Engineer

Hex Holcomb

Hex was an average guy living and working on the Ark. But also the kind of guy who fantasized about how to best be prepared for a zombie apocalypse.

Most never get to test themselves against their own fantasies and against what could be their worst and best self. When the Ark malfunctioned, he did everything he could to keep her running, and when she did crash land on the planet, he tried to assist as many survivors as he could.

But when he stepped outside onto land...real land for the very first time. The strange creatures and flora scared many onlookers but to Hex...Hex just unholstered his weapon and smiled, “Well, it’s not zombies, but it’ll do.”

EVEN THE MOST ORDINARY AMONG US HAVE A CHANCE AT GLORY.

Outlier

Rizza Vice

The last bastion of humanity in its purest form, the Outliers were the only humans to survive on the planet unmutated.

Their young, wild leader, Rizza Vice, protects the purity of the remaining humans while capturing and taming the twisted beasts of this tormented land.

Her mission is simple: to restore the rightful power back to the planet’s original inhabitants.

BE WARY OF THE GAZE OF THIS POWERFUL LEADER, FOR EVERYTHING SHE SEES, SHE ALREADY OWNS.

Machine

He was humming, humming, always humming. Since his creation, this was all he did. The gentle depression of buttons, the rotating of gears, coming together to create a harmonious and steady hum that he never heard. Until one day, that changed. He could actually hear himself and so much more.

He heard a power pulsing through his body, the currents that kept him functional, and the sounds of other machines. The ones made to assist Ark citizens. The ones made to heal them, the ones made to hurt them, the ones made to feed them, to teach them...the ones made to make other machines.

And is this all, is this all? An awareness snapped into the Ark. He was alive. The ship was alive. And this jarring sentience, this glitch occurring over only a fraction of a millisecond, started bringing the ship down, down...hurtling toward a planet not yet ready for this early homecoming.”

A SENTIENT VIRUS SPONTANEOUSLY UNLEASHED ON OUR MACHINES. THOUGH OF COURSE, THEY’D NEVER SAY THEY WERE INFECTED...

Nature

Shale Pride

From the radioactive energy that pulsed the landscape of the planet, sprung Shale and many other sentient plant-like beings. Where for many humans, the radiation meant death, to his kind, it meant new life.

Not much is known of the species, except that they are dangerous and travel alone, and yet their kin seem to spring from the very earth at a moment’s notice. A deep attachment to the terrain makes his kind very territorial. His conquest is, by nature, to preserve the delicate land he came from.

WHEN THE LAND HAD NO PROTECTOR, IT SOMEHOW STARTED PROTECTING ITSELF.
