This sinister pair appear one day in a town held captive by a witch – a ruler with magic coursing through her tattooed body who has convinced the townspeople that he is their hero. But Ashaff and Guido know better. They live by one belief: “Wherever a witch goes, only curses and disasters follow.” They have scores to settle and won’t hesitate to eliminate anyone in their path, be it an angry mob or an army garrison.
