That small, sparkling mechanism resting upon your palm, is one of the last remnants of our existance; the last link between our peoples, between our shared history.
Do you know the tale of its origin?
The spark of ingenuity.
The spark that creates, divides and engulfs the worlds.
The spark of humanity.
We-Who-Grew-With-You and We-Who-Now-Watch, have borne witness to your cycles: common cause, division, common cause once more.

But when you are selling a comic whose origins you aren't sure of, with a story that gets inside your head...
...even the most common-place artefact can become something to be fear.
