- For other meanings of "Garden", please see Garden (disambiguation).
The Garden is a walled realm situated at Heaven's mysterious Summit, surrounded by round walls and an open, broken gate. It mysteriously changes its appearance depending on each visitor: no one sees precisely the same thing when arriving and peering though the gates.1 Some see a simple garden tended by unknown hands, others a small and sheltered orchard with a solitary fruit-laden tree, or even a golden throne, empty and waiting for a worthy occupant.2
Nearly nothing definite is known of the Garden except that it is the birthing grounds of new archons from shades that had made their way to the Summit. Within its walls, each newborn archon undergoes a strange transformation, though none can entirely recall what has transpired.3
