We're still setting up and hopefully we'll get a site to display the soon-to-be-finished early comics, such as the Prelude and the beginning of "Chapter 1".
As of right now, only these members can post here, as they are involved in the creation/management of the comic:zairedwinterszerorevengezandorisazuremelody
The spriter/composer of the comic (as well as a another source of main ideas) is the younger brother of zairedwinters
. He does not have an LJ and would rather not get one.
To add some info, here's the beginning of the story, as told by zerorevenge
. Some names may have been made up at this time:Storyline:
Two childhood friends, Jeo and Clara are attacked by bandits in there hometown. After the wave of bandits is defeated, Clara's father - who is a very important man in the Holy Logos Church (I just made up the Holy Logos Church part now, I wasn't sure what to call it. We can always change it later)
- disappears. A mysterious man comes in, and assumes Clara's Father's role as head of the Church for their town. Soon after, the bandit attacks start becoming more frequent. Clara, knowing that something is amiss, goes to confront the impersonator. However before she has the chance to, she is attacked, only to be saved by Jeo. However, now that this Mysterious Man knows that Clara is on to her, he orders everyone and anyone close to her to be eliminated - but to make it sound himself seem better, he labels the two children as "Heretics of the Church", no one disagrees with the Mysterious Man at that point. Jeo grabs Clara, and both escape the town, with this Man's agents on their heels. To give Clara a greater chance of survival, he tells them to split up while he attracks the enemies to him. This is where the story starts...
Yeah, that's basically the Prolouge. Afterwards, the storyline focuses on Jeo, who is a Trainee Mercenary, while he tries to stay alive. Many of the Man's agents as well as bounty hunters come after him. Jeo later meets up with his long-lost brother, Zai, who has been looking for Jeo for the past few years. The two catch up on their past, as the storyline switches over to Clara.
Clara, who is still distrought over the loss of her Father, and childhood friend is living the life of a vagabond on the streets of a closeby city. This is where she meets up with Victor. Victor is traveling assassin, he roams from city to city, entering himself in the arenas to make his living. Victor, being an assassin must have had some dark memories about his past, but those are always to himself, he fears of what might happen to him if anyone learns of it. Victor helps clean up Clara, as well as making her his Arena Assistant (she doesn't fight, but she is always there with a towel for him, etc) Soon after, as Victor learns that this Arena tour is coming to a close (meaning he's going to have to leave) so he teaches the young maiden how to defend herself. At the end of this saga, Clara becomes a Trainee Soldier.
The stroyline goes back to Jeo and Zai, who have recently come into greater skirmishes with bounty hunters, and bandits. Soon after we return to the brotherly duo, they are introduced to the outlaw bounty hunter Rune. Rune, who was a Hero at one time, is now a bounty hunter, trying to get the 100,000 gold bounty on Jeo's head (100,000 if he's brought alive, only 10,000 if returned dead). The two (Rune and Jeo) fight once, but are soon interupted by the nearby town's guards, who come after Rune, making him retreat. Later he brings a small team of mercenraies with him to capture Jeo. The two fight again, with Zai coming to safe Jeo at the last moment before Rune deals a killing blow. The third and final time they meet, is a one-on-one. Rune knocks out Zai before making his move against Jeo. The cunning bounty hunter goes in for the same move that he's used to defeat Jeo the 2 previous times, but by now, Jeo has learned to counter it. Jeo finally counters against Rune's "critical strike" and disarms him. Rune, totally caught offguard is defeated by Jeo, as Jeo slices Rune diagnolly across the face, leaving Rune in a pile of his own blood.
The storyline continues with Jeo and Zai as they enter a nearby town, ironically the same town that Clara is in. Rune, who is still alive, however lost his left eye, stumbles into town. Clara comes to his aid, and nurses his wound. Rune, struck by this girl's kindness, begins to grow acustomed to her and starts treating her like a sister. He continues her training with swords until he feels that he's trained her as well as he can. The two share stories about their past, and Rune feels that it would be too unsafe for Clara to stay with him, so one night while she sleeps, Rune skips town, moving on trying to recover that bounty (which he NEVER tells Clara about).
