His instinct to conquer had won him accolades in the FBI, but the ethical restrictions held him hostage to the whims and agendas of politics.

Now the two have to put aside a bad first impression to work together in order to find Eris's uncle and take back the power and status that was unfairly stolen from her. That is if Zorin doesn't drive Eris insane first.
