Human nature, Mother nature. They coexist in the same realm yet are in constant battle. Both powerful, neither tamable. It is basic human instinct to want to be in control, yet Mother nature readily inflicts her will upon anyone who seeks to become master.

Who will rise? Is there ever truly a victor?
