Character Bios & Art

They are the walking wounded, America’s seedlings, the old world haunting them on the gritty streets of industrial New York. The warriors who fought to give us a chance at a better life, for we are the dream of our nascient ancestors, the bearers of our milk and honey. Though not everyone can survive the blood feuds and gang wars, they will forever be in our hearts as the huddled masses who ran from famine, genocide, war. And who dared fight for a better future, while chanting the subtle prayer: Fertile Hope Springs from Despair.
