    An image from a Christian Fundamentalist Rally in Nashville Tennessee following a wave of sightings of the Kaiju across the world. These too would become a common sight worldwide.

    The fossilized remains of a snake like mammalian creature found in the Alps, currently in Monarch’s collection. The species, dubbed the ‘Tatzelwum’ after local legends, is thought to have first appeared during the primordial age of the Titans and may share some ancestry with the Skullcrawlers. It survived in Europe until at least the Middle Ages where it was believed to have been wiped out by human encouruhmeant on their territory. However given the habit of such creatures to hibernate deep underground until more subtable conditions arise, it is still considered to be a potential low level hazard by Monarch threat analysis.

    The homeless camp Moses in San Francisco, currently numbering 289 in 2019, primarily composed of african-americans and latinos. The photo was taken in 2017 as part of the National Geographic article "Left Behind in the Dust: Homelessness in the wake of the MUTOs"

    Two groups of fishermen illegally go into the territory of Leviathan in the North Sea on the boats Molly Bae and the Fìor Chridhe. Following the Titanomachy, the EU decided to restrict fishing in order to let titans like Godzilla, Leviathan and Sheshanaga (sometimes known as Kraken or Adamastor) feed on them and reduce risks of future attacks on humans. This has understandably led to a massive backlash from many communities that rely on the fishing industries to sustain themselves. The fishermen later vanished without a trace but for some oil patches.

    Two weeks after Leviathan presumably ate the boa, this mass of undigested flesh, shed gastrointestinal filaments, mucus, other acids, and microbes washed up on the shores of northern Spain. It became a minor tourist draw before police confiscated it and handed it over to France's Ministère de l'Agriculture where Monarch in turn took it in. Disturbingly enough, subsequent analysis found metal and human bone tissue were in the mass, confirming Leviathan had downed and ate them.

    On the coast of South Africa, hundreds of jellyfish wash up on shore. These are the spawn of Erumia, a massive jellyfish titan of Papua New Guinea. She is revered by the people of Mawata as a good omen and guardian spirit, gives some of her offspring to them and drives fish inland as food and protect them from threats such as sharks, crocodiles, and storms; in exchange, the villagers give titan food to her and help remove parasites. Anthropologists from both Monarch and Duke University have discovered many other cultures across Polynesia and even those as far as Madagascar and Ecuador. Many of these ephyra have been harvested by local fishermen for food, and pretty much every animal in the sea is eating them, helping fish stocks regrow.

    The british clipper ship the Gethsemane. According to one account, jesuits arrived in Mawata on the ship in 1927 to convert the natives to christianity, led by one Father Dominic O'Shea. After a month, over 25 villagers were converted, but during a resupply trip to Australia, the boat was attacked by a massive creature whose tentacle wrapped tightly around the boat and sunk. One member, Leonard MaGonnall, claimed Erumia actually spoke to the mission through Father O'Shea by shoving its tentacles into a wound, telling them to leave the people of Mawata and their traditional rites alone or else the spirits of New Guinea would rise up and destroy them. The twenty-five people were announce dead a few days later.

    In rural Germany, a field of a unique horsetail-related plants known as Vesklia (or alternatively Hüchengräuter, after their resemblance to cannabis) grows in the path of Methuselah. The plants's leaves and roots are rich in amino acids, and both farmers and the government have looked into cultivate the plant as a superfood.
