  • I think this will do for now.

  • Tell your soldiers to rest up.

  • We'll enter the ruins at midnight when the shadows will be with us.

  • Yes, sir, right away.

  • Cornerstone Lusef-

  • 'Cornerstone?'

  • Athi, there is no need to be so formal with me.

  • You know this.

  • I know, sir, but it's only customary given your rank as a Cornerstone.

  • You might not mind, but we cannot lose face among so many other people.

  • Yeah, yeah

  • But what did you need?

  • I was just wondering

  • Do you really think we can take on whoever unlocked the Heijhan Trak?

  • Hmm…?

  • We've all heard how the only way to fight one of those spells

  • is with another Heijhan Trak

  • Do you think Emperor Idemni is going to try to unlock one of our own?

  • Maybe, maybe not.

  • It'll depend on how dangerous this person actually is.

  • I bet I could take him with one hand tied behind my back!

  • But

  • But what if you can't?

  • What if it isn't the Incarnation or Uraide or even Zirar?

  • What if it's…

  • What if it's what?

  • Then an unclean spiritcalling himself after the stars of the sky and after the curse

  • of the defiled templeshall overtake the fallen of New Light and claim to be as one

  • risen from the dead.

  • And he will lay waste to your sons and to the sons of Drakur and of Yudak and of Korh,

  • and to the sons of the inhabitants of the New City, and to-

  • What, the Advent of Kaylun?

  • If that heretic has finally decided to show his ugly head,

  • then he will be in for a real shock to discover me as his first true opponent.

  • Don't get cocky.

  • Cornerstone or not, a Heijhan Trak is still a very dangerous force to face.

  • Your arrogance is going to be the death of you.

  • Lieutenant Sintor

  • thank you for your concern, but I am very well accustomed to dealing with

  • high-priority criminals who wield more than your average Heiun and Makik spells.

  • My apologies, Cornerstone Lusef

  • But I have spoken with my soldiers to inform them of the situation.

  • They will be awaiting your orders and ready to begin the search tonight.

  • Good.

  • And remember that no one is to enter that building without my permission.

  • If all goes well, we'll find the perpetrator without having to resort to THAT.

  • Only if luck is on our side

  • But I fear this will be more difficult than the average capture or execution

  • Yeah, yeah, yeah

  • Curse of Kaylun and Tainted Power of the Gods

  • I need to rest up for tonight.

  • You can go now.

  • Very well, Cornerstone Lusef

  • Was that necessary?

  • She was only reminding you about what we're up against.

  • I don't care.

  • I don't need people who rank so much lower than me to tell me how to do my job.

  • I worked up to being a Cornerstone

  • I know how these things go.

  • Very well

  • Get some rest and I'll wake you when the hour draws near.

  • Nabu, hurry up!

  • We can't risk getting separated with those people after you!

  • I'm going as quickly as I can!

  • You know I can't use my fox form like the rest of you can when it's this hot!

  • The ruins probably aren't even cursed anyway

  • It's all just myths and legends

  • Then what about what happened with Uraide?

  • He killed the prince after that curse drove him mad!

  • And maybe Idier had it coming to him

  • The current royal family hasn't exactly been a favorite of the people in recent times...

  • Yeah, well what about Zirar?

  • Oh I'm sure we'd get along real well

  • She'd probably even be worshipping at my feet.

  • One day I hope someone shoves his fluffy tail down his mouth for once.

  • We risked a lot saving him back there

  • N-Nuraiah?

  • How did you and Zjhiben escape O-Jhenbel?

  • Do you really want to know?

  • I don't remember much.

  • It started like an explosion.

  • Everything was so hazy...

  • Zjhiben?!

  • Zjhiben where are you?!

  • Over here!

  • I don't think it's broken, but hurry!

  • I guessyou'll have to chew through my leg...

  • But you'll have to promise to take care of your crippled brother forevermore.

  • Really, now of all times??

  • I justdon't want the people to remember me as

  • a gloomy stick in the mud!

  • I wasn't going to leave him.

  • I couldn't bring myself to.

  • I was ready to face whatever was to come.

  • After that, we ran.

  • The dust that jackal's magic kicked up provided us the cover we needed to get out

  • of there without anyone seeing us.

  • But it was

  • Unsettling.

  • The raw force of that lightning was greater than anything I'd ever seen before or since.

  • And the eyes were sounnatural.

  • It was like looking into the eyes of a dead man.

  • Sounds like you saw a Soul Rend.

  • I fought one once.

  • Nasty things, those are...

  • Who-?!

  • Nabu, what are you doing…?!

  • Look at him!

  • He bears the emblem of Norsen!

  • It's not a curse!

  • I told you it wasn't!

  • Norsen is trying to hide something from us and he's the proof of it!

  • Just how stupid are you?

  • No, this is a serious question!

  • You, the infamous red-eyed fya, just attacked someone who you think is stationed

  • here by Norsen to kill anyone who gets close!

  • If that's the case and I am alone, wouldn't that mean they sent someone powerful

  • enough to be trusted to deal with greater threats than a pipsqueak

  • like you?

  • No, be quiet!

  • Furthermore, if Norsen has made your capture their utmost priority,

  • why I even alert you to my presence in the first place?

  • None of you noticed me, yet I have been watching you since before

  • you even entered Kaylun!

  • Yes

  • I am originally from Norsen

  • but I'm not going back to a city full of

  • liars, hypocrites, and traitors

  • Just who are you?

  • Me?

  • You can call me Athyir.

  • That's... That is not what I meant!

  • You just walked through lava without being burned! You-!

  • ...have a Heijhan Trak

  • And you admit to it?

  • Just like that?

  • The Empire would have you executed!

  • Oh, they have many other reasons to wish for that...

  • We never expected to run into anyone here...

  • Are you alone?

  • I am alone, but the red-eyed kid wasn't too far off

  • with his theories

  • There were guards from Norsen stationed here when I arrived,

  • but lucky for you I already killed them all.

  • And you did that all by yourself…?

  • It's really not that difficult.

  • I was speaking more in terms of conscience and morality

  • You think I had a choice?

  • It was either me or them.

  • Besides, I'd say it benefited the whole lot of you.

  • You said it yourself that you didn't expect to meet anyone here,

  • let alone soldiers from Norsen.

  • They say that anyone who goes too deep into the secrets of these ruins

  • is put under a curse that drives them insane.

  • That's why Norsen guards this place isn't it?

  • Yet you killed them all...

  • Was it to find out what was hiding in the secrets of Kaylun?

  • Why else?

  • I could even give you a tour of the place if you wanted.

  • No, I don't think that will be necessary

  • You said it yourself how easy it would have been to catch us by

  • surprise before we could have reacted to your presence

  • No matter why you were cast out of Norsen

  • even with a Heijhan Trak

  • I'm sure they would have welcomed you back with open arms had you done that

  • So why didn't you?

  • It's not as simple as that

  • What do you mean?

  • 'And his eyes burn red with the fires of the Nameless God.'

  • What?

  • That's what the Oracle said in his prophecy, right?

  • You never thought there was anything strange about that line?

  • But the Oracle wasn't the one who-
