This fan-fic takes place roughly four years after the end of Season One. Zarkon has remained missing since his defeat at the hands of Voltron, and rumors as to what has happened to him range from his death in exile to his eventual return to the throne of Doom. Lotor has assumed the throne as King in his father's absence, and so far he has managed to maintain control of the Empire with the aid of Modru, a royal counselor under King Zarkon's rule. Modru survived Lotor's purging of his father's advisors and remains in service to him to help him keep things running smoothly.
Lotor hasn't given up on his desire for Allura, however, especially now that he's King. He is more determined than ever to have her as his Queen. Hagar remains a regular at Castle Doom, and she has been plotting Voltron's demise as usual. While Lotor has accepted her decision to stay and work for him, he hasn't forgotten her former loyalty to his father, and he dwells in a near-continual fear that the old witch could turn on him at any time.
|Lotor's biggest problem to date has been to maintain his sources of lazon to power his mighty fleets. The source of all his trouble with keeping the lazon flowing smoothly is an old enemy from long ago; Bandor's older brother has recovered from his robeast transformation and, after many years of recovery on a remote island, has returned to assume the throne. Avok hasn't forgotten what Doom did to his world and what Lotor did to his sister. He has sworn revenge for both and he works tirelessly on the fringes of the Doom Empire to unravel Lotor's control, planet by planet. With the help of a former Voltron pilot, he has been smuggling weapons and other supplies to any and all who would rebel against Lotor's rule, with his most recent efforts turned toward Marlowe, a planet rich in lazon and one of Lotor's chief sources of the fuel. Because of these continual clashes with Avok, Lotor's attention to Arus has been close to nil, especially for the last couple of years.|
|On Arus, Allura has taken advantage of the temporary peace to establish new laws and invest her personal wealth into planetary development on several levels to make Arus a more modern world. Keith has been busy as well, taking his own steps to develop a planetary defense force and convert the Flying Fortress into an orbital platform named Arus One. In this way, he hopes to protect what Allura is working so hard to build for her people.|
