Prologue: Armstrong

Before he was a husband and a father, William Armstrong was a career criminal.

He’d never hurt anyone who didn’t deserve it, and he never messed with monster girls. But he was still guilty of a litany of crimes.

Assault, robbery, fraudulent representation, extortion, the list went on.

If there was an angle to be found, he was the one looking for it.

In his youth he and his parents had a falling out, mostly over the kinds of people he was spending his time with and the activities they were getting up to together. He never did reconcile with them, which would later be his biggest regret in life.

He and his associates carried on like idiots for the better part of his twenties, pulling off a number of capers that would solidify their reputation in the criminal underworld.

Then he met a girl and everything changed.

Kendra Wilburn was unlike anyone he had ever known: she was joyous and kind, loving and selfless, and though she had a bit of a temper, it was rarely seen.

From the moment she first fractured his wrist for trying to steal her bag, Will was done. He bid farewell to his friends and ‘co-workers’ and got an honest job for honest pay, all in striving to become an honest man.

The only obstacle to his love?

A Troglodyte named Cass who also loved Kendra.

For good reason the lizard girl didn’t trust him, even when he and Kendra married two years after they first met she was still frosty towards him.

But Kendra was in love, and as her best friend Cass respected that, even if it wasn’t with her.

It took the lizard girl and the reformed criminal years to become something close to friends; it wasn’t until his son was born that she finally acknowledged that, as much of a rascal as he could be at times, he was a decent man.

Then Kendra was murdered, and they had to become more than friends to survive.

Even though she was still recovering from childbirth, the selfless mother had blocked the door and bought Cass and her husband the precious few seconds necessary for them to escape the burning house and the dark monster that ruined their lives.

Neither would ever forget her final words: a simple plea for them to save her baby.

After that night William became a criminal once more, stealing anything and everything he and Cass needed to keep his son warm and fed, healthy and safe.

Meanwhile the Troglodyte pushed a stud of iron through one of her ears and pledged a life-debt.

Neither to her deceased best friend nor the man who had loved her, but to the nameless infant, who had done nothing to earn it.

Her reasoning was that if he grew up to become an Empath like his mother was he could more than earn it then.

She was so smitten with her for a reason.

While on the run the unlikely pair worried for the child constantly, given how small he was. But time passed and he began to gain weight; becoming a healthy, if small, baby under their almost fanatical care.

And they never forgot the threat the dark monster posed to the boy.
