Krypton Wiki

"He who kindled the sun. We used to worship all of the gods, but now, only one. Do you know why? At the time of creation, Rao looked out at the chaos and saw wasted potential, and so he formed the stars and planets, the most perfect of which became Krypton. You see, our very planet is a symbol of fully realized potential, Seg. It is also harsh and inhospitable. The only thing protecting us is the force dome, and the only thing protecting the dome is... order. Sadly, your parents chose chaos. I need to know if you intend to follow in their footsteps."
