As members of the oldest beings in the universe, the Watchers saw all.
The oldest beings in the universe, the Watchers were supposed to observe and were forbidden from interfering in human affairs.
His heart skipped a beat as he realized that the last great Oracle, his mother, appeared just before the Schism, when the Watchers went to war and the universe was almost destroyed.
As he spoke, memories streamed through his mind, memories of the universe before the Schism and afterwards, when he and a few others were cast alone onto earth.
The whole of Damian's history, his forefathers', all the way to the Beginning, when spirits milled without purpose before the Original Beings shaped the universe into something much greater.
You become the only person in the universe that can influence him.

It was Romas-- the man responsible for dragging her across the universe-- who rescued her.
It was a good, perfect little life, so much more than she ever expected, with the exception that her best friend in the universe-- Kiera-- might as well have been dead to her as far as Romas and his clan were concerned.
