Absolution : Redemption exists but the price must be paid in blood.
Daniel Hunt is still searching for answers to his past. Along the way, he stumbled across The Order, an ancient society credited for toppling Earth.

Screams of the dead and dying echoed into our room.
“We have to go and help,” I said, marching toward the door. “They’re here.”
