Story Synopsis

Lutz, a young and impressionable 11-year old boy, leaves his home in search of a minstrel. He is fascinated by the sight of the powerful skyscrapers that line the city. He meets with Yuriaude, a minstrel who is returning home from a long journey.

Yuriaude tells the child that he has the power of a magic called foresight, and with this ability, he can see that Lutz has a power hidden within him. Lutz, attempting to be humble, says that his mother thinks that he will grow up to make something of himself but he does not think he is the kind of person that could accomplish anything like that. Yuriaude tells the child that his mother is correct; Lutz will indeed become great and will even obtain the power of foresight himself someday. This is not a mere illusion or flattery. It will happen. As they converse, a monster named Leviathan attacks Lutz' home village while the child is away.
