My name is Safire White. I am fifteen years old, an orphan. I am an Elemental.

I control the element of fire.

I am also half-demon.

Hence the violent disposition. When the Government finds us – Thomas, the other Elementals and myself - they will probably try to kill us. Being immortal, it won’t work. But they will still try. Stupid politicians.

My life is one of those gory torture movies, a snuff film on speed. But every now and then, there are episodes of soap opera in between the bloody, screaming torture. Little human dramas that intrude on my inhuman life.

One last thing. I thought I'd warn you.

Humanity’s greatest fear is the truth.
