In which it turns out everything might’ve been ok if Sedo had walked away and left Piers on the beach after all. Life is funny like that.

Like most things that come up in this comic- we WILL learn more about Ouri Soumbien monks as we go along! If you want a little more background though: they’re Elven monks trained in a particular martial art as well as a mysterious form of magic that allows them to “summon” an animal (usually a bird or predator of some kind). Some noble families, including the Ouri royal family, funded their own monasteries and had the monks trained for the specific purpose of being their bodyguards. That’s about as much as most folks in the comic know about them. Oh, and that the art was super outlawed when the For Mina swept up Ashwood province.
