Chapter 12: A Legacy Reborn
The tale of Villain 23’s redemption spread across Sartoria, inspiring hope in the hearts of those who had suffered at their hand.

Villain 23, now known as Valeria, vowed to protect the innocent and prevent others from falling into the same darkness that had once consumed her.
Epilogue: Shadows of the Past
