The LostHero universe is a dark place.
Once ruled by a mighty and righteous race of the Hilgardi, it became corrupted upon their decline. The Hilgardi, wise enough to predict their fall, had found the only race compatible with their technology – theT’grank. T’grank were a primitive and superstitious race, but possessed a natural intuitive skill in using Hilgardi technology. But they weren’t able to truly understand it. The Hilgardi passed the technology onto the T’grank with the hope that they will gradually evolve into a better race.
