Defender of Texel has a rich lore which is told in three main ways: Normal Mode, which is narrated by Zar the Hand, comic stories in events, and literary stories in events. Each have provided different information on the story of the Exos' invasion, the culture and society of Texel and the defenders themselves.

Literary StorytellingEdit

On 6 January 2015 the developers of D.O.T. released a statement explaining the change in event structure to every second week, and also revealed that they would change the story format to short stories, rather than comics.

"On January 6, 2015, "D.O.T." will undergo a schedule and feature change. Events will last 1 week, alternating with 1 week of normal mode play. These 2015 events will not feature comics, skill previews and other notices, or premium builds. Items will continue to be available for sale in the store. Starting February 2015, the lore of "D.O.T." will be revealed through short stories--so stay tuned! Team Texel!"[1]

There was a hiatus at this point where The New Year Siege and Class Act events had no stories at all. The War Within was the first event with a literary story, and each event since had a text-based story up to the final event, Connect the Dots. Following the final event three more short stories were released.

These stories have been written as a series of vignettes, meaning that each story can be understood on its own and does not directly link to the next. Together these stories illuminate the reader on the culture of Texel and the state of Texel succeeding the exos' invasion. For example, The War Within and Tribal Pursuits show the hemi were treated as an underclass, and go on to compare that to modern Texelian standards where the hemi are considered equal, even if they still feel belittled.
