Sebastian Hiram Shaw was born with a rusted spoon in his mouth and holy fire raging in his belly. Not a religious man, but a man of boundless faith. In his hopes… his dreams… himself. The German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche once posited that whatever fails to kill a man only serves make him stronger. He dubbed this mythical survivor the Übermench. An ideal personified… by a poor boy from Pennsylvania.
