The heartwarming and funny parenting story filled with black magic between the mysterious wizard, Cthu, and his pupil, Luna.


Cthu, known as a “Mind Reaver”, lives alone in a dungeon near a dark forest. He is knowledgeable, adept at Mind control, and has many strong tentacles. He is very annoyed at the humans that are always breaking into his dungeon. One day, Cthu meets a little girl, Luna, who seems to be abandoned in the dungeon. And that's how their story begins.
