During the 13th century, it was believed that West Africa was a place of untold magic, full of mythical beasts talking animals, and great heroes. But it was the great kingdom of Awu where the plight of Koni brought to light the true magic of West Africa. Koni was a tortured man with no memories of his past. Plagued by a strange curse that forces him to see the spirits of the dead, specifically those who have suffered violent deaths, he spends much of his time wandering Awu, exacting vengeance on behalf of the spirits that haunt him.
