Biography

When the party arrived El Ciclo, they discovered that the village seems to not face any immediate threat. And they find out that a bridge designed by Pomposo the architect will have a grand opening tomorrow. After spending one night in the inn, they discover that the guards tell them that the opening of the bridge is at the next day. They then spend another night, only to find out the grand opening is still the day after, and some unique events that transpired the day before happen again in the same fashion. It is when they realized El Ciclo is trapped in a infinite time loop, with The Time Being being the one behind it. The party then seek help from Pomposo, who gives them a key to the village's clock tower. After pulling a switch in the tower, the time of El Ciclo completely freezes, and a mysterious painting of the clock tower at Dr. Salvador's house begins glowing ominously. After approaching the painting, they are warped to a dimension called the Time Frame, where they meet The Time Being and his underlings, two little devils called Side Winders.

They get into a battle, and The Time Being is defeated. Before dying, The Time Being also accidentally leaked the way to break loop. Thus the party is able to break the infinite time loop and saved El Ciclo.
