Ok so I realise I talk a lot about the characters for PARADISE but I haven’t really mentioned much (Or anything really) about the world which is something I should have done in the beginning and that’s my bad.
SO I’m finally talking about the thing I should have done a long time ago so here.
So once upon a time which was a VERY LONG time ago (Cliche I know) The world was whole and the human and the abnormals (That what I’m calling them until I think of a better name) got along and lived in relative peace.
But one day a war broke out and the humans were fighting against the Abnormals. The war lasted years and left a large part of the world wrecked but as the humans were winning the Abnormals retreated and created a barrier that formed liked a bubble using very strong magic that kept them all in and safe from the rest of the world.
In this area they created their own little world that flourished while the rest of the world suffered from the after effects from the war.
This land was called Paradise although many gave this place the weird nickname of ‘The zoo of magic’ Saying that Abnormals generally are either Animal based or mythical creatures and magical being like witches and wizards and other weird non-human beings.
The main capital of this land was Called Haven and it is were a large amount of the abnormals lived.
The world outside was left in a very bad shape. after things leveled started to get things back together and calmed down. In this calmness A group of 4 humans who were still angry at the Abnormals and the rest of humanity for the destruction they caused.
they made their own city and isolated themselves from the rest of humanity and everyone who lived here was trapped in this city and were unable to leave.
This city was called (I don’t actually have a name for this city yet so from this point on the name will be represented by this symbol [#] until I actually think of a name).
As to avoid conflict in their city the Founders created ‘Founders law’ That made everyone lose their identity to make sure everything stayed in order. To make sure things stayed like this They made schools that taught future generations and only teach them the things they wanted them to learn which included lot’s of propaganda They didn’t even tell them the entire truth about their history and made everyone think that the war wiped off all of the worlds life and the founder created this city for the last survivors. So that means that there was nothing outside of their city. (In many ways [#] is pretty much this world’s version of north korea).
The residents of [#] for the most part are brainless almost robot-like with no individuality, husks of a human being. There are a small percentage called the ‘defectors’. These people disobey and break founders law either privately or openly. Whenever a defector is found they are generally hunted down by the government who then try to silence them. They have several ways of doing this and none of them are good and are often violent. Here’s a list.
Punish them severely either physically or mentally with torture,
Brainwashed and/or drugged,
Kidnapped and jailed for life and in most cases don’t tell the public or the family,
Publicly executed to deter people defecting.
Taken to court where they are sentenced to one of these options (This does not happen very much),
Have some of their closest family and friends sentenced to one of these options.
As to avoid detection all defectors do whatever they can to avoid being found. Out of the entire city there is really only one place where Defectors can go where they can be themselves which is a place called the DUMP.
The DUMP is a place just outside of the city’s border where the things the government consider ‘Illegal’ are dumped into large piles.
Although the dump is considered a haven for Defectors. The DUMP is a quite dangerous place for anybody to be in. Mostly because The piles of junk are very unstable and large parts of them fall often and the air is very polluted and is not safe to breath in.
Also the area is quite heavily guarded by city Authorities to make sure nobody goes into the dump and picks up the illegal junk that lies there.
So the people who decide to risk going into the dump will have to Avoid Authorities that will try to catch and punish them, Avoid large piles of junk falling on their heads and wear masks so they can avoid breathing in the pollution.
Every once in a while A defector is found going into the dump and when this happens they are punished cruelly.
While the majority of the Abnormals were in PARADISE even centuries later they are still rounding up stray abnormals from the outside and bringing them to safety in their land. Despite what happened they do have a human population although this is a very small number and the humans that do live their aren't really treated very well by others.
Other than the abnormals there were also Angels and demons but they lived in their respective places in heaven and hell. Of the two, Angels are allowed to be in Paradise but only when God let’s them. On the other hand Demons are not allowed in Paradise at all. BUT there is a few demons living there but to live there Demons have to be allowed in which is a very long process and most Demons don’t even succeed in getting permission to even Enter.
Really the only demons that are allowed in are the high ranking demons that are known to be trusted and that can obey the rules of Paradise and won’t hurt anyone.
Even though they know they are not allowed in pretty much all of the Demons still try to get in by force but they can’t because of the barrier. If they ever succeed in getting in they all plan to wreak havoc and destroy everything.
The protective bubble that protect the Abnormals is really a piece of work. The bubble is entirely made of magic that can not be broken or corrupted and it won’t let maelvent forces in.
Along with keeping unwanted things out the bubble keeps things in as well.
The resident can’t actually leave.Well they can but only for a brief amount of time and they can’t move to somewhere outside. Doing this is the only thing that can corrupt the protective bubble which would allow everything trying to break in inside and then cause chaos.
It would also negatively affect the people inside which would come as a curse that would spread to everything in Paradise that would slowly kill everything.
To make sure none of this happens only a select few are allowed out and these people are only allowed out to round up stray abnormals and bring them to safety.
One of these people include Flynn who not only takes stray abnormals to Paradise he also goes to [#] and smuggles out defectors that are facing persecution or death. Flynn isn’t really allowed to take the humans he saves to Paradise unless he is directly told to. Instead he takes them to a city that is not too far from Paradise that is more than happy to take defectors from [#] and are actually close allies of the government of Paradise The name of this place is Lorbridge.
The story of PARADISE started when Eliza is revealed to be a defector and the government took her to trial and sentenced her to death. So she just sat in Isolation waiting for her execution. Just a few hours before it was to happen Flynn found her and saved her by smuggling her away on his plane. But for some reason (I won’t reveal why right now) He took Eliza to Paradise when he wasn’t supposed to. So he got in a lot of trouble for it and for the time being is no longer allowed to fly out of the city until further notice.
During this time he and Amana Mumbi help Eliza get used to life in Paradise, be her guide and protect her from any danger that may happen.
As to not spoil anything else I’ll stop here and I won’t reveal too much of the important things that happen in the story.
