Terrence is the eldest of the three Dechantagne siblings, and has planned, along with his sister, to reinvigorate his family fortune by financing a colony in the distant land of Birmisia. Terrence is a former cavalry officer and an adventurer and is the only one his sister trusts. But Terrence also has a dark secret. He is addicted to a magical hallucinogenic drug, which not only causes the user to see things, but to actually experience them. White Opthalium, Vizio, or See Spice is rubbed onto the eyeballs and transports the user to a strange alternate reality.
