Little Lost Soul
He's spent too long alone, he misses his mother and when searching for a sympathetic voice found only unfeeling strangers and a harsh mistress that tormented him.
He feels betrayed and abandoned, this child of the north. He wants the evil to go away, to turn the fear and pain back on the one that dealt it so freely. So he does what any child does.
He makes a wish.
Do not worry little lost soul. A friend has finally arrived to kill the monster that haunts you.
Your wish will be granted, and everything will be alright soon enough...
