The guardian of thebes
Thebes is a particularly nasty run down neigbourhood in London located between Kings Cross and Caledonia road. A ruthless gangster named Laius controls the area and is determined to build himself a nefarious kingdom which he can rule unrivalled and eventually sieze complete control of the underground criminal networks of the city.
The streets of Thebes are littered with thieves, prostitutes and drug dealers, those who have been discarded from everywhere else find themselves forced to help line the pockets of Laius and his ever growing empire. But Thebes has another dangerous inhabitant who, in her way, provides a certain protection for the lost souls of London, an inhabitant who even Laius is wary of; and she is waiting, she is waiting for a man who's arrival has been prophesied, she is waiting for a man who will destroy Laius and finally clean up the streets of Thebes.
Until then...Let me ask you a question...
