Zaren Rixx is a man in turmoil. He's lost his wife and child and yearns to join them in the afterlife. With pain as his guide, he refuses to accept that his family is no more. In his mind, he has nothing worth living for and strives to cease his existence, much to the chagrin of those within the village.
He struggles with his insecurities, unable to accept the lot that life has dealt him. His loved ones do their best to bring him out of his slumber, yet his stubbornness refuses to give up its claim upon his melancholy. He has no wish to deal with the world outside.
When given a task for the village, he is stirred to re-examine the foundation of his own hearts. He finds his desire to serve again and soon Zaren realizes there is more to life than the pain he has lived with for so long. With war on the horizon, he knows he'll need to become the warrior he once was. To do that, he'll need to let go of the world he knew. Forced to make a decision that will forever change him, Zaren's only hope lies in holding fast to the memories and love found deep within himself.
