The stars are gone. My planet is dying. The Empress has taken our sunlight, and the Gods have abandoned us. My mother has given me the only food we have left and the medicine won't last... She's going to die. My little brother starved to death, my father is fuel for the maggots that already crawl towards her even as she still breathes. We aren't getting out of this.
Mother has passed. She asked that I stay alive, eat her if I must. I don't know if I can. Solaris, why do you not hear my prayers?
A man has come on a ship. He says he is part of a Resistance against the Empire. If we follow him, he will give us food and protection. Not many believed him.
He gave us all new names, so we can leave the pain of our old names behind, or so he says. He named me Starchaser. We gave mother and father a proper fire, so that their souls may be reborn somewhere better. The man says I'll get along fine with the other kids my age in the resistance. I hope he's right.

Two boys. An empire built upon fear and mind control. A resistance whose only focus is to take down the tyrannical Empress, the Single Minded responsible for the control of the hive mind known only as the One Empire. A destiny they could not expect would be theirs.
Those are the memory logs of the boy known to all as DuskBreaker. Before the legend, before he achieved greatness. When he was only a boy looking to save his people.
