It follows the adventures of the titular eponymous Pandora and her partner in crime Ian, both terrorists attempting to overthrow the iron-fisted regime of a government known as the Global Empire, GE for short.

Pandora Tainted is not a warning about some flaw in humanity that brought them down, nor is it an uplifting story about man’s undying spirit and his will to fight for what he believes in. The citizens of Eden did nothing to deserve what is happening to them, and have been worn down, their entirely lives reduced to tunnel vision. They don’t even notice that they are being massacred for what seems to be no reason at all. I suppose that I have to sum things up, so here goes; Pandora Tainted is a story about evil, injustice, and hypocrisy, and what those things make people do, the good and the bad.

And it also thinks very highly of itself (or I was just lazy and copy-pasted the 'About' page from the site.
