Heaven is forbidden.
That is what my name means. In my native tongue it was a curse given to me by my father. A previous indiscretion by my mother. When he found out he wished to kill them both. The wiseman of the tribe convinced him otherwise. As it was not the time for violence. My life was spared and on the day of my birth the name given to me by my father was a curse. Heaven is forbidden to those with the mark on their body and to the one who bears it as a name I cannot foresee an afterlife.
