Prologue The year 2105 . Following the decline of nations, the world was split into hundreds of trading organisations . With the temptations of further benefits, hundreds of trading organisations decided to combine and form trade cartels . The Solaris Federation, the most powerful of them all, has control over 30% of the global economy . It can be said that the Solaris Federation’s leader holds the most power in the world . It wasn’t that no one tried to overthrow the Solaris Federation, but that Devon Solaris, it’s leader, was always one step ahead of his opposition . He would destroy his opponent before they even became a threat . The hunter became the hunted: just before the critical moment, those plotting against him found themselves in Devon Solaris’ crosshairs . Every rival would curse about how close there were to success . . . but that they were ruined at the very last moment . Not just once or twice, this happened each and every time . In time, the people realised it wasn’t a coincidence, or divine intervention . It was just that Devon Solaris had complete control . He held everything in the palm of his hand . Every opponent who tried to cross him swore they would never go against him again . No conspiracy or coup d'etat could escape him . His dominance was absolute . In this world, he was likened to God . He could not be defeated . The people called this legendary man the ‘Solaris Emperor’ .

“Gege, I’m coming in!” Daren opened the door to Devon’s study . He sneakily popped his head in through the door with the cutest smile on his face . “Are you busy, Gege?” he asked gently . Nearly buried in documents, Devon lifted his head the moment he heard his little brother’s voice .  “Of course not . Come on in . ” He abandoned his work and left his secretary on the line without a care . Smiling, he asked, “Dar, tell your brother--are you in a good mood today?” “I’m happy!” Daren took two bounding leaps and jumped into Devon’s arms . “Really?” Devon smiled as he hugged his precious little brother . He ruffled the youth’s hair affectionately as he doted on him . “What did you do today? Why are you so happy? Hurry and tell Gege . Was it because school was really fun?” Daren tilted his head to the side cutely . “Dar didn’t go to school! Gege, you forgot again!” he teased . “I was at home playing with Doctor Avery . ” Devon stiffened . Pretending nothing was wrong, he replied, “Is that so? Sorry, Gege didn’t remember . ” “No problem,” Daren said, beaming . Knock knock… Devon raised his head . The door to the study wasn’t closed; the person on the other side knocked merely out of courtesy . At the doorway stood the other Daren . From his looks to his body language, the other Daren was exactly the same as the Daren in his arms . The only difference was that the Daren next to him was smiling cheerfully . Even seeing an exact double of himself didn’t faze his smile . However, the face of the Daren at the door possessed no expression, and half of his body was hidden by the shadows cast by the slightly ajar door . Devon stared at the Daren by the door and then looked at the Daren smiling brightly beside him . He opened up his mouth but could not utter a word . “Dar!” Avery shouted, panting for breath as he rushing to the doorway after the other Daren . From the corner of his eye, he quickly scanned the Devon and Daren in the study, before he patted the other Daren’s shoulder . “You return to the science lab first,” he said gently . “I’ll go and do a check up on you after . ” “Yes . ” The Daren by the door expressionlessly nodded his head and turned to leave . Next, Avery looked at the Daren inside the study . “DSII, you leave as well . Go back to the experimental lab,” he ordered with a businesslike voice . Daren—or, rather, the one who was called DSII—nodded his head and followed . From beginning to end he kept his cute smile on his face . Once the two duplicates left, only the Solaris Emeror and Avery were left in the study . Avery looked at the Emperor flatly . “Solaris Emperor, I activated the modified human clone of Dar—the DSII—in order to experiment on restoring him back to his normal self,” he criticised disapprovingly . “I didn’t do it for you to think of him as Dar’s replacement!” After Devon recovered from his stunned state, he flew into a rage . He drew his handgun and pointed it straight at Avery’s face . “I know what I’m doing! I don’t need you to tell me!” he yelled, furious . Avery looked at him coldly for a moment . “Put down your gun,” he said . “Guns can go off accidentally . If it were the past and it really did accidentally fire, I wouldn’t mind even if I really died . However, the situation at present is quite different . If I were to die, Dar would share my fate . I believe you would not want to see that happen . ” Devon’s expression stiffened, and he slowly lowered the gun . Seeing this, Avery’s cold expression relaxed . At least this guy still cares a lot about Dar, he thought to himself . “Solaris Emperor, don’t think of DSII as Dar,” he reminded him kindly . “If you’re nice to DSII, that would mean hurting Dar . Although, at present, he is keeping up this expressionless and heartless Dark Sun impression . No one knows whether he really has no emotions left—” “I know! Of course I understand that!” Devon barked, interrupting him as he ruthlessly threw the handgun across the room . He turned back and bellowed at Avery, “I don’t want to hurt him, either . But I really want to see his smile . I just want to see that . But he won’t smile no matter what . He won’t smile!” Avery sighed . In reality, the real Daren could still smile, but it was only if he were ordered to . That smile definitely wasn’t the one that Devon wanted to see . Seeing that mechanical smile would only make his heart hurt even more . It would only make him think about why Daren became that way . And a large part of the reason was because of his own poor decisions . “I’m going to continue with my experiments . ” Avery had wracked his brains; the only thing he could think to do to solve this predicament was try and wake Dar up as soon as possible . That was the only way . Devon nodded in agreement for a moment before he abruptly realised who Avery was experimenting on . He thought about the aftermath of those corpses he had experimented on and how their limbs had been torn apart and broken… “Don’t hurt DSII!” he couldn’t help but say . Avery stopped in his tracks . He turned around and looked at him, a frown growing on his face . Devon struggled to find a reason . “He…He looks too similar to Dar . It’s only because of that…” Avery was silent . He nodded . “I’ll try my best . ” Then he walked out and closed the door behind him . Devon fell loudly back onto his black office chair . This chair was crafted in accordance with the standards in ergonomics . It was made to reduce fatigue to a minimum, and make sure that the person sitting in it would have a healthy body . It was an expensive chair that a normal person would never be able to afford in their lifetime . However, at this moment, it was as uncomfortable as a broken chair abandoned to become garbage . It was elegant and it was out of reach from others . But it was icily cold, with no colour to it . It was also separate . Alone . Like the position of Solaris Emperor . The seat’s owner buried his face in his hands . “Didi…Dar, sorry . I’m so sorry,” he murmured .
