Unknown 9: Awakening Lore

As you walk Haroona’s path, you will collide with warring secret societies, explore the depths of a parallel reality, and this realm’s potent energy to outsmart and outfight those who stand in your way.

Before embarking on this epically mysterious adventure, make sure to familiarize yourself with the video game’s lore essentials.

The Leap Year Society
Founded in 1888, the LYS are an elusive secret society whose goal is to bring enlightenment to all of humankind. You can count on its members to help you along your journey.
The Ascendants
A breakaway faction of the LYS, the Ascendants believe in obtaining enlightenment at all costs. Prepare to clash with this clandestine group’s soldiers as you progress through the game.
The Fold
Highly sought by both the LYS and the Ascendants, this otherworldly realm is said to contain immense power and knowledge. Its potent energy is what fuels Haroona’s unique abilities.
Quaestors
These are the Unknown 9 universe’s most curious minds. They are driven to uncover the lost wisdom of our collective past. Members of the LYS and the Ascendants are considered Quaestors, as is Haroona.
