    • Synopsis
    • Humans scavenge a barren, wasted planet under the dictatorship of Griffin, a man who rose to power through his control of the water supply. Also under his rule: the enslaved Arid People -- the lower class, indistinguishable aside from their smooth, creaseless palms.
      The Arids, who elude capture living nomadically in tribes, mine the planet's most valuable resource-- Aradium-- an element that repels the planet's magnetic core so strongly that it floats above the planet's surface.
      Apart from both human and Arid tribes lives Hirokin, a human marked by a dark past. Having broken Griffin's law and married an Arid woman, he and his family-- wife Terra and son Nuran-- must live on the outskirts of this civilization, surviving off whatever Hirokin can manage to trade.
      As Terra begins to express her weariness of their solitary existence, their isolation is suddenly destroyed by the hum and approach of the Deacons, Griffin's elite army of hunters whose only mission is to harness the Arid people into slavery. Upon their transport-- a formidable ship held aloft by Aradium-- stands Kore, Griffin's head Deacon, and and a flood of hunters.
      Hirokin fights to save his family with his slingshot sword-- an elegant blade embedded with Aradium-- but all three are captured and dragged back to the Horde, the center of human civilization.
      At the Horde, Hirokin fights to the death in order to save Terra, but his best efforts are not enough to rescue her from their fate.
      Alone and left for dead in the vast desert, Hirokin finds shelter with Moss, an Arid tribe leader and head of the rebellion against Griffin. Moss and his daughter, Maren, nurture Hirokin back to health.
      Young but wise beyond her years, the love-struck Maren teaches Hirokin the philosophy and ways of her people, while Moss teaches him to use this new understanding to become a true warrior, a sword for the downtrodden people of Griffin's tyranny.
      Set upon vengeance for his family, Hirokin takes what he learns back to the Horde and faces Griffin. But with Maren and a small rebellion at his side, his vision finally becomes clear-- he realizes that he must fight for more than vengeance. He must fight for hope.
