* TheFogOfAges: The long-lived protagonists, considering they've lived through ''six million years'' (though, admittedly, only a couple tens of thousands of those concious). They routinely re-arrange/edit their memory. It's implied that they could hold all of their memories at once, if they wanted to, but having that many memories would affect their personality so drastically that most choose not to. Most the long-lived characters tend to hold a rough cliff-notes version of their memories in their heads, but not any of the details; the main character Campion intentionally prioritizes his "recent" memories, which in part drives the main plot. The beings who actually live through those 6 million years consciously tends to have problems verifying old data or check its significance, like Vigiliance [[spoiler:not realizing the importance of their information on the Andromeda and other stuff that would reveal the existence of the First Machines]], or [[spoiler:Abraham Valmik unable to truly confirm his memories about his interactions with the First Machines until his interaction with Hesperus confirms it]].

Except the Lines. Individually known as "shatterlings", the Gentian Line is composed of [[DwindlingParty slightly under]] [[SendInTheClones a thousand clones]] made from a woman who lived in the 31st century. They individually [[WalkingTheEarth roam the galaxy]], flitting from star to star at near the speed of light, skipping over the ages via {{time dilation}}. Their purpose is the explore and catalogue civilizations. Every quarter million years they all come together to share their experiences and combine their knowledge. They've existed for the past six million years, witness to the constant grind of civilization.
