Kristofa is a Syrilae man like most other Syrilae men: born in the village, raised by someone other than his parents. In time his powers stabilized and he took to visiting the neighbouring Human town of Farren, where male hormones would take the better of him – with sometimes nearly lethal results.
But Kristofa had his eyes on another woman, who would turn him away and break his heart forgood. This wound never quite healed; even as this woman fell for another man and bore his daughter, Kristofa remained, close, befriending the child in time.
And, one day, he would betray her – and set in motion the end of his kind.
