 As The World Around Me Falls


"They were said to come out of the darkness, with their suits and their guns. They stole kids away from their homes, tore me from everything they knew, from everyone they loved. My parents tried to tell me that this was God's will. That he had created O.C.T.E.A and that they would help stop the overpopulation on Earth... But now, when it was my turn to be dragged out of my bed and through the door, my mind wandered to blasphemous thoughts.What kind of God would let this happen..."



Book Synopsis :

"Sometime in the not to distant future, the world is being consumed by overpopulation. The world's resources are running out faster than we had anticipated. Scientists have mapped out how long we all have to live, and with the numbers that we've been hearing on the news...we only have a couple of years left. A few months later a govermentally funded corperation known as O.C.T.A.E. started to look for ways to stop the problem. A few months ago they said they found a solution in gathering up all the kids attempting to remove their need to eat regular foods. To instead be able to keep the human body functioning on liquids and energy kits made by the company. This in turn was supposed to allow us to grow more food and give us enough time to make enough for the future if we needed it. It seemed like a good idea, I mean after all they were helping...weren't they? At least that's what we thought until the doors to O.C.T.E.A were broken down and those...things that came out...were not the people that had gone in. They were something else entirely."



 Celleste Parel, 16

The kind of girl you would like to be friends with, right? Maybe not Celleste. A cute exterior can hide the darkest secrets within. With an attitude sharper than a knife that has been all she has had to survive with, Celleste has hardened herself to the lowest rungs of her society. In her world where laws mean nothing, all Celleste knows is that trading is key, and she can trade anything and everything, including identities. Abandoned and outcasted, Celleste has more to hide than most others, including strange behaviour no one else can understand.... Would you dare be friends with a problem girl like Celleste?

Sention, ????

A boy belonging to O.C.T.E.A found in the deepest shadows of their secrets. He has been connected to their projects for longer than the most senior member can even remember, yet no one seems to know a thing about him or his capabilities...Including what he even is. Years in the dark have pushed Sention away from his pride and made him reject himself, making him completely unpredictable. If you want to gain his trust you have to earn it, preferably by bringing him scraps of cloth and a lock of hair. 



Legend Fullbright , 17

Legend is an optimistic boy, raised on the hopeful spirits of both his parents to never give up, he has that smile that lights up the room. He always tries to see the best in people almost to a fault, and will always try and find a peaceful solution to get through an argument. His father is a spiritual leader in the Skids and because of that he has a very faithful and loyal spiritual connection that ultimately drives his decisions and faith. But deep down inside Legend is harboring a secret himself one that he knows would make his family hate him and one that questions all his beliefs.



Vita, Unknown


Vincent von Heidegger a.ka. The Sleeper.

An ex assistant to Dr.Rigor Mortis, Vincent was supposed to be labelled as an undesirable and thrown into the next batch before the great collaps. He has a very unique style, which is basically thathe will sleep through most of the missions rather than do the heavy lifting, but when the time comes he more than rises to the occassion. His motto is 'I have to perserve my fuel for when I need it the most'.


Dr. Roger Prioritas Mortimer a.k.a 'Rigor Mortis'.

He is as ruthless as his name would suggest. A brilliant mind and a rare survivor of the  O.C.T.A.E. collapse he now runs a seperate and shady organisation called 'The installers'. Nobody knows his real motifs, but many have guessed them to be rather questionable. His infatuation with dead bodies is only matched by his love for chess and army ants. Since an experiment left his body nearly crippled, he has a huge body guard called Solenheim who takes him everywehre in a wheelchair. A cunning force with a serpents rongue and a charming personality
