Volume 1 of the final panel in the Delphos triptych.
Before it was Delphos, the world known as Arcadia was a frontier planet, only opened for colonization a few dozens of decades previous.
Amid its trunks there is a kindle glowing, a flare of conflict, of strife, of war; and within its glades another glow, the kindling of hearts together.
Beneath the canopy the Resistance battles the Academy of Protection, reviled by the very civilians it defends, and drug-damaged prostitutes do anything -- with anyone -- to feed their addictions.
A boy comes of age as he discovers the terrible secret that is eating the heart of his closest friend, learning the meaning of responsibility, loyalty -- and sacrifice.
Hidden in the leaves, triumphs and tragedies play and Arcadia, slowly, begins to burn.
