You have a gift. You can be a hero. You also know the Truth. To work with and submit to the Union is a Faustian bargain. It is to be enslaved and kept as an attack dog. Can you escape the Academy, or will you, too, die trying or lose your free will to Service?
You will go to class. You will grow up. You will be experimented on. And you will Serve. But only if you can't escape before the clock ticks down to your doom. Only by banding together with your fellow students can you resist the indoctrination, and only with their help can you escape. There has to be a way.
