A lone, weary knight belonging to a group named Flaming Fist comes to a corner of a now-ravaged town. He then quickly draws his sword in anticipation of an unknown enemy approaching from behind but there was no one.

Suddenly, he starts puking blood with his teeth falling out and he goes through a vicious ceremorphosis process of horrible physical change, where he is slowly transformed into a Cthulhu-like psionic being called Mind Flayer.
