We’re introduced to a troubled, yet perceptive young man who views himself as one who’s on the outside looking in when it comes to society. He’s cursed with an awareness towards the paranormal. His mother was murdered and the police are passing it off as a suicide. And on top of all that, he takes a chance with his peers and becomes the laughing punching bag at a bar before getting tossed out. Desolate doesn’t even begin to describe his mental state. What’s the point of even trying?
So when a dead girl shows up and makes her presence known with authority, Cloud embraces his curse. He could use a friend. And dead people can’t be much worst than the living, right?
