Out of all the types of pain humanity can experience, heartbreak is the worst. After seeing a dear friend murdered before his eyes and the love of his life drive away, Lucian Talbain is lost, powerless, and without purpose. Adjusting to a civilian life again is not easy. He can't. The world is still in danger so long as Thanatos and the Arcanum are still on the loose.

Being Nightmare wasn't something he had to be; it's now something that he needs, wants, to be. With Esperanza's words echoing in his mind, he decides, Nox suit or no, he will continue to protect those he loves at any and all costs.

He will need that courage and determination, for a new villain has emerged from the shadows and is out for blood. Nightmare's blood.
