Crooked Smile: The Leviathan Project
700 years after the "Apocalypse," humans and the fae (light elves, dwarves, gnomes, leprechauns, selkies and many more) now live together in the New World in mana-generated cities, but not without its share of prejudice. Humans hold the most power in the New World, while the light elves and dwarves come second, representing the rest of the fae in courts and councils. Gnomes are sought after for their unique magick; selkies for their forced companionship, and witches are hated and discriminated for past sins.
A young man named Silas Weaver lives his early childhood in the New World as an orphan, but after a horrible disaster in his hometown, he and a few friends are incidentally adopted by a mysterious and feared race of people. At the age of 18, Silas is now an expert swordsman with a double-edged power he inherited from the mysterious group, and a captain of an outlandish pirate crew. His only desires are to protect his friends and the freedom to do as he pleases, but after a scheme goes into an unexpected direction, he and his crew stumble on an adventure that pushes them towards a much greater destiny than they anticipated.
