This heroic space opera blends elements of science fiction, fantasy, and horror. Set in a reality not unlike our own, Fulcrum tells the tale of Letho Ferron, one of many citizens living out a mundane existence aboard a colonization/exploration vessel known as the Centennial Fulcrum.
It is life as usual for Letho Ferron until an encounter with Fulcrum law enforcement agents forces him into exile within the bowels of the ship, where he finds respite among a mysterious subservient race known as the slave bears. It is there that Letho begins to uncover the truth about the Fulcrum, the slave bears, and his own identity. When a group of terrifying marauders attack the ship, Letho is forced to decide: Will he remain a misfit, rejected by his own people? Or will he take a stand and lead both races to freedom?
