The six Pillars are bizarre uncut diamonds the size of a brick, created by a race of super-ancient people.

HistoryEdit

Early HistoryEdit

Though unconfirmed, the Pillars were most likely constructed by the super-ancient beings, since they included them in their second trial.

The Six Sacred StonesEdit

The Five Greatest WarriorsEdit

PurposeEdit

The six Pillars are intended to be placed at the massive underground Temple-Shrines, the Vertices, each connecting to a corner of the Machine during a Titanic Rising. When each Pillar is set, a triangular shape is removed with the bottom end of the Pillar, creating the tip of the inverted pyramid and thus readying the Machine.

Each Pillar must be cleansed by the Philosopher's Stone and the Firestone before it can be placed, and the Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Pillars must have a second cleansing in the Basin of Rameses II.

They initially appear as cloudy, with an anomalous void in the center containing a liquid form of Helium, H-3. Upon being cleansed the Pillars are translucent like glass, with the Helium void becoming silver in appearance.

Pillars and their RewardsEdit

The First Pillar - Knowledge Edit

The First Pillar was kept by the House of Saud. After leaving the possession of Jesus Christ, it was left at a fortress in Van for years by before Genghis Khan raided it and took the two Pillars there. He gave the First Pillar to a Bedouin tribe as a gift of thanks for aiding him, a tribe which became the Royal House of Saud.

Its reward is 'Knowledge', which appears as formula and text on the sides of the Pillar, in the Word of Thoth. As Alby and Lily discovered, the secrets given by the pillar (one on each of the four sides) include; instructions for an ultra-strong yet ultralight form of carbon-fibre; a diagram of the star Sirius and its two companion stars, Sirius B and Sirius C, which is a zero-point field; and an explanation of the Universal Expansion Problem. The fourth piece of knowledge was never revealed.

The First Pillar was placed on the 10th of December 2007, at the first Vertex beneath Lake Nasser near Abu Simbel.

It is currently kept in an abandoned mine at Jack's farm.

The Second Pillar - Heat Edit

The Second Pillar was kept by the Neetha tribe. After leaving the possession of Jesus Christ, James (Jesus's brother) hid one of the Pillars in the Temple of Solomon, until the Pillar was taken to Africa by the Templars and somehow ended up with the Neetha.

Its reward is simply described as 'Heat', which Wolf's chief researcher, Felix Bonaventura, believed was the secret of perpetual motion, or limitless energy.

The Second Pillar was placed on the 17th of December 2007, at the second Vertex beneath Table Mountain near Cape Town.

It is currently kept in an abandoned mine at Jack's farm.

The Third Pillar - Sight Edit

The Third Pillar was hidden within a trap system, which was in turn within the Third Vertex. After leaving the possession of Jesus Christ, it was left at a fortress in Van for years by before Genghis Khan raided it and took the two Pillars there.

The Pillar's reward is 'Sight'. This was theorised by Wizard to be the ability to see one's own death, due to rumours of a holder's blood being on a pillar and seeing their demise. After being placed at the Third Vertex, Jack and Wolf were given a vision one of them falling into an abyss beneath another Vertex, and was believed to be Jack's death since it was apparently his blood on the Pillar. However at the sixth Vertex it was revealed to actually be Wolf's death, and that it was his blood that had been on the Pillar.

The Third Pillar was placed on the 11th of March 2008, at the third Vertex beneath a Hokkaido cliff-side.

It is currently kept in an abandoned mine at Jack's farm.

The Fourth Pillar - Life Edit

The Fourth Pillar is was kept by the British Royal Family. After leaving the possession of Jesus Christ, the Pillar was passed on to one of the families who would become the House of Saxe-Coburg.

Its reward is 'Life', which has not been revealed. This could be the ability to bring people back from the dead, and Wizard and Jack theorise that it could work in conjunction with the Fifth Pillar's reward; 'Death'.

The Fourth and Fifth Pillars were placed simultaneously on the 18th of March 2008, at the fourth Vertex beneath Lundy Island.

It is currently kept in an abandoned mine at Jack's farm.

The Fifth Pillar - Death Edit

The Fifth Pillar was kept jointly by the Royal families of Russia and Denmark, and was held by Carnivore. After leaving the possession of Jesus Christ, the Pillar was passed on to one of the families who would become the Houses of Romanov and Oldenberg.

Its reward is 'Death', which has not being revealed. Some believe this to be a weapon, dealing death to the enemies of the one who holds it, and Wizard and Jack theorise that it could work in conjunction with the Fourth Pillar's reward; 'Life'.

The Fourth and Fifth Pillars were placed simultaneously on the 18th of March 2008, at the fifth Vertex beneath Diego Garcia.

It is currently kept in an abandoned mine at Jack's farm.

The Sixth Pillar - Power Edit

The Sixth Pillar was hidden within the tomb of Jesus Christ. This was the only Pillar to never leave Jesus's possession, and upon his real death was left with him in his tomb in the middle of the Dead Sea in Israel. The tomb contained a false sixth Pillar to fool any thieves.

Its reward is 'Power', which grants whoever holds it whatever they wish - be it world domination, the death of an enemy or the destruction of cities on their whim. Lily was accidentally granted this power when she placed the final Pillar at its Vertex, and it overpowered her will, making her kill several people before Jack managed to get her to stop.

The Sixth Pillar was placed on the 20th of March 2008, at the Sixth Vertex beneath Easter Island.

Jack knocked it into the abyss, believing no one should have its power, and so it was presumably destroyed.
