A fire can keep you warm . . . or it can consume you. When Bren Aldric Ermendrud was chosen to attend the Soltryce Academy, everyone knew he would have an important future in service to the Empire. But nobody–least of all Bren himself–could foresee the cruelty he would endure, and the ways in which it would break and remake him. Witness the events that transform Bren into the Mighty Nein's Caleb Widogast, and how they inform the path he'll take in the future. Critical Role: Vox Machina Origins writer Jody Houser joins fan-favorite artist Selina Espiritu, Game Master Matthew Mercer, and cast member Liam O'Brian to reveal Caleb's troubled past in this all-new hardcover graphic novel! Fans of Critical Role won't want to miss this newest edition to their Mighty Nein library!
