Leave me.

Hal, my son,

when you read this letter I shall be dead.

I leave you the throne of Hebalon.

You have not yet been to war

and been part of the evil

that has darkened our lives for centuries,

the ancient hatred between us

and the Zeriths,

in which I myself played such a large part.

I cannot forgive myself.

I wish to die, Hal.

Do what I could not.

create peace and justice

between ourselves and the Zeriths.

But beware of Nezo, my wicked brother,

and his treacherous henchman Ghrak.

As for your sister,

do not let her leave your side.

Guard her more closely than your life.

My son, it is time now

that I cut my head-string

and end my life.

A life that has taken so much,

but given so little.

"My wicked brother..."

You get a mention too, Ghrak.

What an honour, Nezo.

This is our chance.

So you think that death will set you free,

dear brother?

It won't be that easy.

Your miserable suicide

will be our little secret.

So, what shall we tell your beloved son?

We'll tell him, that this night

the Zeriths have murdered his father.

No, not just the Zeriths, but Sahro,

their brutal and much-feared leader.

You see, dear brother?

You and I are bound together.

And you will be the one

to rule Hebalon.

Not your spoilt, gilded, self-obsessed,

arrogant and childish son.

Let us fetch the golden boy.

It's time for him to be off

and avenge his father's death.

Hal Tara,

you pitiful wretch,

what is yours shall be mine.

Have I not waited long and patiently.

I have lived in your shadow like trash.

Like the dirt you tread

on with gilded feet.

Hal!

Erito! What are you doing here?

You have to come with me...

It's your father.

My father? What has happened?

Jhinna.

Hal! The Zeriths have murdered

our father.

Look. their mark.

Sahro?

They have cut him down, all of him.

Not one of his strings is left.

Father!

The Kharo is dead.

Close the gates, seal all exits.

Hebalon has asked for peace,

but Sahro and his fanatical

horde of Zeriths

have sent us a clear message.

There will be no peace.

No one can feel safe now.

Tell the people to stay indoors!

Hebalon is at war!

Mother, I'm stuck! I can't get down!

Come on. That's it. This way.

Hal Tara, this is ridiculous!

Keep the mask on! You're Sahro!

Come on!

This mask doesn't make me Sahro,

and it doesn't make you a mighty warrior.

Hal. Stop.

Listen to me!

What are you doing?

What are you doing?

If I had really been Sahro, you wouldn't

just have lost your hand, there.

You'd have lost your head-string.

I almost had you.

This is serious business, Hal.

You're the Kharo's son, not a warrior.

I am a General.

Let my men take care of the Zeriths.

Stay here, Hal.

You're going to be the Kharo.

Dream on, Erito. You wooden head.

Hal, my son,

when you read this letter I shall be dead.

Father!

What is happened?

- Nothing.

- But your hand?

Mind your own business.

Erito will take care of it.

Attention, you lot!

You're in luck, Sir, we've got pretty much

everything in stock right now.

Hands, feet, good strong knees,

sturdy thighs.

Stand still for the General!

We found this one up North

of the Nordessa Forest.

Good climate up there,

so he ain't got no rot on him.

What d'you need?

- A hand.

- Who for?

- Hal Tara.

- Oh well, take a look at this one, then.

Pure oak that is, last a lifetime.

Ready for painting, Haven't seen hands

good as that in a long while.

I'll take it.

The whole world wounds with you,

my children.

The unthinkable has happened,

and a great disaster has overtaken us.

Lie still, will you?

We have searched the entire city.
