Graduating from her Alma Mater as a veritable genius at the tender age of twelve, Grace drove her math teacher crazy by proving to him that his “fantastic” Kline theorem fell apart on one simple arithmetic error on the fifth page. Using the laboratory’s comptometer, she reinvented computer science and became Riotspolis's first Steampunk computer scientist. Thanks to her new LENI calculator, she is now helping her only friend, Dr Copernica, find the formula that can stabilize thermonium on the right frequency to avoid random explosions.
It was during recent work on the new Clint City subway line that the underground shelter, housing Riotspolis, was drilled apart. This Utopian city, dreamt up by wise men at the turn of the century, could now wave goodbye to its tranquility and isolation. Unsurprisingly upset by this turn of events, the Riotsville Council, led by the Patriarch Pericles, decided that the time had come for them to at last emerge from their isolation and impose their “wise rulings” on this barbaric bunch of hoodlums inhabiting the surface.
