“This unpredictable Universe, lost in the dusts of Creation.
Is it governed by the absolute Order of Fate?
Or is it haphazardly delineated by the fickle hand of Chaos?
You can be certain of one thing in your life: There’s Order to be found in Chaos,
and Chaos that defines Order.
Throughout the ages, humans have been known to take the reins of such notions
and change their definitions at will, for their convenience.
Yet Order and Chaos are but strings to the whimsical machinations
of a puppet master called Reality.
You who are tied to the threads of destiny…
Fight Fate if you will – as long as you understand that Fate fights back.” - Introduction quote from G. I. chapter 3.3

About the Verse
Also called "The AEM Chronicles", the EVOLVERSE is an expanding collection of stories. Some of these stories have events and arcs directly connecting one story to another - meaning a particular short story can be the direct sequel to the previous one.
Meanwhile, events taking place in one story may, at times, have long lasting impacts in their resolution - which become the catalyst for other branching stories happening later on, even if the characters from these stories never happen to meet.
Some of the stories are short, more "isolated" (albeit remaining canon to the overarching continuity) and are resolved in a few chapters. These stories can work as extra material for a greater continuity, further explaining certain events that weren't necessarily key to the main story - for example, they can follow what a certain group of supporting characters were up to while the main characters were fighting their own battles.
Other times these short stories can introduce new characters and focus on them for a few chapters - these characters can later cross paths with, and join the plot of a story that is more long lasting.
Overall, as each story is being translated and slowly becoming more acessible to others (while I also keep practicing drawing), pages will be made and updated accordingly. In that sense, it's indeed an "evolving" verse.
However, most stories (save for the ones that work as extra material) are still constructed in a way that allows for them to be comprehended by themselves.
Important Note: *Characters will only be given pages once they make an appearance, and feats will only be updated to their profiles as they happen in the written story. Thus pages for this verse will likely take long to be updated, as they depend entirely on my writting *and* drawing pace.
Power of the Verse
The power of the characters Varies frequently and at times. This variation in power can be of a greater or lesser margin from one story to another, but remains consistent overall throughout the branching stories.
As this verse page is only updated according to the stories and characters currently available, and only up to the point where my current readers are at, the verse's power started as rather low and remained as such so far for most of the main characters - on the other side of the spectrum however, superior beings or powerful antagonists like Sephiria have made it grow visibly stronger with their more recent displays of power (As of February 08, 2019).
Speeds are currently ranging from Subsonic at average to Massively Hypersonic at best.
The displayed capacity of most known main characters are ranging around Urban levels of destruction save for the current stronger ones whose power reaches all the way to Tectonic effects at the Multi-Continental threshold or low planetary ones - in the scale of Lunar destruction.
In other verses such as Mirage Saga, however, their powers easily reach for the Stellar range of destruction and speeds are well beyond that of Light.
On the level of Gods and stories that focus on exploring the foundations of creation (such as Machina Mitternacht), the character's powers skyrocket well into tier 1 heights, reaching past far higher dimensions and even beyond them.
Regardless of the tier a particular story stands it, it's not unusual for characters to wield at least some degree of hax like Immortalities, Magic, some extent of Reality Warping, Mind and Soul manipulation, etc. For example, even at their BoS, Psions like Gale and Catrina have demonstrated Conceptual Manipulation with their Visions, albeit to a limited extent.
Furthermore and so far, due to the existence of:
- A system of Magic;
- Principles of energy (labeled as "Energeia" in this verse) with special properties and the even more advanced Gen-Particles;
- Powerful races like fairies;
- And unconventional skills in the form of the so-called "Uniquas" as of the moment, it can be said that this verse holds a wide array of powers in its arsenal. These range from similar and more generic ones (multiple types of elemental manipulation) to those set apart as a cut above the rest by their entirely different nature (like Sephiria's powers over Chaos).
All in all, if the verse's several stories are looked at on their own, the verse's power can go anywhere from weak to significant, or powerful to immensely so. When seen as a collective whole the verse is, without a doubt, a force to be reckoned with.
