2150: On earth, Helios grows interested in space exploration. Helios begins the construction of ships for space travel, this sparks an interest for space around the city, and dozens of ships get built.
2150: The Helghan Corporation colonize a planet in Alpah Centuri. One of the first colonies outside our soloar system. (KILLZONE) What they didn't know was that there was already a species of aliens living there, the akrid. Reptilian insecticides that survive due to thermal energy they produce inside them. These creatures vicious nature slowed down the colonization process, and were even responsible for some companies abandoning the established colonies. (LOST PLANET)
2153: Helios makes contact with Helgan corps, and asks for permission to colonize the planet in exchange for workers, Helghan corps agrees. Thousands from Rapture, Antartica, and Greenland immigrate to E.D.N.

2170-2525: The Colonial Alliance rename themselves to Unified Mars Government. The United Nations Space Command (UNSC) begin colonization of hundreds of planets. Even though Earth went through Mutual Mass Destruction, humanity would gain a massive population growth. (HALO)
2200-2202: First Extrasolar War: Tensions rise between Mars and the Helghan alliance. Due to economic struggles on Mars, Helghan secedes all ties from the Unitied Mars Government, stopping the flow of precious resources to Mars. The UNSC responds by taking control of E.D.N.lll, and is easily able to crush the poorly equipped colonial forces. (KILLZONE)
2202: E.D.N. III is declared abandoned, portions of the planet are elusively put under a military state by the UNSC. Terrorism is high in these areas.

The following centuries, Halghast infantry will consist of nanosuited(CRYSIS) Plasmid induced (BIOSHOCK) soldiers. UNSC will rely on nanosuited (CRYSIS) fully augmented (DEUS EX) soldiers. Plasmids cannot be used if someone is fully augmented. The Mars Allience declared plasmids taboo. The Helghast empire prefer plasmids over augmentations because plasmids are more efficient due to they're planets harsh conditions.
The Mars Allience refuses to accept conduits into they're society. (INFAMOUS/PROTOYPE). This is because they have proven themselves impossible to control. All superpowered beings are forced to either hide ore surrender themselves to harsh government expermentation.
Halghast had tried to utilize superpowered beings, but conduits proved that they were too superior to they're ranking officers. They would rise through the ranks too quickly, gaining too much influence dangerously too fast. For a time, many conduits were assasinated to forbid them from rising up. Eventually, all conduits are declared "diseased", and are ordered to be killed on sight. This unfazes most conduits, because the Halghast empire covers less then 1% of they're home planet. Many Conduits live peacefully away from Halghan land. Helghast and conduits coexist on E.D.N. III in seperated cities.
2357: UNSC starts the ORION project. (HALO)
2362: Nevec starts the frontier project that involves warming the planet. In reality, it was the efforts of a small group of unnamed snow pirates that allowed the project to move forward (LOST PLANET)
2462: Nevec finishes "warming" ten percent of the planet. This, however, causes dormant dangerous akrid to awaken. The Helghast empire doesn't bother colonizing these forested areas, this is due to the fact that the terraformed jungles lack precious ores they want. Nevec on the other hand, starts manufacturing harmonizers and VS's for all they're military contractors. (LOST PLANET) The locust also come out of hibernation in an attempt to "Reclaim" they're planet. (GEARS OF WAR) Fortunately, the locust largely leave the humans alone. The locust that do attack human colonies are easily fended off thanks to the human's genetic mutations, nanosuits, and mecha technology.

2525: Project Olympus is put into place by the Mars Alliance. After years of research thanks to the ORION project, average UNSC soldiers are now augmented with 100% survival rate. These augmentations fall short of the ones SPARTANs received, but they still are very helpful. They include, increased mussle mass, increased lungcapacity, a decrease in reflex time by 30% and enchanced senses. Marines now wear Mark V SPI armor, now upgraded to enhance speed and strength, and are equipped with personal shielding, although it still falls short of MJOLNIR's capabilities. ODSTs have had their regular armor upgraded with personal shielding, improved alloys, and an improved HUD. (HALO)

Spartans: eight thousand soldiers: are picked by a unique gene pool, trained at a young age by the government to be supersoldiers: Trained at birth until the age of twenty: Most advanced armor and augmentations possible by the Mars alliance.
The Mars allience secretly used conduits in the ORION project as well.
Guardians: five hundred: are conduits with spartan armor. Indoctrinated at a young age to serve the alliance. Using power transfer technology, these conduits have electric, flaming, ice, and telekenetic abilities.
Zeus: twelve : Soldiers in mech armored suits. Meant to single handedly destroy armies. These are people that are as powerful as Alex Mercer.
Ancient: People who have had they're DNA altered in some way by ancient aliens (DEAD SPACE/METROID). There are only four know people who are ancients. It is unknown whether they ar paide mercenaries of the alliance or have been conscripted into their ranks.
Helghast empire: Because of they're militiristic rule, the majority of they're population are brought up into military training. Making the entire population on par with UNSC Nobles.

The Dweller then returns to Vault 13. He is denied access by the overseer and is exiled for his contact with the outside world. Furious, many of the inhabitants follow him.
July 2165: The Vault Dweller and his followers found the village of Arroyo.
October 2, 2188: The Vault Dweller's daughter is born.
2189: The New California Republic is formed, as are the Followers of the Apocalypse.
May 2241: Vault 13 receives a signal ordering their inhabitants to leave. A couple of days later, the doors open to reveal two squads of Enclave, remnants of the US government, soldiers waiting for them. Several are killed and the rest are captured. In the village of Arroyo, the grandson of the Vault Dweller, the Chosen One, leaves in search of a Garden of Eden Creation Kit (GECK) in order to save his failing village.
2242: The Chosen One succeeds in finding a GECK, but in his absence, Arroyo is attacked by the Enclave and its inhabitants abducted, intended to be used along with the inhabitants of Vault 13 in experiments to complete the Enclave's biological weapons. The Chosen One attacks the Enclave's oil rig and destroys it, rescuing the people of Vault 13 and Arroyo. Together and with the assistance of the GECK, they create a prosperous community.
2247: Three members of the Followers of the Apocalypse are captured by a tribe known as the Blackfoot for ransom. One of them uses his knowledge of warfare and tactics to train the tribals in fighting their enemies, earning their respect and leadership of the tribe. The Follower takes the name Caesar and uses the tribe to conquer neighboring tribes, adding their ranks to his own with every victory, eventually uniting dozens of tribes by force and destroying their identities. Caesar's Legion is born.
July 13, 2258: The Lone Wanderer is born, but his mother does not survive the experience.
2274: The NCR expands to the Mojave Wasteland, encountering Mr. House, the ruler of New Vegas who recruits three tribes as allies to form New Vegas. The New Vegas treaty is signed, 5% of the power generated by Hoover Dam is sent to New Vegas while the rest is sent back to California.
2277: The Lone Wanderer's father leaves Vault 101, forcing his son to flee for his own safety. The 19 year old travels the Capital Wasteland searching for his father, only to see him killed by the Enclave, who had fled to the east coast after their defeat at the hands of the Chosen One. The Lone Wanderer retrieves a GECK from Vault 87, assists a faction known as the Brotherhood of Steel, a group whose ancestors were US army deserters, in finishing the life work of his father, Protect Purity, and defeats the Enclave. He also assists a woman known as Moria Brown in writing the Wasteland Survival Guide, a book that is applauded as brilliantly researched and written. Despite the Lone Wanderer only doing research, the young woman states that he was the main author.
On the opposite side of the remains of America, the New California and Caesar's Legion clash in the Mojave Wasteland. The Legion attempted to take Hoover Dam, but the NCR was able to trick them into charging into Boulder City, which was rigged with explosives. The resulting explosion dealt heavy losses to the Legion, forcing them to retreat to the other side of the Colorado River, where they spent years regrouping. Angered at the failure of his men, Caesar orders his Legate to be covered it pitch, set on fire, and thrown into the Great Canyon.
2278: The NCR launches an invasion of Bitter Springs in response to the abduction and execution of soldiers. Due to a miscommunication, a group of First Recon snipers fire on a group of children, women and elderly. This is later recalled as the Bitter Springs Massacre.
2281: Conflict breaks out again between the NCR and Caesar's Legion again. Mr. House also hired a Courier to deliver a data chip disguised as an ordinary poker chip to him, but the Courier is intercepted and shot in the head twice before she is left for dead in a shallow grave. Over the weeks she makes a full recovery and sets out to hunt down the man that nearly killed her, who turns out to be the leader of the Tops, Benny. She cornered him in his private suite, disarmed him and then shot him five times in the chest with his own handgun. Upon learning of the true nature of the chip, she chose not to deliver it to Mr. House, and when the NCR, whom she had been helping ever since she set out to search for Benny, asked her to kill Mr. House, she did. The Courier latter helped the NCR win the Second Battle of Hoover Dam, where she killed the current Legate, Lanius in one on one combat, and then Caesar himself, breaking the back of the Legion and forcing them out of the Mojave.
2283: The east coast Brotherhood of Steel signs a treaty with settlements that it has established friendly ties with thanks to Project Purity. The Washington Confederacy is born. It begins to spread outward, towards the north and the west using technology salvaged from the Enclave and a massive robot known as Liberty Prime to eliminate all hostile forces with ease.
2286: The NCR pushes eastward, driving the Legion further back. Disorganized with the loss of their leader, the Legion was forced to abandon many strongholds that it had once held and flee to the uncharted lands in the east, raiding small tribes for supplies. However, before long they encountered the rapidly growing Confederacy and were forced to combat their highly trained troops and advanced technology. Eventually, the Legion was trapped in Tennessee, with the Confederacy on one end and the NCR on the other.
The Courier and the Lone Wanderer were both sent on missions to eliminate the remaining leaders of the Legion in the ruins of Nashvile. This mission proved to be a total success. While there, they encountered each other and mistook each other for enemies. They fought for hours, first using firearms, but then when their ammunition ran out they fought with knives and eventually in hand to hand when their knives broke. After a long and brutal battle in which neither combatant could gain the advantage, they both collapsed, too exhausted to even sit up. With nothing else to do, the two began to talk, learning much about each other and the factions that they were a part of, becoming friendly and realizing their misunderstanding. Eventually NCR and Confederate forces are sent to retrieve them, and make contact with each other for the first time. They later sent negotiation parties to meet each other, forming an alliance.
2289: The last remnants of the Legion are crushed. The NCR and the Confederacy sign the Treaty of Nashvile, which establishes the boarders of both nations, dividing the former United States of America in half.
2290: The Lone Wanderer and the Courier are wed.
As the years continued to pass, the people of America continued to rebuild. Industry and agriculture were reborn, while lacking the same scale as the Prewar world, it was more than enough to sustain the continent's now smaller population. However, they were not the only ones who had formed their own nations.
2294: A small fleet of ships, a couple of them military, dock on the east coast. All of them carry emissaries from nations in Europe and Asia. Accompanying each of the emissaries were individuals that were much like the Lone Wanderer and the Courier, talented and powerful people that had shaped the fate of their nations and defeated great enemies. The Liberator originated from the Russian Union, the Champion from the Royal British Empire, the Holy One from the Vatican, the Warrior from the Chinese Alliance and the Defender from the Japanese Federation.
2310: While delivering barrels filled with the strain of FEV that the NCR had started to produce to help develop the population of friendly Super Mutants, a truck breaks down near a Deathclaw nest, exposing several eggs. The eggs were taken for study, but when they hatch, the Deathclaws showed signs of increased intelligence and even the ability to speak. Bounties were put out for undamaged Deathclaw eggs in order to further this study.
2310 - 2525: Earth's populations continues to grow exponentially. Conduits, cyborgs, ghouls, and super-mutants work together to establish society on a torched planet. Earth tries to establish ties with the Mars alliance, but Mars refuses to associate themselves with the "tainted" earthlings. In a way, earth is more free than Mars, it is much more decentralized and has many more freedom than the Martian planets do.
2314: The black marker is found on the Yucatan peninsula by followers of apocalypse. Research is started immediately. After the dangers are discovered, the entire peninsula is querentined for research purposes. No civlians are allowed to enter the region. (DEAD SPACE)
2363: Earth adopts terraforming technology from E.D.N. III, allowing earth to make once hostile areas of the planet hospitable again.
2364: Red Markers are made on islands in the pacific ocean. They're able to provide large amouns of natural energy to the mainland while safely away from civilian populations. (DEAD SPACE)
2525: Due to the rising threat of "aliens", earth begins launching dozens of non-military space ships to establish itself as a space power.
Conduits are repressed by the Mars Allience and Helghast empire. By 2525, however, earth and E.D.N. hold large conduit populations. On E.D.N. III, forty percent of the population outside the Helghast territory was conduit, while sixty percent of earth's total population was Conduit. This was probably due to the fact that interracial marriage was romanticized by artists and storywriters on earth, and that they could share their works to E.D.N. III through Helios.
2528: Earth is admitted into the council. They do not, however, represent humanity as a whole, and instead earth becomes the "middle man" between the Citedel council and the Mars alliance.
