Short Summary

Adam's a frustrated, introverted, misanthropic teenager who despises everyone around him except his mother. He struggles with every emotion, vowing a forced evolution upon humanity, until newcomer, Carly, catches a glimpse of his Limbal Ring, and reveals a history he'd only dreamed was possible.

When Adam finally learns the truth about himself, he teams up with Carly and others like them to eliminate the threat of extermination at the hands of The Iksha; an elite, but murderous group of militant scientists.

Development Pitch

The Scion Saga is a multi-layered, never-ending twist of possibilities. The series includes a veritable myriad of familial situations that create stronger bonds between the bloodlines as they band together to fight for their existence. The familial journey is forever moving forward in discovery, with a thick enthralling past to be unveiled in layers. Though it can easily be tied in with larger, more popular tropes (notably, Marvel's X-Men trope), it's a worthy standalone, given it's unique Limbal Ring arc. It'd be a lovely movie trilogy, but would have a larger impact as a series, given the story's multi-layered characters, their individual abilities, and backstories.
