A science fiction adventure:
The maturation of
Romero de Morgan, The Greatest!
Adonis, The Magnificent Cythetic
Lola, The Heart Changeling
Jonto, The Bird-Lizard

Three planets each a vast distance apart from one another are inhabited by Homo sapiens -- humans.
Romero de Morgan, spoiled scion, and Adonis, a synthetically created “perfect” human, come from Homobirthstone, where lies the throne of a technically advanced galactic empire.
Lola, daughter of a barbarian, descendant of a past space-wreck on the out-of-the-way planet Abro, is a would-be priestess who is sacrificed to The-God-Who-Howls.
Jonto, an intelligent bird-lizard, comes from a planet, Biafra, with such extreme environmental variability that the only dominant life form must, instinctively, change probability futures via identifying and releasing key chaos triggers, a skill unsensed and unknown to humans. The bird-lizard shares adventures with Romero and Adonis.
Gifted with long-life through various happenstances, the three humans, accompanied by the Biafran bird-lizard, mature and play out their intense search for self against a vast background of an unchecked, decadant society and its apparently magical technology.
Chance has brought them all together on the planet Cairema, where once held sway and dominated an extremely technologically advanced civilization long before earth itself was populated by humans.
On Caremia human gene plasma degnerates at each generation, a hidden effect of the still functioning, but unknown, ancient technology of the former civilization.
Caremian gods must surely die, if decadance is to reverse!
But so must personal, inner gods!
