He had never been one to shy away from a challenge.
Especially one with a prize.
Arlo is, at best, an annoyance. Known throughout Kalla's city center as a con artist and self-proclaimed "master thief", he and his best friend, Caide, live life on the fringes of society. Petty theft and minor infractions are not only their way-of-life, but also Arlo's hobby of choice. Though he often finds himself the unrightful owner of many valuable and costly items, somehow it is never enough. Nothing can satisfy what lies within him. Before he- and his ever reluctant partner-in crime-, Caide- know it, their simple lives are plummeted into mystery and great risk. Hidden beneath a shroud of darkness and anonymity, a figure comes forth, with an offer Arlo cannot refuse. A young royal's head for all the riches and fame he could desire. Without hesitation, Arlo accepts the offer, and his criminal resume expands to include kidnapping. Little does he know the price he, himself, will have to pay for his prize. Perhaps, he will find, the prize is not worth the cost..[/details]
