Thra during Age of Power

Thra during the Age of Power

The Age of Power was Thra's fourth millennium, taking place after the Age of Division. The start of the Age of Power's first century saw the beginning of a succession of crises, including a brief return of the Skeksis, and the destruction of Mithra by the Great Dim. The Age of Power was Thra's shortest era as it only took place over a span of a hundred trine, instead of a thousand.

History[]

Return of the Gelfling[]

After being entrusted with the Crystal by the urSkeks, Jen and Kira regenerated the Gelfling race and established the Gelfling Nation.[1] After some trine, the two rulers went into a long slumber, leaving the Crystal to become an object of veneration and tribute.[2]

Second Great Division[]

One hundred trine into the Age of Power, the offerings to the Crystal eventually clogged the shaft beneath it connecting Thra to Mithra, causing the Great Dim.[3] The Fireling Ember Queens sent Thurma to retrieve a shard from the Crystal in order to heal their Mother Sun. She cracked the Crystal and caused a brief return of the Skeksis and urRu.[2] After a battle in Mithra resulting in the death of her Gelfling ally Kensho, Thurma healed the Crystal upon realizing the error in her methods, thus restoring the urSkeks. The urSkeks resurrected Kensho and left Thra, taking Jen and Kira with them.[3]
