The Island of Eslandelle has been put under the curse of eternal winter and it looks like it is going to stay that way forever. But Branthur the Great Mage of Earandelle, the very mage who cursed Eslandelle, is wise. He knows there will come a day when Light sends its child to free Eslandelle from the curse and subsequently from Earandelle. Branthur, of course, has no intention to let that happen.
