Jumping to the future, we see a Suleiman, now a young man and a student at the Council's military school, and his betrothed Sali of the kingdom of Iladion, talking about their future and reminiscing about their first days at the academy.
Pursuing his dream, Suleiman opts to remain at the academy to become a full Knight / Judge like his father was during the First War. Sali on the other hand, still disgusted at how their respective kingdoms are treated as second class members of the council before they joined and even now, decides to return back home. With war brewing between the old kingdom Nobles and the Council, because of new policies and alliances, the lovers are separated for the first time since they were kids.
