Lord of Columbia
Episode I: Northern Knights
If you mess with someone Cain Riscattare cares for, he’s terminating your life.
And he doesn’t give a damn who you are, even if you work for the Southpoint Empire.
Twenty years ago, Southpoint overran the Columbian Colonies, culminating in a nuclear strike that ended the war. Cain was a toddler and a survivor. Fast-forward two decades and this windbender slash college athlete takes a trip into the South Columbian Inlands, where imperial soldiers harass, arrest, and execute the politically unreliable.
Politically unreliable as in possessing the ability to control the classical elements yet refuse to sleep with Southpoint.
Did those soldiers think Cain was going to tolerate them rounding up college-aged kids for a military draft to fight a war in some distant land?
Hell no! Instead of trying to arrest him, they should’ve surrendered their arms. But then again, Cain would’ve smiled and engulfed them in a manmade tornado. Hey, when you enforce unjust laws on an innocent public, you deserve permanent job termination. At least that’s Cain’s thought process.
Want to add fuel to a growing fire?
Cain regularly dissents South Columbia to attend college in free, prosperous North Columbia, a land that has staved off the Southpoint advance for two decades. Since he ignited a revolution, Southpoint Supreme Leader Adam Syndari wants him dead and will burn down the entire colony to do so.
Yeah, this college athlete is focusing on more than sports this semester. Hell, he just put an entire region in danger.
Cain just wanted to return to school, play ball, and after two more semesters, move on with his life. But fate had other ideas.
