To sum up the story in a single sentence: Traumatized child soldier becomes a high school student.
If that doesn’t appeal to you then you can probably ignore the rest of this post
The story follows a kid from overseas that was born in a warzone. Early in your life, you were taken in by a PMC that dealt in terrorism for hire and trained you to be a soldier. This was your childhood. A few years later and a mission in the United States goes bad, you get captured and interrogated, but the agent responsible for stopping you decides to give you a chance at a regular life with the condition that you have someone watching over you. Thus the story begins and you’re getting ready for your first day of school; backpack, pencils, extra pencils, notebooks, extra notebooks, 9mm pistol- no wait, your new guardian is telling you to leave that at home. Well at least you have your emergency switchblade- no, can’t have that either. No problem, you could easily kill anyone who messes with you with your bare hands; oh crap, turns out you aren’t supposed to gouge out people’s eyes when they try to bully you. And shoving a gun in someone’s head is apparently not how you’re supposed to react when they ask to take you out. And now those girls are snickering at you; are they planning to assassinate you? High school might be harder than you thought it would be.
At the start of the game, pretty much all your skills are maxed out. You are a complete badass; martial arts, firearms, explosives, tactics, stealth, and reflexes are all maxed out. In a battlefield you are unstoppable; the problem is that you’re in High School now, not a battlefield, and those skills are only going to get you in trouble if you don’t get them down (see the above examples). The only way to get a happy ending is to forget most of those skills you’ve learned from your childhood; but if you forget them too well, you won’t be able to survive to see your happy ending when your childhood catches up to you. The player needs to learn to balance trying to adjust to their new life and retaining the skills necessary to defend it; too much in either direction and you’ll probably not like the outcome.
