Danth Jorran and the Cursed Tome


Danth Jorran is a child of prophecy, and ward of the Monk of the Order of Letters, Fiff Ora. Ora taught her everything he knew; gambling, fighting, and swearing like a sailor, primarily because he had no idea what else to do with her. And then the prophecy from the Nameless Goddess came, directly to Ora himself, just like the Goddess had bestowed Danth upon him.
