;Abel : One of the few survivors of the planet that was destroyed by the Yabeh Weapon System. While onboard the Eldridge Able came into contact with the Wave Existence inside of the Zohar. The Wave Existence gave Abel its power so one day he could destory Zohar so the Existence could ascend back to the higher dimension it came from. Abel had been searching for his mother when he made contact and wanted to be with her so when he made contact with the Existence it received a mother's will. It construced a woman using Kadamony to be with Abel but Deus transfored the woman into the original Miang. Abel was the only human survivor of the Eldridge crash.

;Aveh : One of the two kingdoms of the Ignas continent. It is currently at war with the kingdom of Kislev.

; Deus : The main component of the Yabeh Weapon System.

; Eldridge : A Philadelphia Class interstellar war ship. The Eldridge was sent to the planet destroyed by the Yabeh Weapon System to collect survivors and retrieve the weapon. Eldridge was to transport the weapon to an uninhabited planet but Deus realized what was happening and took control of the ship. The captain tried to regain control but could not. He then caused the ship to self destruct to protect the people of the universe from it but before he did a child named Abel had already made contact with the Wave Existence inside of the Zohar Modifier. It is interesting to note that Eldridge is the name of the small US Navy ship alleged to have been involved in the famed Philadelphia Experiment.

During the initial test of the system Deus went out of control and connected to a higher dimension to attain more power. The resulting connection pulled the Wave Existence from the higher dimension and trapped it inside the Zohar Modifier. The power it got for the Wave Existence was too much and Deus went out of control and destroyed a colony planet before it shut down. The war ship Eldridge was sent to the planet to search the system and recover any surviors that were left.

; Wave Existence : A being from a higher dimension. It was trapped inside the Zohar Modifier during the initial test of the Yabeh Weapon System. It is responsible for the energy that powers the Gears and people's ether abilities.
