This story is a prequel to "Simple Chaim". Readers of that story will know that Raizel's father, Nathan, was a very hard-hearted man. But how had he been turned from the Lamed-Vav path of compassion and kindness? What traumatic events could produce a man like Nathan? In "Descent Into Darkness" we learn that, like Jonah, when we fight against our own destiny we end up in the belly of the Beast.
