In a world of Light and Dark, there is very little room for gray areas. You are righteous or a sinner, you are good or you are evil...you are an Angel or you are a Demon. Once upon a time the two were one and the same. But with Lucifer's fall the split in Heaven made two worlds of stark contrasts.
Forever at odds and never meant to mingle, Angels and Demons are supposed to be above and beyond the silliness of the heart. Knowing their duties are paramount to maintaining the balance of the world, one protects and saves, the other corrupts and destroys. An unfathomable dance that will come to an end when the very walls of reality crumble and the final conflict for existence comes to fruition. Destined to fight and die upon the slopes of Megiddo for the lasting control of life and death...space and time. The End all, be all for all life on earth and beyone. But as there is Lucifer and God at far ends of the spectrum there is a third force in the middle that is often overlooked or claimed by either being and that is Fate.
Fate is the referee for the end times, she is neutrality incarnate and the one who observes and maintains the balance between the Light and the Dark. No matter who wins she will continue on, but sometimes...just sometimes...she inserts her hand into the ways of the world pushing certain buttons and pulling certain strings for a desired effect. And this time it's centered around two simple creatures, neither a grand part of the Divine Mechanism.
Abigail (van Hellen), a young Guardian Angel in training being sent to Earth to earn her final rites before she is granted her silver wings and is tasked with guarding a newborn human. Young and inexperienced, but far from naive she knows the importance of her role in the Kingdom of Heaven and is dedicated to earning her wings. But the reality of humanity is quite the shock for an Angel seeing all the dirt and blood for the first time.
And her partner in this Divine Tragedy? Liminal Manchester, a Crossroads Demon wandering the Earth tempting souls with boons and deals that can change their lives forever. Becoming a millionaire overnight? Done. Being made into a Hero or even a King? Done. Anything is possible for a Crossroad Demon, but every deal comes with a price. And that is always too high for anyone to pay. Your soul or the soul of another, and if you don't pay? Well they always pay either on their own or after being dragged into Hell in the fiery jaws of a Hellhound at the command of the Elder Demons known as Keepers. The Seven Deadly Sins and the Captains of Lucifer's Infernal Army. Lim is just a middleman looking out for his own hide, because if a Deal goes sour it's him that'll pay. A few millennia on a Tormentor's Rack is a great motivator for keeping your quota high.
These two young lovers will find themselves at the foreground of Fate's interference in the cosmic opera. Simply pawns in the biggest chess game of all time...and as we all know...pawns rarely survive a chess game. Join us for one of the oldest stories of all time...star-crossed lovers who find themselves trapped in the throes of love and loss.
