The series is about the three interplanetary bounty hunters Dutch, John Jaqobis and D'avin Jaqobis, employed as so-called killjoys or repatriation agents at the recognized organization RAC (Reclamation Apprehension Coalition), who search for criminals, but also missing people or objects in their quadrant while in this there is a multi-planetary class struggle.

The galactic environment

The quad is often not the current quadrant, but the four following objects: the planet Qresh and its three moons Arkyn , Westerley and Leith . The Quad is part of the United Republic that includes multiple star systems , and the United Republic is part of the J Star Cluster , known for short as The J , which includes many more star systems.

The green plasma

A biological threat from the parasitic green plasma has been seeping in from outside the J Star Cluster for a long time (presumably for several centuries) . People infected with green plasma are called hulls . Although the envelopes have great self-healing abilities and physical strength (it is beneficial for parasites if their hosts survive for a long time), they are spiritually controlled by the green plasma (there are similar processes in the terrestrial animal world). The still human-looking envelopes turn the biological threat into a military threat (it is beneficial for parasites if their hosts ensure their further spread). Within the green plasma there exists a hostile intelligence called the Lady . Khlyen, Dutch and Aneela's father, discovered green plasma a long time ago and initially used it as a super fertilizer. The Scarbacks are monks who often self-harm to show that their blood does not contain green plasma (this behavior has been around for so long that most people have forgotten its biological rationale).
