The Game of Life1896
By the time of The Game of Life (1896), Kareno is ten years older. He remains deeply involved in his philosophical studies and is now working as a tutor at the house of a Herr Oterman, in Nordland.
He has a round tower built and continues his studies there, but the tower burns down one night and Oterman’s two sons die. Oterman’s daughter, Teresita, who is in a relationship with Kareno, is responsible for the fire. She herself dies when shot by the blind soothsayer, Ty. Kareno’s wife, Elina, comes back to him almost immediately after this.
