Changed by an alchemist in the 1800s, Johem Hawke is now immortal. If he had not been in a blind rage at the time of his transformation, this may be a good thing. Unfortunately, the crystal placed within his chest cavity, not only gave him the ability to read a person's consciousness, have excessive speed strength, and advanced intelligence, but also froze him in his current state of hatred. Johem loses his ability to feel.
Changing his name to Draven Hawke, the statesman continues to hunt down men, like the ones who took his wife, for the next 200 years. Draven's only solace is to wipe out what he perceives as evil. Autumn is a kind woman who has a troubling life.
