he Trinigons are a technologically advanced race, consisting of a majority of bipeds and a rare minority of quadrupeds. At the beginning, the Trinigons were not a unified race, but many diverse and self-important nations warring with each other on the planet of Tridentis. Ironically, they worshipped Valereena, the goddess of love and virtue, during this period that is known as the Cataclysmic War in the annals of the Trinigons, and the result of this constant strife was a war-torn and unstable society where the very real possibility of being killed without warning was ever present. Finally, tired of the omnipresent suffering and conflict, the leaders of all the nations came together in desperation to try and broker a resolution, with the three largest and most powerful nations presiding over the negotiations. The three presiding nations were known as the Paciscorum, and included the nations of Scriptori, Beroncus, and Heradon.
Twice, negotiations failed due to bickering and self-interest, and the war looked poised to continue in perpetuity. However, the third round of negotiations proved to be a success and many deals and compromises were struck between the nations, with guidance from the Paciscorum. The majority of the nations decided, for the greater good, to set aside previously jealously-guarded territorial lines and boundaries and unite their people under one banner, that of the Trinigon Alliance, with the Paciscorum forming the ruling council known as the Tridentate. The only exception was the mysterious infiltrators of the Fashall Brotherhood, who steadfastly refused to join the Trinigon Alliance as it would be an end to the autonomy that the Fashall Brotherhood was used to. The Fashall Brotherhood quit the negotiations after it became apparent that the Trinigon Alliance would be a reality and convinced a portion of minor nations to quit with them. They retreated to their lands at the tip of Tridentis and withdrew all communications and diplomatic relations with the rest of Tridentis, and there they remain to this day.
Fearing a repeat of the Cataclysmic War, the Tridentate decided to let the Fashall Brotherhood go without pursuit, and instead turned the newly formed Trinigon Alliance to the long and arduous task of rebuilding and recovery from the devastation of war. Slowly but surely, the Tridentate led the Trinigon people into a Golden Age of industrialization and urbanization, with great cities springing up all over Tridentis, until they reached “the final frontier” of space. The Tridentate saw the value of expanding their race to space and soon massive colonization fleets were built and the neighboring worlds were conquered, colonized and assimilated into the Trinigon Alliance. As the ages passed, the Tridentate became more than just leaders of the Trinigon Alliance, and were eventually venerated and then worshipped by the Trinigon people as living gods. They wielded absolute power within the Trinigon Alliance and their word was law. Upon the death of a member of the Tridentate, a replacement would be selected and elevated by the remaining members.
The worship of the Tridentate as living gods and the veneration of the number 3 and its symbolic significance became the chief tenet or belief of the Trinigon people, to the extent that all Trinigons are now genetically modified to have 3 eyes, and many of their structures and symbols were created with this tenet in mind.
