Meet the Gang
Our story begins in 2072 with our gang of four wandering the world, searching for answers. A decade ago, their native country of Sol, previously known as Bridger, was conquered by the Solana family through a coup during the summer solstice. Since the takeover, the nation has risen as the world’s lone superpower. Environmental destruction has dramatically increased from battles with neighboring countries. The nation’s strongest and brightest are kidnapped and forced to join the army. Even education has morphed into Sol-approved scriptures.
Hidden amongst societal decay, we find our group of protagonists managing trauma in their own unique way while searching for a way to feel whole.
Reia and her family were captured early on and became soldiers due to their reputation of martial arts mastery. Everyone eventually perished in war except for herself, her older brother and her younger brother Kai.
During a routine city takeover, Reia and Kai went AWOL and became fugitives at 13 and 11 respectively. For the next few years, they lived in abandoned houses with other fugitives, the occasional martial arts instructor, or wherever the wind took them.

Gumbo, who's real name is Beau, was dealt a bad hand from the start. He was raised in an abusive family with an alcoholic father. When he was 13, his hometown of Nebula City was conquered by the Sol brigade. During the attack, he was abandoned by his family and left for dead. In the years since, he's lived in forests, learning how to hunt and cook to survive. This lead to his nickname within the group as he's the only one who knows how to cook.
