In an era before the fall of the Vo'lach (PROSE: The Gendar Conspiracy) in 10,000,000 BC, (PROSE: Ghost Devices) Auteur came to Gendar with Gideon and Virtuoso and established Gendar society as a "billion year con-job" (PROSE: The Gendar Conspiracy) to seed artificial prophecies in ancient history to be found in the future and contribute to Auteur's masterplan to bring the Peace. (PROSE: White Canvas) Under their gods' guidance, the Gendar built a metropolis and the Statue of the Goddess. Auteur and Gideon left, but Virtuoso remained among the Gendar as the governor of Gendar's planetary government, the Historic Preservation Society. Gendar's early history would be obscured, recorded only in fossils and documents hidden in the Statue of the Goddess. (PROSE: The Gendar Conspiracy)

(PROSE: White Canvas) The wider universe became aware of Gendar and its life, and the planet came to be swarming with archaeologists, anthropologist, and other scientists. Three major schools of thought emerged: that Gendar life had a normal explanation, that the whole planet wasn't real, and that aliens were to blame. 14 universities banned discussion on the planet, and 28 denied its existence altogether. The Gendar Is Fake Trust asserted Gendar was an interactive hologram.

They allowed Virtuoso to continue governing the planet. (PROSE: The Gendar Conspiracy) Littlejohn remained to investigate the inside of the Statue of the Goddess. Fleeing the Mammoths' attack on the Dawns, Graelyn Scythes, Archimedes Von Ahnerabe, and Aesculapius met with Littlejohn and Aesc helped translate a prophecy concerning the Hollow Childe.
