Larten Crepsley is living with a poor family. He has to work at a factory. One day Traz, the evil foreman, drowns Vur Horston, Larten's cousin. Larten stabs Traz and everyone calls him a killer so he gets chased and he runs away to a cemetary. When he goes inside the crypt he eats cobwebs and Seba Nile asks him "Are cobwebs a treat where you come from?" Then he gives Larten an apple and then he keeps Larten. Eventually Laten becomes his assistant. Larten then meets Wester Flack and they both stay with Seba.
