Development Pitch

This story is about Weech's journey from a poster child to a rebel and finally as a father. Each assassin has different beliefs and all are driven by them. Weech is one of the most unique protagonists I've ever made. He is known for killing with hugs, a mercy kill of sorts, yet he commits some of the worst atrocities in the entire story. It is his detached nature that leads him to being chosen as the icon for the school. He gradually learns more about the schism between the Red Guild (traditional assassins that believe a sound mind is needed for the job) and the Black Guild (the new branch that turns assassins into other-worldly beings of madness called RiftRippers) and this challenges his entire ideology. The story changes drastically after the true final exam and we get to see how these RiftRippers think and view the world from Weech's perspective. I also tried something new with having his present self comment occasionally about the decisions he made in the past. This story is a true passion project of mine and I hope you will consider bringing it to a new audience with me! I have written over a dozen books with colorful and psychologically rich characters. I have also worked with several artists on turning my books into ongoing comic series. My style is mostly anime-esque, but my spin off books have a broader feel to them. This book is rather large and has three parts, each one long enough for a season or a movie. Please look over my works at sphereofcompassion.com.
