Webcomic / Firefly Cross
is an Action Adventure webcomic
, created by dragonsong12. The series focuses on Katyn, a thief who becomes the latest Keeper of the mystic sword Ra'grathon, and therefore is also the latest champion of the Light in its battle against the Dark. The reluctant Katyn is assisted by Ra'yl, a Guardian bound to the sword and the Keeper; Chaerius, a dragon who spends much of his time in the form of a black cat; and a supporting cast of fellow thieves (Lissibith, Tyson, Micah, Marian, Jerrome, Tara, Trey).
