Fabula Imperium (Story of Power)
Author's note: This is an idea that I've been kicking around for a while. I hope you get a few laughs out of it, at least.
PriusPrius (Chapter 1/Prologue)
This is a story of fire and ice, of light and darkness, of water and lightning. You ever heard the saying, ‘Knowledge is power’? Well, I’ve got a lot more than knowledge.
My father died when I was little, so I had to grow up as the leader of the household. I developed a façade of cheerfulness, while on the inside I was hollow with grief. I eventually came to terms with his death, but I would never forgive those who caused it. Abraham Lincoln once said, ‘If you want to test a man’s character, give him power’. Let’s just say that my character is about to be tested.
However, as you read this story, I think you’ll find that there are some forces in the world that should not be disturbed. My name is Arcus Wheeler.
And I’m an Imperial.
