Solomon Doone was born the 13th son of Denzin Doone, the most evil necromancer in a long line of evil necromancers. It was the night of the full moon, and Solomon's mother, a frightful witch whose body was covered in strange birthmarks of the most evil shapes and configurations, died in childbirth at the stroke of midnight. Bezzle Gerts, the twisted, one-armed midwife who delivered the child, remarked that Ferget, the Doones' black housecat, had crossed the threshold into the room just as Solomon uttered his first cry.

Oftentimes Fate is not subtle. After a family dispute that left most of the Doone clan unrecognizable or immobilised, Solomon has purchased a ticket for Tarant on the IFS Zephyr. He doesn't bother looking at the seat number.
