Arc 1: A Cry For Help Umbra Mortis never planned to be a mercenary, it just sort of happened that way. That fateful mission in Ereith completely shook up his life-- and now he's in the fast-paced and dangerous world of hired guns-- and he's still trying to raise a family! ---- Umbra and his son Victor live a standard, suburban life in the metropolitan city of Alcorith, despite being a familiar and master pair. Everything is normal-and that's the way Umbra likes it. However, when his necromancer son insists on answering a letter asking for magical assistance, the two find themselves in a dangerous new world, fighting for their lives.
