Les Giorni di Settimana
Les Giorni di Settimana ("The Days of the Week") were seven seraphims created by the Nameless God of Time to manage time. Each were given power over one day of the week, thus preventing them from fighting each other. Over the millenia, they served as the guardians of time, preventing others from meddling with time. Only four incidences have every occured in which the God of Time himself* had to intervene. However, throughout the millenias, the Giorni have grown tired of the normal routine. They eventually started a game called the Festival of Death, which inacts the paradoxical curse known as the 7 Days of Purgatory, in which an entire week shall repeat as long as twenty-two people die. To make things interesting, if the contestants of the Giorni's Festival win, they are awarded powers called Capacitas.
Origins of Le Canzoni di Morte
Three years ago, the Giorni played the 'game' at Sadyous against 22 people. They won and gained Capacita. A nobleman named Isa al-Ma'un gathered the 22 people and formed Le Canzoni di Morte. While Le Canzoni di Morte were suppose to help keep world peace, al-Ma'un went missing and Nero took control, using the Canzoni for his own purposes.
With Nero's death at the hand of Bianca, Le Canzoni di Morte disbanded. Several died. The Giorni got bored of the Canzoni and decided to seek revenge for their boredom by staring a Festival of Death, where four Canzoni were located.
7 Days of Purgatory & Festival of Death
7 Days of Purgatory was created as a joint effort of the Giorni during a mission to stop a cult from destroying time. Through their combined powers, they create time loop around one week. In the area affected, the time will repeat while outside time will occur normally. Travel into the paradoxical zone is impossible unless powerful in time manipulation.
The Festival of Death is test, spanning for 7 weeks from a repeating week. The contestants experiencing the repeating week are oblivious to the fact but lingering memories have been known to surface. The only way to survive is to beat the Giorni during those 49 days. Even if some people have been killed during that 'round', they will be resurrected. As tied in with the Festival, 22 people must be killed during each 'round', or one week, averaging usually of three deaths per day. If more or less than 22 people die during a Round, the Festival will end and the contestants win. If the contestants fail to win within 7 rounds, they remain in the state in which they were killed during the last round.
