m (BGMaxie moved page Babel to Heart of Babel: New story event, makes it a point to expressly call it as the "Heart of Babel" rather than "Babel". With the origins revealed this change also makes better sense.)

Babel is a creature from the world of [[Paladia]]. Babel is an [[Aldore]] experiment to create a source of energy. Eclipsa transplanted [[Sol (Brave Exvius)|Heliarc's]] heart to the Babel machine, and thus both of these Hess sages, [[Sol (Brave Exvius)|Sol]] and Babel, originate from the same body.

Babel is an [[Aldore]] experiment to create a source of energy to power airships developed by Eclipsa.

Story

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Babel is an Aldore experiment to create a source of energy to power airships developed by Eclipsa. Her research had come to a halt as she was unable to find a proper way to make the Babel provide the necessary energy as it would shut down quickly. Eclipsa then devised her next course of action, she would take Heliarc's living heart who was rendered immortal and who himself had great magical powers into the Babel machine, thus giving it the energy source needed.

When Heliarc learned of what Eclipsa had done as he realized he was transplanted with his own Magitek Heart, he furiously stormed Eclipsa's lab to confront her about the truth which she confirmed. Eclipsa revealed that his heart was inside a mechanical box, which served to house the Heart of Babel but whose contents could not be opened unless destroyed. Heliarc faced Eclipsa (who wanted to kill him to avoid problems for herself) to regain his heart in the box and defeated her.

Heliarc was not able to open the box, and was visited by Pertira his longtime friend and suggested they go to her hometown, which he agreed to, taking the Babel with him. Eventually and due to both the Magitek Heart and the Heart of Babel being on Heliarc's possession, the Aldore government blamed the interference on the people of Hess causing relationships to sour as the Hess race was being discriminated upon.

Yuraisha visits Heliarc and reveals the current state of affairs, revealing she is seeking to create an organization that will protect Hess people like him, and requests that he joins her, as he risks being a target of the military shall he remain in Pertira's town. He agreed and Pertira joined them as he wanted to stay by Heliarc's side.

The Heart of Babel was thus in the ownership of Hess, turned into the power source of the airship Invincible and strangely granted the title of "Sage of Hess".

When the original Veritas of the Dark enacted a plan to seal the Sages in Crystal to force negotiations between the two factions, Babel was faced by an unknown member of the Sworn Eight of Paladia and sealed into the Wind Crystal.

When Veritas of the Heavens destroys the Wind Crystal, he unseals the Heart of Babil to provide power to the Invincible as they needed a powerful airship for their quest for revenge. Dr. Lazarov steals the airship for his own purposes and attempts to use it as a weapon of genocide for his experiments. A fellow sage, Bahamut, was awakened after the Fire Crystal was destroyed. Sensing Babel's heart beating in the airship, the Dragon King challenges the vehicle and blasts the airship with his Megaflare. Lazarov is forced to hide for repairs and Bahamut departs.

Etymology

The Tower of Babel is from a story from the Book of Genesis in the Hebrew Scriptures/Old Testament/Torah, as well as other various ancient documents. The story tells of how early humanity was living in one city (violating the commandment to spread out and fill the Earth) and began construction on a great tower that would extend to the heavens so they could see God. However, God destroyed the tower and confused their language, forcing people to spread out among the Earth.
