John Ronald was the son of a wealthy landowner in Vicroy, Klenard. Hardworking and calm, he enjoyed some influence in Queen Eleanor and King Charlemagne’s new vision for the kingdom. But this did not last long. In the 240’s, the hatred for anybody foreign, especially non-Christians, grew under the direction of Mother Church’s Holy One. The laws grew stricter, and soon the Holy One dictated succession, lifestyle and daily life.

In 251, Mother Church demanded that all Christian kingdoms wage war on these lands. On the threat of excommunication and extermination, Eleanor and Charlemagne assisted in the mass execution and exodus of the Jastese and their allies. However, the war devastated Klenard socially, economically and politically. While other kingdoms fell to revolution, secession and devastation, Eleanor and Charlemagne held Klenard together by a thread. The peace did not last long.

When Eleanor died in 271, her son, Robert, took the throne. Not even a year later, a coup orchestrated by Prince Edward, Jayne Brutrose’s blood son, quickly overthrew him and Charlemagne, and many were executed, imprisoned and exiled in the aftermath. As the new King of Klenard, Edward abolished all previous reforms and punished anybody who stood in the way. These changes made John a widower and a wanted man. With friends at his side, he wandered into a sanctuary: the treehouse city in the Zean Forest of Klenard, the Black Market Little Deef.

Bands of dissatisfied citizens in Little Deef gathered and spoke of revolution. The idea was not new. It had come to Klenard time and again, more recently with the worldwide organization, the United Front. Although John hesitated to particiupate in anything against the Christian world order, he found that he would do anything to keep his daughter, Victoria, safe. While marrying Victoria was ideal, it was not always guaranteed. With encouragement, he made a name for himself, preaching messages of peace and compassion. It allowed him to be trusted, and eventually reach a rank of respect within the United Front, an organization fighting against Mother Church's extreme teachings.

But John had other hopes. He wanted the Holy One to see the desired changes the world craved. Inside, he struggled and doubted himself. He enmeshed himself further with the idea of revolution, not realizing that he set himself on a new course. John underestimated the vengeance of King Edward and Mother Church…and it was going to cost him and those closest to him dearly.
