant, Gar'ji'sin is the heart of an empire where the golden rule is the greatest single rule. After helping cleanse the sins of a solar empire, the Indigo sect was allowed to settle on their capital world and mingle with them, teaching them the ways of kindness until they fully exemplified them. What had once been the bastion of brutal militarism had now become the shining beacon of kindness in an often all too cruel cosmos. Though mostly dominated by vast oceans, Gar'ji'sin's indigo coloured continents are breathtaking .

Guardians: The Scholarii

Once the rulers of a vast and brutal militaristic empire with institutionalized slavery, the Indigo Sect managed to convert the Scholarii towards gentler ends. Now turning their war effort against the Hierarchy in an effort to save the Universe from Grand Overseer Mu's mad dreams of genocide, these Aliens have found more power in compassion than they ever did in hate, and pray dearly that it is not too late to save the Hierarchy from it's own hatred for all things touched by the Masari. In other affairs the Scholarii are some of the gentlest hands, and are well regarded for their forgiving natures and the policies of mercy and restoration that they set for their sect.

Secret Primal Aspect: Breath

Opposed to the power of Blood is Breath. Breath is Freedom, it is Liberty. It is these very fundamental concepts that allow things to happen, that allow us to enjoy life as it is rather than mull about trapped in bonds and unity. It is the spirit of the individual, and to control it gives one the ability to play with the freedom of oneself and of others. This mastery can extend far beyond the obvious. Freedom from damage afflicting you, freedom from restraints holding you, freedom from the laws of reality binding you. Freedom, that is the power of the Indigo. Oh and it can also do the windy thing and control lightning which is pretty sick, no?

The Violet sect works off of the power of Romance and Desire. Not the selfish, greedy avarice of the Orange Stone, but of a purer sort of desire, a more sensual kind than that felt for gold coins. The Violet sect, like the Red sect, also faces the trepidations of Chaos as Slaanesh always seeks to turn the Violet sects' desires into something altogether more perverse by adding the element of excess into the mix. So Violet lanterns must always keep their guard against the seduction of the Dark Princess of Pleasure. Raw and emotional just as the Red sects are, the Violet sect is impulsive, free-flowing, it follows the heart rather than the head, after all, is love not blind?

No Caption Provided

Homeworld : Eronus

The home of the most famous lovers retreats in a nation that is chock full of dazzling lovers' retreats, Eronus is a place for love and pleasure. It is not a place for those who have repressed their desires, but a place to release them unto the world and bring one's inner beauty to the outside. Some would call it decadent, scandalous even, and they certainly are rather looser than many would like, but others would call it pure. And the Lanterns themselves are certainly not above it even as they work to maintain the life of their nation against the tide of the rapidly changing universe.

Guardians: Enochai

Out of all the Masari touched species, it would be rather hard to find one that more closely resembles the now extinct Forerunners than the Enochai. Though a fair deal shorter, they have the pale skin and hair and deliriously beautiful features the Masari were known for. Essentially a highly idealized human with perhaps some rather unusual colourations. Though it is joked that sometimes it's hard to tell the men from the women given their heavy lean towards thin, soft features, the Enochai are very much capable of laying skyfather level smackdown when they are pressed, and act as the Guardians of the Violet sect for a very good reason, as they are capable of mastering the lust and love within themselves and channeling it whereas many lanterns still struggle immensely with it.

Secret Primal Aspect: Heart.

The power of the innerself, the soul, the core, the heart of the matter. Anything that is centermost to something is under the purview of heart. And Heart is very much an awesome power. This can go from the fairly obvious such as manipulating the spirit or the literal heart, to the not so obvious to destroying the core essence lynchpinning something to reality or altering the core fundamentals of their character. Opposed to the more logical, rational force of mind, Heart also grants one control over thunder and lightning.

Joining

Pretty much anyone is welcome to join with either an existing character or with a new alt. There's no real rules on it, just remember the basics of lantern power and to ask me if you have any questions. Lantern specific locations will be coming up soon and until then you're encouraged to explore the space locations located on Shadowswordmaster's wiki.

@vrakmul: You never cease to amaze me. This is the most unique take on the Lanterns I've ever seen.

I give you full permission to write the Sects of Infinity. Approvals all over the place.

Wishes of luck are meaningless. Offers of joining would be appreciated far more. :P

Kickass. Think I got an idea for a purple sect member.

Question, though. Do all lanterns have construct powers by default? And is there a list of specific powers each ring grants? Just wanna know if I do decide to make one.

Atrocity is a Ghost Rider character naturally. He absorbs souls into his essence and shaiza. I believe it would nice to have him get a Black Ring or whatever lol

@_zombie_: All of them do have construct abilities (how good they are with them varies, it's perfectly possible to not do much more with them than blast people with pew pew lasers and fly around), but there are specific powers inherent to each one.

The canonical special powers of the canon corps are already known (though rather than a faux-zombie virus and a redonkulous healing factor the black ring instead grants necromancy), but as for purple, it allows one to purge corruption, restoring something to it's original form, pushing out harmful elements from a body (note, not necessarily a the body of a creature, more metaphorical versions of the term also work, but it's the easiest to grasp), clean dirty things (and cleanse disease), and interestingly; forcing shapeshifters to revert back to their original form.

Brown obviously goes in reverse, adding rather than removing corruption.
