What is D’Olex?
The known universe in the Lore of Energy and Light® book series is called D’Olex. There are three galaxies in D’Olex. This universe is vast, and richly populated with multiple races on many planets.
The galaxies of D’Olex
Astoroz is a vast galaxy in D’Olex. It contains two star systems, that have tens of planets and moons. One of these star systems is home to the Warrior race called the Valkers. Long ago they began warring against other races and conquered much of Astoroz. Now they have set their sights on the second galaxy of D’Olex, Vylonia.
“The Alliance of Planets has amassed the greatest armada in history in Vylonia. A million ships bear the Cross, but I fear it will not be enough. The Valkers know they are close to snuffing out the last Light in the known universe.”
Vylonia is a slightly younger galaxy than Astoroz. This galaxy consists of two star systems and is considered the most densely populated of all the galaxies. One of Vylonia’s star systems is home to the Space Station Quorum Treaty, built by the Alliance. Quorum Treaty is thought to be impregnable. This is why part of Vylonia has been a safe haven from the Valkers for so long. Until recent events in Book 1, the Valkers had not attacked any planets in Vylonia.
WARNING: spoilers ahead
The youngest galaxy in D’Olex is Via Lactea. Readers will recognise Via Lactea as Latin for Milky Way, from its Greek translation “Milky Circle”. This means Earth is part of D’Olex. No other planets or star systems from Via Lactea are mentioned in the book series.
Two major characters come from Earth, Zach Salt and Alzarrae. Both characters are drawn into the war between the Alliance of Planets and the Valkers when Earth is attacked, however the circumstances of how they come to ascend their home planet are very different. Zach Salt is befriended by allies of the Alliance. Alzarrae is befriended by a Valker, who tells him,
“You must learn the ways of D’Olex or perish in its struggles.”
Planets of D’Olex
There are tens of planets in D’Olex. Many of these planets are only mentioned in passing by POV characters and have not yet been witnessed by readers. Other planets are known to have rich histories and have been seen through the eyes of the characters. The planets are too numerous to mention here, yet the main ones will have dedicated blog posts in time.
The writer of the book Quorum Treaty® notes the challenge of describing such a large universe,
“Should this universe have more than three galaxies? Yes, perhaps. For the sake of telling the story, a line had to be drawn somewhere. If hundreds of galaxies and millions of planets were described in the book, the story would get lost. Ultimately it is a story about people not planets.” – Author Glen Rothlisberger.
