The numb tingling that passes from blade to arm as the steel runs through an enemy's flesh is the sensation Corentin longs to feel most. His talents may have yet to reach the height of their potential, but when they have, he knows a feeling of pleasure beyond his wildest dreams awaits. So he continues to forge himself in the crucible of combat each day, in the hope that before long he will experience the truest bliss.
