The world was destroyed in a nuclear war hundreds of years ago. This is what all the citizens of the last city know to be true. They live protected and safe inside their Wall and the giant dome overhead that protects them from the radiation outside.
Elizabeth was born a wealthy landowning noble in this city. When she was eight her father was convicted as a traitor to the king and beheaded in front of her.
She was imprisoned because of her father's crime and became Liv, the dishonored. She grew up as a slave in the torture prison where dishonored were sentenced to live and die. She nursed a hatred for the king and what he did to her family, and she waited for the right moment. She lived for one purpose, Revenge.
