Ch0n is a cloned space commando marooned accidentally on a resource-rich, earth-like planet inhabited by strange plants, mammals, reptiles, birds and iron-age humanoid sapients when his landing craft crashes and his companions are all killed.. He is ordered by the commander of the mother ship to log everything he sees, does and finds during the estimated seven years a rescue mission will take. Chon finds himself reluctantly involved in an inter-tribal war that sees him deploy his far superior weaponry and tactical know-how in an attempt to unite the three warring tribes, the Arw'an,Buq'ue and Matang. Aided by the knight, Jez and the beautiful but ruthless amazon, Karin, he manipulates his enemies into a final grand battle to defend his fortress against the Matang king's armies. In doing so, he hopes to realize his dream to establish a united kingdom where he may spend his time on the planet in peace. Unbeknownst to him, the experience of being a warrior-king tempers him over time until he realizes his destiny is to take the woman, Karin as his wife and to defend the kingdom against any and all opposition. Ch0n's chronicles take us meticulously though the unfolding situation between the three tribes to the final battle that will decide whether Chon himself lives or dies and whether or not the once-nomadic Arw'an will be enslaved in their own lands. These are the first Chronicles of the Arw'an, finally released after to Earth explorers by the High Priest Temen of the Ename, a fierce maritime tribe that appears in the second Chronicles.
