Some people have the power to enter other people's minds and manipulate memories. Their power has been used to cover up mysteries, cases and even assassinations. These powers can not only destroy other people's spirits but also erode the users heart at the same time. The users had to protect their fragile and insecure hearts, as if chained to each other. They are called "pets" out of fear and disdain.
