The Atlan people, once known as Pleiadarans, fled their colonies in the Pleiades when the Draco came to conquer the peaceful humans. They were pursued to the Sol system where their distant cousins had established a powerful military on Barsum. Rather than bring their pursuers to their kin’s doorstep, they chose to colonize a neighboring planet, Maldek. With the guidance of their immortal sages, the Nacals, they quickly established the city of Atlantis, and with some borrowed technology from their neighboring kinfolk were able to thwart & ground the Draco, leaving them stranded. Wars waged between Atlan & Draco for three centuries until the Lyrans arrived with their battle station, Luna, to enact peace under threat of total annihilation.
