Adroit Comics, Capital City, New Sienna

The year is 3073 in a land not so different from our own. The world of Nu’ZarEil is on the brink of another Great War. For decades The World Alliance has seemingly been on one accord to promote peace and cooperative work amongst its members. However, as is often the case, some parties would benefit themselves rather than the greater good of all. To people like this, personal gain is the greatest good.

The Great War of 3033 changed the political boundaries of the entire plane, with the most powerful nations claiming territories worldwide. When this happened, many of the now-conquered territories prayed and planned for the day when they would fight for their independence. For many of these people, that day has arrived.
The Royals of New Sienna have territories worldwide, on top of the districts they have claimed as their own over the centuries. Many New Sienna citizens, and the world, for that matter, question the Royal families’ entitlement to their rule. The Royals’ position of rulership has always been a source of contention, especially with the ancestors of the original ruling family. They would say that these so-called royals have no authority whatsoever.
The Federation of The Royal Indigenous Clan was founded by Monroe Salamalan to establish the rightful rulership of the tribe of Salamalan. The FRIC’s position is that the modern royal families usurped the throne from his family’s ancestors in an illegal and highly unethical fashion. Their goal is to see the Salamalan family reinstated as the true rulers of New Sienna.
Most citizens of New Sienna are unmoved by FRIC’s fight. Everyone is worried about the possibility of a second Great War. The casualties from The Great War were tremendous, and it’s not as though that was the last war on record to take the lives of soldiers and civilians alike. However, the youth of New Sienna is adamantly against this war, and they are protesting across the nation.
The Youth Party of New Sienna has rallied together, taking up the banner to speak for the young citizens who seemingly have no voice. They have made their position clear, “No Draft! No War! No more innocent lives lost.” “How can the lives of this great nation’s youth be pledged to give their lives in a war launched by the elders? Is this fair? Is this right?”
The rumbles of war are shaking up the world. The Nation of New Sienna is brewing with unrest, and its Capital City is no exception. The metropolis of Capital City is bright, shiny, big, and exciting. Everything anyone could ever look for in a city. Including all of the ills that ail huge populations crammed into small areas of land. With a population of over 8.3 Million, trouble is definitely on the rise.
What was once a simple settlement of Indigenous farmers and fishermen has now become one of the largest cities in the world. And it certainly has not been spared from all the troubles that come with such a distinction.
Criminals are thriving. Crooked politicians are manipulating the masses. The dissension of the citizens is growing and growing with each new day. The good people of the city have been working and praying to see a change in their hometown. Little do they know, their prayers have been heard by The Heavens above.
As of late, another phenomenon is appearing in Capital City: super-powered humans, also known as Adroits. For centuries there have been legends of people with special powers granted by Divinity to protect the world from darkness. However, most modern society has brushed those stories off as nothing but fantasy or fairy tales. But soon and very soon, all truth will be revealed. . .
