Halo (Etrian Odyssey Fanfiction)
Memories can be tricky, and there isn't quite enough known about the human mind to actually understand the concept of amnesia and how to reverse the effects, so for a survivalist, a class of explorer with a normally flawless memory, a head wound that wipes out nearly every memory of the past he has can be considered a bit more than simple inconvenience.
Sage is the sole survivor of a mysterious attack on an unknown guild that was all but eradicated while exploring the Labyrinth, on the first floor no less. There are no leads on how it happened, no remains to take back, not even names or faces to remember, as Sage has forgotten basically everything from his past.
Despite the tragedy, Sage is determined to move forward, even with horrific nightmares ebbing away at his sanity. He wants to honor his fallen comrades, if not by name, then at least by action, by living his life to the fullest and swearing not to succumb to the uncertainties and pain of a past he can't remember.
Not alone by any means, he's taken in by the very novice guild that found him in the first place, full of rookies and dubbed as "Guild Halo" by Sage. The explorers of Halo are certainly mysterious in their own rights, and Sage is all too happy to immerse himself in their lives, if only to avoid the aching fear at the back of his mind, telling him that the incident that stole his memories wasn't as black and white as it first appeared.
