With a dangerous creature threatening the planet he swore to protect, Reegan Keaton is desperate, and out of ideas as to how to get rid of it. Then a solution arrives, in the form of a young chimerite with a genetic quirk. Unfortunately for Reegan, his willing new student is going to need a LOT of training before hes ready for the job!




Creating Outcast Hope was an amazing experience which helped me to further develop the movie Outcast Hero as well as the universe it is set in. While it has since become non-canon to the main movie in some respects, Hope still remains as Niftihalo Studios' first completed animated short.
