Wynn is the new kid in school, and therefore not all that respected.
The cool kids in school are the Backside Boys, but they are also violent
bullies ... but somehow their dirty deeds are always covered up, since the

Backside Boys a lesson. And suddenly, the outcasts, calling themselves
e'Tzaintes, are the talk of the school and are suddenly considered cool.
