Wade Parker is no stranger to loneliness and disappointment. His parents died at a young age in something everyone in Caesar City calls 'The Event.' The Verdant Knight is not just his origin story
as to how he becomes a hero, but also the inner dilemmas he faces as he realizes things are much stranger than he thought they were.

The End


Apology in advance- I don't know what's up with the formatting. Anyway, sometimes the beginning starts at The End. I think that can be ok.
Read Chapter

Day One


This takes place before the first chapter, where Wade has not yet become the Verdant Knight. This chapter goes into his backstory, and how and why he wants to be this heroic figure.
Read Chapter

Normalcy


What happens between exciting events? Normalcy.
Read Chapter

First Time For Everything


This is one of the first editions, please comment if you want the next chapter! Hopefully coming soon. Anyway, this chapter is about the Verdant Knight's first time as a superhero, and his
hilarious fails doing so. Enjoy!
Read Chapter

The Event


One of the first writings of The Event. This takes place before the rest of the story, and is used as more of a 'questions answered' portion for the main character to better understand why he does
things.
Read Chapter

Day Two


This chapter goes into a little bit more about Wade's life without the Verdant Knight, but, how it also intertwines with it.
Read Chapter

Mysterious Archer


This chapter goes back to The Event, and continues along that time as Wade meets someone he'll never forget.
Read Chapter

The Enemy


The Enemy follows Rob and Wade and friends in the aftermath of him being taken by Permafrost. It's a bit of a long chapter.
