The Alignment, a specific time in Earth's history when it plays a pivotal role in its own evolution and that of the Universe, has passed, and Maddy's role as part of the Sentient Shield was crucial in allowing it to take place and defeating the Halqu. As a central character symbolizing the awakening of spiritual consciousness, Maddy represents the power within us all.
