Origin of the Star People (Jyanai Origins)

The ancient predecessors of the Jyanai were known as the Star People by the earlier races. These original Watchers left their home world and began traveling through deep space and the many planes of the multiverse. In their travels they came across locked planar gates, a Great Seal, beyond which they could not probe with their greatest magics. Fascinated that they could not unlock or penetrate this massive gate they vowed to search for answers. For many more eons they traveled onward promising to return to that place to unlock the intrigue of this forbidden Eden beyond their reach, believing there may be greater secrets hidden away in this place.

The great race of the Jyanai came to a point of cultural, spiritual and magical evolution through their travels and it was decided they should return to the locked gate where they would focus their entire civilization to the task of opening this secret place. Through great toil and study they finally forced open the Great Seal that locked this hidden plane from prying eyes.

Beyond they discovered an untouched world that housed a unique energy within – a Dreaming Mother that sleeps after creating the planes. Recognizing this advanced races arrival she reached out to them from her slumber, learned of the races development beyond her world, revealed to this benevolent and enlightened race the secrets of universe and ultimate creation. The Dreaming Mother charged them with the care of the lesser races she glimpsed from their historical memory, employed them to care for the wayward creations that could seek refuge here and protect this sanctuary of life.

Thus the Star People became the Watchers of Terraden.
