The Edge of Empire
Years ago, a young woman came to Llorkh with nothing but an unborn baby. She died in childbirth, and the baby was horribly misshapen and huge.
The child, Hiatha, grew up in Llorkh an orphan, and the object of ridicule and scorn. He eventually left Llorkh and no one knew or cared where he went.
A day ago, Una saw Hiatha killed by an apparent cult priestess deep in the swamp.
