LOST BOYS The City of Darkness By Madison J. Cawein Wide-walled it stands in heathen lands Beside a mystic sea, With streets strange-trod of many a god, And templed blasphemy. Far in the night, a rose of light It shines beside the sea; But overhead an unknown dread Impends eternally. There is a sound above, around Of music by the sea; And weird and wide the torches glide Of pagan revelry. There is a noise as of a voice That calls beneath the sea; And all the deep grows pale with sleep And vague expectancy. Then slowly up--as from a cup Seethes poison--lifts the sea; Wild mass on mass, as in black glass, The town glows fiery. Red-lit it glowers like Hell’s dark towers Set in the iron sea; And monster swarms with awful forms Roll though it cloudily. Still overhead the unknown dread, Whose shadow dyes the sea, At wrath-winged wait behind its gate Till God shall set it free. A taloned flash, an earthquake crash, And, lo! upon the sea, Black wall on wall, a giant pall, Night settles hideously. And where it burned, a rose inurned, Red in the vasty sea, The phantasm of the dread above Sits in immensity.

Kowloon Walled City

10


LOST BOYS Kowloon Walled City is the very basis for this story. It’s setting, atmosphere, architecture, history, and mythology all inform it’s scope and development. Nicknamed Hak Nam, (The City of Darkness) was located within the Kowloon district of Hong Kong, China. It was demolished in 1993 after decades of growth, before the site was finally resurrected as Kowloon Walled City park in 1996. Where only the memories and immortalized footprint of the former minimetropolis used to be housed. The population o f the City was recorded to house roughly 33,000 residents in 1987 alone. With some sources claiming the numbers reached even up to 50,000 soon after. With a population density of 1,255,000/km squared. Whereas Hong Kong’s total population density was only 6,700/km squared in 2009.

Kowloon Walled City was undoubtedly the largest slum in the world. It is described as representing the darkness of Hong Kong. From crime, to the poorest living conditions. Despite impossibly surviving and expanding over the last thousand years, the city was also well know to be saturated with crime, especially during the 1950’s to the 1970’s. When the Triad, a notorious Chinese organized crime syndicate, ruled the City. Even at the time of it’s emergence, the walled city was regarded as a six and a half acre slum. It was a legal no mans land; a notorious city of darkness and sin. During the Sung Dynasty (9601297), it was known as KuanFu Cha’ng - Kowloon. Where the site housed originally a small fort for the Imperial Soldiers who controlled the salt fields of north eastern coast of Kowloon.

During the Sung Dynasty (9601297), it was known as KuanFu Cha’ng - Kowloon. Where the site housed originally a small fort for the Imperial Soldiers who controlled the salt fields of north eastern coast of Kowloon. In 1847 a wall was constructed. It became a symbol for the occupants of Kowloon, cementing the name of the Walled City once and for all. The wall itself measuring at roughly recorded as fifteen feet wide, and thirteen feet high of granite. It held one hundred and nineteen cannons for defence against the threat of the British. Over the years, the walled city expanded into a settlement in addition to serving as a defensive structure. Surviving assaults and attacks from both outside and within it’s walls. The city is a marvel of a structure, surviving the test of time and decay. And therein lies our story...

Setting

14


LOST BOYS The shanty towns were originally the self built dwellings of the freed American slaves from the north.

The Slope is the fictional setting for the story. While constructing the story it was decided early on that the story would be set in two distinct location; a ‘nice’ and ‘bad’ city environment.

Now they serve as the still largely self built and ungoverned dwellings for the poorest residents of São Paulo. The homes are made from any available materials, ranging from wood, metal or plastics; literally any materials they can get their hands on.

The latter is The Slope, heavily based on Kowloon Walled City. While the former is loosely based on Victoria Harbour’s Central and Western District of Hong Kong.

The modern applications of favelas began to emerge from the 1970’s similarly to the modern development of Kowloon’s Walled City. Even within the favelas, crime, organized or otherwise, commonly associated with drug use, was very prevalent in the towns.

While Kowloon Walled City was situated within the main land of Hong Kong, The Slope was decided to be isolated on a small island, as if separated from the rest of the world. Which in part is the reason the city became so corrupted.

The connotations of the similarities between the favelas and the Walled City are painfully clear.

The conditions of the city are also inspired in part by the current real world equivalent of a ‘shanty metropolis’ in the form of São Paulo s favela district in Brazil, South America.

Story

22


LOST BOYS The comic is a story about a gang of young misfits getting in (way) over their heads.

The story focuses of how central characters are personally affected by the crime which rules over their city, and how they deal with it in response.

The setting is an isolated, and almost dystopian, city ruled by crime and poverty.

Even the reactions to the events which befall the characters are directly influenced by the personality of the city.

The story follows the lives of the LOST BOYS as they get themselves involved with the darker inner workings of the city.

Through the events of the story it will be easier to understand how such an environment can shape a person.

The idea for the story is born from the idea that just as Kowloon Walled City represents the crime and degradation of Hong Kong, the characters of the story represent the various aspects of the city they live in. The darkest parts, as well as the stark differences in quality of life.

To be able to see how people would act and live, or the personalities they would subsequently take on when forced to live in such an environment, with no real hope of liberation.

THE JOURNEY 23


Characters

24


LOST BOYS The characters themselves are reflections of the atmosphere and state of the city.

The basis for the characters is that they were initially inspired by the protagonists of Tekkonkinkreet a Seinen Manga by Taiyo Matsumoto, originally released between 1993 and 1994 as apart of an ongoing series. Later adapted as a feature length Anime film in 2006.

They represent the crime and corruption oft he city itself. Although conversely, they also represent the good or the hopeful aspects of the city trying their very best not to be corrupted along with everything else.

The story featured orphaned street kids who lived in a city similarly ruled by crime, trying their best to protect it.

The development and progression of the story is dependant on the exploration and development of the characters’ personalities.

They also are very similar to concept of the Lost Boys from J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan stories, which featured a group of orphaned boys who did not want to grow up and were led by Peter himself.

Each character, like all people, have differing perceptions and reactions to the world around them.

THE JOURNEY 25


MX

26


LOST BOYS Mark Alexander

My City

MX aka Max aka Fox

I need to defend it.

“The Leader “

Our territory. What else would I do?

The boisterous central protagonist of the story. MX is an orphan who grows up in a pseudo-foster care programme under the supervision of his ‘big brother’ Tedd.

There are so many cracks— So many faults—

With no real family of his own, he has developed a strong bond the city itself as if it was apart of his family.

So many problems— Who else is gonna deal with it, if not us?

Over the years he has developed relationships with several other equally troubled kids (albeit troubled for drastically different reasons than his own), and they have taken it upon themselves to declare themselves the protectors of the city.

We need to protect our home from them. If the adults won’t do it— Then it’s down to us. This is my city.

He doesn’t believe many other people have the best of intentions when they claim to be helping, so him and his team of Lost Boys have taken it upon themselves to protect the city in their own way.

And I’m it’s defender.

THE JOURNEY 27


KC

28


LOST BOYS My Family. My Home

Cacey Jun-Hallowell

This place is my home.

KC aka Cat

Your home is where your family is. You are used to the sights and smells— The patterns and the moods. They all become commonplace— Like a habit.

“The Partner “ Of the four members of the group, KC is deemed best to lead besides MX. She has a similar philosophy when it comes to who and how the city should be protected and she understands how MX regards the bonds between himself, his friends, and the city.

You don’t always have to like it— She was initially attracted to join MX due to the new role she would have in her life. She would finally have her own identity.

but you can’t choose your family. Your stuck with them.

KC is one of many children of the owners of the Jun-Hallowell Thai Restaurant which is striving within the depths of the Slope. Her siblings and cousins all work in restaurant along with her parents.

It’s where you’re safest. With what you’re familiar with. My family. My Home.

Despite coming from such a large family, she feels almost lost within them and considers herself just another face in the crowd.

THE JOURNEY 29


JR

30


LOST BOYS Jerome Logan Jr.

The Labyrinth

JR aka Junior aka Bat

We live in a maze.

“The Brains “

We move through it all the time, but we still don’t know what lies behind the next corner.

JR is undoubtedly the most ‘gifted’ of the group. His story is also the most radically different.

Each step is a gamble—

He comes from a wealthy family of three with both his mother and father, who both live and work across from The Slope in the Harbour district.

It’s just luck if we make it to next path. We’re all lost. We can decide the direction or the specific path,

He is the top of his class in school and is expected to follow in footsteps of his father working directly for Mr. Silverstone himself.

But ultimately, we’re still lost. We don’t know where the path will lead to,

JR’s life is already laid out clearly ahead of him. He joins the Lost Boys in the hopes of freeing himself and, similarly to KC, develop his own unique identity. Besides just being the best and brightest of J.M. Barrie Academy and succeeding the Logan name.

Or when we’ll reach the end. We’re just moving around blind. Lost in the chaos and the darkness.

THE JOURNEY 31


GT

32


LOST BOYS Grant Kent

The Light

GT aka Bear

I see the lights, where others see darkness.

“The Muscle “ Things aren’t always as bad as they seem.

GT is the one who keeps the group together. He has a very innocent positive outlook on life and greatly appreciates being apart of the Lost Boys, as much as the others.

There is a whole world to explore down here— And so many people who want to share their light.

He doesn’t come from a particularly financially stable home, living only with his mother, not knowing his father his entire life.

But not everyone see’s things the same. Sometimes the lights go out for them.

His school life was also not a very positive environment for him as he was constantly picked on by the other students. Mostly for being bigger than everyone else, but for also not being the brightest in the class.

They can’t see anything— Or find anyone— Only darkness. That’s my job.

Though he was bullied a lot initially, he never lashed out against others and always seemed quite happy.

I’m there to help— And to guide others to light just beyond.

He was eventually befriended by MX when MX took it upon himself to protect GT from a certain group of troublemakers.

THE JOURNEY 33


Tedd

34


LOST BOYS Theodore Alexander

Onwards and Upwards Things change.

Tedd aka Teddy

The world improves itself.

MX’s older ‘brother’. He is in reality MX’s foster brother who recently became MX’s legal guardian, living in a home provided by the city’s social care programme.

People die. What comes next is down to us. We can lay down the foundations of our future —

He was raised by MX’s father along with MX and Cyn so he feels he is MX’s real family. When their father died, Tedd made it his personal duty to always look after MX and keep him safe (a task which proves far too difficult to keep on a daily basis).

And build up from there. It was his job to help us up into world — And now it’s my turn. I’ll help to build him up — To maintain him. He’ll go far if I let him. The only way out, is up.

THE JOURNEY 35


Cyn

36


LOST BOYS Cynthia Alexander

The Plan Things don’t always go according to plan.

Cyn aka Sin Despite being MX’s older sister, she hasn’t been apart of MX’s life ever since their father died. Even MX was far too young to feel much of a familial bind between them.

You can’t plot out every detail without knowing all the facts. I had to do what was best — For us —

Cyn currently works as a personal aid to Mr. Silverstone. Working far too close to the controlling corruption of the city.

For him. He’ll get there eventually. And if he does, then I’ll join him.

Despite her strained relationship with Tedd and MX, she still never fails to set aside some money for MX to live on. Whether he knows it or not.

For now — This is where I belong — Right between the cracks — Planning out as I go.

THE JOURNEY 37


Mr. Silverstone

38


LOST BOYS Dominic Silverstone

The Kingdom and the Prison

The Tortoise of the North

This is my Kingdom and my prison

“The Brains “

Every acre— Every square inch of this place, is mine to control as I see fit.

Silverstone is a wealthy philanthropist who, along with his wife, took it upon themselves to clean up The Slope.

Nobody takes a step out of line without me knowing about.

They arrived in the Harbour District about 15 years prior with intentions to ‘clean up’ the streets.

For all they know, I’m behind every door-

Silverstone primarily focused on creating better living conditions for the residents. Including safer and better environments for the youths in the city.

Beyond every corner. I am always and everywhere. Never anywhere else.

Eventually he met and partnered with Daisuke Matsumoto, an existing wealthy business tycoon who was the existing sole financier of The Slope.

This is my prison— And I am the warden. This is my kingdom—

Eventually, through this pairing, Silverstone became heavily involved with the hierarchy of crime which controlled the city, falling deeper and deeper in darkness. Despite his best efforts.

And I am the King.

He now believes that the best way to protect the city is from within the belly of the beast itself.

THE JOURNEY 39


Mrs. Silverstone

40


LOST BOYS Patience

Wendy Silverstone

It’s takes a great belief to see what God intended for us.

The Tigress of the West “The Partner “

It would be so easy to ignore Him.

The estranged wife of Silverstone.

Too easy to go about our lives, without goodness at all.

While no longer as personally involved in the affairs of The Slope, she is still an equal party shareholder of the trio that is the private council who fund the development of the Slope.

I waited for Him and saw my place. The ones furthest from His light are the ones who shield themselves with their own darkness. My place is to help others return to HimTo help others to believe in His miracles. But that requires me to guide whoever I can through their own darkness, labyrinth, or prison. It requires a great belief and patience to do His work.

When she and Mr. Silverstone originally arrived in the Slope, she focused on mainly targeting and helping individuals personally affected by the crime and conditions of the Slope. Including victims of drugs or violence. While her husband noticeably began his decent into the corruption of the city, Wendy made the decision to take a step back from her self appointed duties, worrying for her safety as she was now out numbered two to one. Her husband, didn’t follow the same action and they soon drifted part.

THE JOURNEY 41


Mr. Matsumoto

42


LOST BOYS My Empire. My Legacy

Daisuke Matsumoto

Everything is within my control.

The Dragon of the East

My power cannot be stifled.

“The Muscle “

I will build my empire —

The rumoured notorious crime boss of crime syndicate operating within the Harbour District and The Slope.

My legacy. I will live on in through all that I control.

Before the Silverstones appeared he was the sole private financier of The Slope. As the city was ungoverned, and more or less abandoned the government, Matsumoto saw it as an opportunity to expand his empire the one place he would have no challengers.

My achievements will stand tall for the world too see — For al to remember — And for all to fear. I will live on. My legacy — My empire.

THE JOURNEY 43


Mr. Alexander

44


LOST BOYS Peter Alexander

Home Never let go of where you come from.

The Phoenix of the South “The Leader “

Your home is where your fondest memories have been embeded.

The deceased father of MX, Cyn, and Tedd.

The ground —

Former business partner of both Mr. and Mrs. Silverstone, as well as Mr. Matsumoto.

The walls — Your entire surroundings are saturated with memories of who you were.

Along with his former business partners, he was one of the four ‘Great Beasts’ who controlled The Slope ten years prior to his death.

Your memories are what make you safe — They are what you return to when the world lets you down. Never let go of where you came from. Remeber your home.

THE JOURNEY 45


The Masqueraders

46


LOST BOYS The Masqueraders

A Job We go where we are needed.

Not much is known about Mr. Silverstone’s aptly named ‘Masqueraders’.

Wherever he needs work done. Our services cover all aspects of his territory.

Their identities are known only to Mr. Silverstone himself.

Wherever —

All that is known about them is that they carry out Mr. Siilverstone’s dirty work, with nothing but a smile on their cold faces...

Whenever — We go. And what we get the job done.
