Summary

WARNING!! MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!


Silver Wolf


The man known as Silver fights with demons from his past without knowning what they are. He lost his memory during some traumatic event, and was taken in by Ray. He now works with Ray to kill corrupt politicians and other powerful men. However, he has a very nihilistic outlook, believing he has nothing to live for, no matter how much Ray argues with him.

Meanwhile, the presidential candidate Barrault has been assassinated, but the only ones who know are his daughter Mirielle, her husband Jean Louis, and a few of Jean Louis' men. The quick to anger and devious Jean Louis has replaced Barrault with an easy to control look alike, telling Mirielle that it's what her father would have wanted. Mirielle doubts her husband more and more, but also fears his corrupt power over the police force and other institutions.

Silver fails to complete a mission, thrown into flashbacks when the man's wife and daughter plead for their lives. He lets them live, and now can be recognized. Ray tries to convince him to leave with himself and Simone and flee to Tunis.

And then one day, Silver sees Mirielle and Jean Louis and knows that with them lies the key to his memory. He refuses to leave with Ray, and instead kidnaps Mirielle at gunpoint. As the two talk, a terrible and dark picture of the past begins to emerge....
