Children of Rima
ARE WE INHERENTLY EVIL?
When a celestial being named Rima saved the world, she did not return to the heavens. Instead, she blessed her followers with supernatural abilities. Men were given unique traits, and women were able to cast away corruption and darkness. Over the centuries, these people became known as children of Rima. But after the Holy City, Aelith fell, Mercenary Lucan long had to carry the trauma of witnessing it. For years, he and his best friends must work for any king or lord to fill their bellies. Tired of the cycle, a murder attempt sends Lucan adrift to a Rima village. There, he finds himself bumping heads with the village’s shunned, non-believer, Elene. To return to his friends, Elene and her brother agree to help Lucan find them. Meanwhile, Lucan hides his true powers from the village. But when he finds one of Rima’s children corrupted, it’s up to Lucan to find out the cause. After all, he is Rima’s sole descendant.
