"Most people think time is like a river, that flows swift and sure in one direction. But I have seen the face of time, and I can tell you, they are wrong. Time is an ocean in a storm. You may wonder who I am and why I say this. Sit down, and I will tell you a tale like none you have ever heard."

She calls me the Prince of Time. But I am no prince, and I am no god.

Who am I? Well, the Prince shall do for now.

When I was a child, my family was poor, and one red moment, I became a street urchin.

The streets. That's were I learned everything. My acrobatic prowess, my warrior skills, and my knowledge of how the world works.

My life was never easy, but I always survived.

Survive. That's what I'll always do, as not even Death can stop me now.

It all started back in Babylon, 1 year ago.

In the royal vault, where King Sharaman stores his treasures.

The streets had a rumor, that from a raid to Delhi, India the King had brought home a fabled dagger.

Desperate at the time, I wanted it. I could sell it, I thought. I did not.

I broke into the vault, and I picked up the dagger.

What happened next, was something I could never quite grasp.

The Dagger burned a mark into my hand, The Mark Of Time.

Then it spoke, in a female voice.

"I know your intentions. Don't, I beg of you.

Don't, and I shall grant thou power to morph time itself."

I did what the Dagger said. I kept the Dagger of Time, and in turn, I became what I am now.

The Prince of Time.
