"It is the future ...The Fire from the Stars has burned our world, In this age of fear.... a legend is told .... that the Waters of Strength and Wisdom shall cleanse the Water of Evil...and wash away the Fire from the Stars." - The show's opening narration.
Kamen Rider Pecos is an American-created entry in the Kamen Rider Series and the third series of Kamen Rider to air on TV in the US. It mixes elements of westerns, sci-fi, mild elements of horror and little bit of post-apocalyptic cyberpunk.
The story takes places in an unspecified time in the future, years after the Showa and Heisei Kamen Rider's lifetimes. 19 years ago, a giant alien spacecraft approached the planet and devastated Earth's defenses, the corrupt world government leaders in an act of self-preservation and cowardice surrendered the Earth to the unknown alien force which humans would later call the Pra'meths (Pra-mEEths). Though resistances were formed, they were annihilated by the aliens causing a sense of hopelessness and despair among humanity as the Pra'meths began using the planet as a weapons testing ground. Flash forward to the present time and the Earth's oceans have evaporated to almost nothing from some of the weapons and experiments tested on the planet. In the desert city of Leone, where water still flows, a stranger who calls himself Pecos arrives in town and starts fighting the foot soldiers of the Pra'meths donning a strange belt that gives him an armored suit with the power of wind....
