“Six months ago, if you told me fate decreed I’d be saving the world, I’d have laughed in your face and given fate the middle finger. But here I am: martial artist, design student, and now, demon ass-kicker. That dragon? It’s mine. It chose me. According to my ancestors, that means I’m the savior of the world – no pressure. A few months from now, I won’t be questioning fate, but you can bet I’ll be standing victorious over the body of whatever this ‘Gargos’ thing is, because I won’t let it end any other way.”
