A city floating among the clouds, Caelum is home of various weather systems that control the weather and climate on the ground below. These Systems are comprised of powerful beings who control one aspect of the weather and they work together to maintain balance on earth. However, pending war between these factions signals a catastrophic weather event that threatens Earth's inhabitants who are unaware of Caelum's existence.

As the former ruler of Caelum, the Lightning System was accused of conspiring against the humans of Earth in a diabolical plan known as the  "Mortal Cataclysm."
