Ex-surfer Sean "Dud" Dudley finds a gold ring with a medieval beast etched onto it. He tries to pawn it, only to learn that it's worthless, but is told that it belongs a fraternal order called Order of the Lynx. Fate and an empty gas tank puts him outside of a building bearing the ring's lynx emblem. He is greeted by Ernie, a Luminous Knight, who gives him a limited tour and a pamphlet about the order and its home inside Lodge 49. Sensing a connection, Dud joins the order and want to become a squire. Having no home, Dud's sister Liz lets him stay with her, but blames their deceased father with their lot in life; leaving them in debt from his pool supply business.
