Stygius Ghenghis Brian Anthrax Doom Inferno is just like any other 10-year-old boy, with just a couple of minor differences. Firstly he has blue hair. Secondly - two hearts. Thirdly he is the Emperor of Nefaria, which is a star system consisting of one really nice world, another OK one and then some horrible others mainly used to threaten to send naughty children to.
Oh dear - that's 3 already, and I haven't even mentioned the most important one, which is that his homework is to prove himself so ruthless and scary that everyone in his Empire and beyond will frightened of him. It's judged by the Baddest of the Bad awards - the only important rating of ruthlessness and scariness in the galaxy And it's due really really soon.
Join Stygius as he and St3v3 - his android butler - journey through the galaxy on an epic quest to worsen his reputation in the most enjoyable and lazy ways he can find. His journey will take him through spectacular and spectacularly unfair sporting competitions, spectacularly lethal talent shows, and to scheming villains and despots who are far more eager to prove they are worthy of their evil reputations than Stygius is.
This story is part one of a two part series and is aimed at anyone from the age of 8 to 88.
