A Remote colony planet was overseen by Satyavan (PROSE: Jukebox) as part of Faction Paradox experimenting with technology to alter the perceptions of millions at once for the Armistice. (PROSE: The End of the Beginning) The Remote on this world lived in zones resembling potential civilizations which could have existed had history gone differently, where the signals made them act as members of these civilizations.
Satyavan had ulterior motives in resurrecting his own civilisation of origin which was erased from time. Satyavan refused to report of the technology's success to the Faction, and many Faction agents were sent to the planet and killed by Remote. Mirze investigated, learned that Satyavan was the pawn of "lost souls" resembling shadows who had been erased from time and wished to return, and took his place as overseer. (PROSE: Jukebox)
