Retired from the wars, Artur spends his days avoiding the same elven people he once protected because they fear him. While hunting for deer in the woods, he wounds a dark elf; the same race he had spent his life hunting. When he uncharacteristically helps her and her infant son, he risks the safety of not only himself but his entire village.
