Development Pitch

LUKAS REID (16), a druid boy who loses his faith after the death of his parents. He wants vengeance, as he learns to control his powers, but what he needs is the understanding that though he turned his back on the Goddess, she never gave up on him. If he fails his quest, an ancient demon, Belial, will kill all life on Earth. Lukas learns to control his untrained powers from Theo Deville, a secret antagonist-twist character. When it comes time to fight Belial, Lukas Learns that his teacher is the Devil Himself and though he has prepared the boy to fight, he is also after his soul. Human-demon hybrids run amock, as Lukas defeats two greater demons. Near the end, with the help of some familiar ghosts and the Goddess, Lukas triumphs, but at the personal cost of his sight. In the epilogue, Lukas and Sabine, present their sons to the Goddess and to their ghostly guardians.
