Breakdown of the “Island”
Ok, I’m fairly new here so don’t laugh to hard.
Say the the island was created in biblical times, and populated with “people” who each had a special duty to do to keep the rest of mankind safe. A great leader, advisor,” Adam an Eve”, gatekeeper, etc.,and these positions were passed down through the generations by the bloodlines. Over the years, outside infuences disrupted the smooth flow of the system that protects mankind, causing it to start to break down.
