Ultima Fantasia Part 1: How Legends Begin by Zach Wood In Progress
It has been 10 long years since that fateful night. 10 long years since she had almost died. 10 years since Destiny began. Rouge 'Red Riding Hood' Fleys has always had nightmares about that night, about how her grandmother was killed in cold blood by Oryx; a monstrous and legendary werewolf that had been terrorizing the world for thousands of years. If not for the timely arrival of Jason and Heracles of the Argonauts, she'd be dead too. For 10 years, she lived among the crew of the Argo, but now, on her 13th birthday, things have changed on her 13th birthday, after hearing about Oryx for the first time in years. Rouge's thirst for revenge, coupled with her crippling fear of the werewolf, has led her to Conte de Fées, the largest and most prestigious academy in the world. Founded by Oscar Diggs, the former Wizard of Oz, along with Glinda and Fenris the Snow Queen, Conte de Fées was created to serve as a place where people of all nationalities, class, and races could come together and learn in peace. After a very intense trial by fire, Rouge is accepted into the academy. She thought she was the only one with a mission. She thought wrong. There are others like her, each seeking resolution to demons from their past, seeking peace from their troubled times, and trying to keep their sense of selves, such as Cinderella 'Cin' Algart, a girl who had barely escaped from her abusive stepmother with her sanity intact. Snow White Winter Grimmold, a scarred woman with many dark secrets to her past. Meghan Comarden, Princess to the Merfolk with plenty of crippling fears. And Peter Tronovsky, a former Shepard with a bone to pick with Oryx as well. They are just a few of the people Rouge will meet and a few of those who have their own trials to overcome. They need as much help as her, and she will need their help as much as they need hers. For sinister rumblings are circulating in the dark recesses of the world. Change is coming to the world, none of it for the better, and it is coming fast and with deadly force.
