Summary: In the middle of long, hot Mojave summer, Arcade’s love for proverbs grabs the eye of a stranger. A taciturn orphan feared for his strength, Tony’s tracing a medallion found on him as a baby - and he needs a Latin translator to help him follow it back to The Fort.
But as they forge deeper into Legion country, the truth behind Tony’s birth becomes self-evident - and ugly. Burned by the sun and the dark heart of his origins, will Tony rise above his blood? Or will violence run in the family?
