History

The Isu were a hominid species that developed on Earth thousands of years ago where they emerged as the leading intelligent civilization on the planet.

In time, they came to be known by a variety of names by humanity who called them the Precursors, the First Civilization and as Those Who Have Gone Before.

In order to investigate a coming cataclysm, a trio of precursors consisting of Juno, Jupiter and Minerva formed the Capitoline Triad' that dedicated in preventing their civilizations destruction from the impending solar flare.

Human followers of the Isu known as Hermes came to call themselves the Hermeticists and followed his religious and philosophical teachings.

Overview

In appearance, the Isu were humanoids that were indistinguishable from their creations that became mankind with them being designated as Homo sapiens divinus (H.S.D.). They were distinguished for being more physically imposing with their kind standing 20 inches taller than humans. The Precursors were revealed to possess a triple helix DNA structure. In addition, they were said to possess six senses compared to the five senses of humans with their sixth sense being called 'knowledge'. The Isu were said to possess a natural longer lifespan compared to humanity though they were not immortal.

Their society was divided into a number of castes such as the Illuminat.

They had an understanding of mathematical rules for the universe allowing them to change it through their 'equations of reality' theory. This theory posited that the nature of the universe was dictated by mathematical equations and someone that was able to understand them was able to rewrite reality.

Precursor architecture was a combination of styles used by various human civilizations such as Sumerian, Egyptian and Babylonian.

Isu technology was noted to be highly advanced and far greater than mankind. They made use of ultra-modern alloys as part of their metals.

They had the means of recording genetic memories allowing for such knowledge to be passed onto descendants.

A device constructed by the Isu was a machine called the Eye that allowed them to perform calculations and predict possible or even alternate futures.

One of their lasting creations were the Pieces of Eden that allowed them to control the network of neurotransmitters in human brains. These devices could take a variety of forms such as an Apple or a Stave.

Under their Olympos Project, they developed a series of hybrid organisms that were powered by Precursor relics.

The Precursors were responsible for creating a virtual existence known as the Gray that operated as a kind of afterlife for their kind.
