The first story arc, "Rise of the Ape King", is the origin tale of the young albino ape, Pale, whose journey of self-discovery soon leads to the realization that he possesses an amazing ability. Pale discovers that he wields the power of absorbing the life force, gifts, and experiences of any adversary that he defeats along his quest to vanquish his world from a tyrannical ruler threatening to destroy his way of life through a technological plague.
