In a war that engulfed most of the world's Hives, these children lost parents, homes and by a lucky chance had avoided the same fate - the loyalists intended to burn out the whole planet to bare earth, and it would happen, if the Pact, always attracted to war, hadn't joined the battle in support of the rebels.
