Caption: Following the death of Alexander the Great, the high priest of Zeus consulted with the Gods concerning the uncertain future of the Greeks.
Caption: The prophecy that was to come would shape the world as we know it.
Ambrose {prophet}: I see an Agora of great importance. There, alliances will be forged! There, promises will be broken! The flame will run high! The Titans will run rampant! It will be our greatest freedom and our greatest jailer!
Caption: "When will this happen?" cried the assembly. "When will we face this great trial?"
Caption: "Two thousand, two hundred and eighty-one years!" cried The Prophet.
Caption: "That's... unusually specific..." replied the assembly.
Caption: And so, they made ready. They forged an ancient and secret society, passing down the warning:
Caption: in progenies et progenies
Caption: One Day, there would come a time when they would be needed. And they would be ready.
