(Cable II#82) - In Reality-22073, circa 2000 A.D., Cable failed to save  Randall Shire (possessed by the Undying Semijan (see comments)) and seeking to gain control over humanity via mind-control and a message of peace and harmony) from an assassin (Domino/Neena Thurman possessed by the Undying Aentaros).

    Shire's death was blamed on mutants, and an anti-mutant crusade engulfed the world: Mutants were destroyed, and the DNA pool remained untainted by evaluating children regularly and performing genetic surgery when necessary to wipe out any trace of the x-factor gene.

    However, despite this, Shire's message of peace, love, and harmony lived on in some fashion. Over the centuries, his words remade humanity and turned Earth into a paradise of freedom and peace.

(Cable II#80 (fb) - BTS) - The Harmonists eradicated hatred, poverty, and war, and they developed cures for all diseases.

(Cable II#80 (fb) - BTS) - At some point, Earth was renamed Harmony.

(Cable II#80 (fb) - BTS) - Having mastered time travel, the Harmonists used microscopic time probes to view past events without being detected by the locals.

(Cable II#80 (fb) - BTS) - For centuries, the custom on Harmony was that travelers between cities picked a host family in every city they visited.

(Cable II#80 (fb) - BTS) - Harmonists bio-engineered saber-toothed tigers as guardians of the peace to help protect them from raiders from the Ranshi Empire.

(Cable II#80 (fb) - BTS) - The Harmonists used microbe-sized translators.

(Cable II#80 (fb) - BTS) - Starfarers traveled to Niers for trading purposes.

(Cable II#80 (fb) - BTS) - Eyla Cire was put off by starfarers' alien manners and ways, and she found their talk of business -- which was all they spoke about -- to be tedious.

(Cable II#80 (fb) - BTS) - Hikers on foot visited different cities on Harmony, although none had visited Niers in ages.

(Cable II#80 (fb) - BTS) - At some point, Eyla and Ezra Cire listened to Socrates argue philosophy (at some during the 5th century B.C.).cire-eyla-harmony-22073-cab79-fates

(Cable II#81 (fb) - BTS) - The Fates warned the Ranshi Emperor that his empire and their every existence was imperiled, as events taking place 2000 years in the past would split the timeline and that the Ranshi Empire was but one of two possible futures.

(Cable II#80 (fb) - BTS) - The Ranshi soon learned that the Earth of the other timeline was known as Harmony. As Harmony posed a threat to their empire, the Ranshi resolved that Harmony must be destroyed.

(Cable II#80 (fb) - BTS / Cable II#81 (fb)) - The Ranshi Empire warred with the Harmonists, but with little success. Eyla concluded that the Ranshi worshipped power.

(Cable II#81 (fb) - BTS) - For months, despite numerous casualties on both sides, neither gained a clear advantage.

(Cable II#80 (fb) - BTS) - The two realities believed that only one of their realties could exist and that the other would be a shadow that would vanish as a result of their war.

(Cable II#80 (fb) - BTS) <One cycle (month or year?) before the main story> - Circa 4004 A.D., Rigellian traders visited Harmony. Eyla Cire either used an old universal translator (the size of an ear bud) to communicate with them or possibly she obtained one from them.

(Cable II#79 - BTS) - The Fates mystically appeared before Cable, vaguely advising him of imminent threats of the Ranshi Empire and Harmonists (with representatives of both posted, but not identified).

    As Cable returned to his secret base, he was instead transported to Harmony (aka Earth in Reality-22073) circa 4004 A.D.

(Cable II#80) - While painting something in the woods, Eyla Cire, alongside her saber-toothed tiger guardian, encountered and greeted Cable, who appreciated that he was on a future Earth, although not his own. She gave him the old translator she still had in her carry-all since the Rigellians traders had last visited, noting that it was not stylish like the modern translators, which were microbe-sized. Cable was instantly taken with her beauty and he considered that he had never met someone who seemed so relaxed and confident when meeting with a stranger, although he had never met a woman with a pet saber-toothed tiger, either.

    After introductions, she correctly surmised that Nathan was a traveler, noting that the only travelers she had encountered were starfaring traders. She invited Cable to stay at her tower for his visit, explaining how travelers always picked a host family in every city they visited. Her mention of Harmony reminded Cable that he had heard that name mentioned by the commander of the robotic hunters (Malan of the Ranshi Empire) who had tried to capture him hours earlier. 

(Cable II#80 (fb) - BTS) - The computers in Eyla's bloodstream informed her father, Manuel, and the celebration planners that she was returning with a traveler.cire-eyla-harmony-22073-cab82-cableimage

(Cable II#80) - Bringing Cable back to her tower, Eyla told him there would be a celebration in his honor, and then she introduced him to Manuel, whom she instructed not to be dull before departing to design special raiment for that night's celebration.

    Later, at the celebration, Cable was impressed by the peoples' carefree and friendly nature, which Eyla credited to a harmony between body and spirit and that life should be a place where all were free to enjoy the fruits of paradise. She suggested Cable forget the problems in his past life and begin anew on Harmony, and Cable considered her to be both beautiful and intelligent and that he had not been so comfortable with anyone since he wife, Aliya Jenskot; he further appreciated that she felt the same way about him. As the two danced a waltz, Eyla shared how they learned from the past via time probes, blending the wisdom of the past with the science of today.

    Eyla continued that genetic engineering was the Harmonist's greatest triumph, giving them the biological computers in their blood and their saber-toothed tiger guardians, and allowing them to keep the race pure by carefully monitoring the genetic code of all children. Cable -- presumably appreciating that this could refer to eliminating mutations -- questioned her about this, but as she dismissed it as part of everyday life, they were interrupted by an attack by the Ranshi Empire. Cable engaged the attackers but a blast sent him back to the modern time period, and he emerged in his safehouse a millisecond after he had been pulled forward in time.

(Cable II#80 - BTS) - Cable discussed his time travel experience with his associates Blaquesmith and Irene Merryweather, and he had his base's systems put on full alert.

(Cable II#80) - Apparently after the assault had ended, Eyla lamented to her father that Nathan was gone and that the city computers could not find him anywhere. Manuel assured her that Cable was safe, as he was not a man who died easily.

(Cable II#81 - BTS) - The Ranshi briefly transported Cable out of time to their timeship Conquest, but they returned him upon realizing that he was the nexus of the divergence.

(Cable II#81) - The Fates appeared before Manuel Cire, telling them that Cable was the key to the past, present, and future, and that he was the only one who could set them free.

    Cire subsequently prepared a ship to be launched 2000 years into the past, loading numerous guardian saber-toothed tigers and various supplies. He further instructed Eyla that she needed to accompany the mission as her friend Nathan was the nexus of their time and space, and that his actions would create either the timeline of the Harmonists or the Ranshi. He told Eyla he feared that she was their best chance to convince Nathan to make the right choice...if not for all of Harmony then at least for her. cire-eyla-harmony-22073-cab82-vssandella

(Cable II#82) - The Harmonists' ship, containing both Manuel and Eyla Cire, traveled back to the modern time period of Earth-616, matching space-time coordinates and with deflector shields on full power, rendering them -- as far as they knew -- invisible to any sort of detection. They detected the nearby Ranshi ship, but noted that they were a second out of phase and figured that the Ranshi would not know they were there. 

    Eyla subsequently reported a chronotron reading from the city below, which she reasoned must be Cable. She added that they should have a fix on him shortly, but that to transport him on board, they would have to drop their shields for an instant, which could prove dangerous with the Ranshi timeship in the area. Manuel accepted that risk, stating that they didn't know what deceptions the Ranshi had told Cable. He further instructed Eyla that Cable was a primitive and that they must convince him that Harmony was the proper timeline.

(Cable II#82 - BTS) - Meanwhile, the Ranshi nonetheless detected traces of a chronotropic energy array and realized that this was the shielded Harmonists. Appreciating that the Harmonists had to act soon as the time divergence point was only hours away, Sandella Ranshi ordered that the instant the Harmonists snared Cable they should be transported to that site.

(Cable II#82) - Manuel insisted they act now, but warned the others to be prepared, as the Ranshi could use the momentary shut-off of their deflection shields to attack. 

    The Harmonists transported Cable up to their ship.

(Cable II#82 (fb) - BTS) - The Ranshi beamed aboard the Harmonist ship.

(Cable II#82) - Aboard the Harmonist ship, the Harmonists (aided by the saber-toothed tigers) and Ranshi (aided by their Eliminators) battled. As Eyla and Sandella fought, Cable recognized them both as counterparts of his former wife, Aliya, and he telepathically asked them all to please stop. Cable's telepathic force of will made all of the Ranshi, Harmonists, and their allies stop and listen, and he asked what the Ranshi and Harmonists expected of him.

    After Sandella of the Ranshi revealed the fate of humanity in her timeline if Cable saved Randall Shire from an assassin that night, Eyla told Cable that in her timeline (Reality-22073), he would fail to protect Shire, who would die. However, his message of peace, love, and harmony lived on. Over the centuries, his words remade humanity and turned Earth into a paradise of freedom and peace.

    Sandella then told Cable that Harmony offered the peace of the grave and that mutants like herself ruled the Ranshi Empire; she told him to ask Eyla where the mutants were in her paradise. Eyla tearfully confirmed that in her timeline, Shire's death was blamed on mutants, and an anti-mutant crusade engulfed the world: Mutants were destroyed, and the DNA pool remained untainted by evaluating children regularly and performing genetic surgery when necessary to wipe out any trace of the x-factor gene.

    Eyla reiterated, "Let Shire die, Cable, and humanity will finally achieve peace and harmony." She further countered Sandella's arguments with, "Let Shire die, and our advanced medicine will cure your techno-virus...then you and I can live together in paradise."

    Both Sandella and Eyla told Cable that the only thing they knew about the assassination attempt was a name: Domino (who had been possessed by Aentaros).

(Cable II#83) - Eyla wept as Cable was sent back to Earth.

    Approximately 10 minutes before the point of divergence, Eyla and Manuel observed remotely from their ship. Eyla considered that she and Cable could be so happy together if he saved their timeline, but she wondered what would happen if he picked the other reality and what would it feel like to fade into nothingness. Manuel assured her that as their ship was present at that time, they would not fade from existence, although their reality would cease to exist, and they would become orphans in the timestream. "Just like Cable..." Eyla considered.
    At the same time, Sandella and Holdyne had a virtually identical conversation.

cire-manuel-harmony-22073-postdiv-cab83(Cable II#83 - BTS) - Cable stopped Domino from killing Shire but also used the entity Semijan that was possessing Shire to cause him to alienate his followers, thus diverging Reality-616 from Realities-2775 and -22073.

    Communication from the Harmonists' ship to Harmony ceased the moment Cable stopped Domino from killing Shire.

(Cable II#83) - Manuel reported the loss of contact with Harmony, and Eyla confirmed that Cable had diverged both timelines and both Harmony and the Ranshi Empire were now no more than worlds that could have been. Manuel asked what they should do, and Eyla told him that they should contact the Ranshi timeship as they needed to negotiate.
    At the same time, Sandella and Holdyne had a virtually  identical conversation.

cire-eyla-harmony-22073-cab84-withsandella(Cable II#84 (fb) - BTS) - Eyla and Sandella realized that they were alternate reality counterparts of each other, and they wondered how many others like them existed in the Multiverse (including, they suspected, someone Cable had once loved and lost). Appreciating their differences and their similarities, they decided that it would be much more exciting to combine their forces and see what they could accomplish working together in this century. Armed with 2000 years of cybernetic technology and genetic engineering, they would forge their own timeline: "The Sandeyla future."

(Cable II#83) - After Cable and his allies had thwarted the Undying, Eyla and Sandella transported Cable aboard one of their ships. They told him of their plans and noted that before they ventured off to the stars, they had wanted to say goodbye. Both Eyla and Sandella gave him a passionate kiss and told him not to forget him as they would be back, after which they teleported him back to Earth.

Comments: Created by Robert Weinberg, Michael Ryan, and Scott Hanna.

    There is a LOT going on in this story arc. Randall Shire and Cable brought everything together. You can read the profiles on Shire and the Undying, etc. to get the other half of the story, but the Undying don't DIRECTLY relate to the Ranshi or the Harmonists. It may or may not make more sense as I profile Eyla Cire and then the Harmonists and/or Harmony...and then the Ranshi Empire and its members.

    Pretty much every writer likes to write the story as if a future reality was destroyed when the past/main timeline diverges from its history, but we know that the realities just diverge, and many seen later as divergent realities. Especially during the point of divergence, reality often seems to be in flux, with beings and/or worlds seemingly vanishing from existence, only to show up later.
    The Harmonists ship contained perhaps dozens of Harmonists, including Manuel and Eyla. Their fate since departing Earth is unrevealed. Those left behind on Harmony should be able to use their time probes to determine what happened at the point of divergence and contact them.

    It seems likely that the name Cire was based somewhat off of Shire...

Earth-22073 - Cable killed Randall Shire, martyring him and causing his religion, Harmony, to prosper; , technically advanced, worldwide peace, use in utero screening technique to eliminate mutation; Harmonists circa 4004 AD warred against divergent Earth -2775; reality diverged from -616 when Cable-616 defeated Shire without killing him and made his followers hate him
