Chapter One: Traitors

This world is shallow, I’ve been in it for 20 years and not once have I been intrigued by anything it has to offer. Being a noble didn’t spoil me, I am aware of everything that surrounds me because that is the only reason why I survived. The Visilios family which I’m from, sadly not Royalty; we are known for our assistance in the great war that took place a hundred years back where my great, great grandfather, Vendini Visilios, had helped the now Royal family, the Spargos’. Vendini helped establish the kingdom of Rados alongside his best friend, known as the Revolutionary Darius Spargos, who led the revolution that put me in this place today.
