a short story for the Brooklyn Art library's Sketchbook project written by allie lyke with original illustrations by neko harris
at the end of the american civil war, the south's top white elitists, the original twelve, force native americans to turn all Black slaves into ferocious beasts that are used to takeover the world. fast forward to 2020, where the descendants of the twelve (twelves) are in total control. but, thanks to the Light Family legacy, Beasts have slowly begun to assimilate into society. Their youngest member, a bouda named Dawn, is on the brink of discovering her true purpose as she joins the fight against Twelve injustice--soon realizing that she is the next in line to lead her people towards total Beast liberation.
