Main Characters (illustrated by Miss. Shinano)
One ship was navigating the nasty sea. The captain ordered the weatherworker to quieten the sea. However, no matter how he held out, he was not able to recall a true name of the sea and the wind. Suddenly, two dragons appeared from dark rift in the clouds. It was not to have thought that the dragon that lived in outskirts in the west appeared in the Tokai region where man lived, and they eat each other each other. The balance of the world has been collapsing.
Ged was traveling for the root of the misfortune in the world. Ged in the boyhood was a hasty, arrogant shepherd. He became a now mature adult, and was called the greatest wizard ,that is, "Great Lord Archmage". Ged meets Arren who is Enlad's prince. He was run after by "Shadow of the mystery". The collapse of the balance of the world drove Arren's mind and body mad. Arren was running about trying to escape because of own shadow. He was not able to oppose the dark that existed in own mind. Such Arren was just like Ged on a young day.
They kept traveling while passing over the valley, the mountain, and a lot of ruins. A lot of croplands were abandoned. Perhaps, farmer was abandoning arable land for the collapse of the balance of the world. And, they trace to the Hort Town and attach. The town prospered by a lot of people. However, workmen had forgotten their techniques, merchants was always selling the imitation, moreover, the slave's dealings were rampant there. There were many addicts of Hajia, a kind of the drug, in the back street. They were losing sight of the target though it moved about without the eagle of the people winning fame. People's eyes were fixed on dreams or on death, another world somewhere else.
They visited the house of familiar Tenar in Ged's old times at on the way to of travel. Tenar was a large shrine maiden of dark "Tombs of Atuan" at girlhood. When Ged regained the bracelet of a broken Erreth-Akbe from the Tomb, she was rescued to the world of freedom and light by Ged. In Tenar's house, the girl named Therru who had the mark of the burn in the face was cohabiting. Therru avoided Arren who was holding the dark in the mind. Arren helped the field labor. And, Arren learnt "The creation of the world has been approved by balance" from Ged. Therru gradually opened the mind in Arren. However, Arren was frightened because of its shadow the other day.
Finally, Ged discovered the cause to which the balance of the world had collapsed. The cause is that the wizard who was called a Cob was opening the door between Usha and dead' worlds. He had been called "Cob of Habnar" before. Cob has fought against Ged before. Because the Cob did the usage of wrong magic. Cob was defeated at Ged. He left for the direction in the west swearing reforming. However, Cob had been sworn to revenge Ged in the future.
Arren felt that he was not able to control own shadow. And, he left Tenar's house. He fainted frighteningly because of the shadow. And, he was collected by Cob, and carried to the Cob's castle. Cob had the plan to open the door between Usha and dead' worlds. The purpose of it is to obtain the life where it lived through all eternity. Ged knew that the balance of the world collapsed when the door was opened. Therefore, Ged will start obstructing the plan of the Cob. Cob scheduled a plan to manipulate Arren and to murder Ged. In the Cob's castle,Arren had reached the peak fear. Arren was given Hajia from Cob, he lost his sense, and he has leaked his "True name". As for the Cob, it knew Arren's "True name". so he came to be able to manipulate Arren.
