The synopsis for Tiger Honor reads:

“Sebin desires nothing more than to follow in the footsteps of their legendary Uncle Hwan and join the Thousand World Space Forces and one day captain their own battle cruiser. As luck would have it, though, on the same day Sebin finally receives their acceptance letter, Hwan is declared a traitor to the Space Forces. Turns out the tiger captain has been accused of stealing a magical ancient artifact known as . . . wait for it . . .  the Dragon Pearl.

Now it’s up to Sebin to clear their uncle’s name and restore honor to the Juhwang Clan. That is, if they can survive the aftermath of a deadly explosion onboard the ship Haetae and, along with three other cadets, uncover the true villain hiding among them.”
