Chapter 1 – Prologue
3rd Person's POV
Pandora Kingdom is divided into 9 part based on the economical state, the 1st district is for the King (the currently reigning king is King Glen), his family, personal guards and servants. The 2nd district is for nobles and their servants. The 3rd district is for rich peoples that can afford the land rent. The 4th district is for scientist and crafter of weapons. The 5th district is for soldiers and knights that will protect the town. The 6th district is for normal people. The 7th district is for the quite poor people. The 8th district is for poor people that the government can barely control. The 9th district is for criminals and rebels.
Pandora city is dangerous. Monsters have been attacking the city for 2 years. They are known as Chains. Their number is still unknown until now. Scientists have been studying the origin of the monster but they haven't found anything useful. Normal soldier can handle weak chains. But more skilled chains have to be handled by more skilled and high-ranking soldiers known as knights. They are honored and respected everywhere.
7th District, 1906
My name is Oz. I am an orphan. I have lived here in the orphanage at the 7th District since I was 8. Now I am 15 years old. My father hated me back then, I wonder if he still hates me now. I only have two friends, their name are Gilbert and Elliot. They are always there for me. Gil is always nice to me and Elliot is pretty rude sometimes but he is really nice inside.
I am quite an introvert. I usually stay home (in the orphanage) to read books or play the violin. I can play the violin quite well. I had bought one when I was 10 with my savings. I always see happiness in my friends face whenever I play the violin. That's why I always feel encouraged to play it almost everyday. But sometimes I do feel energetic enough to do some exercise.
Gil usually cooks for us. He's such a great cook. I love his food and I think Elliot also does. He can be seen running away from the cats around the neighborhood chasing him after shopping in the market, especially if he bought a lot of fish. Gil have always hated cats for his entire life, totally the opposite of Elliot.
Elliot is always full of imagination. He always runs around the orphanage, bringing his 'inventions' to experiment on somebody, usually Gil. He loves writing stories, that's why I always read his story, it's usually good, even though he is just a child, he can write well. I usually ask Elliot to play his piano to cheers me up. He's really good at playing it. The orphanage has a piano in the living room, it's very old but it still sounds good. I often get into a fight with him, but it usually doesn't last very long.
7th District, 1906
My name is Gilbert. People usually call me Gil. I am 14 years old and I am living in the 7th district orphanage along with my friends Oz and Elliot. I don't have memories of my past before I ended up here. I am afraid of cats, extremely afraid. That's why Elliot always bullies me with any cat that he can find. He is still a little child but he is extremely aggressive. Oz always says that I am a crybaby. It is true, after all I always cry at least once per day because Elliot bullies me. I have a pet bird, his name is Raven. He have been accompanying me for years.
I usually cook for Oz and Elliot. They always love the food I cook. To cook…you will need ingredients. That's why I go to the market early in the morning. And somehow the cats in the neighborhood always chase me all the way back to the orphanage after I'm done shopping.
Oz always cheers me up when I am sad and always comfort me when I am down. Such a great friend he is. His violin playing is the best that I have ever heard in my life. He is very quiet to people other than us. He loves reading books and Elliot likes to write stories, so they get along well despite their big age difference. He is an optimistic person, so he always can find a positive side for any problem.
Elliot is very playful and aggressive. He never sits down properly for more than 5 minutes except if he's writing a story, reading a story, or playing the piano. He is really good at playing the piano. He and Oz often play violin and piano together, the harmony sounds really good. They also often get into a fight but ended quite fast. Elliot's inventions always scare me. Why? Because I usually end up as his experiments subject. He is also very rude to other people that he doesn't like.
My name is Elliot. I'm 6. I'm currently living here in the orphanage with my friends Gil and Oz. My entire family was slaughtered before I was taken here 3 years ago. I always find it difficult to sit down quietly without doing anything. That's why I can't fit in with other children. They think I am crazy.
I usually play the piano in the orphanage's living room. Sometimes I write a story or read a story. But most of all I enjoy making things related to machines. I simply make something of my own creation. No one really accept my creation, they always mock me except for Oz and Gil. They accept my creation, even though Gil looks like he fears it rather than he values it, but he never mocks me.
I see Oz as my brother. He is really wise and knowledgeable. He accepts me the way I am, even though I am an energetic person and he is a quiet person we can get along pretty well. Even though we sometimes fight, we never fight for a long time. He can play the violin, which for me is the most beautiful sound in the whole world. I always accompany him whenever he plays his violin. I can sit down quietly no matter how long… if I am listening to his playing. He also read the stories that I make, I feels good to have someone giving compliment to my story.
Gil always acts like a crybaby, but deep inside I respect him. Just like a motherly figure, he always takes a good care of me. Cooking, cleaning, and other household related jobs, he can do all that perfectly. Though I often bullies him with cats around me and treated him like my experiments subject, he never got angry, not even once until now. I always wish to be like him, caring and kind toward everyone…
