Many years ago the earth was uniform if its ideas of peace and order, the government was fair and crimes were minimal at worst, until disaster strikes. A coronal mass ejection from the Sun devastates the rotation of Earth, slowing it down and extending night and day time; this event also creates a new isotope of Silicon (S20 Tracsium) which absorbs kinetic energy responsible for the stall in the Earth’s rotation. This also devastated the citizens of East-Earth and as in a panic contact West-Earth for assistance but with nothing to exchange in return and the government fearing for their people’s safety there are left to burn in the light of the new day. With the pass of the first day, two thirds of East-Earths population burn to death, whereas only one fourth of west-Earths population are killed or harmed by the new heat wave to strike the planet. The remaining population of East-Earth retreat to the underground, angry and scattered with no way to unite together all seemed lost. On the first night people compline that of the cold above the surface but just beneath the surface there was an excess of warmth, people notice that the discarded phones had grown crystals and are glowing.
Those that come into contact with the crystals become strong and those who had been cut with the crystals had now gained abundant power.
Three years later West-Earth had built cities known as safe zones with heat shielding but they were struggling to keep the fluxes in temperature underneath control and with this looked for a solution by flying planes to East-Earth to look for signs of life. The planes never come back and with this West-Earth begin to panic as to what has developed on the East-Earth.
Shortly after the disappearances of the planes over East-Earth attack began on the cities closest to the East equator and then after a large amount of damage had been done. The strange forces retreat before only 3 months repeating the proses every 3 months. West-Earth defends to the best as they can but only manage to kill minute amounts of the enemy and identify them as supper beings. These people that are killed are only around the age of 19. They are taken and studied for the hope of finding ways to combat them further but as panic develops the government struggles to keep it people under control. The enemy is later identified with a name “Kinetasists”
As the attack becomes more violent and defensive proportions become greater people become more panicked and crime brakes out under the crippled government. Then as despair begins to set in a wealthy and mysterious business man begins to buy the government over promising control over the people and the government at this point gives in to the offer. With acceptance of the offer, a law enforcement division rolls out and brings crime to a new low standard by using fear. The new government image promises the people change and prosperity with their cooperation with their trust.
4 Years later the wall erected to protect the people are slowly being broken and despair begins to set in a new group of soldiers are prepared to the public under shadow as their saviours.
The public rejoices as within a matter of months the cities are lit with the spoils of war and the heroic push back of their proud nation. New technologies are discovered that change life and the once distant Tracsium is now used to power house hold generators off the radiation. The new solders push the other forces to nearly 48% of their original fighting force before one of the most powerful go rouge known as the reaction event.
This scatters all remaining super solders back to the western side of the globe where they attempt to regain memories needed, to survive and forget horrible experiences and lie underneath the trackers on their tails as well as other solders.
The year is now 2124, only 7 years after on the now industrially productive earth, mobilized for war at any moment, the now privately owned governments of West-Earth are in defence mode after losing their biggest assets now focus on defence rather than offence; life seems normal.
Kenji Pynchon is what he thinks a of as a normal 17 year old with an odd back story after his parents are “killed in a Tracsium processing explosion” he lives in fear of once again developing a tumour inside his brain and is home schooled by his older sister Hideko. Hideko is a medical student and an all-round prodigy at the early age of 20 and a master’s degree in the field of Tracsium medicine and bio engineering but given her education she finds it hard to find a job and they are running low on money.
Kenji develops depression and seeing this Hideko finds a relative good job and pays for him to attend school, his depression is put to an end when he acquirers two new friends Miki and Chrio. Everything is good until only 2 months into the school year when Kenji is walking Miki to the train stop and is attacked by a hooded figure. Miki’s neck is snapped after the stranger becomes frustrated with the insufficient information on the 20 super solders known as the Elite 20 and seeing this Kenji’s usually calm demeanour is broken.
He charges at the stranger when a bolt of electricity is let out from the tip of their finger tips and rushes towards him, he braces for impact and the bolt shifts to one side missing him by a slim margin. Again, another bolt is shot once again missing him slimly and he begins charging at the attacker once again. He pushes them down and goes to hit them when the hood concealing there face reveals that it is Chrio, confused Kenji starts screaming “Why!” at her before another electric shock blacks him out.
He then wakes to integration and it is revealed that Miki is really alive Kenji is a part of the Elite 20 soldiers and not only that but so are Miki and Chrio.
