On the outside, Oracle is unaffected, straight-forward and trustworthy (she's got the best poker face in the Peloponnese). After all, she's a Seer - the mouthpiece of the Gods - so how could she be anything but? Fact is, Oracle (her position, not her real name - that's a mystery) is tough and shrewd. Her visions, with their terrifying truths and destined events over which she is helpless, haven taken their toll over the years. Enter Hero - a man whose destiny is prophesized - and someone Oracle can, at last, help.
