Mr, Cougar knows the time of his death.
The Timeman can trap and enslave his soul.
However, souls are community entities not a metaphysical item the Timeman should control.
Due to knowing the time of his imminent demise, Mr. Cougar wants to give his loving family and dearest friends a farewell to remember. Without fear he also tells his precious daughter, who is thrown into a state of bewilderment, caught between love and community reprisal.
Since death cannot be commanded, the unknown fore of the Timeman wields it, and Mr. Cougar is an unequal adversary. The Timeman manifests himself as the Destroyer, and yet he also keeps the souls he collects. In this struggle the two, protagonist and antagonist, seek the truth between the mind and the body, using the soul as the prize.
