Ruled over by the flamboyant High Priestess, Faygar, who has gathered around her all the timid, frightened, superstitious survivors. Children desperate for someone to lead them, save them.

They worship the past of their long-dead parents. The world of technology, computers, and space travel; when mankind seemingly had control over the elements. The Ants are stuck in the past, believing the Ancestors will save them, but in the meantime they settle for farming and hard work in the snow-capped mountainous region where they live.
