legacy prompts him to stay the course. As a consequence, tens of

And little does Cornelius know but the failures Yhoto is cultivating on
the other side of the universe will have a devastatingly profound impact
on his own immediate future. He will be put through a crucible of fire
and death; if he makes it out he will be stronger than he ever was
before; if not…
