The Obsessed Athlete
"And it's not for the sake of a ribboned coat, or the selfish hope of a season's fame, but his Captain's hand on his shoulder smote -- 'Play up! play up! and play the game!'"
– Henry Newbolt, "Vitaï Lampada"

You were born into privilege, but it wasn't until you discovered sports that you found your true calling. Your success on the field is your reason for being - the only thing that gives you a sense of purpose and fulfilment. Fiercely competitive, you refuse to accept anything less than victory. But as the years have passed, your performance has suffered, leading you to turn to drugs to maintain your edge. Now, as your addiction spirals out of control, you must confront the true cost of your obsession before it devours everything you hold dear.
