Ordered by Embry Eskyll, the head of the International Agency of Magic, to locate and detain what appears to be a random teenage unknown, IAM operatives apprehend Riley as he attempts to flee a violent coffee shop explosion. Unbeknownst to all, Embry has been possessed by the spirit of Tievel, a once powerful dark mage now exiled from the physical world. Plotting to employ Riley's unknown abilities to recover his physical form, Tievel spirit controls Embry's body to find the prodigal young mage and complete his quest for power and enslave all those who oppose him.
