Once, as a Burguish soldier, Philo was tasked with protecting a faerish mimasery. While The Pact bears down on them, Philo meets Vignette and finds love in the most unlikely of places.
Their story is finally being told. And what a story it is! No wonder Vignette is so mad at Philo. And you find out about those scars on his back. No wonder he doesn't tell anybody about them.
