Synopsis Edit

"Peace is a way of life in the kingdom of Nautica. For years, the kingdom has been founded on the ideals of harmony among the denizens of the sea.  The values of unified peace and the ability to love whomever they wished without discrimination, persecution, or social isolation were held above anything else.  In Nautica, predators and prey could have unconventional relationships, and interspecies relationships were perfectly permissible.

A swordfish assassin who goes by the name of Percuss walks into the milieu, assigned a deadly mission by an unknown source to assassinate the Great Sea King of the tranquil kingdom.

Almost immediately, Percuss finds herself interwoven in a war, romantic entanglements and a string of shady alliances.  There’s a cloud of mystery that hangs over the past of those in Nautica Kingdom, and the members of the Deep Sea Forces, who believe that the industrialization of Nautica is against their primal instincts of all things living in the sea.  To them, species should stick to their own kind to ensure survival, and living in peace only dulls their senses and renders them useless.  Everyone Percuss meets harbors a dark and twisted secret, and it’s up to her to make sense of who is really right and wrong in this war.

A tale of war, love, and advancement vs. primal nature."

Percuss is a swordfish assassin who comes from the Deep Sea. She is regarded as the most skilled assassin, and because of her fame, she was given the task of killing off the Great Sea King by an unknown source.  Her prowess lies in agility and power.  Percuss is calm by nature, and sort of sarcastic.  She’s a level-headed and observant person, constantly learning about her surroundings and those around her.  This causes her to find out that her once perfect world has blaring flaws that she questions.  This causes her assassination mission to become more of a mission of exploration both of herself and the kingdom she once regarded as the enemy.

Fish King Angla  Edit

Angla is an anglerfish, and adopted daughter of the Great Sea King. At first, she is thought to be male by Percuss, who accuses her of being a pervert with a harem.  She is the founder and leader of the fighting squad of mostly female warriors called the Seventh Infantry. Her refusal to sit on the sidelines made her father consider letting women have high-ranking positions in battle, and women assuming the roles of warriors.  Even though Angla has made great strides in her kingdom, she seems to be indecisive about what she wants personally, and what she should be as a princess. By nature, Angla is indecisive, down to earth, and struggles with her insecurities and choices, both as a person and a princess.

Brunhilde Edit

Brunhilde was one of the first people to join the Seventh Infantry.  She doesn’t say much and
