Nothing is as it seems…

A new character. A deepening mystery. A glimpse of what the future holds.

The Man With Emerald Eyes (real name withheld) appears at the moment Barsch loses his stride (in his defense, heatstroke and a broken leg would make anyone lose their stride).

Riddles and question await our confused protagonist, as his new “friend” bends the laws of the universe to his will. Who is this mysterious man? What does he want from Barsch? And how is he able to do the things he does?

These are the questions I wanted to inspire in my readers with this scene. With Carçus City reduced to a crater (and with their business in the city concluded), I wanted to show the reader that there is more to this story than a simple fetch quest for an old man’s medicine.

The meeting with The Man With Emerald Eyes, then, is a gateway to the real story of Awakening. From here on, the scope and scale of the story will continue to increase. Trust me, this story is one that you will never forget.

Thank you for listening. The next Behind the Scenes is “Alone Once Again”, where we catch up with our favourite girl with violet eyes, look forward to it!

And remember, Never Lose Your Stride!
