The Cataclysm refers to an event that shook and wrenched the Sea floor around Rebma City and environs, and is known to have been brought on by the breaking of the Rebma Pattern. Prince Caine is widely blamed and reviled for this. Any extenuating circumstances surrounding the Pattern are unknown to the Rebman public. With the staggering death toll, it is unlikely any explanation will excuse his actions, in Rebman eyes.
