According to the oldest legends of the satriv, when the species was still young, foolish and inexperienced, a strange, indescribable being descended from the sky to look at the species that warred with itself so much. Upon seeing that just how selfish the satriv were with the reasons for their wars, the being took pity to them, and intervened. It stopped the violent conflicts that sparked amongst the membere of the species under mere seconds, then called the wisest of the wise men around itself to tell them why it had come. It told the wise men of the era that its name was simply Teacher and the proper way to refer to itself was with the outmost respect that They demanded. The satriv wise men were then informed that They would teach them the proper way to live their lives, and introduced them to the power of knowledge, or information, and in turn, the wise men would pass the teachings on to the other satriv. For a while, satriv civilization prospered as They introduced new concept to the people, but as time went on, the satriv became more and more arrogant. This eventually culminated in one of the students of the Teacher asking if she will become as powerful as Them, to which the Teacher simply smiled... and then the next day, They have disappeared, leaving behind untold chaos. Much of the satriv history was forgotten or erased from the records of the species, even though they have tried to keep track of it, and thus, little is known of what happened after the Teacher has left. One thing was for sure, though: from the ruins that the Teacher has left behind, emerged an interstellar empire, which then met several others, only to get in conflict with them as well. Long wars have been fought between other species, but ultimately, the warring factions have discovered that they have one thing in common. It seemed as if the Teacher had visited all of them in their histories and had a simply unbelievable influence on all of them. But even though the Teacher had such an influence on this region of space, They have left behind but one monument, and that was a half-ruined temple on the hostile, almost unhabitable planet of LLN-3346, where fierce winds always assaulted the huge buildings, the corrosive atmosphere continously tested the strength of its walls, and the tough, adaptive plants have already overgrown much of the old structure. What is more, the temple was located deep inside the jungle, not to mention that most of it has already been covered in soil. Only a single, barely standing tower remained visible to the curious eyes of those who wanted to visit the last standing monument of the Teacher, and most of those were left extremely disappointed in the ruins. Allandron Lavros was not one of these people, though. As an engineer, he was extremely interested in the simply bizarre, old structure that managed to remain standing for thousands of years, or even longer despite all the odds. Sure, the rebreather and the protective clothing he wore inconvenienced him a great deal, and it also prevented him from experiencing the structure with his own hands, but at least, he could see it with his own eyes. Sure, it was a mere, almost completely plain tower in the middle of nowhere, but if one looked at it closely, they could spot the tell-tale signs of the strange, complicated patterns that were forged into the seemingly indestructible material of the temple, but have been washed away by the sands of time. If one looked closely enough, they could imagine the once-marvelous shape of the tower: a simple, curved rectangle that advanced towards the sky in a spiral pattern, and slowly increased in size as it approached the ground. This simple shape was most likely crowned by a watchtower once upon a time, but now, only vague remnants stand where the top of the tower once was. Allandron could not even begin to imagine how the temple once looked like. From the legends that depicted the Teacher, he was sure that it was a magnificent, simply awe-inspiring building that fell to merciless, cruel barbarians, or perhaps something even worse. But what could destroy the strange material of the temples, which could not be harmed even by weapons that were capable of collapsing stars? He did not know, but he shuddered at the thought, and looked away from the structure to clear his mind, which was when he noticed that he was not alone. There were three others around him, in fact, all of them coming from different species, but they were clearly looking at the structure, and suddenly, his heart was filled with hope. There really were others like him, after all! There was nothing to lose here, so he made one step towards the ancient temple, then in his loudest voice, he started speaking. "So I guess you are also people who want to know what this temple is exactly," said Allandron, his voice a bit shaky from the excitement. "Sorry if I startled you, but my name is Allandron Lavros, and I think I am just as interested in the Teacher as you are."
