A small unassuming bracelet made of silver and appearing slightly tarnished. When worn it allows the wearer to become invisible. However, this only works when the individual is in the shadows/darkness. Any light will render the magic useless.

Your second reading was right. Eventually he'll have given up the pre-agreed upon story, when he feels that he can no longer hold on. This pre-agreed upon story being more plausible, but still not the truth.
Perhaps him coming home, having served for 9, possibly 10, years. His struggle with life on civvy street, diagnosis with PTSD.
I can't remember where I was going with this one. Perhaps with a few more ideas he can be rescued and made into a proper sub. Go to Comment

A wild species, vinus homophagus, more akin to sea-grape rather than the terrestrial variety, is not a monster despite its fanciful name. The grapes, a deep purple color when in bloom, and oozing dewdrops of perspiration, like the most prized and delectable of drinking wine grapes, do however deserve their moniker. Wine made from this fruit, is deadly to most humanoids, as is the raw berry if plucked and eaten from the vine. It is the unnatural chemical concoction found within the fruit’s tart skin, which gives the man-eating grape its name. The chemical stew found inside each berry, functions as a necrotic agent, the same as found in some species of venomous snakes.
The grapes literally eat their victims from the inside out, via cell death, melting and destroying the organs in quick succession.
The tribes of Pra-Oohk Crater, of the jungles of Ghlush are known to sell the fermented “wine” of this grape to merchants of distant lands. Sadly, the taste of the concoction is divine when first quaffed, and even worse, the man-eating grape wine will never detect as poisonous via mundane means, its horrid natures somehow masking all attempts. Luckily the man-eating grapes are extremely rare, and endemic to humid jungles.
