Levana Protocol: Dragon Egg Meteors
That last episode of Terra Autumn got me chomping at the bit for dragons! I decided to see what else I could learn about Levana and the dragons. I am very glad I did as three quarters of the lore is already published, and it is interesting.
There are also details about the meteors that should be falling soon as well. Anywho, here is some more information about this exciting community. This article will assume you listened to episode two of terra autumn, read my post about it or are otherwise already familiar with what Levana is becoming.
The first Levana Leveraged Index token (LLI) to be offered will be LUNA2x which will enable double exposure to the LUNA tokens price action. To offer this, Levana must first have some LUNA to put in the Mars protocol. This LUNA will be gathered from the community in two rounds, of which I look forward to participating in both. The first phase is dubbed the meteor shower and it ties in well with the published lore. The second phase is a community farming event.
The team has said that the meteor shower will commence sometime this month. Once the shower begins it will last 44 hours. This will be 44 one-hour long auctions. During these auctions, each participant can contribute any amount of UST they want, starting with a dollar. This contribution will guarantee them a meteor. The quality and rarity of meteors obtained will be based on contribution amount and that is how this is an auction.
The higher your contribution, the higher chance that your meteor will have a dragon egg in it! Of the contributed UST, 16.5 percent goes to the artists who created the NFTs with the rest going to buy LUNA for the protocol. there will be 202 dragons each hour for a total of 8,888 Levana dragon eggs, scattered across an indeterminate amount of meteors.
Meteors, once the shower is completed, will be able to be traded, cracked, or saved for later use. Cracking a meteor will either reveal a dragon egg or meteor dust. Each dragon egg is named and has a unique story to go with it. The dust has rarity tiers itself and will have uses in the future.
That ends the details that have been fully provided by the team. Now we should talk about what has been hinted at! Three out of four installments of the lore have dropped and these need to be read. I will give a synopsis and what I think may be noteworthy, but you should also go read them Word for word. In addition to being well written, the artwork is super neat.
The first bit of the legend begins with a Martian council being interrupted by the beginning of the meteor shower. They walk out to a crater where one meteor landed. As they approach the meteor cracks open revealing an egg. They then watch as the egg hatches a baby dragon. A few details and word choices stuck out to me.
There seems to be a good bit of interoperability being hinted at between Solana and Terra. It mentions that the Martians are most active at night, but they do things in the day as well as mentioning roman rulers named LUNA and SOL. They mention that the Martian day is 40 minutes longer than the earth day. Oh yeah, it seems like these Martians elders were at one point earth people.
Lunae Planum is the portion of mars that the golden dragon egg meteor landed, and it has an elevation of 500 meters. Turns out Lunae Planum describes an actual part of the moon that is in the Lunae Palus quadrangle. A picture of this section of mars is at the bottom of the page. When the egg hatched the elders smell lavender and blueberries. The initial location of this lore is given as Coordinates: RA 11h 11m 17s | Dec +6° 15′ 29″. The three elders (they look familiar) at one point are shown wearing medallions emblazoned with the capital letters D, S and M respectively.
The second installments picks up at the same coordinates two years (Martian calendar) after the meteor shower that brought the dragons. The elders treat the dragon as their mascot and care for it but eventually get bored and go back to grown up stuff. The dragon grows up with the martin children. One particular child Zahara creates a bond with the dragon she names Levana.
The lore also explains how LUNA orbs are a commodity necessary for the survival of Martians, but that takes a lot of work to mine. Eventually, Levana eats a bunch of the orbs. This both angers the elders and empowers Levana. When the old jerks try to capture and punish the dragon, She takes off with Zahara riding atop. The first dragon rider is born!
The first interesting detail for this lore is that the LUNA orbs only reveal themselves to living things. IDK what to make of that, but its certainly intentional. It also mentions a system of games and lotteries are used to keep the work fairly distributed among the Martians.
This could be a reference to LoTerra protocol integrations. The baby dragon was made comfortable by synthetic dragon wool and protected with inlets of shade. Shade protocol is a privacy protecting algo stable on secret that will drop soon. The inclusion of the word synthetic makes me think of mirror protocol, but I do not know what wool could mean here. They mention that there are two moons for mars. The smaller white moon is named Levana and that is how Zahara got the idea for the name.
The story describes Zahara as an ancient term for gold. It is a Hebrew word to be exact with some translations being gilded and some gold. They mention frolicking in the fields of mars below as they are lit by the stars. I think I heard Macedo use this term “fields of mars” and I am guessing that is what a farming section of the Mars protocol will be called.
The LUNA orbs are stored in a container underground, IDK what that could suggest. Levana ate enough LUNA to power their society for a year and it resulted in her precisely quadrupling in size.
The third bit of lore starts two more years later with Levana and Zahara still fleeing the rest of the Martians. They are now in Cydonia region on the face of mars. They fight and travel the planet while Levana grows full size. They both are uncomfortable on mars and want to go to the dragon’s home planet. More meteor showers are starting to fall.
Zahara travels to the dragon’s planet in a dream. It is a watery planet, and they land on a crystal quarry. They travel through a treasure cave to find a nest of dragon eggs. They are both drawn to a particular blue egg. When Zahara awakes, she knows she needs to find and raise the dragon egg from her dream. Cydonia is a real region on the moon as well. The name is taken from a historic city state on the island of Crete and this region is the one that contains the mars face that some people can see.
In the dreamscape, the portal they are flying towards looks like the Cosmos symbol so I’m thinking this is IBC stuff. In the dream Zahara is wearing a space suit that is itch-proof and smells of lavender and an unnamable tart flavor. In the picture of the dragon’s lair, there is a crystal that looks like the ETH symbol for sure. The lightning in the sky in a few places look like a chart pattern. It’d be super interesting to see if the lightning lines up with the price action of any cosmos or terra adjacent tokens.
That’s all I got right now! let me know if you notice any odd word choices or if you see weird things in the lore pics. Please go check them out here.
