Dutrius Atlas

by Annie Stein
Welcome to Solaris, traveller! Let me get you up to speed.
Solaris is a soft science fiction webcomic set in our own universe, kind of. Learn more by continuing to read, or click here to be taken to the comic.
Q:Where am I?   You're still in the system known as Sol. Except this time each planet is habitable and developed its own life. The people are humanoid, mostly.
Q:I heard something about a comic?   Oh yes! The main comic is still in development, but you can read the first few pages of Little Blue if you click here.  
Q:What's going on?   Sol is invading. The resentful sun sends its angelic armies: the Scourge. For now, they're being held back at Mercury by Penumbra.

Duty runs deep in the veins of the Atlas family, even among its black sheep. Dutrius has dedicated his life and vast amounts of the family coffers to his cause: discovering why the Scourge turned on the planets they once swore to protect.   Unlike most of his family, Dutrius decided to aid the refugee efforts personally. He craved answers, an understanding of why this was happening. He met with the Refugees of Mercury aboard the Atlas liners, he heard stories of stoic, terrible Scourge. Violently bright champions of the sun, singing to themselves as they slaughtered. Once, he even glimpsed the comet-like streak as another set of Scourge landed on Mercury. The imagery seared itself onto the back of his retinas, fermenting in due time into a full blown obsession with the Scourge.   His obsession runs deeper now than ever before. Any piece of news about the scourge, any texts, any information is zealously hunted down and added to his investigation.
What if they know I know?! At least I know they know I know, but do they know I know they know I know?!

Haha, thank you! Hm, my guess is "They've been watching us through the sunlight, and they're retaliating to all our sins!!"
