Following the Prelude trailer, which explained the birth of the world and the creation of “Concepts” such as Space, Time, Nature, Chaos, and Civilization, the new Omen trailer dives into each of their relationships. Most importantly, it reveals that human civilization corrupted Nature and Time. This results in conflicts that were resolved by the creation of a Council of Providence.
The trailer reveals that the Gods had created five “avatars” for the concepts. Each has the same silhouette shown at the end of the trailer. This likely means that fans will get to see five new characters themed after the five concepts introduced: Space, Chaos, Civilization, Time, and Nature. In comparison, the first generation of Hololive English VTubers had “myths” as its central concept.
