Demitrius and Mathias with their friend, Melody, exploring forbidden places, where in front of the forbidden fruits of knowledge and life, their lives changed forever. Haunting headaches and with strange brands, the two boys learn they have been chosen for the Trinity Trials. They, along with Eous Lucentes, are placed on a journey of Gods, heroes, monsters, and magic. The boys must temper themselves and overcome dark enemies in the first of many trials, the treacherous Tower of Nirvana. Can Demitrius and the others become the next Holy Trinity? The fate of the worlds may rest in their hands.
“GOD! The Alpha and the Omega. The first and the last. The beginning
and the end. The Holy Father is, was and forever will be. For he is the
one who endures forever!
Gather close and listen well to this story of times before our lives
began. Countless times have this story passed down, always changing form
with each exchange. Well-- allow me to tell the true tale of our
father--of my father. One of many chosen and charged with maintaining
balance, replacing the ones of old. As it is said, not long after, a
phoenix will die and be reborn from its ashes.
Our father, my father, was chosen to be part of The Holy Trinity. The
mechanism which maintains the balance of GOD, bounded by the Infinity
Code. Whenever The Holy Trinity needs to be renewed, another will be
chosen to take its place. This is called The Divine Cycle.
The Holy Trinity of this story was chosen from a family of three; a
father of arrogance, a mother embodying empathy and a son who always
wondered. They exhibited the three signs of GOD. The Father became all
knowing, the mother became all understanding, and the son became all
seeing. These three came together, preserving peace and balance to all
that was, but their time was not forever. Two of the three fragments of
GOD manifested themselves as two young children. This is the tale of the
next Holy Trinity as their journey reveals their growth into maturity.
The time of old has past, bringing forth a new future. And with all that
said, the story begins.”
