Red is the strongest weakling in the world. He couldn't outfight a newborn fawn but could turn that fawn into a god. That's what's special about him, he has a power that infects the world and makes things better. Want to build a farm in a desert no problem, want pineapples in the winter, easy, and do you want the greenest grass every try to stop him. Only this power attracts greedy competitors, nobles, and worst of all the antiform.
His sister Violet takes after their hero of a father in power, looks, and grit. When the antiforms came knocking she knocked back hard. It was only when he interfered that she got distracted. Now she's an antiform and his father can't stay any longer.
Red is alone with a farm that everyone wants and no one to defend him. If he can't find a way to strengthen his position he'll be left with nothing or a slave.
