Necromancers are treated as second-class citizens in the Kingdom of Alavesh. With a history of violence, conquest and general evil deeds, it's a stigma that could, at best, get you kicked out of the local tavern and, at worst, killed at the hands of an angry mob.
Enter Bethany: a young girl from a far away land who has a natural affinity for raising the dead and has lived alone on these perilous streets for many months. With lute in hand and hopeless idealism in her heart, she's on a one-woman quest to undo some of these nasty prejudices about her kind by helping those in need. History, after all, is populated with stories of heroes and their magnanimous deeds, isn't it about time there was a necromancer amongst them?
