These five individuals represent a Legacy that is repeated every one-hundred years. The Legacy was installed by Helios, God of the Sun, to protect Earth from human abuse. There is an Original (Ellen) who must complete the Legacy before she dies, to ensure the survival of the human species. This will be accomplished once Ellen is convinced that humans deserve to survive, despite a life lived full of manipulation, abuse, and lies.
As the species evolves down the path of abusing the planet, though, this task becomes more and more difficult as humans destroy the Earth and treat one another without compassion or care. This story is the descriptions of the difficulties of completing the Legacy to save the human race, peppered with tragedy, loss, and split-second decisions that cause relationships to cross and intersect.
