Meet the Main Characters


A young elf with no memory of her past, Alleria has spent most of her time fleeing from the bloodhungry canidae that have been hunting her for nearly a year, accompanied only by her soul-partner—Reia, a kitsune.

When Laderic and Midiga save her life, they agree to escort her to the north to find Nara'jainita, the fabled elvish capital, where she hopes to recover her lost memories.


When Laderic saved the life of a lost elf girl, he had no idea that this adventure would turn out to be his greatest.

Daunted by the obstacles before them but swayed by the promise of riches, the young mercenary agrees to escort Alleria as far north as she is willing to go. But, get rich quick schemes are never as easy as they sound.


Feeling caged in her own home, trapped with the demons of her past, Midiga leaps at the opportunity for an escape in an escort mission.

The huntress immediately takes a liking to her new charge, doing anything and everything she can to protect her new elf friend. The darkness that awaits them is no match for this felid mercenary.
