You know how Game Of Thrones has all those different Houses fighting for power? Think of the world of Lazarus as a sort of modern, dystopian Westeros, with guns, drones and tanks instead of swords and knights, and with the Carlyle, Morray, Carragher and other Families instead of House Stark, House Lannister and so on.
