Illuminai Past

16.6.4 Illuminai Past

The Illuminai rose and fell during the Second Mortal Epoch, during which time the remnants of the Indorani and other servants of Darkness served as their main opponents. At the height of their power, they held sole dominion, in both the religious and secular senses, across the city of Shallam. Under their rule, the first monks emerged, forerunners of the Sentaari and the Grand Aetolian Library. Some few hundred years before the Grand Artifice, the Illuminai fell to an Indorani invasion, and in the wake of the city's reclamation, their ways were forgotten in favor of the more parochial religious practices common in the southeast.
