To bring us back, here’s some lore! It’ll get into the origin of all the sentient beings in Blessings, pretty much the core part of accepted Creation Story on the world. This whole tale tends to be broken into chunks, different peoples and cultures emphasizing different parts. While some would know more about parts than others (Obviously the Celestials know more about their history than Mers) what’s being told in this re-intro chapter is sorta the minimum universal knowledge.

The narrator will be revealed later.

The “Life springing forward” is like, plants, animals, fish, bacteria, etecetc. Nothing sentient, but alive is alive!
