The Departure – Eliza Stopps

Every hero needs an origin story.

This short story takes place before The Leslie Kim Serials, in the first prequel to Mythical Investigations. It explores the hellscape that Earth has become after genetically modified humans go wrong. They are faster, smarter, and they thirst for blood.

Long before Leslie Kim was working as a bounty hunter, his father was seeking vengeance for the love of his life. Chul Kim’s determination to avenge his wife and leave Earth forever will not be thwarted by anyone. Not even his own son.
