24,997 BC

At the dawn of their period of usefulness, the Eidelons developed need of a guard. A race no one had quarrel with. A force to ensure harmony prevailed once negotiations had finished. They took great care to choose a species no one had met before and found a primitive, barely clothed species, far removed on the galaxy’s outer spiral. Having brought some of them back, their evolution was accelerated with generous alterations, until they became the Eidelon’s trusted acolytes the Peacekeepers. It is theorized that the Sebacean’s forebears were in fact Humans.
