The Island of the Champions
In a world completely hidden within our own, there sits a sacred island secluded from the lesser of humanity. It's history travels back far eons ago to the beginning of days when four brothers ruled the world. Their names were North, East, South, and West. Together, they were called the Four Champions.
Each brother from eldest to youngest claimed one of the four parts that made up the world. North claimed the sky and air. East chose the earth and land. South decided on the water and sea. But West was known for being very clever. With his creative means did he invent the element of fire and Myth, outsmarting them all. But one day, after ages of being bullied, persecuted, and tormented by his jealous brothers, West snapped, and he fled the Island of the Champions. Never to be seen ever again.
Now with the inequality of power, the result in West's exile created a ripple effect of imbalance on the Island and in the world of which we know today, forming an ultimate and gory rivalry between the remaining brothers. Forevermore their descendants would yearn to tear each other apart out of nothing but pure, innate loathing. Until a prophecy was foretold.
One day to come, after eons of suffering, wrath, and hatred, an heir of each brother would be born and inherit their patron's power. The modern set of Champions would have to work together to restore the balance and peace to the world, all the while loathing and trying not to tear each other apart. And this prophecy has only just began to reveal itself true.
Eons later to the present modern day, our main character Drake Pillar, a sarcastic high school sophomore, has thought of himself to be just another number in teenage youth. But in reality, he has no idea just how important he really is. He's already had a pretty suckish excuse for a life, but oh how it's only just started for him. The life of a Champion's Heir is the most envied, but also the most miserable. And it's even worse for someone who doesn't know who he is.
