INTRODUCTION: SEASON 1

SINCE ANCIENT TIMES, OUR PLANET HAS BEEN VISITED BY POWERFUL ALIENS...

who can shift between parallel worlds as easily as we move from sunlight to shadow. Described in our myths as angels, gods and demons, these trans-dimensional beings often walk among us unnoticed, but they are locked in a battle as old as time with the future of humankind hanging in the balance.

Threatening our existence are the Archons, a sadistic race who blame Humans for the destruction of their once beautiful realm known as Hades. They have only one purpose - rain terror on the earth and enslave humanity. Standing against them are the Irin, a benevolent race of winged aliens with great power but limited numbers in the earth realm.

The Irin travel between their dimension of Basilea and Earth watching over humanity and keeping their immortal enemies at bay. But now, the evil activity of the Archons is escalating and the Irin must organize a ‘synaxis’- a group of ordinary humans with extraordinary hidden gifts that can save us from impending doom.

Lying in the outer Hebrides of Scotland, the tiny isle of Iona holds the key to our salvation - an ancient portal to the Irin’s dimension which can only be re-opened by the Synaxis. As this special group aligns with the Irin, long-dormant powers are awakened within them that will enable them to open the Iona Portal - allowing thousands of Irin warriors to reach Earth and intervene against the horrific Archon plot.

It’s a race against time to drive back the Archon invasion. From the volcanoes of Hawaii to the mountains of Colorado; from the plains of Texas and across the Scottish highlands - the Synaxis must learn to trust each other and their newfound gifts as they struggle against all odds to survive armed psychopaths, supernatural dark-forces and the re-awakening of an ancient volcano. This is IONA!

THE IRIN:
BENEVOLENT BEINGS FROM BASILEA SWORN TO PROTECT THE EARTH-REALM

ELIEL - this sassy, diminutive creature with a Celtic lilt has been entering the earth-realm for centuries keeping watch over humanity. Appearing as a young woman in cute summer frocks, she prefers ‘dancing’ in the sky over battle but is as fierce as they come when the need arises.

 

ARATON - a powerful Irin warrior who has intervened more than once to save key humans from Archon plots. As kind as he is strong, Araton appears as an African prince, committed to war on behalf of humankind and help them to regain their lost abilities.

RAND - tall, powerful and strikingly beautiful, her Asian looks are crowned with a flowing mane of wild, auburn hair. She carries a deep wisdom along with her weapon of choice - a gleaming, samurai-style sword.

KHALIL - with long, white hair and Egyptian looks, this lanky Irin loves the gunfighting lore of the Old West. He has the attitude of Doc Holliday and the fighting skills to match and doesn’t hesitate to step into character every chance he gets.

MENDRION - Tall and slender with silver hair and eyes, this Irin prince has the ability to re- activate the Life Force lying dormant in humans at an accelerated pace. He is an Irin of very few words... preferring action instead.

​BENT ON ENSLAVING HUMANITY

KAREINA (23) - the tall, pale girl with jet black hair hides the true reptilian form of Kareina, a powerful Archon leader with nothing but hatred for the human race. She is a cold and brutal killer driven to make humanity pay for the ruin of her once beautiful home-realm of Hades.

BOTIS (17) - Kareina’s right-hand man appears to be just a young boy, but his black eyes reveal an equally black soul. He is all too happy to do Kareina’s bidding, especially when it comes to ‘breaking’ the human spirit - even better if his victim is a woman.

TURRELL (45-60) - wraithlike with tangled, coal-black hair and sunken eyes, he is Botis’s partner- in-crime. He often wishes he was not constrained by the rules of human engagement set forth by the Ancient Ones.

THE OVERSEER - embodied in a floating, plasma-like orb, the Overseer demands answers and complete loyalty from his Archon minions - Kareina included.
