"Everyone's running from something. But the darkness can't be vanquished by distance. It can only be tempered by finding something to run towards and the promising light of new horizons."

Around The World Battle Pass

Main article: Battle Pass

When I was young, I collected rocks. I would spend hours on end, scouring empty lots and abandoned fields for just the right ones. I would examine them, turning them slowly over and over in my small hands. Some needed polishing, made smooth, and some were best left alone. Each was unique, with their own stories to tell. But I no longer collect rocks. Now I recruit people.

Like Thatcher, always threatening to retire, always there when you need him. Or Doc, already polished and smooth, ready to save the world. Ash, rough and tough as they come. Dokkaebi, a pearl in need of gentle care, waiting to shine. Buck, a lone wolf learning how to join the pack. And Mira, my keystone, without whom I'd be lost.
