LoiTar was a happy dragon until his soul was stolen and placed in a mechanical replica. His escape was wasted when he broke down in the midst of the desert. To top it off, he is revived by none other than one of the mechanical blacksmiths who stole his life. Struggling to find peace in his new and strange life, LoiTar has yet to imagine what might happen to him next.
