After finding Caelius abandoned on a wintry night with no memory of his past, Father Marques realizes that this young orphan boy is a much grander mystery than he could have imagined. (This story has a Christian theme, but I've purposely been a vague on certain details to cater to a wider audience. I am not Catholic myself, so please let me know if something is inaccurate!)
