The Second Age of Harmony was Thra's fourth millennium, that took place after the Age of Power.[1] It was Thra's last recorded era and saw a near genocide of the Firelings by the Fire That Stays and a resurgence of the Darkening manifesting from Skeksis relics.[2]

History[]

Fireling succession crisis[]

Thurma's ascension to the Fireling crown was impeded by the pretender Nita.[3] The two sought out the Fire That Stays, hoping that his training would give them the skills necessary to rebuild their kingdom, but had to turn on him when he revealed his intention to destroy Mithra. After his defeat, the Ember Queens put aside their differences and ruled jointly, with Fiola filling the third seat of Ember Queen to complete the trinity.[4]

Siege of the Castle[]

A mass of Gelfling prisoners of the crime lord Trunk were released by the resurrected Kensho, but headed to the Castle in order to take the Crystal, as they had been infected by the Darkening present in Skeksis artifacts previously used to torture them. Kensho intervened before they could be harmed by the Castle guards and healed them all. He subsequently purged the Castle of all Skeksis relics.
