A great sorcerer invented a mirror called "The Shadow Reflector". The
mirror could create an identical copy of the person whose reflection was in
it. The sorcerer hid the mirror and people began to question whether it
even existed, till documents discovered recently by someone proved that the
mirror indeed existed. They reported their findings to the Professional
Magic Users Society, but before they could take any action the documents
were stolen. Lina and Nahga have both been hired by the society to catch
the thief.
