Second: Does this adoption circumstances sound plausible enough?
The main character's mom was eighteen (his father twenty six, consensual I assure you) when she had him. She was afraid that she might ruin his father's reputation, (he has a quite a reputation in the field of psychology) she never tells him about it. She originally considers just raising him in secret, but because of fear of being discovered, she drops him off at an orphanage, swearing that she would come back for him.
Six years later, after she marries his father, she asks him to adopt a child, which he easily approves (being a Nice Guy
and all), and when she returns to the orphanage, she recognizes him (she visits there occasionally) and also adopts a girl who her son treats as if his sister.
Really, I'm not sure that's plausible or not and I really hope it doesn't sound like something out of a bad Soap Opera
Well, my verse is a society where magic has been interacting with science, long enough to be another branch of it, and like all good technology, there are people who are out to use it for nefarious purpose.
One of the most popular and infamous crimes of my verse includes making drugs that is extremely
intoxicating, addicting, and boosts power of Augmenters (that's the term for magicians in my verse) users. Another is human trafficking, mostly for extracting ESP (also refers to Mana
) directly from human, which can result in very high quality and density ESP that can be traded for high price.
To prevent any magical and non magical crimes, UN and United Augmenters Alliance created the Mediators, an anti-terrorist/special criminals organization. The squad members mentioned above are part of Pacific Ocean Division and after getting report of secret base in this island
