A King in Chains
If the Ghost Zone had a secret, it was this: Pariah Dark had been asleep when he was crowned. He'd had a good reason to rage.
The young king slept for most of the first week of his reign. He did not seek his bedchambers, though they existed, and in a room not too far from the throne room. But he stayed in his throne, sleeping fitfully, and rising only to weep or shout or scream at nightmares.
It was a good omen. Pariah had not been so peaceful.
