Beneath Black Blood (Halted)

The year is 2408, due to nuclear warfare and increased global warming the Earth is now a desolate wasteland compared to the world we live in today. The population is only 1 billion, well that is if you are counting humans. After the world began to crumble the mythical creatures that we thought were fiction came out of hiding. Humans are no longer the dominant race and are struggling to survive.

The story follows the eternally young immortal boy, Mex Cillian, who wakes up with amnesia one day after an accident, and finds himself in the middle of this war between humans and the magical. ©

Momentarily halted (Will continue in the summer)

  • The human federation alliance: a.k.a HFA, similiar to IGO’s like NATO or the UN- formed in 2200 after Nuclear warfare devastated the USA and 3/4 of the world leading to a desperate need for greater cooperation between humans.
  • Syndicate: The name for the Army. They are the armed forces used by the Capital, based in Human Zone 1, former New York.
