“Across the Veil” is a “Grimm" (tv series)” meets “The Witcher" story about two different races of magical people, the Solanai and Seelie, forging an alliance with a marriage between the young Seelie Princess, Aislynn and the Solanai Prince, Nylas. Trapped in ancient time, the Seelie have stayed behind to keep the veil that protects the source of magic from out of the hands of magical monsters in the disguise of humans, Red Caps, walking in today’s New York City. The Solanai have worked hard over the thousand years or so keeping the Red Caps in check in the present day, but the upcoming alliance has threatened the possibility of ever reaching their prized magical source. As time passes differently for the Seelie people, each week Nylas travels through the veil between their worlds to see the young Aislynn, she has grown a year. Gradually a friendship grows to something more between the couple, though it has given the Red Caps the time they need to execute their plan, poisoning the princess to stop the alliance from ever occurring. To find a cure for his princess and to keep a war from breaking out across multiple realms, Nylas races against time itself, cutting down anyone and anything that crosses his path.
