The Bantrocs hold great power and respect within the Galation Empire. Each one, a symbol of its strength and perfection. But if one of its leaders, one of great strength and prestige, is to fail. If he disgraces himself and his emperor, he is punished. Humiliated, and striped of his power, he is forced to fight without honor. His armor, his second skin, taken from him, and his rank stripped away, he must now fight in that he may regain his pride, or die trying. Because of this, the Acolyte is a slave to his emperor. He fights with unequaled brutality, stealth, and ferocity, for he has nothing to lose, but everything to gain. If he can kill enough, he will be allowed to take back his honor, but most are killed, and justice is dealt.
