THE EARLY YEARS
It's hard to imagine a time before the Fixture. Yet for a period, it existed only in the mind of its illustrious creator, Darian Sebastian Fark. Memories do exist from those before the Fixture. But those memories are few and faulty and we have trouble interpreting their feelings of the absence.
In those pre-Fixture days, progress had begun its Seventh Renaissance. There was new construction everywhere. New offices, new houses, new factories, new everything. The quality of life was improving. And to go along with all of this advancement, Fourth Fidelity Bank decided to promote the arts, as they occasionally still do. They were expecting an increase of their visibility on the world stage in return.
