The year is 2019. The epic tale of Beowulf and Grendel has been reduced to mere legend in the mind of the public. Men, women and children go about their days with no thought of the age-old conflict between man and monster. They would never suspect that the descendants of man’s greatest hero (and his greatest villain) walked among them.
While the descendants of Grendel are aware of their identity (and are in hiding), descendants of Beowulf - Beos - must come to discover themselves. When these hero(in)es reach the age of 18, they develop what doctors believe is an allergic reaction to their own adrenaline. Little do they know that this is actually a trait passed down through generations, a gift from their patriarch. When adrenaline courses through their veins, Beos develop unique abilities that enhance their skills in combat. Each person reacts differently to the adrenaline rush, but if it is not managed properly, it can bring more harm than good.
Out of the public eye, Fort Geats stands as a training ground for young Beos. Here, they can discover the truths of their heritage and learn skills for battle.
On the other hand, the Grendels also have a home base - Disney World. They built the amusement park as a way to lure their prey to them. In order to maintain their facade, Grendels only capture individuals without groups - people with no one to report their disappearance. While this ruse has kept the Grendels alive and fed for years, they are becoming restless. They yearn for the days of old, when they could plunder the cities of men and feast to their fill. A leader is rising up among them, slowly raising an army to claim the world of men. The world is on the brink of war - and they don’t even know it’s coming.
