The time stream is in a constant state of disrepair. Timelines diverge and collapse. History is altered, creating tidal waves of change. And that’s on a good day. But thankfully, for eons, the main thruway - the key timeline - has been kept safe by a group of diligent and dedicated “Chronal Keepers.” These men and women keep watch over events happening all over time, across alternate paths and universes. Empowered by their unique “keys” - hourglass-shaped talismans that allows the wearer to create a time/space distortion - a protective quantum field. Within the field they can manipulate matter and energy as they see fit. Whatever is possible, they can achieve. Imbuing them with the ability to manipulate reality. These brave people tap into their talismans and are shunted to wherever and whenever they’re needed most, with little idea what they might face. Working in secret so as not to disrupt the timelines themselves, these anonymous Chronal Keepers were silent heroes across time and space.
That was then, though.
In the wake of what many call “The Great Schism,” (though the remaining Keepers themselves refer to it as “The Giant Eff-Up”) the Keepers are all but gone, leaving the time stream vulnerable to an assault that could destroy the universe as we know it. But one keeper survives - an aging human man named Kent Gordin, stranded in the 21st century. As the life he’s known falls apart, Gordin holds on to one sliver of hope - a child, an alien from a distant world, shunted to Earth to escape a militaristic, fascist regime that threatened to destroy her family.
