A lock replaced the one wrecked by the battering ram.
So long ago. When the townspeople hunted him……hacked his men down at the door.
The door he had locked behind him, to begin his solitary flight.
They mutilated the corpses and smashed the door …. to find an empty room.
And now, years later, his Master, displeased with him, had banished him to that room.
Ghosts of the betrayed beat on the door.
There was no escaping their vengeance.
