The Healer

Aescepalus, father of all doctors.
They say he could cure any disease and heal any injury.
Including death.
Souls vanished from the underworld as Aescepalus revived them.
Cerberus, the guard dog of The Abyss, yelped and chased his tail. Hades screamed with rage.
“How dare he steal my subjects from me!”
Hades put a price on Aescepalus’ head, and bounty hunters were more than happy to hunt him down.
Until Aescepalus reminded them that many bounties were worth more alive than dead.
“I can fix your mistakes,” he told them.
But eventually, Hades won out.
Because Aescepalus couldn’t heal himself.
