Viviane of Emrise, master creator and daughter of Merlin the Great, has trained her whole life to prevent a manmade threat that will ruin humanity in a distant era. Now that she's arrived in 2094, her mere presence actually makes it worse. For as long as there have been humans, people have been able to create. The descendants of those first Illuminees want the Flocks, the insensitives, to grow and evolve as well. Free will is an essential element because without it, people cannot evolve and thereby slow down the entire evolutionary process, eventually reversing it. The Dissonaunts do not want the Flocks to learn how to use their creating potential. They refer to atomic energy, genetic manipulation and many other inventions that were eventually abused by Flocks to kill or to gain power. Their decisions lead to war, genocide, severe climate change and the depletion of the planet?s finite resources. Teon Scand, leader of the Dissonaunts aims to prevent the Flocks from destroying the world by removing their free will. When he succeeds, his actions will cause the devolution of mankind. Legend has it that the daughter of Merlin will arrive in the darkest of times to aid humanity. She has her work cut out for her.
