Elmira is a poor old woman residing in a crime filled village where nearly everyone lies, cheats and steals in order to get by. There are almost no jobs, so most people steal from one another in an effort to survive. Elmira used to do just that, but has since given that life up. For the past few decades she's pawned off almost everything she's owned just to get a bite to eat. She's now down to her last bit of food and her last piece of monetary value, her Grandfather's antique sword.
