What most humans do not realise is that there are many more sapient species in our Solar system than just Homo sapiens
. The Pie created the Earth to be it's cradle of life but decided to make the nearby planet Mars it's spiritual home and that of it's servants. Over thousands of years Mars has developed into a thriving nation with a lobster majority and significant numbers of fatlings, droids and pugs. Nevertheless, Mars' population is dwarfed by that of the humans on Earth, who make up the bulk of the souls in our universe.
All sapient beings are trapped in a cycle of birth, death and rebirth... most souls live an average at best life with no knowledge of our crust and therefore are destined to be reborn again as a human. Only those who live an exceptional life are granted the gift of being reborn as a higher race such as a lobster or a fatling. They will then live a long life on either Mars or one of the Kingdom's colonies on Earth and upon death, if they have served the Pie nobly they will be rewarded by being made a spirit. Those of a great stature can skip this step and become a spirit without prior knowledge of the Pie... but this is very rare.
Through our JoJo though, a new path has opened to spirithood. Any human who pledges him or herself to the holy Pie and lives nobly shall upon death receive the crown of life and become an immortal spirit, with many powers detailed later on this page.
