In the forest of Leafwood, I live in a peaceful community, governed by The Forest Council, which fosters our old traditions and beliefs. Since long ago, our people have feared the night. The purity of light is sacred to us, protecting us from the malevolent Shadowers who hide in the darkness and threaten to rip apart our calm lives.
