So we begin on a starry night by a campfire. A young man named ADAM has arrived after days of travelling. Once a year since he was a child, Adam has met with the old hermit who lives on the mountain in hopes that he will finally hear the story of his father’s murder.
The hermit’s name is MALIK. He has promised Adam that he will one day tell the boy about his father’s killer, the mysterious SID. But every year, Malik decides Adam’s still not ready, and sends him home.
After a bit of humming and hawing, Malik gives in, puts out the fire, and takes adam under his wing.
We flash back 22 years where we learn that Malik was once a buttoned-down corporate stooge. He spent nearly 40 years of his life working for a company known as PLANETFALL under strict watch from the dogmatic, uncompromising government known only as the NATION. One day, though, our man decides he has had enough. He grabs a bunch of company secrets and releases them to the world.
Not surprisingly, within hours of his stunt he is apprehended by the Nation’s very own Police/Military/Propaganda Machine, the AUTHORITY and taken to an unnamed prison facility.
