The story follows a peculiar man Tom Leer, a lonesome individual with an out-right terrible past. Due to his history, he doesn't smile, nor talk much. Although he was renowned for his intelligence, the people surrounding him defined the guy as having a terrible "lack of compassion", and being unreasonably "cold-hearted" as well.
On one particularly bad day, Tom was walking along his regular path to work, when, from an open window far above, a flurry of random bricks were dropped.
Tom managed to skillfully remove people from danger in his greatest show of human kindness to date, suprisingly proceeding to dodge the bricks himself !
....but truck-san didn't appreciate Tom stepping out into the street while doing so...
When Mr. Leer woke up, he came face to face with the most hideous diety in all creation itself. They told him that he would be reincarnated against his wishes, and he wouldn't be allowed to take his ever-precious memories with him. Instead he may retain the 3 traits that defined him during life on earth.
The disgusting higher existence then sent our poor protagonist's soul down to the magical lands of Antasia!
Thus, came the birth of the most intelligent, uncompassionate, cold-hearted goblin named Oer.....
A novel dedicated to some rather dark thoughts.
