[DEFEAT. is Rendar Frankenstein's truest attempt at fiction. Presented in weekly episodes, the novella tells the tale of Daryl Millar - a hero who dies at the intersection of pop culture, science-fiction, war epic, and fantasy]
A man is not a champion until he gazes into the eyes of his greatest adversary.
A champion is not a hero until he unflinchingly fights a battle that cannot be won.
A hero is not a legend until he is dead, buried, and more favorably misremembered.
