Nature of the Beast/The K-9/TBD
Written by Nicholas Lovell Timmons

Chimeras; human animal hybrid technology is at the forefront of scientific discovery. The instincts and abilities of any animal combined with the superior cognitive ability of the human. Many believed this power to be the next step in evolution, others wanted to use it for destruction. Regardless of intentions, the transformation process proved difficult to overcome. It is said that 1 in every 10,000 survives the transformation process.

With the technology to create chimeras no longer a secret, chimeras were created all across the world despite the high number of failures. Chimeras were traded, captured, and trained. Wicked rulers and military powers abused chimeras for their personal gain. Utilizing strength, speed, and abilities unbeknownst to mankind, the world was at war.

A rogue missile into the heart of a super volcano sparked the chaos. Mother Earth began to burn... Fires raged across the land! The Infernal War it was called, a battle for resources and territory the world had not seen since ancient times. The power to create Chimeras would be the catalyst.

After laying waste to over half the population, and natural resources, the fire finally died out. What happened next nobody could have predicted. Mother Earth was reborn. Green once again covered the land. A fresh start. Trees, vegetation, water, resources. New tribes, countries, and societies formed in the aftermath of The Infernal War, but unfortunately the fighting had only just begun.

Inside the United Front, a well fortified haven for chimeras and humans alike, tensions are rising. With the world still reeling in chaos, a specialized unit, The K-9, vowing to protect those who cannot protect themselves have set up Head-Quarters inside the United Front's walls.

Will the world use this new beginning and avoid the mistakes of their past? Or will society fall into a similar pattern of destruction?

Chapter 1:
Page 1:
Full page of part of a large city. The full city is probably close to the size of Chicago, maybe bigger. Slightly modern, slightly broken. Plants and trees growing out of the buildings, but it does not look damaged. There is a wall around the entire city that is about 5-6 stories tall. It is a thick concrete wall. Plants and trees grow out of the wall as well. It’s raining.

Box: United Front, 2052, post Infernal War

Full page of a brick alley. Trash bins and puddles and gutters. It’s dark out, raining. Dash, (6’4”, athletic build) is covered in a long cloak and wearing black boots. POV is from behind Dash. He stands at the end of the alley. You can only see his silhouette. Lightning flash if possible.

Dash: “They are all yours, Matador. I’ll assume the assets are downstairs. I’ll let him know you delivered what was promised. We will send our man over shortly.” “I’m going to go ahead and leave out the back. Do try to finish this quickly.”


P4: Close-up of Dash. Eyes open and concentrating.

Dash: *I doubt Matador can even hear me right now. When he loses control, he goes into some sort of hyper-focus. To be honest, I don’t even think it is possible to get him to stop once he’s got his eyes set on you. And I certainly don’t want to be around when THEY show up.

P5: POV is from behind the guards in the entrance. Lieutenant is in the very back. Matador halfway down the carpet to the entrance now. Matador looks massive compared to the humans. Killing is the only thing on his mind.

P2: Corso (Half-man, Half Cane-Corso. All black fur. Strong. 6’1 tall 250 pounds.) is laying back on a bench, smiling, one leg hanging off the bench, one knee up on the bench. Chi is behind him pleading.

Corso: “He’s not a pet, Chi”

Chi: “I know but it gets so lonely sometimes when you guys are all off on missions. And I’d train him myself!”

P3: Close-up of Corso, smiling

Corso: “Again, not a pet, bro.”

Page 3:

Corso: “They aren’t worth the fight.”

P3: Nomsa facing away from everyone in the room. POV is facing Nomsa, everyone else is behind her.

Nomsa: “Corso is right, boss. We should have called the police and let them handle it.”

P4: Corso is bolstered by Nomsa agreeing with him. Corso opens his eyes and sits up again and is more enthusiastic about what he is saying.

Corso: “We should bring them back. We can drop them at the station. If we drop them off before they wake up, we won’t have to worry about anyone knowing the location of our HQ.”

P5: Nomsa is now more enthusiastic because Corso is agreeing with her. Nomsa turns to the rest of the group.

Nomsa: “I agree, boss. We should bring them back.”

P6: a closer up view of Koda’s back as he is still facing away from the group. He is starting to get annoyed.

Corso: “I’ll go start the car!”

Page 6:
Koda turns around. Pissed off.

Koda: “Leave them to the police!? Bring them back to the street!? That woman won’t last another twenty minutes without our help.”

P2: Otto leans against the wall next to the doorway and lights a cigarette. He is looking down with his eyes closed the entire time.

Koda: “You want us to give up on her life, so you can feel more comfortable?”

P3: Nomsa is looking down, sad.

P4: Corso is still upset.

Corso: “Think about what we are doing here. We can’t have outsiders knowing where we live! It puts everyone at jeopardy!”

P5: Koda walks over to Corso. They stand face to face.

Koda: “Good question, Corso… What are we doing here?!”

Page 7:
Koda is exiting the room. Otto is leaning against the wall to the right of the door. Corso is to the left of the door, barking at Koda as Koda is out the door. Nomsa is at her station to the back right of the room near Corso. Chi is scared and at Koda’s station on the back left side of the room.

P2: Koda handing over scissors to Quincy.

P3: Quincy concentrating.

Quincy: “She is stable. For now. I’ve stopped her from losing any more blood. But…”

P4: View of the entire room. You can see the mom on the operating table. A lot of blood around. It doesn’t look good. You can see medical equipment around. Quincy and Koda can be seen in the panel.

Koda: “What is it?”

Quincy: “A lot of her body, it’s torn up from the crash.”

P5: close up of Quincy worried and turned to Koda.

Quincy: “If I can’t get her remedy, she is not going to make it.”

Page 10:
P1: close up of Koda his arms folded.

Koda: “If I get her remedy, you can help her live?”

P2: Quincy wiping sweat from her head with her elbow.

Quincy: “The remedy itself is like an accelerant for blood vessels. Lost blood is regenerated more quickly, and even damaged parts of the body are repaired.”

P3: Mom on the operating table.

Quincy: “If you get me some remedy, I can keep her alive.”

P4: A clock on the wall.

Quincy: “Only problem is that I estimate she has less than three hours. Maybe more depending on her willpower.”

Page 11:

P1: Big square panel of Otto, Nomsa, Corso, and Chi are all in the equipment room. Otto is relaxing in a reclining chair on the very left side when you enter the room, pretending to sleep. Nomsa is cleaning her pistol at her station. Corso is standing, talking to Nomsa.

Nomsa: “All I’m saying is that there is some shady *censored* going on in the United Front. Someone doesn’t like us chimeras being here.”

Corso: “Damn humans. We are always cleaning up their messes. This city would be in complete chaos if it wasn’t for us. They just can’t get over the fact that we WANT to help them.”

P2: Corso lays down on his bench. His mind wandering. He is not mad about the humans being at HQ anymore. His eyes are open.

Corso: “And now you and Otto tell me that somebody high up is pulling on the strings of police and orderin’ em around… Sounds to me like they are trying to make the rest of us chimeras look like the problem.”

P3: Same view of Corso on the bench only his eyes are closed.

Corso: “Things just keep getting’ more and more messed up.”

P4: Chi is freaking out.

Chi: “What are we gonna do? We can’t fight against the whole city.”

P5: Corso to Chi in a joking way.

Corso: “You don’t need to worry, Chi. Nobody is fighting anyone. Least of all a Chihuahua.”

P6: Otto, pretending to sleep, smiles.

Page 12:
P1: aerial view of equipment room, Koda enters the room where Otto, Nomsa, Chi, and Corso are waiting.

Nomsa: “How are they doing, boss?”

Koda: “The boy is gonna be alright. A few minor fractures and some cuts. He is still unconscious from the crash, but he should wake up soon.”

Corso: “Thank goodness. And the woman?”

P2: Koda looks down

Koda: “The woman is in critical condition… She has less than three hours to live.”

P3: Koda walks over to his equipment and starts putting on his vest.

Koda: “She needs remedy and some other supplies that we don’t have…”

P4: Koda putting his pistol and his small knife into holsters on his right and left side of his body respectfully. A few other of his weapons can be seen hanging on the wall in the background.

P5: Koda facing the group looking down. He is sad, but determined

Koda: “I have an idea of where to get it. I’m not going to force any of you to come with me. I already ask enough of you as it is. If we get caught, we will be branded an enemy of the state…”

P6: Koda looks up at the group

Koda: “I know this woman is not our responsibility. I can’t sit around and do nothing.”

Page 13:
P1: Otto, Nomsa, Corso and Chi standing next to each other. Geared up and ready to go. Chi is smiling, eyes closed, one-hand on back of head.

Otto: “You are going to need someone to drive you.”

Corso: “And If any fighting breaks out, you are going to need me.”

Chi: “I’ll stay here in case the boy wakes up.”

Page 14:
P1: A picture of a car speeding down a road. It is still raining. Otto, Nomsa, Corso, and Koda are in the car, but you don’t need to see them yet.

Nomsa: “Where are we headed, boss?”

Koda: “There is a good chance that we will find some remedy and some medical equipment at Matador’s barn.”

P2: Otto, Nomsa, Corso, and Koda in the car. Koda and Otto are in the front seat. Nomsa looking down at her gear.

Nomsa: “Back into the bull’s ring? Are you crazy? We could have brought more gear.”

Koda: “We saw Matador take off. He’s not going back. It’s too hot. The whole place will be under surveillance soon.”

P3: Koda looking at Otto.

Koda: “I’m guessing there is a good chance he took off before he could clean the place up.”

Otto: “That’s where we will find the remedy.”

Koda: “It’s risky, but it’s our best bet.”

P4: The car turning down a different road.

Page 15:
P1: Side view of Corso

Corso: “About this light resistance you mentioned. Who do you think we will be fighting?”

P3: Close up of Koda

Koda: “In any case, I’m hoping that we can get there first.”

P4: Corso and Nomsa in the backseat. Corso is grinning and waving one of his pistols. Nomsa has her arms crossed and is irritated by Corso.

Corso: “Oh hell yeah. They won’t know what *censored*ing hit em!”

Nomsa: “Could you try not to celebrate? If we don’t make it back in time, that woman is going to die. Not to mention the fact that we are putting ourselves in danger too.”

Page 16:

P1: View of Corso in back seat. Corso makes a baby face and rests his head on his gun, “Kane”, as he talks to it.

Corso: “Hear that, Kane? It sounds like someone doesn’t know how to have any fun.”

Nomsa: “That has nothing to do with it! I just think you should be more serious.” “And what kind of name is Kane?”

P3: View of Corso looking bafflingly at Nomsa.

Corso: “You know, “Kane” as in “Warrior”. Plus, I’m part Cane Corso...” “Do I have to explain everything out for you?”

P4: wide view of Corso and Nomsa. Corso is sticking his tongue out at Nomsa and looking at her like she is dumb. Nomsa has a “whatever” look on her face.

Page 17:
P1: close up, Nomsa turns and talks to her own pistol.

Nomsa: “It’s ok “Ana”, don’t listen to the mean puppy.”

P2: View of Corso in back seat. Corso turns to face forward and scoffs again, this time with his eyes closed.

Corso: “You make fun of me for Kane? What the hell kind of name for a pistol is Ana?”

P3: Corso gets slapped.


P4: Close up of Nomsa, smiling. Corso looks speechless. There is a red hand print on Corso’s face.

Nomsa: “You want Anather?”

Page 18:

P2: close up of Otto leaning forward. Nomsa and Corso in the background still butting heads but cartoony version.

Corso: “This is his hideout?”

Otto: “Was his hideout.”

*I reserve all rights to any characters, locations, and ideas in the English Manga Manuscript (Nature of the Beast/The K-9/TBD) that was written by me, Nicholas Lovell Timmons, and posted to MangaRaiders. (1/31/2020)

I wrote this with hopes of submitting it to Viz Media Originals. I still plan on submitting, though I wanted the people at MangaRaiders to be able to read some of it first. In the event that my writing does not get noticed by Viz Media, I hope to find an artist or a publisher that does take interest in my writing. Any artists interested in collaborating with me, feel free to message me directly. I am interested in potentially turning this (among other ideas) into a web comic.

Please do not reply with any suggestions or ideas unless grammatical or regarding format.
Do feel free to let me know what you think.
I will continue to update with the more interest I get.

Thank you for taking the time to read my work. I hope you enjoy it.

P4: closer view of Gianna and Quincy

Gianna: “What will happen if the humans blame us for something we didn’t do?”

Page 22:
Jameson mumbles something and Quincy looks quizzically at Jameson.

SFX: mumble

I had hoped to keep all of the chapters near the top. I exceeded the character limit for the first post. Hopefully I will be able to post 3 chapters per post from now on. Not all at the same time of course.

Please let me know if you are reading this.
