"We pledge to invest in mercy, love and kindness,
To achieve mercy; we must be empathetic,
To achieve love; we must be non-violent,
To achieve kindness; we must be compassionate."
Universal Sentient Rights
Iania Hari wanted to shout for help, but no one in their right mind would help her. She had committed the one unthinkable crime - MURDER - a crime that had not only been eradicated for centuries, but seen as the ultimate condemnation. When UE officers announced that she had violated the Universal Sentient Rights with their crisp, monotone voices, she refused to believe them. But now, there was no choice. She must follow the officers and prove her innocence in front of the world juries.
The year was 2310. CE45 - the cosmic explosion in 2045 - had pushed Earth to the brink of extinction until wealthy corporations formed the Unified Earth (UE) Committee. They had created artificial planetary shield, invented cydroids and restored habitable areas. For once, humans had finally embraced their good sides and saved the planet.
Iania found a court consultant, Gracen, to help present her case. Could Gracen help her convince the juries of her innocence? Or did Gracen uncover something else? Was she part of a set up by the Committee? If so, what can she do about it?
