It’s the year 2365; and religion has been outlawed across the world. The very existence of God was disproven as a result of the Great Revelation which took place in 2066 which then led to the catastrophic Great End in 2075, making everything once commonly known to be true about religion now long forgotten.
Sarutobi Mensah, arrives in the town of Taavah. His entire identity is unknown and it is unclear what his true intentions are, but his search for a particular man is pivotal to his mission despite the laws he must break to be within any chance of success.
His mysterious arrival in town is unwelcomed after being accused of impersonating Truth-Seekers – agents of an elite law enforcement bureau who tend to operate outside of the law without consequence. This attracts some unwarranted attention and Sarutobi finds himself in situations that threatens his safety as authority officers act on an official mandate for his arrest. Nevertheless, Sarutobi does not let this deter him from his mission.
Berahino Badu, a young famous magician, known throughout the country by the name Clark Bathwater, and locally as the town’s ‘bad boy’; lives a luxurious bachelor lifestyle. Berahino relishes more money than he can count, more women than he can remember, and loves a good drink – or three – but often wonders if there is more to life, and occasionally questions whether there is such a thing as purpose.
But a fateful altercation becomes the inception to a string of events that hurtles Berahino’s lifestyle into turmoil, as he is exposed to the truth that his ability is a God given gift and not the adept magical powers he was led to believe from his mentor who helped hone his skills to make him the man he was.
Conflicted in so many ways, Berahino joins Sarutobi on an unbelievable mission, where the beginnings of a nation-wide manhunt for them takes them across both the physical and spirit realms, as they bring the fight against the forces of darkness hidden behind the systems of their world.
