Episode 1: Henry Levesque
Henry Levesque, while legendary, was not a man born into his privilege. He was born on the peculiar planet Ra kai. It was a wildly dangerous place to live at the time. The super wealthy, self proclaimed, C.E.O of the Galaxy Rorlack Lexington had destroyed the middle class and created a state of wealth imbalance unlike anything earth has ever seen. In the city the rich live like goddess’s eating gourmet food and sleeping in incredible estates. While the normal people like Henry had to struggle just to eat. If that wasn’t bad enough, he had a little sister to feed too. Ana bell was only ten, meaning all she could do was hide in their tiny closet sized apartment. You wouldn’t have recognized that Henry, the young twenty year old willing to do anything to survive.
Henry lived on Mcbuba Avenue, in the deepest part of the projects. Here on the streets its known as the train tracks. They call it that because the avenue isn’t an actual road. Its a bunch of tiny storage unit sized houses along an abandoned train track. It’s the type of place where everyone knows everybody, where family is more than just blood, and where everyone knows how to defend themselves.
Our story begins in the coldest part of the year. This time of year many people worry if they may die of cold or starvation. The crops die out and the animals hibernate. Food becomes scarce and that always means casualties. That’s why when Henry walked in the house with a big smile on his face Anabel was almost scared. That is, until he dropped a big bag of mushrooms onto the table. She immediately understood and got a similar smile on her face.
“I found a mushroom cave,” Henry exclaimed with glee.
“Thank you, this is wonderful brother we’ll be fed for days.” she wrapped him in a big embrace.
Henry sat down with his family for dinner. His mother was thanking him graciously for his work foraging in the woods. It was so kind, that Henry was actively insisting he was only doing his share out of pure embarrassment. His sister Anabel was so busy stuffing mushrooms in her mouth she was unable to say anything at all. Despite their rough environment, tonight was a good night.
“Darling we need to tell you something, but you have to promise to not do anything…crazy.” She said it with the caution of a grieving mother.
The news hit him like a bullet train, he felt violently ill his sister would go blind within the year. Progressive sight loss, the only way to stop it would be a 3000 credit surgery. Henry had not seen that type of money in his entire life. His sister would be doomed to a life of darkness if he couldn’t make real money quickly.
Despite his oath to his mother that he would simply go to bed, he needed to do something. There was no money here in the train tracks the only way to save her would be to sneak into the city to find work. It will be dangerous, and illegal but he has no choice. As he finished his diner he made a silent but potent oath, only to his god and himself. Yet, it would stick with him the rest of his life. That day he swore to rise above for his family and for himself.
