OK, so this is what I have:
Wedge is a helot, who really wants to be a Guardian. But as a Helot, he's the antithesis of everything the Guardians stand for. The Guardians united long ago to defeat the great beast Enzyme, and Enzyme created the Helots to destroy the Guardians. Enzyme's been gone for decades, and the helots freed from his control, but they're still reminders of a horrific past.
Not one to be deterred, Wedge sets himself to demonstrating his heroism and Guardian suitability by performing valorous deeds throughout the countryside. He protects villages from marauding beasts! He brings down tyrannical bandit families! He's tricked into breaking Enzyme's Chains! ..Wait, what?
So Wedge's really stepped in it with that last heroic deed, and Enzyme is free again. Hunted down by the Guardians as a wanted man, Wedge chases Enzyme across the world to stop him from regaining his full power and ruining any chance Wedge has of being a Guardian. But has little Wedge bitten off more than he can chew?
*Cool ending statement that simultaneously summarizes the post and buys you coffee and a donut.*
