This story was narrated by Sanderson Tavares. Sanderson Tavares is a Brazilian musician, translator, and copy editor, with a not-at-all-secret love for voice acting, a career that he's been pursuing ever since one of those infamous pandemic identity crises hit him in the head (We've all had those, right?!). If you can't find him on a stage playing bass with his pop-rock band Kenzzy, try looking for him on one of his 4 weekly RPG sessions, where his love of storytelling matches his nerdy interests in a perfect marriage.
