The 4 Gods ruled the elements….
Anix, The God of Fire
Raava, The Water goddess
Crosis, The Wind God
Dunia, The Earth goddess
The 4 Gods all lived together peacefully.
One day, idle, the Gods decided to create a new world.
Fascinated by the many versions of the human species, the Gods copied the DNA of humans and created their own versions of them to inhabit their newly created world.
Some humans were granted with a drop of power from each God, thus birthing a special race of humans known as Madokais. These “special” humans were granted the power to “Wield” any one of the four elements- Water, Earth, Wind and Fire.
Fascinated with their creation, the Gods thus created a “hybrid” version of human, called the Tenaris. The Tenaris were humans that contained the essence of any one of the Gods. Resembling fae, the Tenaris were equipped with pointed ears and were also granted the power of Wielding, however, due to them possessing the essence of the Gods, they were far more powerful than regular Wielders and were mostly feared.
Peace lasted for centuries until for unknown reasons, a war broke out between the Gods.
This war caused a tear between the Gods’ newly created world and the demon world, causing the two worlds to collide. To put an end to the Gods’ new world’s destruction, the Gods came together to stop them.
To seal the tear between the two worlds, the Gods intertwined their powers. The combining of powers caused a catastrophic chain reaction, and after the smoke cleared, a stone was formed. This stone was called The Dragtagon. Due to the stone’s immense power, the Gods decided to hide the stone away and to only reveal itself to the Chosen One, and once hidden, the Gods disappeared and were never seen again…..
Episode 1: Pilot
“Ven. It’s time to get up. You’re going to be late.”
Ven opens his eyes and sees his mother standing over him with her hands on her hips.
She’s such a cute thing. About 5’ 8” slender build, caramel skin with long curly black hair with speckles of gray; the poster child of aging like fine wine.
“You do this every morning. You would think that by now you would be used to going to school.” She whines. “Get. Up!”
“I’m up. I’m up.” Ven groans.
“Good. I have to go to work. Please be on time today. I left you some tamagoyaki to eat for breakfast and I made some fish cakes for you to eat for lunch. I hope you enjoy.”
“I always enjoy your cooking mom.”
His mother smiles.
She bends down to kiss his forehead.
“Listen. I know that you hate going to school. It’s rough. You’re a teenager and you’re “different” than the rest of them but… that’s what makes you special! Just remember that I love you. Just get through today. Besides! Tomorrow is your 16th birthday and I promised you that I would take you somewhere very special. Just get through today and tomorrow will be here before you know it! I do have to go so I will see you later tonight. I love you.”
His mother gets up and leaves and yells for him to lock the doors before he leaves for the day.
Ven groans and heads for the shower.
Meet Ven. A soon to be 16-year-old student at Ujiwama High. He stands about 5’ 8”, scrawny build, short black/ brown hair. He has caramel skin and hazel eyes.
He spends most of his time reading manga, playing video games, watching anime, staying in and spending time with his loving mother, Auroa. He’s the perfect kid except, there is just one problem with him.
He looks like an elf due to his pointed ears.
Ven arrives to school in a black hoodie and jeans and white Air Forces. He keeps the hoodie over his head in order to cover his ears but he knows it’s futile. The students at Ujiwama High have been making fun of him for as long as he could remember. He has been bullied and shunned since he was a child and has no friends. He has grown to accept the treatment that he receives from the others but he still longs for someone to at least understand him; someone besides his loving mother.
He sits at the back of every class and never says a word. Although he never says a word, he is highly intelligent and passes every exam with flying colors. It’s as if school is TOO easy for him. Because of his intelligence, he intimidates the other students, causing them to feel “inferior” to someone that is considered to be a “nerd”.
At lunch, he sits at his usual table.
In the corner.
Ven is sitting at his usual table eating the tamagoyaki that his mother made for him.
“Hey elf man. What are you eating for lunch today?” Jamie Tanaka says mockingly.
Jamie Tanaka- Popular, tall, handsome, asshole. Typical high school punk that hangs out with a group of mindless followers that will follow him to the ends of the Earth.
Ven says nothing as he continues to eat his lunch.
“He asked you a question.” Says PJ Yamamato, Jamie’s right-hand man.
Ven continues to ignore them.
Suddenly, Jamie snatches Ven’s lunch from his hands and throws it on the floor.
“Dogs are supposed to answer when their master says something to them!” Jamie says, as he grabs Ven by the collar. Jamie cocks his hand back as if he is about to punch Ven but right before he is about to do so, the guidance counselor, Mr. Agikama, appears right behind him and grabs Jamie by the ear.
“Now Mr. Tanaka! What seems to be the problem here?!!” Mr. Agikama asks.
Jamie lets go of Ven and grabs his ear.
“Ow! Ow! Ow! Stop!” He yells in pain.
“Ow! Ow! Ow! No! You and your sidekick are coming with me to my office.” Says Mr. Agikama. “PJ. Let’s go!”
Mr. Agikama drags both Jamie and PJ and as he drags them off, and Jamie mouths that he will see Ven later.
Embarrassed by this ordeal, Ven leaves the lunchroom and hides in the boy’s gym locker room for the rest of the day.
Once school ends, Ven heads home but takes the shortcut to avoid possibly running into Jamie and PJ. He cuts through the alleyway next to the school, hops the fence at the end of the street and ends up on a side street. As he walks, he suddenly feels a cold hand on his shoulder. He yelps and turns around but finds nobody behind him. He shrugs and continues to walk but then hears whispers. He turns around again and finds nobody there.
“I’m just paranoid. That’s all. It’s all in my head. I just need to make it home.” He mumbles to himself.
He continues to walk but there it is again. The whispers. He looks down and sees a shadow that isn’t his, following him.
Instinct kicks in so he begins to run.
He runs to the end of the street, making a sharp right and unexpectedly, slams right into Jamie and his friends outside of a ramen shop.
“Elf man! I was looking for you!” Jamie says excitedly. “You got me in trouble today. Now I have detention for the next two weeks. How should I repay you for this?”
Ven quickly gets up from the floor and backs away from Jamie and his gang.
“He’s going to run.” Mumbles one of Jamie’s friends.
Ven takes off running.
Jamie and his gang take off after him, running through the streets of Japan.
As Ven runs, he tries to think of a way to lose them.
The forest behind the city park.
He thinks to run through the city park, hop the fence and into the forest. He knows how to get home from there. He kicks into overdrive and runs faster. He zigs and zags and finally makes it to the park. He turns around to find nobody behind him.
Relieved, he takes a minute to stop and breathe.
“I lost them.” He says to himself as he huffs and puffs, attempting to catch his breath.
Suddenly, Ven face plants to the ground.
“You didn’t think that I would think that you would aim for the park huh? I knew exactly where you were headed so I decided to take a shortcut.” Says Jamie.
Ven rolls onto his back and sees Jamie and his gang surrounding him.
“You would think by now that you would just die. You’re not one of us.” Says PJ as he cracks his knuckles.
“It’s obvious that he’s not human. Look at him.” Comments another member of the gang.
“An abomination.” Jamie says as he smirks. “Let’s teach him a lesson that he won’t forget.”
Jamie and his gang surround Ven and beat him to a bloody pulp and leave him in the park.
It’s now 7pm and Ven has not made it home yet.
Auroa is pacing around her home with a glass of sake.
She has been calling and texting her son but he has not answered.
“He should’ve been home by now.” She whispers while pacing back and forth. “Dear Anix. Where is he?”
Suddenly, the front door swings open and Ven comes stumbling in. His nose is bloodied, his eye is swollen and his clothes have been dirtied and torn.
“WHAT HAPPENED?!” Exclaims Auroa, nearly dropping her glass of sake as she runs over to her son and tries to touch him but he smacks her hand away.
“You already KNOW!” Yells Ven right before he runs upstairs to his room and slams the door, leaving Auroa stunned downstairs.
Around 9pm, Auroa goes to knock on Ven’s bedroom door.
She calls him name but no answer. She tries to open the door but it’s locked.
“Ven. Please. Talk to me.” She pleads.
She then hears the handle juggle and the door opens.
She walks in the room to find Ven sitting on his bed looking utterly defeated.
She goes to sit next to him on the bed.
“Jamie?” She questions.
Ven nods his head.
“I don’t understand what his problem is with you. He’s been bothering you for years. You won’t even let me talk to his father. I should put an end to this now I-.”
“What’s the point.” Ven cuts her off.
“I don’t belong mom. I never have. I never will. Let’s stop pretending.”
“Let’s stop pretending what?”
“That I’m not different than everybody else!” Ven screams. “Look at me! Everyone looks normal except for me! It’s all because of these!” He points to his ears. “Let’s stop pretending that these are normal or that I will grow into them! Let’s stop acting as if everything is alright because it’s not! You wouldn’t understand mom because you look just like everyone else! I don’t!”
He begins to cry.
Auroa gets up and pulls her son in for a hug and lets him cry on her shoulder.
“You’re right. You are different. You just don’t know what that means.” She says. “It will all make sense to you tomorrow.”
Before Ven could ask her what she meant by that, she taps Ven on the neck and he falls asleep.
