What makes a man if not his past? What defines a man if not his choices? If to live means to go through living with the burden of carrying the regrets of both then why even bother?
Kainen Larable, a 27 year old con-artist, is a man burdened by his past simply living out of obligation and for the excitement of a cheap thrill. He is plagued by nightmares and confronted and questioned by his own personal dark entity going by the title 'Host'.
"Ah but the pain you feel now is no dream Larable. When will you realise your blood bleeds black for a reason?"
