UrSkeks banished

The homeworld of the urSkeks had a Crystal of its own, one of many Great crystals scattered throughout the Uni-Verse. Like the Crystal of Truth, it was large and translucent, but sang and glowed much less powerfully, as it was not nourished by the light of the Three Brothers.[1]

Sometime during Thra's late Age of Innocence, a group of 18 dissident urSkeks developed heretical beliefs concerning the duality of the soul, and sought to use their Crystal to purify themselves of their darker impulses.[1] For this blasphemy, the dissidents were exiled from their homeworld and sent to Thra, where they would continue their experimentation, this time upon the Crystal of Truth, thus culminating in the Great Division.
