For a mistake he did, he suffer greatly, he has lost everything. Even if he could turn back time, can he still make things right?
But alas, he was given a chance, a chance that nobody in the world would know. But that was the downfall, to his opinion. He would only be known as an observer, advisor and at times, just a protector. Doing so much or so little would jeopardize this new found chance, chance that he would not want to lay a waste.
But because of the condition that was set forth, he starts to wander aimlessly. There is no definite future to this. Is it? He feels so hopeless that he started to wander of alone, to fill in his hopelessness. He misses his town dearly, and felt he was left behind. The town where he resides is just a temporary stop, no indication that it will be a permanent thing. He is now townless to say the least.
Maybe he should go to a new town, or country or even a planet if that is possible. It would do him good.
