From the introduction: The Aun present a unique threat to Union: a cultural challenge to Cradle, backed by a strong,
centralized ecclesiastical government and a population of billions motivated by deep cultural
trauma. They are not a small civilization, and a concentrated one; unless stopped now, they
may prove able to shape themselves into a point, a dagger to deal a fatal blow to Union.
As a people, the Aun claim the mantle of succession from Old Humanity. Though humanity
persisted on Cradle -- Earth , as the Aun call it -- through the events of the Fall, only the Aun
can trace a direct line to the precursor race. There was no break in their timeline: only
movement. Where Union lost the thread, the Aun extended it. This makes them, in their eyes,
first among heirs, and Union simply upstart stewards.
