Lemuria is one of the oldest surviving civilizations.
Lemuria was apparently the only continent where modern man dwelt half a million years ago.
During the Pre-Cataclysmic Age (from about 100,000 until the Great Cataclysm), Lemuria remained one of the great continents of its era, and was ruled mostly by the Deviants and their human slaves.
After the Great Cataclysm, Lemuria was partly retrofitted by the Deviants, while other parts later became the home of the underwater race known as the Lemurians. Lemuria was founded by a splinter group of Homo mermanus who made their way to the Pacific Ocean whereas Atlantis had been in the Atlantic.
The Lemurians were surface-dwellers, that ruled the surface, while Atlantis ruled the seas, as dictated by their treaty, which was law, for nine millenia. They used the Atlantean city of Sestanivor as an embassy. As such, it had rooms for oxygen breathers. To protect its citizens, the city had a cordon of telepathic beacons to ward off deep sea predators. The city was the site of nesting for the Tan-Ed-Drul - the species the lead to the fall of the Atlantean empire.
