Once upon a time, in a far away place, there was a land with harsh oppression. The people were starved, over-worked, and taxed beyond belief. While the people were dying on the streets, the King of the land was living in vast excess, and used the people’s money as fast as he could get it.
Meanwhile, the public was growing restless. Two men in particular worked against this evil regime; although enemies near the beginning, they became uneasy allies, and one became the leader of the opposition due to his political abilities, while the other became the head general of the armed forces. They soon took their country with minimal bloodshed, and replaced the government with one composed of working class citizens, as well as taking their country out of a great war.
But their system was unpolished, and after the leader died, an unprecedented evil rose in government ranks, tricking the people into thinking the general was the enemy and that HE forged the revolution they grew to admire. The general was exiled and eventually killed, while the new leader proved to be worse than the king before; he worked his people longer hours, he took more of their food, and he killed on a level never seen in history.
Fifty years later all three names bring feelings of hate and resentment to almost everyone in the modern world. The atrocities of the third man, which were unknown at the time, have been brought to life; and despite this, a new evil wishes to reinstate the imperfect system, this time with the full support of his people.
