Story


Arakmis is a former soldier of the planet Mantinesa who was unjustly accused of murder and banished to the planet Earth. He lost part of his left wing in a terrible battle and now can't fly. He is hoping the Interstellar Detective finds the real culprit because he wants to be forgiven to return to the spacecraft.
