The planet became abundant in resources, the Garde where given their powers and the Chimæra came out from hiding.

All Garde share physical enhancements such as strength, speed and senses. They also have the common Legacy of Telekinesis. Regular Garde will develop various Legacies that vary, the final Legacy is known as a master Legacy.

The Elders of Lorien, and those that will grow into their roles, are said to have all the Legacies between them. With Pittacus Lore, the leader of the Elders, possessing all of them.

This involved collecting the chosen Garde, who was recognised as the next generation of Elders, and sending them to Earth with their Cêpan to hide. A charm was placed on them so that they could only be killed in order of their assigned number.

Meanwhile, a young Garde named Ella was born to Raylan and Erina. Raylan owned a restored fuel powered ship; he sent his employee, Crayton, with Ella and his beloved Chimæra to the ship where they managed to escape the invasion and travel to Earth.
