The Temporal Anomaly, often shortened to the Anomaly, is a mysterious entity and a phenomena on Sanctum that is a portal to other worlds.[1]

History Edit

The Anomaly was first discovered by Mission Team Alpha. It appears to be controlled by an alien artifact called the Anomaly StoneGabriel Santiago has been studying the Anomaly for 150 years.


In "The Old Man and the Anomaly", it is revealed that the radio signals get absorbed by the Anomaly and retranslates in The Verge, where it's possible to pick them up here in endless, repeating waves. It is also revealed that the Anomaly does the same as the Red Sun and that the Anomaly has similar effects on plants, only it's "constant and weirder". The Anomaly gets into people's minds, causing them to hear things and hallucinate, sometimes their darkest fear, their deepest desire, and both at once.

In "The Blood of Sanctum", it is revealed that the Anomaly is controlled by a mysterious, ancient artifact of a possible alien origin, known as The Anomaly Stone.

Temporal Flare Edit

605 Temporal flare

A temporal flare seems to be a green light source in the sky that shoots out other green flares that burn, destroy, or "petrify" anything they touch.

In "The Gospel of Josephine", Gabriel (posing as Xavier) notices a Temporal Flare nearby. He tosses Charmaine Diyoza a rope and tells her and Octavia Blake to get out and run. Diyoza gets out, but she realizes that Octavia has no time. She tells her she will return. Octavia submerges herself in the quicksand-like substance and survives the Temporal Flare with only damage to a hand that was left exposed. Diyoza manages to dig Octavia out and they run after Gabriel/Xavier.

Throughout the Series Edit

In Sanctum, the Anomaly makes its first appearance, as Raven and Jordan see it from Eligius IV towards Alpha, mistaking it for a pole.

In The Old Man and the Anomaly, Gabriel Santiago, Charmaine Diyoza, and Octavia Blake begins make their way to the Anomaly, before encountering it. After they're looking at the Anomaly, Diyoza, who begins to hallucinate her unborn, future daughter, walks into the Anomaly, with Octavia following her. Both Octavia and Diyoza went into the Anomaly, and after 2 seconds, Octavia comes out of the Anomaly.

In The Blood of Sanctum, Gabriel, Bellamy, Octavia, and Echo, begins investigating the Anomaly. Gabriel shows them an extraterrestrial artifact, known as The Anomaly Stone, and explains to them about it. They begin to activate it, causing the Anomaly to expand. After their tent gets caught in the Anomaly, Hope Diyoza emerges and appears to them, saying that an enemy has her mother, before stabbing Octavia for unknown reasons, causing Octavia to disappear into a green mist as the Anomaly returns to its normal state.
