Great Dim

Firelings petrified by the Dim

The Great Dim was an ecological catastrophe that befell Mithra during the Age of Power. Caused by the accumulation of offerings to the Crystal blocking its light from nourishing Mithra's Mother Sun,[1] the Dim caused temperatures to fall and, consequently, the petrification of all living creatures below Thra's surface.[2] It resulted in the extinction of numerous Hallows,[3] as well as the deaths of all Ember Queens,[4] including Thurma's mother.[2] The Dim was averted when Thurma cleared the shaft of the Crystal of the accumulated offerings.[1]
