After accidentally awakening his nightmare magic in his family's library, he was imprisoned there for his own and others' safety. When other students are given the chance to practice their magic in the dungeons, they release him and he runs away. The Heroes of Trine follow him, fighting his and others' nightmares along the way, and try to convince him to come back with them.
