Legends forbidden by the Order of Balance tell of an ancient device which was responsible for both great imbalance and salvation referred to only as "The Bridge". Through The Bridge came a feast of knowledge, but the Seekers could not contain the power of The Bridge and a great flood came forth, consuming the land and destroying all seeker lines until only one remained. Deucalia Quad hid in a chest for many generations until the flood had passed. In the void she rebuilt, and from the her fabricator the Seeker lines were restored.
