RESOLUTION is the tale of Xaan Maddox, a legendary member of the outer-space corps of heroes known as The Resolute. Now retired, Xaan Maddox has withdrawn to a remote world in solitude. Having quit THE RESOLUTE to live out her retirement on a remote world, she tends floating gravity seas, harvesting fish to scratch out a living. It’s the simple, solitary life she wants.

But former comrades arrive and attempt to recruit her to again don the exo-suit, so they can bring to justice an alien warlord who is Xaan’s former arch-nemesis. What follows forces Xaan to confront her own past, and places the entire universe in deadly peril.THE RESOLUTE is a cosmic peacekeeping force, with members recruited from a vast array of worlds, administered by mysterious alien species known as THE HILT. Agents of the RESOLUTE are called BLADES.

Once recruited, young cadets undergo The Process, during which they are bonded with an exo-suit, fitted with skin-jacks embedded at the base of the neck, spine, wrists, and ankles. The exo-suit becomes part of each recruit, remaining bonded for life. The exo-suit can be summoned at will, generated by the skin-jacks.

The suits transmute cosmic energy called Dark Matter, granting the ability to survive the vacuum of space, super-strength and resilience, and the ability to generate energy weapons and blasts. BLADES have protected the universe time and time again. Xaan Maddox was the greatest of them. Perhaps she will be again…
