A man's name is important and Salip Pulaco has more than one. He's been called a pirate, a savage, a fool, and sometimes a hero, but a changed man? 

Now, that one is still up for debate...
      
Feared by his enemies and loved by his people, Pulaco must find away to protect not only his family, but also his own chiefdom as his enemies descend towards him. 

They range from an ambitious rival datu, a fleet of Conquistadors with enough fire power to burn down his village, an arrogant and spiteful princeling, an undeserving Regent, and many more. 

While his allies include a mysterious headhunter, a hot-head brother-in-law and a mixed-bag of warriors.
      
This is a story of one's Identity, one's Legacy, one's hunger for Glory, one's longing for Peace and one's dream to live Free.
      
A fantastical retelling of a Filipino classic with a dash of magic and a whole lot of blood set in Pre-Colonial Philippines. 

This story is part of the Bagani Saga.
      
Enjoy!
