The Great Unknown, often dubbed "Locus", is the third and final continent covering Aether, and is the largest. It earns its current name for being unexplored, mostly due to the treacherous nature of its oceans, and the hostilities of some occupants. It is covered by many islands, most of them small. Despite its size, it is the least populated of the three continents, sporting only five known civilisations, occupied by the Sabari, Archontians, Storics, Herrehalians and Jazirans. The furthest stretch, the Shadowlands, are the most treacherous and mysterious parts of Aether as a whole.
