He claims to be one with the land around him. He avoids all of the "technologies" that his brethren use. I don't know about that. The other villagers just think that he's a crazy old man but, honestly, no-one knows where he came from or how long he's been here. All that they know is that he was here before they were born. The elders in the village all shun him. He's different. He's not like us. He's evil.
I think that the elders, like the ones in my village, are all fools. They are superstitious and see demons everywhere they look. Although I want to disregard everything that they say, there's something about this "man". He IS different. The problem is that I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing. As I travel farther and farther from my home, I'm less sure about myself and more sure that I don't know anything.
