Zenith is meant to blend traditional African cultures, Afrofuturism, and shonen-anime styles for a mainstream audience.

AYA

Aya is a young warrior and daughter of one of the most prominent kings in Nadir. Her overconfidence in her abilities constantly gets her into trouble, but her heart is in the right place. She wants to be the first person in over a thousand years to claim the title of “King of Kings”.

Zed

Zed is a technological genius who hails from Zenith. Used to living a lavish lifestyle, he now must learn to survive in a land filled with wild beasts and superpowered humans in order to find rare artifacts that have fallen from Zenith. Together with Aya, he may just be able to uncover the secrets of these artifacts and return home to the land of the sky.
