The Plot

Summer 2017

Believing he could harness energy directly from the Sun, Professor Francis Kane destroys his career at the National Academy of Science when he claims he will travel back in time to prevent one of the biggest tragedies in American history -- The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln

In order to finance his expedition, Professor Kane cuts a deal with a criminal syndicate known as The Circle, an elite cult of thrillseekers who plan to use time travel to solidify their domination of the world.

Branded a criminal and pursued by the government, The Professor successfully travels through time, literally landing in front of Ford's Theater with a mere five minutes to change history.  

Arrested while trying to save the President, Lincoln still falls, and history continues on its common course, while Professor Kane is forgotten and left to rot to death in an insane asylum.............until he's miraculously rescued by MAJESTY, a beautiful Amazonian warlord who takes him on the journey of a lifetime.

Mysteriously, he awakens in a brothel in New York on a brisk winter evening in 1860, the same night where a then unknown Abraham Lincoln arrives in the city to make the speech that will eventually make him President.

While only previously having 5 minutes to save the life of Lincoln, Professor Kane now has a 5 year head start.

Seduced by Majesty and her world of endless sin, he is renamed FARO and helps her build a profiteers' paradise while the Civil War tears America apart.

At the height of their love affair, Faro is recruited to join The Circle, where he will begin his destiny as an eternal warlord.

For his initiation, his mission is simple,

Murder Abraham Lincoln before Gettysburg, destroy the Union for good and allow slavery to reign across their new Empire with New York as their kingdom.
