Eyes open, sharp, frantic breaths escaping the fourteen year old. Edge was in pain. A snarling, quadropedal monstrosity stood before him. His spiked black hair was blown by the creature's roar. He swallowed thickly, feeling sick. He could be up on the sky city Starlight, but for some reason he had wanted to journey to the surface to study what remained of life. Was it true? Were the only living beings on the polluted earth terrible monsters? Edge refused to believe that, much as he refused to die here, on the dump that humans used to live on. Adrenaling pulsing through him, the boy took off running. He was dressed warmly, with knee high boots and thick gloves to finish off his look. His hair was black, but dark blue at the tips. He was slightly tanned, and bright purple eyes blinked against the wind. He wasn't too tall, standing at 5''9. Edgewas far from skinny, but he was lithe and agile.

The human cried out in pain as warm blood dripped from new wounds on his arm. Fighting back tears, Edge gritted his teeth together. "Is this... the end?"
