The Story So Far –How the wheels were set in motion

The Bad Kitchen was not always bad. It was never quite like the Good Kitchen, fruit roamed wild and clans governed themselves – the kitchen was abandoned and unclean – but it’s denizens got by. One day, however, the Blender arrived and threw everything into disarray. The Villainous Guavstapo emerged; conscripting everything into the monstrous machine’s army with the mysterious Horned Melon: Helon, at their head. As times grew darker, the shadowy Blackberry Clan had to make a fateful choice: to join the Blender in its crusade to dominate the Bad Kitchen – and beyond – or to rebel. Life-long rivals with the Raspberries of the Good Kitchen, hotter heads prevailed and the clan joined the Blender in the hopes that they may one day crush their rivals. At this time, the warrior known as Fennel became captain of the Guavstapo and with no heroes left to save it; the Bad Kitchen descended into what it is today. Until the Grapevine came, ushering hope into the broken world; a faint spark of better times to come… all they needed now was a champion.

In the Good Kitchen of chrome metal and shining glass, a young member of the Raspberry Vanguard, by the name of Logan, trains with his tutor, Master Dragonfruit; learning the ways of the disciplined blade but also studying the blackberries of the kitchen next door. Rumours are spreading of dark times in the Bad Kitchen however, and the Raspberries Elders are concerned for times to come.

In the Bad Kitchen, some of the Blackberry Clan rebel and find out the truth: that the Grapevine is not the bastion of hope they expected, but the puppet master behind the Blender. They are swiftly silenced, but in dealing with them Helon also uncovers the secret; much to the Grapevine’s dismay. It is here that the first wheel of the story begins to turn. Helon is told of the Raspberry Vanguard, and of one of their kind: Logan the Loganberry. Conceived in lighter times past, he possesses both powers of the Raspberry Vanguard and the Blackberry Clan. He is the one who can unite the kitchen, and if she truly serves the Grapevine she must take an army to the Good Kitchen and bring back all of the Raspberries so that they are dealt with once and for all; this champion can never come to light. The true purpose of Helon’s mission, however, is to die as the Grapevine allows no liabilities. And so our tale and the invasion begin…
