As The DOGMA Program expanded, over a million former convicts were now paid and trusted to protect the lives of every American citizen. Commissioner Reams was promoted to Commander Reams, taking control of the new agency; an elite troop of armed guards and rangers known only as the DomiForce.
Whilst the first rangers wore black combat suits and resembled more traditional military forces, this depiction of a DomiForce Ranger is regarded as third generation (3rd Gen), and comes from much later in HEROPLOT: The Spear of Destiny, where Edgar is no longer president, but now Supreme Leader Spear.VIEW ON OPENSEA.IO
Following the death of Supreme Leader Spear, many challengers rose to claim the Districts of DomiNation. One such leader was the notorious Lee Ling who had taken control of DomiNation Beta1 and Beta3.
Known as "The Lyncher," Ling was a man who took what he wanted and executed anyone who dared to say otherwise.
"He was infamous for carrying a switchblade. It was a gold and diamond encrusted knife that he would use to wildly stab his victims. Over and over in his unbridled frenzy, he would slice and wound, until their bleeding became profuse; until they fell, incapacitated, and ceased to struggle any further. After the initial shock of their injuries, having regained consciousness, his victims would find themselves tied to a chair. Life would not have long left, and Ling would sit aside them, enjoying their suffering as he awaited their final breath. It was said that he absorbed the souls of all those that he killed, which is why he stared into their eyes to take them from their bodies once they dimmed. That the spirits of his enemies could never reach heaven or ever find hell, because he kept them for himself. Locked inside to make him immortal."VIEW ON OPENSEA.IO
Inside DomiGen Labs, the experiments of a young Dr. Spear were not without consequence in his search for success. As techniques improved, the series of unrelated and unexplained deaths began to decline, but the reasons for these DomiCides hid a more heinous truth.
Those who had tried to conceal their true form, suppressed by the DomiForce, hunted by the Shadow Seekers, and subjected to the torment by those of similar kind who instead sought acclaim, would no longer be silent.
An unselfish act of rebellion saw the start of The Rising, as the words of the boy and the raven-haired woman spread throughout DomiNation like a call to arms.
"In Every Battle, One Will Rise. In Every Victory, One Must Fall."VIEW ON OPENSEA.IO
Having waited with unbearable patience, the time had come for Edgar to confront President Roberts in the Oval Office and reveal the role that he has unsuspectingly played in a meticulously planned scheme. Not willing to go lightly, Roberts believes he has triggered the alarm and is relieved when a member of his security detail bursts through the door.
"Thank God, Jim…. Hurry! Help me get—"
All, however, is not as it would seem, and much to the president's surprise, the agent hands Edgar a syringe.
"I'm sorry, Mr. President," he says, turning coldly to his Commander in Chief, but the agent may yet regret the side he has chosen and the path that fate now forces upon him.View On OpenSea.io
Exasperated by his efforts in attempting to gain the confidence of Edgar, a much-loved patient confesses his concerns to a nurse he believes he can trust.
When a letter arrives unexpectedly upon the young doctor's desk, Edgar opens it believing it to be from Penny. Much to his surprise, the details contained within the three, hand-written pages question his very existence and set in motion a series of events that force the hand of his mentor to reveal what Edgar believes to be the true motivation for an inadvertent friendship. Out of his depth and embroiled in a struggle that offers no satisfactory outcome, there is nowhere for him to run and no one to whom he can turn. Now trapped in a game of his own making, only the worst can be expected... that is, if the words of Clydesdale's confession really are true?VIEW ON OPENSEA.IO
When former Vice President Lewis calls for Dr. Rowly to come and examine Edgar, he is certain that his chance sit behind the Resolute desk has finally arrived. However, as Rowly enters the northwest door Edgar seems anything but troubled.
The piece takes inspiration from Getting Away with Murder, Chapter Fifteen of HEROPLOT: The Spear of Destiny, and the following scene:
"For a physician, Rowly was a peculiar man, quite unconventional and most definitely eccentric... His tangled auburn locks were always unkept, thick and curly, split by an occasional white strand; natural highlights, he called them. His tortoise-shell spectacles were wrapped with brown parcel tape across the bridge, and they perfected a look that was not unlike a retired mathematics teacher from the 1970s. He tended to perspire quite heavily, and as a result, the tape that held his spectacles together more often than not lost its adhesion. As he took out a handkerchief and loudly blew his nose, his glasses began to slide apart."View on OpenSea.io
Following an attack on The Great DomiGen Tower at the end of Chapter Sixteen, the personal bodyguards of Supreme Leader Spear are the first to react.
The Sentinels of Spear are grouped into two: Sentries and Setorians, and leading them in command, is The Lord Sentinel himself.
Tasked with a single directive, the duty of the Sentinels was explicitly clear; a duty they now appear to have failed. As The Lord Sentinel attempts to navigate through the burning wreckage of the upper penthouse, he locates a body, only to discover the faintest pulse. With no alternative to certain death if he should clear a path for extraction, The Lord Sentinel must consider his sacrifice, and yet, wherever there’s a pulse there must surely be hope; a chance for redemption, to redeem reputation. He paused for a moment. His decision was made...View on OpenSea.io
