with the possession of Poseidon's remaining artifacts, which through it's
magic helped propell them in technology, science, and not the least of
Atlantis was greedy and fought countless battles in an effort to claim
more land. A giant earthquake struck Atlantis, swallowing the entire
continent into what would become the Atlantic Ocean. In the midst of the
disaster, an oracle cast a spell over the sinking continent using the
Trident of Poseidon. The Trident's magic created a giant shield that protected
Atlantis from the consuming sea.The remaining artifacts of Poseidon, including
the Trident, helped sustain Atlantis through the ebb and flow of it's magic.

sole ruler. Kouros was a tyrant, a dictator who enslaved all who opposed
him. In an effort to speed Atlantean evolution in the seas, he began testing
