Expectations suck and young Edwin knows it better than most. Born the youngest son of the second wife of a retired adventurer turned village guardian, he feels his life is being taken away from him, being shaped by what others want him to do.
His grandfather expects him to succeed in his life’s work as village head, his father expects Edwin to be better than him, and his older brother expects him to just drop dead.
What is he to do?
He’s the weakest and most untalented of his siblings, whatever he can do. Surely his older "grumpier" half-brother and "Unique" half-sister can do better.
If it was up to him, he would go out and brave the dangers of the world, dread wolves, dragons, giant sand worms, and gargantuan sea serpents. He would fight them all and live many adventures, turning his name into legend.
Sadly, things hardly go the way we want them to.
Lucky for him, the recent arrival of a mage to the coastal town of Hillside has given Edwin an opportunity, a chance that may change his life forever as outside forces play in the background with the delicate balance maintaining the peace.
Edwin will now give it his all to journey through the path of magic while learning about the people in his life and the circumstances that lead to his birth.
Wait, who's this girl, and why does she have horns?!
