-->'''Ingra''': I had you all summoned here because I want to offer you a choice. The recent troubling revelation of these mortals who possess power akin to ours ''cannot'' be allowed to threaten us. I've done what I can to keep them under my observation, but the time has come to take a fresh step. A united front among ''all'' First could withstand any threat. I must reunite Elysia. It will take a strong leader to unite us. Pyrem of Dexter is too hampered by his emotions to rule a rejoined Elysia. I have been content to allow our separation to continue...but no more. You have all sided with me in the past. Show me that same devotion now. All those who willingly provide that which I need will gain favor in my eyes. Consider this carefully...we are all taught to [[ItsAllAboutMe place one's self before all]]--to serve me now is to save yourself. Those who cross me or withhold help from me would be wise to remember the...''volume'' of my anger...the strength of my dungeon walls...and the ferocity of my disappointment. I am the strongest of our House. This is not a boast, but pure fact. You have all felt the sting of my power. Keep in mind the ''anger'' that fuels me. You all owe me. I'm collecting but a small fraction of that debt. If you fail me now...I ''will'' remember. The choice is yours. Back me...or make an enemy of me. Your eyes betray the deadly fire of your hatred. ''Good''. I'm basking in its warmth. Send me your power. Hate me all you like, but you'll each manifest what's needed...because you really have no choice.

The titular First are a race of [[PhysicalGod powerful deities]] who reside on the planet Elysia. Years ago, they warred with one another until their leader, [[TopGod Altwaal]], put an end to the fighting by separating Elysia into two Houses, House Dexter (the First [[TheNeedsOfTheMany who put the needs of others before their own]]) and House Sinister (the First [[ItsAllAboutMe who put their own ambitions before the concerns of others]]), before disappearing for parts unknown. Now, the discovery that [[TheChosenMany certain individuals (Sigil-Bearers) on many other worlds are being bestowed]] [[KillTheGod the power to potentially kill their kind]] is sending panic through the First's ranks.

[[TheIngenue Persha]], a Secundae (offspring of two original First) of House Sinister which is ruled by [[EvilMatriarch her mother Ingra]], embarks on a quest to [[HaveYouSeenMyGod find Altwaal]] in the hope that he can return to Elysia and reunite the First against the Sigil-Bearers. [[AmbitionIsEvil Seahn]], a Secundae of House Dexter, plots to [[TheUsurper replace Pyrem as leader of House Dexter]]. [[DarkIsNotEvil Gannish]], a First of House Sinister, heads off to investigate the mystery of the Sigil-Bearers and uncovers a startling revelation about his fellow First. And Ingra seizes the opportunity to [[TakeOverTheWorld claim all of Elysia as hers]]...
