Ooh look, a Synopsis!

In a post-technology era, the world was moving along fine and at a steady pace as people found various means to do what they needed to; and then a new technology was introduced. Steam powered contraptions began to appear all over the world, slowly at first but increasing rapidly with time and along with them, junk yards. Now the world relies heavily on this new technology (and the ridding of the old), even more so now as natural disasters seem to be occurring more often than before. And then rumours began to stir amongst the people, rumours of a saviour of sorts,the girl with the white hair – the Junk Yard Angel.

Noah Otsile is a young boy with a metallic-heart. Without his parents’ permission, he sets out on a journey to find the woman with the white hair, following any and all clues he can get in order to thank her for the gift of life she’s given him but more importantly, to ask her to help his dying father.

Thiago Nambia is a miner for Steam-Tech Industries in Central, the hub of steam powered devices. During one of the mining operations, he stumbles upon a device that could end the job’s of all the miners in Central…and more; at the crux of his discovery, is a white haired woman. In his effort to alert his fellow workers of the impending doom, the authorities catch on to his knowledge and he is immediately exiled out of Central. He then sets on a path to uncover the truth behind the supposed saviour and this the new technology but his discoveries reveal more truth than he can handle.

  1. Sounds very interesting 🙂

  2. I take it you’ll be a tad bit too busy to churn out some drawings of the white haired gal along the way? 😛
    For whatever reason I pictured this taking placing in a Samurai Jack stylized world.
