He travels off to a far land, hoping to develop his reputation through the Maer’s powerful influence but finds trouble once he arrives. After some time, the Maer sends him out on a mission and is forced to get along with new and challenging characters. Along his journey he meets a beautiful mythical being from fables and learns new tricks which make him unearth the hidden power within him: The name of the wind.
