History of Hy-BrasilEdit
An island situated off the coast of Ireland that is perpetually covered in fog or unnoticeable to the outside world, it was a common meeting point of the remnants of past civilizations. This included Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Visigoths, Etruscans, Minoans, Kylfings, Lombards, Gauls, Hittites, Sea Peoples, Vinca, Cucuteni-Trypillian and more. Revealing of the location and safe passage requires an object of great religious or cultural importance.
It was called “ultima lacum ad salutem” to the Romans and “an poll deiridh a salvation” to the Irish, now translated as “the final pit to salvation. Its legend had been passed down through the generations of many cultures, that it could save a person’s soul to the afterlife, no matter how corrupt, if they brought along a token from their dying civilization as sacrifice.
Somehow connected to atmospheric and oceanic events, the fog lifts for one day every seven years, which the Warehouse hides every time using technology similar to the F.I.S.H. Sometimes, expeditions may accidently discover the island; if they try to unrightfully take away any artifacts, they will be met with accdients and disasters. Many artifacts from the island do not have anomalous abilities, which is why the Warehouse leaves them be. However, the island allows agents to take actual artifacts, knowing their intentions of them and the Warehouse.
- It is not to be confused with Saint Brendan’s Island off the northern coast of France, where legendary beasts are said to still roam to this day.
