In a universe where magic is the driving force of every planet. One would think that being able to use magic was up to luck, but in reality, it is all calculated. A new power was born from the people unable to use magic, but they would not know until later that the consequences were fatal. A fierce pirate traveled the boundless universe in search of his reason of being. He lived like a king with countless people under him in his crew. People everywhere feared the mere mention of his name, but no one would know that he also wasn't able to use magic until a particular incident. To the ones he loved, he was a saint. And to the ones he hated he was cruelest of demons. However, he would, unfortunately, breathe his last breath under the combined efforts of unknown powers. His reincarnation will inherit his power, and his countless enemies spread across the cosmos! Will he discover the truth about his unique gift?! This is my first story I ever made public, and criticism would be much appreciated as I am not so good with grammar! *Also putting it on RR*
As soon as the human calendar reached 1000, the world came down upon them. No longer content with the many islands and scattered dock-towns, the bestial peoples grew violent and lashed out at the main continent. The humans, who exclusively owned the land, fought hard and long to keep their precious footing in the vast water world. But humans proved no match for the brute force and numbers of the beast people. Those who did not fall were scattered. Forced away from the continent, the remaining humans took refuge among the islands and dock-towns, building upon what the bestial peoples left behind. Although anger and resentment was strong, the power of the human race had become insignificant. In time, life became calm and mankind settled into its new accommodations. As centuries passed, humans forgot the power and numbers they once possessed. The romantic idea of their own continent became a bedtime story for children. Humans adapted to life at sea and ocean and never did it seem out of the ordinary.
