Once upon a time there was a spy.
And everyday he would spy on people, searching for ways to hook someone in, taking advantage of them and creating ‘favors’ they would owed him.
Until one day he was caught spying on the wrong person, and a reward was offered for his capture.
And because of this he went on the run trying to hide from the multitude of people chasing him.
And because of this he had to use every available resource and ‘favor’ from previous activities to try to stay ahead of everyone.
Until finally, out of ‘favors’ and resources he had no place left to run or hide. The last thing he saw before they caught him was a bright light.
And ever since that day he’s been working for his prior target, spying on his competitors and adversaries. The price of his life is measured in the resources he can provide.
