Swii, a male rogue had long been exiled from his tribe. His parents were found guilty of conspiracy to overthrow the leadership were executed. Him, being just a child was deemed exiled, and forced from his village at the early age of 10.

Against all odds, he must clear his name and oust the real criminals from their positions.
Oro, a male elder Kiryn sorcerer had ventured from his homeland in search of greater things.
