In episode 1, Will contemplates the deep-rooted fear in his heart that has been holding him back all these years. He looks back at the moments in his life where he could have shown more courage. He was merely a few months old when he met his three undead guardians- Mary, Blood, and Gus. Despite the obvious difference between them, the trio raised him with love and compassion. Will always desired to ask them why they decided to help him when they could have done better things in life. But realizing that he was hiding something from them always stopped him from having an honest conversation.

The boy slowly grows up learning about different ancient gods and the words of magic offered up to them called Words of Creation. When he accidentally sees Mary burning herself, memories of his past life trigger an emotional response, and Will shouts that he can’t afford to lose someone again. In episode 2, the protagonist may learn something unexpected about his past life, which will help him remember his past more clearly. In his quest for truth, he will eventually stumble upon the secrets of the undead.
