The dragon tattoo on Axetor’s chest that was placed there when he made a deal with Dontomi Padachi suddenly emerged from him as if becoming alive.The surviving members of the Band of the Wolf are instantly transported in a cloud to the Waping Piao Military Quarters. General Rusianus Vladetronus, Commander Kanaga Shigetsuna and Captain Pos Lio are there with their troops. Also present are Centurions Merkosasso and Okelucios Nalister with their legionaries, and about 600 soldiers of Ochalea and Thyatian Empire.
A body is in the floor and the sword of The General is bathed on blood, The Commander is bending over the body and stands up.
“ He was mumbling something. “
“ What was he mumbling? “ – askes The General
“ I lean over his and hear what was mumbling. It was a list of names. He just died. “
“ It was a genealogy from the first Archduke of Ochalea to her father. “ – exclaims The Captain.
“ Her father? What are you talking about, that was Troyus Machistes who I just killed for his crimes. “
“ She was reciting her geneology down to her father, Guin Po, Province Governor of the Celestial Territories. You just killed her daughter. “
" Zhang Ziyi Po! "
The fragile Lady had used her disguise to lure The General into killing her and spilling the Archiduke’s blood.
Dontomi Padachi: “ I’m here as representative of the Archduke of Ochalea, Teng Lin-Dieu. I’m his sword, I’m his arm, I’m his will. By the promise of the Emperor of the Thyatian Empire to the first Archduke of Ochalea, I’m here to impart the Emperor’s will and the Archduke’s will. I’m here to wield his sword and land the blow of justice. As it was written that no blood of the Emperor’s family should be spilled in Ochalea, and that the Archduke’s blood will be the Emperor’s blood. “
“ I know that you are soldiers under the command of this man, Rusianus Vladetronus. Some of you could feel that you are bound by duty to continue following his orders. For those who feel that way and will try to stop me, I’m here to tell you, you will die in honor. “
The Ochaleans and the Centaurs surrender. Dontomi asks the wounded Band of the Wolf to help him pass across the minotaur legionaries who are still protecting The General. Tired and still wounded by battling the Lupus Inferni, they do and he is able to claim The General’s head ending his reign of fear. They find a letter left by Zhang Ziyi Po.
" Don’t cry for me, every life is fragile
Every life is valuable not only mine
I grew in privilege of thousand clapping
But privileged is the flower under the rain.
I leave with only love as does the flower
As fragile as one of love is made
But I pinch the hand of the abuser
Like a green thorn made of jade.
So, the privilege that my end has given me
Is to die for my family and my land
To die for the people whose love is privilege
Like a flower catching the morning’s rain. "
On Zhang Ziyi Po’s funeral the Archiduke Teng Lin-Dieu is present, an epic level cleric and Raizak has the suspiction that the dragon spirit teleport spell was casted by him. " His involvement in all this was bigger than any one knows. " That’s how this generation’s Jade Princess is born.
The Band of the Wolf take a well earned rest of two weeks.
