Character Spotlight: Elza

In a world adopted by those who have escaped war, it is impossible to avoid being influenced by beings of great power. Meet Elza Zakarian, mother, soldier, and once a respected member of the Generals. As one who survived a war, she only turned to it for change when she saw the harm her kind’s presence was having on humanity.

However, not everyone was on board for relinquishing their status and the event known as the Great Divide came to pass. She is a survivor in exile. All who hear her name stay clear. Still, the direction the world is headed will make certain her path crosses with the Generals again. Though whether that is as friend or foe is yet to be determined.

In a time of peace and prosperity, the world has come to terms with the powers that rule. Twelve Generals with a common origin guide humanity towards a future away from war and needless conquest. Their desire to live a life separate from what brought them to Earth has led to many early advancements. Still, violence is in their DNA and the peace they’ve created may only be temporary. Arrogance and privilege run rampant in their ranks, and humanity has lost its independence to the beings they see as gods. This is the story of three women who must come to terms with the world they helped create. It is their action and their influence that will shape the future. They will be defined by the choices they make, and the consequences of their actions are destined to last a lifetime.
