The Ancient Laboratory was the sole birthplace of life created outside of Riverrise. In the First Age of Flight, Linius Pallitax attempted to create life there, just as the first scholars did- yet he succeed. He had created the Gloamglozer. Later, in the Third Age of Flight, Nate Quarter and his friends discovered, when Sanctaphrax returned, that the original Gloamglozer had been using the Ancient Laboratory to create more of its kind to rule Sanctaphrax and bring good citizens to their deaths. Ambris Hentadile destroyed the Ancient Laboratory with his Phraxpistol.
