Listen up, folks! In a galaxy where the suns of Draco stretch over a whopping sixteen light years, transportation costs are crucial in the thirty-second century. And let me tell you, Illyrion is the holy grail of space travel. Our protagonist, the audacious Lorq von Ray, is willing to brave the heart of a freshly obliterated sun just to get his hands on seven tantalizing tons of this precious element.
Now, why is Lorq so eager to obtain this Illyrion? Profit, my friends. The potential profit is so astronomical that Lorq has zero trouble rounding up an enticing crew. We've got a gypsy musician and even a moon-crazy scholar who's all about that antique art of novel writing.

This revenge is so all-consuming that Lorq won't hesitate to do whatever it takes to achieve it.
