The Blood Lion. I trust this role to you.Why Dad? Why is the Blood Lion neccessary to keep Singapore alive? Kenneth remembered asking his dying father this question, the day he made up his mind permenantly. "There will always be crime, there will always be corruption in every single country.

Trust.A firm belief for someone or something.Maxus remembered being in the exact same spot he was in two years ago. His father's funeral just finishing the day before. Maxus was a newly made orphan without any parents in his life to provide him the love and basic needs of life.The scene was clear as day in his head. That day had an unforgiving weather, pouring heavily outside the cozy comfort of the temple and flooding several streets around them. The temperature was borderline freezing, Maxus remembered shaking profusely to the cold but at that moment, it was the least of his concerns.He remembered feeling like he was sinking endlessly.A pit of pure emptiness was awaiting him. He didn't know what was going to happen to him, he didn't know if there was anything that could allow him to keep even the house he was staying in, the last place in the world that connected him to his parents, something he deeply wished would never be taken away
It's the first holiday of the year.Maxus still hasn't seen her messages despite days passing. Leah knew that he always seemed occupied with something other than focusing on school as well as having emotional trauma from events that took place in his past. Maxus always seemed to unfocused, almost like something big unresolved was constantly haunting him without rest.On top of all that pain and despression, he had no parents around to comfort or teach him. She knew he had an aunty and uncle who were his legal guardians and were financially supporting him as much as they could but even they weren't that well to do and had their own kids to take care of as well.Most girls would not even entertain the idea of talking to such a boy, he seemed so uncommitted to most and even to the girls in class, Maxus was just someone who didn't want to be here. Some of them might find him "cool ", a brooding secretive guy who talks rarely but yet, that was never how Leah perceived him.She could feel t
Is it the responsibility of a teenager to take on an army?An army that operates in the shadows of the wealthiest island nation, beneath it's squeaky clean exterior, an entire underground operation that has at least thousands of men working under the Blood Lion, what many consider to be a ruthless and cruel elitist mastermind that sits within the comfort of the government.Nevertheless, just because it's tough or impossible...it doesn't mean that Maxus shouldn't try.Way of the Scorpion, Martial Arts and Self Defense. The school opened, ran and taught by the most dangerous opponent Maxus had faced yet: Eden Lee, also known by the infamous code name given to his assassin alias, the Red Scorpion, credited with dozens of kills alongside multiple extremely high profile ones. Powerful men, criminal lords, terrorist leaders, politicians, wealthy business owners were nothing but another number to his kill count.Today is the day the Soultaker comes for Eden Lee.

"One clean hit. That's it."12 year old Maxus raised his fist, shifting his feet around to provide as much balance as he could, taking in a deep breath as he steadied his arms, pointing them towards Tony who took his fighting stance as well. "If you can survive 30 seconds, you win." Tony reminds."Bring it." Maxus recalled saying as Tony burst forward.The mentor switched his attack hands mid charge, from a fist to a chop as he swung at Maxus who managed to deflect the first shot, quickly stepping back to dodge another, sidestepping again to avoid a third and was about to have an opening for his own counter attack when Tony kicked, forcing Maxus to back off."You can read style changes now. That's an improvement, now try dodging these. Twenty seconds to go." Tony says as he reverted back to his fist, shifting himself towards Maxus who readied another defensive stance.Tony shot forward, throwing a barrage of jabs that Maxus blocked with his forearm
Singapore. One of Asia's richest countries despite it's small size and lack of natural resources. It's only real natural resource was technically it's people. Eden Lee had faith in that idea. The country's leaders understood this as well, always looking out for talent.
