- XXXXXYou've always dreamed of having special abilities. Some call them powers, some gifts, and others abilities. To be able to do something no one else can do seems amazing, right? Or is it not so?
XXXXXThey're after us. Each and every one. They want to kill us off because we're different. They want to kill us because they're afraid. This is reality, not a dream but a nightmare. They're hunting us down as I write. Here is what happens. At birth, we were born with eyes of two different colors and with abilities that people became fearful of. The King is one of us, but he has the gift of persuasion. And since he wears an eye patch nobody can contest him anyways. He is greedy and power mad. We were the lucky ones. Our parents sent us off into the forest to live in a safe house we call "Home Base". There are others not as fortunate though. The ones who are not sent off in time are killed as infants when the King's 'doctors' come to see the newborns. Now we have to run and hide. Hide from those trying to round us up and kill us. The Kings' men.
XXXXXThere is a kingdom surrounded on three sides by forest, and one by sea. Strange things happen every now and again in this kingdom, later named Lithian. Every once in awhile a child is born with eyes of two different colors (ex. one blue, one green). They have special talents that are some what supernatural and it scares most of the villagers. Some of the parents of these children sent their newborns with older "Gifted" where they took them to grow up and live deep within the forest at Home Base. For awhile, the King thought he had eradicated the rest of the gifted children so he (and allegedly his two sons) were the only ones with supernatural abilities. In recent years he has found the truth and sends his militia to kill the newborns. Sometimes they don't get to the newborn fast enough though.
XXXXXThe gifted who have escaped to the forest have been named "The Wicked". Anyone who chooses to sympathize with the wicked and run off to Home Base are known as "Sympathizers". The King has sent two groups known as "The Legion" each headed by one of his sons to kill all the gifted and sympathizers. He will not stop until they are all dead, but will the gifted be able to rise up and overthrow his evil power before then?
