The Forsaken

 

Five characters bound by fate to endure, struggle and strive towards an ultimate end.

It is now as it has been since the beginning of time a continuous resonance with life itself.

Yet the resonance disturbed, ill-fated by the counsel of the wretched.

Only in the innocent can truth be found.

Thereby beauty unfolds itself.

For truth is the only beauty that can manifest itself in the hearts

of men as the guiding moral of complete resonance with himself and the ones around him.

Five characters faced with an inexcusable act of disobedience forced upon them by higher orders, by higher decrees.
