The immortal couple who rule an interplanetary empire, their own planet being under six suns that never set, are without child. When an ancient mage brings to them a child, they accept her without question. But babe and mage turn out to be a single being of whom, as the one half ages the other grows younger. When their ages coincide they bear a son, Melgor Erdin, whose birth shatters the fabric of time itself. His whole life thus becomes a quest to mend, to undo, the disasters caused by his very becoming. He travels from time to time seeking a place where he is in accord with his surroundings.
