All stories have a beginning, middle, and end. Like most stories, this one has its origins. It all began with a young warrior’s awakening.
In the a town called Carthage, a 40-year old humanoid lynx, known as a Lynkas name Kazuto, carrying the body of a 15-year-old lynkas boy, who is in a comatose state, to the edge of town. Kazuto made it to the tree near the Sapphire River. He sets the boy against the tree. Then he sees the morning sun glistening on the river.
Then he looks at the boy and the gold flame mark on his right hand.
Kazuto: Can you hear the river running? It may be the last thing you can hear as your soul is fading away. You are no further use to me now.

The boy lands on the ground and looks around to see where that voice came from.
Boy: Who are you? Where are you?
???: Tell me your name.
“My name....my name is..”
The boy tries to remember his name.

??: Haruki Vangard.
Haruki notices that his body is fading.
“Huh? Why am I fading?”
??: Your Soul is fading way. This part of you is nothing more than a fragment.
“Will I die?”, Haruki asks.

Haruki looks up and sees glowing eyes above him.
Haruki: Are you sure?
??: You will be alive and you can still be yourself.

Haruki did what the voice told him to do. When he did, he began to feel whole.
Then the voice says, “From here on, you and I are one.”
Haruki: We are one.
???: The next to thing do is…
