Setting: Urban Fantasy
Plot: A man fell in love with a woman. She was powerful, ambitious, strong willed. A dabbler in the mystic. She loved him back, and they planned on marrying - until a foreigner came by their village. He and the girl spent more and more time together, every time the couple saw each other, she was exhaused and distracted, as if she would rather be somewhere else.
He knew there was something between the two, but assumed it was matters of the heart. He didn't like it, but couldn't do anything about it. He was incorrect.
On the eve of the new moon, the girl returned to him, tired, but focused on him. They talked and laughed like the stranger had never come. She made him food, and they ate - the man not realising he had eaten his last meal. It was poisoned.
While he was unconscious, his beloved and the stranger carried him from the village, into the wilds, to the standing stones. There, they worked dark magics. At the climax of the ceremony, the girl killed her love. His soul was caught and harnessed, locked in the smallest bone of his little finger and used by the woman he loved to power her magical acts.
The girl left the village that same night, but the stranger stayed, returning to the circle the next night, taking parts from the corpse and turning what was left to dust.
The girl moved through the world, carrying the bone everywhere she went until, a few decades after murdering her lover, she was attacked, and she lost the bone.
Over several months, the bone gathered power. A little over a year later, it burst with energy, drawing in natural elements to form a body. A homunculus with a mind and drive to reconstruct his body.
He has wandered the earth for 2000 years, trying to find his scattered remains. He has been known to the wizards and magi of the continents for centuries, but they have never tried to help him, fearing the wrath of those who killed him - until now. A young woman with a common enemy seeks him out. She is cursed with a literally deadly (look/touch/kiss - whoever plays her can pick) and hopes to shake it off by killing the man responsible.
