Sword & Sorcery Fantasy

There was a time when I thought that dragons were beautiful…

During my childhood, I believed that I was friends with a dragon, except the dragon never knew of this friendship.

Days after my thirteenth birthday, my secret was no longer mine to keep. Soldiers arrived to slay the dragon so that a feudal lord could make his name amongst the Nine Kingdoms. It ended in abject failure. They were left to soak in a bloodbath of their own making.

In a rage, the dragon destroyed the place that I called home, and killed the people that I called family. She also dismantled a thing that I called love.

Reborn under a mound of ashen corpses, my empty shell vowed vengeance, forging a fiery path of retribution that could not be undone.

Not by my own design, I inadvertently became a slayer of dragons. Curiously, dragon slaying isn’t my next job…
