"I swear by Apollo Physician and Asclepius and Hygieia and Panaceia and all the gods and goddesses, making them my witnesses, that I will fulfill according to my ability and judgment this oath and this covenant."
Yoshikage Kira aims to be a doctor some day; he has the smart and skill for it. Yet he still lingers on the thought of taking someone from Death's grip. What does it mean, to save someone's life? Are you responsible for them? Or do they owe you forever?
At 15 and almost by chance, Yoshikage saves his first life, that of a boy who was devoured by the wild sea. This random meeting settled their distant fates, but back in 1997 they were just a deadpan teenager and his sassy sister trying to cheer up a lonely kid stuck in the hospital.
