He meets Kage who is a shadow and a survivor of a wiped-out assassin clan. Kage understands his words despite Bojji being silent. The people of his kingdom are very disappointed with him to look down upon him. They refuse to be under the leadership of someone who can neither hear nor speak. They call him The Useless Prince and jeer upon at his supposed foolishness. Bojji may not be physically strong; whoever he is certainly not weak of heart. A chance encounter with a shadow creature makes him believe that he has found a friend amidst those who only choose to notice his shortcomings instead of being terrorized by them. The otherwise abrasive creature begins to warm up to him when he starts meeting with Kage the shadow regularly. Kage and Bojji’s very unlikely friendship lays the stepping stones of the prince’s journey, a journey where he intends to conquer his fears and insecurities and finally achieve his dreams.
