The Structure – The Shield
The Center of Life is located in the heart of The Structure and most individuals speculate that this must be the reason for The Structure’s existence.

The Structure is a super-massive building that houses all of the Eoni living on Avaria. The exact date of its construction, the materials used and the architects themselves are a mystery. The Structure is a hybrid of ancient materials and new construction implemented by the recent generations of Eoni. From the outside, all that can be seen are the huge walls that surround the interior. There are many chambers, catacombs, individual buildings and relics within the walls. The Center of Life is located in the heart of The Structure and most individuals speculate that this must be the reason for The Structure’s existence. Inside the walls a thriving Eoni community exists complete with everything from libraries, housing, government buildings and more.
The Shield is a Mana force- eld that radiates upwards from the Center of Life, protecting everything within The Structure. Its radiance can be viewed from a thousand miles away, day or night. None of the Eoni truly understand it nor do the Humes living on the outside. Most Humes and Eoni believe that The Shield has always existed; they believe it is a side effect of the Center of Life’s power. Some speculate that The Shield’s appearance (color, light strength) actually mirrors the health of the entire planet. The Shield powerfully repels all Humes who try to enter The Structure in addition to any Mana or physical assaults that could attempt to damage The Structure itself or the Eoni occupants inside. Consequently, Humes steer clear of The Structure and most have all but forgotten it even exists.
