The Divine is alive and continues to create the Twilight Mirage which is hiding the divine fleet as best as it can. Its core function is to propagate the augmented reality Mesh, which has not fully spread to the colony on the planet game.
Empyrean is typically dispersed, keeping its focus on maintaining the Twilight Mirage. When it goes to war, it takes the form of a humanoid bird-like mech, which has wings covered in gems reminiscent of beetle shells. The face is like a blue jay, with a crest on top.
