The death of his horse causing him to fly off and without truly understanding he uses Magi to slow his fall and then begins running into the hamlet where he is horrified to find bodies lying all over the place including his father in law of whom has been mutilated. Running further he falls to his knees as he sees the dead body of his beloved Myrcella and cradling her in his arms he lets out a cry of anguish as he is surrounded by the Inquisitors Men. Cradling the body of Myrcella in his arms he sobs through the laughter of the Inquisitor men surrounding him, and continues to sob as Inquisitor Grenlen lies a sword next to his next and prepares to execute him. As the sword raises and prepares to swing Ebrimund and Myrcella are pulled into the Fade itself by Flemeth who Ebrimund recognizes as his mother who he believes was still at the Trial of Rula Jocic. Flemeth reveals that the women on trial is just an imposter that she put in place so that when the sham court of her husband and Ebrimund's father Detrimund had her executed she would not be killed, and alongside this Flemeth reveals the depths of what Detrimund is responsible for including the Massacre of Hintler's Hamlet and the subsequent death of Myrcella. After Flemeth presents her ultimatum to Ebrimund he agrees and in return for Flemeth resurrecting Myrcella Ebrimund allows Flemeth to give him a piece of her power of which she does by uplifting him into something akin to a minor Man God. Having given him the power that she had long desired to hive him it was Flemeth that would pull back the soul of Myrcella into her fallen body and repairing the wounds to her flesh she used the spell she had crafted and turned the now returned Myrcella into the first Damphir. Ebrimund can feel that he has changed, but Flemeth councils him that at this moment his power while extremely powerful will nto be something he can control without help and so she gives both Ebrimund and Myrcella powerful armor and weapons and tells them to deal with the Inquisitors present. Ebrimund and Myrcella leave the Fade and find themselves back in the real world where no time appears to have passed, and thus having moved positions they cut there way into the group of Inquisitor soldiers killing several before they can even react to the ambush, but as the fight truly begins Myrcella is visibly faster then all the others and cuts them down one after another until only Inquisitor Grenlen is left and he falls to his knees begging for mercy. As Myrcella prepares to kill him it is Flemeth and a man who appear from the Fade and interrupt telling Myrcella what she already knew from the fight in that she is no longer only human but is now something more and call her the first of the Damphir. After explaining to her the effects of her being a Damphir they show her how to steal the essence of Inquisitor Grenlen who is held still by Ebrimund as Myrcella overcome with her desire for his soul uses her powers to pull Grenlen's soul from his body and without his soul Grenlen stands up becoming the first of the Pariah. With this done Flemeth disappears leaving just the man behind but he excuses himself alongside Grelen who is now little more then a husk of a person following their commands to leave them as Ebrimund joins Myrcella in finding her family amidst the ruins of Hintlers Hamlet. As Ebrimund and Myrcella finish burying her parents and siblings they turn to see a women on horseback come out of the forest and moving towards them, and as she moves hundreds upon hundreds of heavily armed men and women make their way out of the forest behind her.
