When only a young boy, after a disturbing dream and a mysterious
encounter with a dragon, the hero's family has disappeared and no one
recognizes him. He runs from the town with a young thief named Bow, only
to be challenged by a horrific demon that calls him the destined child.
It easily renders him unconscious and throws him from the cave. Ten
years later, he and Bow have become junior Rangers at a town, and in the
events that follow he begins to realize that he is, indeed, the destined
child. And he has a mission.
