The forgotten tale of Marigold Iron
One of the unsung casualties in the great war belongs to Edward Marigold, the owner of a mining and smelting business in Nightshire. Edwards story is a far cry from the heroics perforned by notorious figures such as Ariana Reva, Leopold III, Balthazar Akuma, Keith Farmer or Arisa - this rather is the story of one of the many regular Joes that became victim of the turmoil that brewed in Andron.
