The Harbinger Union is one of two major factions shaping the REDEEMER universe.
The United Nations, following the succession of Vernier Ebonheart and his Ebonheart Pact, reformed themselves as the United Nations of Earth in the year 2044. As time went on and tensions between the UNE and the Pact mounted, the faction began reforming it's military structure. It became more formal, much more organized, and as a result far more powerful. With the creation of the Ebonheart Jord machina, the UNE's hatred for the Pact grew and grew as they were left behind in the dust of a space race of epic proportions.
In 2048, the Eden came to Earth, bringing with them unparalleled technologies that spurred mankind ahead by generations. Despite the tension that had grown between the two major factions, there was finally peace on Earth - but it was short lived.
The Eden’s technology was nothing short of an enigma. World powers wanted to know what it was, if they could use it for themselves. Greed had once again infected the waters of peace, and soon the fighting began. Rogue groups began attacking Eden facilities, with attacks taking the lives of military and civilians alike. Outraged, High Chancellor Apollos, the leader of the Eden, strikes a deal with Vernier Ebonheart: take six glass orbs, called the Pieces of Eden, and get them off Earth. Ebonheart accepted the proposal, and with an Eden ship, fled to Jupiter where the Jord team had constructed the first of many settlements. Feeling betrayed by their leader, the Eden have Apollos executed and join forces with the United Nations in an effort to combat the Ebonheart Pact, deemed traitorous for “stealing” the Pieces of Eden. From here on, the Ebonheart Pact became known as the Ebonheart Empire.
Using what technology they had at their disposal, the Eden help the forces of Earth create Machina of their own, far more powerful than the Jord. These machines would become known as the Lancea and the Telum. These Machina would fall under the M-Class, and would become the staple unit of the Harbinger Union.
