The year is 2100 and human life has been divided into two societal groups, the Inferiors and the Superiors, ten Corporate Guardians rule the world and maintain a delicate equilibrium of control, the 'Elite Aristocracy', the Superiors which are just two percent of the population, live with vast access to wealth, riches and power whilst the other human beings known as 'Inferiors' live in squalor, deprivation and poverty. Inferiors live in constant fear as they are chastised and utilized as slaves by the Elite Aristocracy and practically live at their beck and call, the Inferiors refer to the Elite who are hated in their midst as 'AristoRats'.
One day, a young inferior called China discovers an old robot in an abandoned robotics factory and starts to build a vigilante robot called Robin Crook that he then utilises to lead raids on the 'AristoRats' to rob them of their riches. Rebellion rapidly begins to spread as mutiny sets in and others quickly join his rebel group of Merry Robber Men and the Corporate Guardians suddenly find their own corporations are under attack as Robin Crook and his followers attempt to pilfer wealth from every source possible. Fear initially creates discord amongst the Corporate Guardians as they start to accuse each other of treachery but a few of the Corporate Guardians, who still remain united, in direct response to challenge the Inferior rebellion manage to form an army called the 'Sandguards' which are not human or robots but a genetically enhanced hybrid human life form as they seek to destroy Robin Crook and his many followers.
