Serendipity is a fairly primitive world, inhabited by human colonists, the Hajira, seeking to escape the chaos of the Fall.
Because of their lack of technology and isolation, the Hajira were unprepared to deal with slavers who happened upon them. The Hajira also have genetic memory, meaning they remember everything that their ancestors experienced. Thaddeus Blake, a Wayist priest living amongst them, called for help and it arrived in the form of Captain Dylan Hunt and the Magog Rev Bem. Eventually the slavers were driven off but certain circumstances resulted in the deaths of almost all the Hajira as well.
- Serendipity is the effect by which one accidentally discovers something fortunate, especially while looking for something else entirely. The word derives from an old Persian fairy tale and was coined by Horace Walpole on 28 January 1754 in a letter he wrote to his friend Horace Mann (not the same man as the famed American educator), an Englishman then living in Florence.
