A Short Story of approx. 5,000 words.
For Bafion, there is no farther to fall. Once a banneret, officer, and gentleman, he is none of those things now. He is a swordsman who has slipped through the cracks of society and is eking out an existence as a thug for hire.
He is presented with the opportunity to reclaim some of what was lost to him, but to do so will mean facing part of his past that he would rather forget.
