The story of Fluff Riot; Prologue
The characters of the Fluff Riot universe live on Vesper Island; a magical, hidden land off the coast of the bustling cyberpunk city of Neo Genshu. For centuries, the inhabitants of Vesper Island enjoyed a life of peace, prosperity and joy. But the world is changing, and there is darkness on the rise. There are whispers that Cursed Creatures have returned, lurking in the shadows, harming citizens of the island. With fear and mistrust growing stronger, the magic that protects the island is starting to weaken.
This is where our story begins…
Vesper Island was discovered long ago by a powerful Tenko, (a nine-tail celestial fox or kitsune), named Vesper. She made it a sanctuary for those pure of heart and intention by bestowing a powerful protection over the island; for as long as its citizens would treat each other with kindness and respect, the protection over the island would stay strong. The inhabitants named their new home Vesper Island in honor of their beloved Tenko, who watches over them from the celestial plains above.
For centuries, the citizens of Vesper Island enjoyed happiness and harmony. But the rise of dark forces allowed fear and mistrust to penetrate their way of life. There are those who recognize the signs and warn against the divisive behavior. Fear, however, is a strong emotion, and a difficult one to fight against, thus giving way to anger, selfishness and violence.
But there is still good in the world.
Khali is a kitsune possessing mystical powers including the ability to wield foxfire and shape shift into human form. She grew up in the Temple of the Fu-Dogs. Back when the darkness first emerged, Khali's mother hid her in the Temple to save her, but never returned.
Now, many years later, Khali is grown and the darkness in the land is re-emerging. Many citizens of the island deny its return and choose to believe the darkness is gone for good. As rumors of Cursed Creatures and mysterious occurrences grow more frequent, Khali is thrust into a quest to seek out the reasons for its re-emergence, unlocking a wealth of secrets regarding her own past and identity. It leads her to destined friendships, dangerous foes, and a cyberpunk world beyond Vesper island that is a vastly different place, thick with corruption, greed and strife.
