"The Descended is set in the fictional world of Soano, a world inspired by many things. Specifically, it follows three groups of adventurers on their various quests."
— Webcomic profile.
"The Elementals are a group of heroes formed by Sanik Archer Ronado with the intention of controlling all eight elements in an adventuring party. From there, they grew steadily and had endless adventures together, until they grew into something far more dangerous: true heroes and symbols of the peace in their land, due to their many deeds to protect their homeland of Helopia.
After The Battle of Helops, however, the group was altered at a fundamental level—their dynamics would never be the same, and this was where they were seen to have “fallen”.
While they still have the same core focus on adventure, their focus has shifted more towards the things they value the most: saving others, growing strong enough to defeat the Agent Of Chaos that they fought that day, and learning the truth about his master.
They are secondary protagonists of The Descended, who have their own part to play in this tale of the fallen, this webcomic of The Descended…"
—Summary of The Elementals.
Sharing much of the experiences of The Elementals but always somewhat separated from them, it was only recently that their full potential began to come out. As a whole, however, they are still trying to find themselves—they still find a thrill in adventuring and share the same overall goal of The Elementals, but much of their positive traits have been lost to selfishness: including their motivation for doing so.
Despite their best attempts to distance themselves from the shadows they once were, however, they can’t shake the past of who they once were away, unable to let those parts of them fade into obscurity. Their bad pasts give them an overall grim outlook on their prospects, but despite that, they continue to trudge on. To this day, the two formerly-united groups remain in a friendly rivalry with another, each trying to out-compete their counterparts—despite their dislike of working with The Elementals, the simple fact remains that they still work together as a team.
The Latens may only be the tertiary protagonists of The Descended, but they still have their own equally important part to play in this tale of the fallen, this webcomic of The Descended…
