'''Sanctum''' is a self-governed sanctuary within a radiation shield dome on the [[Sanctum (moon)|Alpha Moon]]. It was built to be a sanctuary for human race since [[Earth]] was becoming uninhabitable. The [[Science and Technology|radiation shield]] protects [[Sanctum Citizens]] from intruders, dangerous lifeforms, adverse atmospheric conditions and celestial events, such as temporal flares on the moon. Sanctum was built by the first four families of astronomers, scientists, doctors and mechanics on [[Eligius III]]'s [[Mission Team Alpha]] from [[Earth]]. These families, also known as the [[Primes]], became the royal leaders of Sanctum. Sanctum is a safe, peaceful community, rich in traditions.

== History ==
In 2045, the [[Eligius Corporation]] set out on a space mission to look for oil from other planets since [[Earth]] was [[Pre-Apocalypse History#Oil Depletion|running out of oil]]. [[Mission Team Alpha]] was sent to explore life on "planet" Alpha. To prepare them for fatal radiation, the astronomers were turned into [[Nightblood]]s using [[Becca Franco]]'s serum. They also used Becca's cybernetic implant technology known as the [[Mind Drive|Memory Drives]] in order to keep log of their findings. Upon arriving on the moon, the atmosphere turned out to be survivable without Nightblood. They established a settlement to serve as their mission base. [[Josephine Lightbourne]] suggested calling the place "Sanctum" because it was safe and peaceful.

Upon arriving on the moon, the atmosphere turned out to be survivable without Nightblood. They established a settlement to serve as their mission base. [[Josephine Lightbourne]] suggested calling the place "Sanctum" because it was safe and peaceful. The team brought with them a thousand [[Science and Technology#Embryos|embryos]] genetically-engineered with Nightblood to protect against solar radiation. The embryos were later used alongside the descendants of the team to create the settlement.
   
However, while the radiation was survivable, the moon was filled with other dangers such as [[Children of Gabriel|enemies]], hostile lifeforms, poisonous plants and atmospheric conditions such as temporal flares. To protect their settlement from these dangers, the astronomers used Becca's technology to build a radiation shield dome around their settlement. The shield has been critical in stopping bugs under eclipse-induced psychosis from entering the settlement. The region within the shield became Sanctum. Under the "divine" royal leadership of the [[Primes]] - the original four families - Sanctum has been peaceful and safe place.

Eventually, [[Gabriel Santiago]] rebelled and destroyed the remaining embryos in an attempt to avoid more resurrections, but [[Josephine Lightbourne|Josephine Prime]] instated Oblation to get rid of anyone who wasn't a potential host and was thus diluting the bloodline. However, [[Kaylee Lee]] stopped Oblation, after she killed Josephine.

Sanctum lived without [[Earth]] contact until two centuries later when [[Clarke]]'s group arrived on [[Eligius IV]], seeking for shelter following Earth's [[Damocles Event|third apocalyptic disaster]]. Following their arrival, a conflict broke out that led to the deaths of most of the Primes and the overthrow of their rule.

===Naming Day Ceremony===

===Tai Chi===
One of Sanctum's biggest traditions is Naming Day during which a person with Royal Blood ([[Nightblood]]) takes on the name of a [[Prime]]. Children born with royal blood are known as "hosts" and are protected until they reach a mature age to undergo this holy naming ceremony. For example, when [[Delilah]] becomes of age, Sanctum holds a naming ceremony for her, after which she becomes Priya VII.

[[File:Naming_Day_in_604.png|thumb|Naming Day in Sanctum.]]
  +
One of Sanctum's biggest traditions is Naming Day during which a person with Royal Blood ([[Nightblood]]) takes on the name of a [[Prime]]. Children born with royal blood are known as "hosts" and are protected until they reach the age of 21 to undergo this holy naming ceremony. For example, when [[Delilah]] becomes of age, Sanctum holds a naming ceremony for her, after which she becomes Priya VII.
   
 
The ceremony begins with parties and celebrations. This is followed by a repentance stage during which the people of Sanctum make amends with fellow Sanctum citizens. They then write their sins and float them away in lanterns. Once the repentance ceremony is over, the host is called to the stage for their official naming ritual. The host is asked to enter into a secret room. When the host comes back out later, they have not only the name but also the memories and personalities of the Prime they were being named after. They officially become a Prime, marking the end of their Naming Day Ceremony.

To the rest of Sanctum citizens, the Naming Day is a holy ceremony honoring the Primes. However, the reality is that the Primes have been manipulating them in order to bring their loved ones back to life, using the Royal Bloods as hosts. Each Prime has a [[Mind Drive]] which stores all their consciousness including memories and personalities. When a Prime dies, their consciousness is kept in the Mind Drive until there is an available host with royal blood. During the Naming Ceremony, the Primes use the Mind Drives to transfer the previously dead Prime's consciousness into the new host. In so-doing, the Prime comes back to life, using the host's body.

The Palace is where Sanctum's ruling royal family lived. It was formerly occupied by the Lightbourne family of [[Russell]], [[Simone]] and their daughter, [[Josephine Lightbourne]]. It was also, formerly occupied by the other Prime families.
{{Clear}}
+
  +
In "[[From the Ashes]]," Clarke orders the palace vacated and for no one to live in it. However, after Russell comes into danger, Clarke is forced to move him into the palace for safety while the Adjustors park themselves outside of Russell's door. During a confrontation with Russell, Clarke inadvertently sets the room and ultimately the palace on fire. Standing on the balcony with the palace engulfed in flames behind her, Clarke orders everyone to let the palace burn as a symbol of Sanctum's new freedom which has no use for a palace.
  +
  +
Starting in "[[False Gods]]," the burned-out remains of the palace can be seen in the background, even though it is not entirely burned down. Clarke later admits that she may have gone a little overboard by attempting to burn it down.

=== The Reactor ===
  +
{{Main|Science and Technology#Nuclear Reactor|l1=Nuclear Reactor}}
  +
[[File:703 Nuclear Reactor.png|thumb|left]]
  +
A [[Science and Technology#Nuclear Reactor|nuclear reactor]] was brought to Alpha by original team so they could be able to power their colony. It was built under the Machine Shop behind several layers of containment chambers and walls.
  +
It has 4 fuel rods with an estimated maximum output of 3400 MegaWatts. The meltdown point of the reactor core is at 1500 °F.
  +
  +
It powers not only the living area, but the outer defenses - [[Science_and_Technology#Radiation_Shield|Radiation Shield]] as well. In '''''[[Adjustment Protocol]]''''', when the alliance of [[Children of Gabriel]] and [[Wonkru]] decided to work together in their goal to take over [[Primes]], they needed to get through the said shield to be able to get there. Clarke, working from the inside, had to take down the power in order to let them in, so she blackmailed [[Priya]] treating life of [[Ryker|her son]] forcing her to shut down the reactor and stood up against Primes.
  +
  +
In '''''[[From the Ashes]]''''', [[James Crockett|James]] told [[Raven]] about abnormal activity in the reactor core. She thought she solved the problem but in '''''[[False Gods]]''''' the malfunction occurred again which to led to the death of James and his partner when his carelessness triggered a nuclear meltdown. [[Emori]] fixed the shifted fuel rod, but the coolant was still leaking and the core was still heating up, raising the levels of emitted radiation. Raven tricked [[Hatch]] and 3 other prisoners to fix the piping, lying them about conditions being safety which eventually killed all 4 of them though they managed to finish with the help of [[John Murphy]].

This article is about the settlement within the radiation shield. You may be looking for the moon.
Sanctum was created to be a sanctuary for the human race.
Russell [src]

Sanctum is a self-governed sanctuary and a microstate within a radiation shield dome on the moon of the same name. It was built to be a sanctuary for human race. The radiation shield protects the Sanctumites from intruders, dangerous lifeforms, adverse atmospheric conditions and celestial events, such as temporal flares on the moon. Sanctum was built by the first four families of astronomers, scientists, doctors and mechanics on Eligius III's Mission Team Alpha from Earth. These families, also known as the Primes, became the royal leaders of Sanctum. Sanctum is a safe, peaceful community, rich in traditions.

History Edit

In 2045, the Eligius Corporation set out on a space mission to look for oil from other planets since Earth was running out of oil. Mission Team Alpha was sent to explore life on the moon Alpha. To prepare them for fatal radiation, the astronomers were turned into Nightbloods using Becca Franco's serum. They also used Becca's cybernetic implant technology known as the Memory Drives in order to keep log of their findings. Upon arriving on the moon, the atmosphere turned out to be survivable without Nightblood. They established a settlement to serve as their mission base. Josephine Lightbourne suggested calling the place "Sanctum" because it was safe and peaceful. The team brought with them a thousand embryos genetically-engineered with Nightblood to protect against solar radiation. The embryos were later used alongside the descendants of the team to create the settlement.

However, while the radiation was survivable, the moon was filled with other dangers such as enemies, hostile lifeforms, poisonous plants and atmospheric conditions such as temporal flares. To protect their settlement from these dangers, the astronomers used Becca's technology to build a radiation shield dome around their settlement. The shield has been critical in stopping bugs under eclipse-induced psychosis from entering the settlement. The region within the shield became Sanctum. Under the "divine" royal leadership of the Primes - the original four families. Since then, Sanctum has become a peaceful and safe place. Eventually, Gabriel Santiago rebelled and destroyed the remaining embryos in an attempt to avoid more resurrections, but Josephine Prime instated Oblation to get rid of anyone who wasn't a potential host and was thus diluting the bloodline. However, Kaylee Lee stopped Oblation, after she killed Josephine.

Sanctum lived without Earth contact until two centuries later when Clarke's group arrived on Eligius IV, seeking for shelter following Earth's third apocalyptic disaster. Following their arrival, a conflict broke out that led to the deaths of most of the Primes and the overthrow of their rule.

Naming Day Ceremony Edit

Main article: Naming Day
Naming Day in 604

Naming Day in Sanctum.

One of Sanctum's biggest traditions is Naming Day during which a person with Royal Blood (Nightblood) takes on the name of a Prime. Children born with royal blood are known as "hosts" and are protected until they reach the age of 21 to undergo this holy naming ceremony. For example, when Delilah becomes of age, Sanctum holds a naming ceremony for her, after which she becomes Priya VII.

The ceremony begins with parties and celebrations. This is followed by a repentance stage during which the people of Sanctum make amends with fellow Sanctum citizens. They then write their sins and float them away in lanterns. Once the repentance ceremony is over, the host is called to the stage for their official naming ritual. The host is asked to enter into a secret room. When the host comes back out later, they have not only the name but also the memories and personalities of the Prime they were being named after. They officially become a Prime, marking the end of their Naming Day Ceremony.

To the rest of Sanctum citizens, the Naming Day is a holy ceremony honoring the Primes. However, the reality is that the Primes have been manipulating them in order to bring their loved ones back to life, using the Royal Bloods as hosts. Each Prime has a Mind Drive which stores all their consciousness including memories and personalities. When a Prime dies, their consciousness is kept in the Mind Drive until there is an available host with royal blood. During the Naming Ceremony, the Primes use the Mind Drives to transfer the previously dead Prime's consciousness into the new host. In so-doing, the Prime comes back to life, using the host's body.

Death and Burial Edit

When a Prime dies, the other Primes take out the Prime's Mind Drive from the host's body. They store it until there is another available Royal Blood to serve as a host for the Prime.

The funeral for Sanctum Citizens is considered to be a holy ritual during which the dead are offered to the woods.

Locations Edit

Palace Edit

Sanctum Prime Palace 604

The Palace is where Sanctum's ruling royal family lived. It was formerly occupied by the Lightbourne family of Russell, Simone and their daughter, Josephine Lightbourne. It was also, formerly occupied by the other Prime families.

In "From the Ashes," Clarke orders the palace vacated and for no one to live in it. However, after Russell comes into danger, Clarke is forced to move him into the palace for safety while the Adjustors park themselves outside of Russell's door. During a confrontation with Russell, Clarke inadvertently sets the room and ultimately the palace on fire. Standing on the balcony with the palace engulfed in flames behind her, Clarke orders everyone to let the palace burn as a symbol of Sanctum's new freedom which has no use for a palace.

Starting in "False Gods," the burned-out remains of the palace can be seen in the background, even though it is not entirely burned down. Clarke later admits that she may have gone a little overboard by attempting to burn it down.

The Reactor Edit

Main article: Nuclear Reactor
703 Nuclear Reactor

A nuclear reactor was brought to Alpha by original team so they could be able to power their colony. It was built under the Machine Shop behind several layers of containment chambers and walls. It has 4 fuel rods with an estimated maximum output of 3400 MegaWatts. The meltdown point of the reactor core is at 1500 °F.

It powers not only the living area, but the outer defenses - Radiation Shield as well. In Adjustment Protocol, when the alliance of Children of Gabriel and Wonkru decided to work together in their goal to take over Primes, they needed to get through the said shield to be able to get there. Clarke, working from the inside, had to take down the power in order to let them in, so she blackmailed Priya treating life of her son forcing her to shut down the reactor and stood up against Primes.

In From the Ashes, James told Raven about abnormal activity in the reactor core. She thought she solved the problem but in False Gods the malfunction occurred again which to led to the death of James and his partner when his carelessness triggered a nuclear meltdown. Emori fixed the shifted fuel rod, but the coolant was still leaking and the core was still heating up, raising the levels of emitted radiation. Raven tricked Hatch and 3 other prisoners to fix the piping, lying them about conditions being safety which eventually killed all 4 of them though they managed to finish with the help of John Murphy.

Outer Fields/Greenhouses Edit

603 Farming area in Sanctum

The Outer fields surround the town. Greenhouses are located in these grass plains. The outer fields are used for growing crops and harvesting.

The Gagarin was landed in one of the outer fields until "Memento Mori".
