By birth, and association, you are one of the most famous people in the big city of Lehsa. Your father’s the mayor, and you’re from a bright, vibrant, bustling city… and yet, until recently, you didn’t realise all the secrets yourself and the city held.
Humans amongst supernaturals, humans amongst half-supernaturals, all whilst the latter live in hiding.
When you return home to Lehsa to begin your postgraduate studies, you find yourself immersed into this world that you never knew existed.
Then, you find yourself, and your birthmark, at the centre of a high-profile mystery. A double homicide.
You’re not a killer. The group of supernaturals you’ve been pushed to join forces with aren’t the killers either, yet here you are with no choice but to fight and clear your names.
With secrets and mysteries to unravel left, right and centre—trust is a dangerous game.
Your fame and status aren’t going to be enough to get you through. Your birthmark isn’t enough either, frankly, it wasn’t ever enough.
You’ll be side by side with a bunch of supernaturals, and whilst discovering yourself, you’ll discover a whole lot more… or you’ll lose everything you know in the blink of an eye.
And though this story is far from over, tell me, golden child, are the secrets, and the lies, and the fights all worth it in the end?

- Spend money like the damn rich kid you are.
- Go from rich uni student to being a valued member of the supernatural community… or they can hate you. Feel free to decide.
- Find out what your birthmark really means…
And at the end of the day, your story isn’t about being rich, and it isn’t about being the child of a well-known mayor.
It’s about the mark you’re going to leave on the world… and the mark I’m talking about isn’t the one that glistens on your forearm.
Their heart is under lock and key, but they wouldn’t mind it being opened.
With the weight of Ancient Greece on their shoulders and as a distant relative of Goddess Athena, some would Athalia/Asher Dempsey has a right to be… prickly. Though many would go against that, and frankly, they don’t care what you think. They’re the headstrong, 'action now, speak later, stoic, sarcastic half-deity with a million guards up. Get past the snide remarks and cold demeanour, you’ll gain their loyalty. And maybe, when you get a guard down, you’ll gain something more.
They stayed soft in a world so hard.
Gleaming eyes, soft smiles, a heart of gold; Blaire/Blaze Holden is a gem—even when their own mind and body are in a fight with one another… literally, B hates being a werewolf. Despite their insecurities, someone so witty, confident and emotionally intelligent is an absolute ride or die. But maybe you’ll be the one to fall for them, and protect them from the very same thing that destroys them. Themself.
It’s all just bravado to keep them safe. Be their safety net.
A flirt. A charismatic, dimpled, flirt. Kiana/Kaidan de la Renta, on the outside, is your typical introverted, confident vampire. But beneath the profanities, the lopsided smirks, diamond earrings, and denim/leather jackets, you’ll find something much more tender. A sensitive personality, a broken soul… literal bravado and a desperate cry for help. And even though relationships aren’t their thing, and the other side of their bed is empty and cold, making a connection with someone is something they crave.
They’re pure magic, darling.
Okay, granted, Phoebe/Phoenix Martens is much more than the magic that runs through their veins and bursts from their fingertips. The (fake) blonde, blue-eyed magical being has a sharp, intelligent mind, they’re the type of calm you want to have before, during, and after a storm — the suave European that cares more about others than any kind of ego. Yet with the seemingly perfect life, they’re the one that’s never chosen. Take the leap. Choose to love them.
