In a world where fear is a disease, and disease is control, it took but a single push upon tiresome shoulders (the murdering of a young child by the hands of the TRITE terrorist organization) to snap Daniel Sathers - son of the esteemed Admiral Sathers - into quintessence, as he gradually learns that the emotion he has seen as a disease for so long, may be the only way to survive the horrors that lay outside of The Wall.
Ryan McClellan (1989-Present) was born and raised in Miami, Florida, once known as the Sunshine State, now slowly decaying beneath the depths of fallen angels and a city of godlessness, deception, and hate. As a child, McClellan was always the stand-out student, writing to a remarkable degree and leaving in his path a trail of awestruck teachers and students. Upon Freshman year in high school, McClellan was accurately diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, and ADHD, all of which assimilated themselves (very clearly) within his writings. Aside from the works of INDEPEND, McClellan was also the pen that fueled his prior works: The Unfortunate Side of Beauty: Sadist Hits - a series of poems and rants, revealing even darker times of McClellan's years. As of 2012, McClellan began writing for DISfunkshion Magazine as a Contributing Columnist, and has published several articles through them. He has recently undertaken a position at Modern Man Jack, where weekly articles are submitted. McClellan plans on re-releasing INDEPEND, featuring the (full) first story.
