AFTER EARTH

The Threats
Our peaceful existence was a brief one. Now, threats loom over us, every single day of our lives.

Just 143 years after landing on Nova Prime (in 243 AE), humanity weathered an attack from The Skrel: an alien species that had long considered Nova Prime their holy ground. To them, humans are vermin infesting their sacred land. We endured this first onslaught; we won -- but this was only the beginning.

The Skrel had underestimated mankind in their early attacks. But, through the centuries, the enemy's weapons became more advanced. In the war of 576AE, they finally released their ultimate weapon: The Ursa. A nightmare of a creature -- bred for warfare, and genetically engineered for one reason: to hunt and kill humans. Ursa prey on the pheromones humans secrete when they're scared. They can sense humans' fear. Many thought the Ursa unbeatable and awaited mankind's inevitable demise -- but a solution arose, and brought them hope.

Just as it seemed nothing could stop the Ursa, Cypher Raige inadvertently uncovered their weakness: without fear, humans are invisible to the Ursa. In an unprecedented show of self-control and discipline, Raige eliminated his fear and defeated the Ursa. This act of restraint became known as "Ghosting," and lifted Raige to new heights of fame. There are only seven Ghosts in existence. They are anomalies.
