Plot[edit | edit source]
Part 1[edit | edit source]
Esper. Examination day at the Vectis City Academy. The noted pupil Silas Renn is pitted against Tezzeret of Tidehollow. Both of them have etherium-enhanced bodies. Onlookers note that Tezzeret had showed promise as a mage in his youth, but that they are not impressed anymore. Tezzeret gets frustrated by Renn's countermagic and tries to force a decision. Renn uses his vulnerability to strike him down. Renn wins and Tezzeret hears he is expected at the Headmaster's office early the next morning.
When Tezzeret arrives home, he finds his father wounded after an attack by rippers. His father notes that there is ever less etherium to ga around, and ever more who want it for themselves. Tezzeret states that the Seekers are going to change that, but his father doesn't believe him and ask him to come home. Tezzeret shouts that he never is gong to be scrapper, and angrily leaves. Considering the fact that the Seekers alone have the secret to forge new etherium, and that promise will cast the world in perfection, he vows that nothing can stand in his way to become a Seeker himself.
The next morning, Tezzeret is late to arrive at the Headmaster's office. The Headmaster announces that Tezzeret has to leave the Academy, and that he is about to inform the Seekers of that fact. He states that Tezzeret will never be more than a scrapper. Tezzeret looses his temper, kills the dean and strips the body of etherium.
