The Rivals, also known as the Aeon Rivals, are a team of Characters in Aeon that help defend Earth2 from Celestians. Champ is the founder and actively recruits anyone interested in defending Earth2. Their name comes from the fact that its members are part of a rare group of fighters whose strength can rival that of a Celestian.
Fighting in battles earns the team Victory Points (VP). At the end of each month, a Victory Bundle is given out the member with the most VP.
Champ first decided to form the Rivals when the dimensional attacks began. Invading Celestians began visiting Earth2 via dimensional portals. Champ first worked to create a tracking system for the monsters and then created Gateway Portals to quickly warp to intercept Celestian attacks.
The Rivals are currently accepting anyone that volunteers their strength. There are at present five members.
