Will he be able to face his past when he eventually arrives to the truth behind his existence?

The Setting

Neodale, the main backdrop of this story, is also known as the City of Tomorrow. It's a very populated city bustling with rich cultures mixed with technology that has become integral in the citizens' lives. The citizens themselves are a mix of humans, aliens, and robots from all walks of life. It is also where the main headquarters of LOVECORP, the nation's biggest tech corporation, is located.

Neodale is also known for leading time travel research (also known as chronophysics), even though it's still in its infancy sometime in the early 23rd century. The two legendary pioneers that arrived in the far far present were only able to share a fraction of their research before they disappeared again. Different companies and groups tried to follow in their footsteps, but only in slow intervals. But it's only inevitable that it will be available for public use. It's very profitable after all!

Unless there were people that wanted to stop this from happening, because perhaps it MIGHT be a bad idea to take advantage of an unstable science for profit. But for now, nobody has succeeded in stopping them...
