Chapter 1: Familiarity
The Sanctuary of New Eden known for its belief in, Christianity, bustles with crowds of elated citizens and new unparalleled technology. Unfortunately, one event that hasn't changed is the birth of infected babies known as “Remnants”. Once the mother gives birth, the baby is inspected for any traces of the a mutagen known as "Remchar" (Rem-Car). If found the infant is disposed of outside New Eden’s walls and left for dead. Mana Ode-nashi was born and raised within the confined jubilance of the Sanctuary of New Eden. Her parents, the current Keepers of New Eden, hold both Mana and her older sister to a standard of exemplifying excellence; however, Mana is always handed abundance on a silver platter due to royal blood coursing through her veins. Mana is very aware of her status as being Princess of a desperate joy seeking congregation, yet she fills a jarring yearn to seek truth. Mana’s search for wisdom tends to arise attributable to the doubt of true world peace within her spirit. The aching thoughts subconsciously over encumber her focus every morning while meditating in her daily prayers. Could the unrequited thirst for the comfort of truth lead Mana astray from her regalian duties? She must tread carefully as those who overindulge in seeking, become its foolish prey.
