Pah’min is a Minotaur living in the kingdom of his sworn enemies, Yiili. He is a spy sent at a young age with the purpose of discovering the invasion plans of Yiili upon his own kingdom of Ganth. Being a spy, he is separated from the woman he loves and the son he does not know he has. He is plagued by a torn sense of self which manifests physically when he is threatened. Raije, the God of War and Mencius, the God of Vengeance, the two Minotaur Gods of the Pantheon, compete for his soul as he strives forth in an attempt to earn honor in the most dishonorable occupation for a Ganthian. You see, in Ganthian society, personal honor is held higher than all other attributes, and spies, no matter how necessary to the safety of the Empire are shunned for their perceived lacking of honor. |
The story follows his path to glory and the regaining of his own personal honor as the two lives he leads are suddenly thrust into one.
