Tidal of Chronos refers to sudden outburst of tidal force that occurred in the same time as the Seventh Tiara Conference – a conference to end the Seventh Great Moe War. The huge tidal force was originally a normal tidal force, possessed by Super Massive Black Hole 001 code name: Seitokai
. The reason of the sudden outburst was (and is) unknown, since the outburst itself was already against the known law of physics
. Nevertheless, space-dimension of the Stella galaxy was getting ruptured pretty badly
, endangering the existence of the galaxy itself. In response to this new threat, the conference was postponed. Tiara-bearers gathered to face this new “enemy” while forces of each faction quickly retreated and evacuated what can still be evacuated. Lightning Commander Fate, President of HnG Combine Hinagiku, Wing Commander Mio, Techno-Commander Misaka, Councilor Kanade “Tenshi”, Hierophant Ruri, and Flame Efreet Kotori set out into the Super Massive Black Hole.
What happened afterward is unknown. There are only two sources from which we can guess what really happened. The first is a log of the last communication, believed to be sent by Tenshi, tiara-bearer of the Fifth Great Moe War, to a certain person whose identity is still unknown.

The second was the supposed
testimony of Flame Efreet Kotori, the last surviving Tiara-bearer (see footnote.)
The effect of Tidal of Chronos was massive to the Stella galaxy. Not only it destroyed at least 30% of Stella galaxy, it also changes a part of the law of physics, as an odd phenomenon started to happen frequently
in space, similar to a blizzard but instead of snow, it was magnetic force that slows or even stops the movement of space ships and disrupt the natural cycle of all planets with thinner atmosphere. This phenomenon was later called ‘Space Winter’. And this new phenomenon is rough, as it hindered trade and caused starvations and draught to less technologically-developed planets and colonies. These starvation and drought were known as ‘The Drought’.
Another effect was the appearance of a huge space hole, believed to be connected to another, new, unexplored galaxy. It opened up in the sector where the legendary event took place. The faction, in exception of KyoAni Empire whom had sent a small fleet of researcher and explorer, had not dared to venture into this hole, in fear of political breakdown.
Its social and political effect was also huge. The loss of all tiara-bearers in exception of Flame Efreet Kotori has caused great turmoil amongst the faction. Politics were unstable and anything could have happened – from changes in leadership to a total chaos in a faction. Knowing anything can happened, the leaders of the factions decided to put their heads together in the wish to maintain order. This great meeting was known as the 'Saimoe Moot'.
: The Super Massive Black Hole Seitokai is the super massive black hole of Stella galaxy, located in the center of the galaxy.
: in a normal state, unlike ‘normal’ Stellar black holes, super massive black hole’s tidal force’ space-dimension spaghettification only occurs when an object is really deep inside the super massive black hole.
: it is later believed that whatever got sucked into the black hole got sent into another dimension where another time occurs. As such, it is called Tidal of Chronos, Tidal of Time.
: The testimony is believed to have never existed in the first place, since Flame Efreet Kotori has chosen to remain silent about the event ever since. The silence has brought about rumors on what actually happened: from Kotori was thrown away from inside the black hole by other tiara-bearers so that she continues the existence of the galaxy, to it was Kotori whom actually threw all the other tiara-bearers inside the black hole and killed them. There is no single clarification from any faction either regarding this matter.
: it was predicted by scientists that this phenomenon would happen for around 3-5 months a year for at least the next 1,000 years.
