All Hope is Lost; S01E01: Te De Raizes
A PLANNED MINI-SERIES.
Heavensent City was once a playground for delinquents with abilities and their battles with the powered law enforcers. It’s a city which has seen chaos and disorder. But Heavensent City never saw any terror before like when the city’s leading guardian, The Right Hand, loses his mind.
Across the bay, Dolores Raizes, an insurance sales person, passes off the destruction as another out of control battle. That is, until the battle strikes home, mortally wounding Raizes’ lover, Margot Sweet. Raizes sees The Right Hand, begging him for help, only to watch him fly away.
With the aid of the only surviving members of an organization called BLISS, a corporate funded powered person neutralization project, Raizes encounters her once friend, Lilith Graves. Along with her two companions, Graves helps Raizes and Margot out of the rubble.
At first, Raizes believes she’s being aided out of good will, but when Margot is kidnapped as Graves briefs Raizes, Raizes begins to question Graves’ intentions.
Elsewhere, a mysterious force called Clean Slate, some kind of networked being, unites every villain from Heavensent City in an effort to subdue The Right Hand and bend him to their will.
With no other option, Raizes teams up with Graves to rescue Margot, into the battlefield. Devoid of her powers of yesteryear, Raizes must rely on members of a once corrupt organization known as Bliss.
Things just get worse from there. As they try to figure out what is going on with The Right Hand and rescue Margot, Raizes can’t help but feel that all hope is lost.
Ethereal Vanity - We Are Legion
REVISED JUNE 2019
Hell has broken down faith and brought mankind to near extinction in what is known as the "War to Start All Wars". Demons now run the governments, hunting those with an ounce of belief in a higher power, as humans struggle to survive.
Gemini Morales, a teen from what was once Southern California, has fallen victim to the times, as he is possessed by a demon. Two priests from a post-Christian Church, known as Brothers, one being the actual brother of Gemini, they try to exorcise the demon. But, alas, Gemini's body has be ravaged by the possession to the point of being uninhabitable by a mortal soul. The demon in possession, Legion, he informs Gemini that without him, Gemini will die. Gemini, refusing to give up, makes a deal with the reluctant Legion that states Gemini keeps his mind and body, but Legion gets the soul.
As Gemini explains the deal with his brother, a possessed waitress kills Gemini's brother and nearly kills Gemini, if not for a rugged priest known simply as Father. Father is believed to be the last Catholic priest and he hunts demons with a scent for them. He can tell of Gemini's union with one. Father takes the boy in, understanding the loss and trauma.
Legion is visited by a mercenary demon known as Dante, whom is after the bounty on Legion, for Legion forged an application for possession, something the highly bureaucratic Hell has no tolerance for. Legion reasons with Dante, offering three disobedient Ethereal beings, known as Waywards, in exchange for his life, an offer that includes a large bounty reward. Dante agrees, giving Legion limited time to produce the Waywards. Legion informs Gemini.
Gemini explains his situation to Father, whom offers to help hunt the Waywards. Their journey brings them to Tijuana, Mexico, where they find a cantina still up and running. Legion tells Gemini that the barmaid is a Wayward and Father helps eliminate her.
Impressed with the efficiency of the assassination, Dante moves up the schedule and adds a new objective to the deal, seeing as how he practically owns Legion in the trade. The new parameters call for two Waywards and the Anti-Christ, Damian, assassinated in two hours. They are to be found in a hedonistic, carnage casino in Los Angeles. Dante offers them a short route there through an anomaly portal created by the falling of Angels.
With little time and the uncertainty the portal won't kill them, Father and Gemini trust in Legion to not only save Gemini's life by honoring the deal, but even saving the world from the Anti-Christ himself; the President of the United States!
