However, his uncle, The Dragit, claims that their dying planet ought to invade Earth, conquer the bellicose humans, and take hold of its resources. Cale refuses and a civil war breaks out.Cale and his bodyguard/trainer/trusted friend Rafe escape to the Utah desert where Cale is rescued by Rita Carter, a human woman, who guides the Tyrusians through human living and becomes a Love Interest for Cale. After a few years of hiding on Earth, Cale returns to Tyrus to lead the loyalist forces (the Ooshati) that have organized, leaving Rita and their young son, David, under Rafe's protection.In the present day, when the Dragit finally finds the family, he is determined to kill them, and David Carter's teenage life is thrown into a devastating adventure of stopping the Dragit, losing and gaining friends, and finding out just who he is.
