Long ago when the world was young, Atlantis was a city like no other. A small island nation, ruled by a beloved queen and king, we were once known throughout the world for our incredible technology, forged from a rare mineral found in the heart of the island. But where there is happiness & prosperity, ruin always lies just on the horizon. "Atlantium” When processed properly it could be transformed into a serum giving its user the ability to grow gills to live beneath the water. A power hungry Military Commander saw an opportunity for himself. Waiting for the last of the Atlantium to be turned into a serum, he quickly overthrew the beloved king and queen. He hoarded the drug for whom he saw fit to survive after the descent taking control of the city.
The Queen and King, knowing they would soon be killed left but one hope for their people. Locking their only daughter in a small submersible, they cast her off into the ocean towards Greece, her only memory of them an amulet placed around her neck.
As the last of the Atlantium was mined the city separated with a mighty crash! It broke away from the land, and submerged into the depths of the sea. The military commander, now with his plan executed, had gained his much wanted power, and began to cause chaos. The people quickly learned that by consuming the serum to survive they could now breathe beneath the sea, but had lost the ability to breathe on land. So thus the survivors were forced to remain in Atlantis in servitude to the military, but the people held high hope, that one day a descendent would come back with the amulet and free them from their watery cage, and help them ascend back to the surface.
