Gus is half-boy-half-deer, and grew up in the wilderness with his dad due to the fact that hybrids are hunted by some of the remaining human population, many of whom blamed them for the virus.

Gus befriends a man named named Jepperd, and the pair set off on an adventure across America in search of answers.
