Ruling over the galaxy. Their Grand Commander is the chilling Terrian (aka The Lost One). The tentacle-headed aliens kidnap beings from other planets and transport them to their prison planet (Almythea) as convicts to mine crystals, vital to their survival. The Latchers’ memory-erasing weapons ensure their victims have no recollection of their former lives when they are dropped off through the Shock-Forget Net (the Net). It’s all part of their sinister plot to expand their brutal Empire – ignorant prisoners (wipe-outs) are far easier to control than informed recidivists. The Net, however, has a far more insidious purpose beyond merely erasing memory. Capable of veiling the true energy and spirit of the Synergists, benevolent immortals, destroying the Net would not only return the prisoners’ memories but the essence of their souls.
