Dack Fayden, Planeswalker thief, has stolen a valuable artifact, the Ancient Fang. Using his abilities to learn the artifact's secrets, instead he witnesses the destruction of his hometown through the eyes of the villain that committed the act. Dack sets out to track her down at her next destination: Innistrad. Arriving in the new plane, Dack stumbles into a desperate fight in an Inn between two cathars and a group of vicious vampires, led by Baron Ekhart Von Falkenrath. As the group manages to flee, Falkenrath gives chase but the Ancient Fang beats him back. Dack and one of the cathars, Ingrid Reichart, return to her town. Meanwhile, Falkenrath confronts a mysterious woman at his manor, the previous owner of the Ancient Fang: Sifa Grent.
