His orders are to get to switch sides or get rid of her. Things get way complicated from there. The Kickstarter is for Issue #1 of Pop Kill and has a bunch of great incentives.

Kai Bradbury is an up and coming actor who can be seen in Freeform’s new series Motherland: Fort Salem as Gerit, a male witch who strikes up a whirlwind relationship with ‘Tally Craven,’ played by Jessica Sutton (The Kissing Booth). The show reimagines history where witches ended their persecution 300 years ago by cutting a deal with a burgeoning U.S. government to fight for their country as powerful soldiers.
