Welcome to the world of Lineage, where one's destiny is determined by the color of his skin. The Elite rule all, backed by the might of the Blooddread armies. The six purecaste races provide all sustenance, trade and commerce to and from Lineage, while the Calico, any of mixed racial heritage, are considered the dregs of society with no opportunity to change their lot in life, which is usually that of of servitude or slavery.
Follow the young Calico orphan, Hue, as he is forced by an attack of the vile beasts Hellfur from the protection of his hidden city of Ethni to go out into the world in search of a fragment of the mythical Onestone, which his mentor, the self-proclaimed wizard Gaunt Wheeling, assures him contains a powerful magic called Essence, and would bring ruin upon them if in the wrong hands. Stumble though the strange new purecaste worlds never before experienced by Hue as he searches for the stone to return it to Gaunt. Fraught with danger at every turn, not only from the purecaste, but also by the vile and other dangers keeping him from the fragment, Hue soon enough discovers a danger even more significant: that Gaunt may not be what he seems and has set Hue on a course destined to fail.
