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.
