Invertia (meteor storm)… an unprecedented disaster that struck the world during the 20th century.
Because of this disaster, numerous cities around the world were destroyed. However, within the meteor, an unknown element called mana (the all-encompassing element), was discovered, which allowed human technology to make rapid strides.
This also gave rise to a new species of human born with unique skills – the Star Pulse Generation (Genestella).
