A sprout shall grow of ancient seed.

The curse of man shall be undone.
But brothers rise ere dragon's bane,
The last shall smite the first again.

Then Song discovers an heirloom that links him to an ancient prophecy. His destiny lies within the old tales he has scorned. Song must follow the path that killed his father.
