The Gatherer

The Gatherer

by cocoidie

These are dark times. Hope fades. All live in fear. My fear, my pain began on my eleventh birthday, when the gifts of my heritage revealed themselves. The day I was cast out of my home and family, for being different.

For I am a Gatherer. There are other names for people of my profession, Soul Catcher, Reaper, none of them accurate. 

In my twenty-five years I have seen many horrors. I have seen other Gatherers cut down as they worked, people tortured and mutilated to strengthen the life force released. I have seen the aftermath of a troll attack, on humans and Eldritch alike. In death we are all equal. I fear my end and yet I welcome it as a release from my responsibilities. But I will not waver; I will strive to the last for I, Ryshel Huntress, am a Gatherer. And I know nothing else.
