The Band of the Wolf travel from the Village of Kuroiwa across the Mountains of Ice to try to find the Ice Caves of the Quikasa and continue their trek to find the Onedea and his Quikasa Gnolls. They know Yeng Lo Zhung is not far behind so they decide to use strategy to continue their mission.
Toupil’s Band of Rebels of the Shima Rebellion will make Yeng Lo Zhung and the dangerous Boryoku to find each other. This could prove to be a good distraction for both of them and they could continue searching for Onedea. First Raizak will use a Weather Control spell to make Yeng Lo Zhung lose their track then the Rebels will make the armies of their enemies find each other.
The strategy works fine enough for Toupil, Sangyeng and the Band of the Wolf to find Onedea’s Lair and track him to a dangerous place on the Mountians of Ice were he was travelled to offer some treasures as tribute to one of the dangerous monsters of the area. The Jade Princess was one of these treasures.
The Band of the Wolf followed and ambushed Onelea, after thoughfull preparation and a motivational speech from Frutumal.
During the battle a cart with many banners arrived to the scene. The driver, a dwarf, jumped and turned into a huge demon. More small small demons appear from the cart and ran to steal the treasures. A voice declared: " Onedea, your death doesn’t end our agreement. Those treasures are mine or I will take the soul of your men. " The Gnolls shivered in fear of the voice and acted to defend the demons that were taking the treasures attacking the Band of the Wolf with fierce blood motivated by their fear more than their loyalty to their fallen leader.
Yoshirou was able to escape away with The Jade Princess. The rest had to choose between leaving some of them behind to die in the claws of the demons or risk all of them dying. They stayed and were able to kill the demon.
Inside the cart Troyus found a prisoner. A princess dressed in very valuable clothing wrapped in thick ropes. " You have saved me, honrable warrior, please tell me your name and those brave ones who accompany you. "
" My name is Troyus Bloodstone and this are my soldiers. "
" Then, " answered the prisoner changing into an horrendous monstrous version of herself, half snake and half woman " now I know the name of he who dare oppose me, The Devil Demon Kana. "
The woman who was commanding the demons disappeared on a cloud of smoke and sulfur.
The Band of the Wolf leaved the place with treasures and Onedea’s head on a bag toward the Village of Howaito Rokku.
The ghost of his brother Takashi Nakajima appear to him, now revitalized. Yoshirou told him: " I’m not looking for this responsibility, I cannot be part of the Shima Rebellion like you. I’m not into politics. " Takashi’s ghost answered: " You don’t have to be. You did something greater for your brother’s soul and that is bigger than honor, that’s love. "
