Tales from Earthsea

Synopsis: Something bizarre has come over the land. The kingdom is deteriorating. People are beginning to act strange... What's even more strange is that people are beginning to see dragons, which shouldn't enter the world of humans. Due to all these bizarre events, Ged, a wandering wizard, is investigating the cause. During his journey, he meets Prince Arren, a young distraught teenage boy. While Arren may look like a shy young teen, he has a severe dark side, which grants him strength, hatred, ruthlessness and has no mercy, especially when it comes to protecting Teru. For the witch Kumo this is a perfect opportunity. She can use the boy's "fears" against the very one who would help him, Ged.

Only in silence the word,

only in dark the light,

only in dying life:

bright the hawk's flight

on the empty sky.

- The Creation of a

Ease the sail!

It's blowing too hard!

Curse it! A storm this time of year?

Where's my Weatherworker?

What are you waiting for?

Calm the waves before we sink!

What's wrong?

Captain... I can't remember them.

I can't remember the True Names

of wind and waves.

What? Are you mad?


There's something above the clouds!


What is that?

A dragon!

What is it doing here?

There's another one!

Dragons fighting? That's impossible!

More than 2, 000 sheep

have taken the fever in Enlad alone.

Half of them have died.

Seven hundred cattle

have been infected.

We've lost 50 head so far.

In fact, a baby on Taon

has also come down with the fever.


If we panic,

what will become of the People?

Seal off the affected areas.

Send every healer

in the kingdom to find a cure.

Send provisions

to those who need them.

Wizard Root!

Find out what's behind this.

Your Majesty.

And the drought

in the provinces?

We sent Weatherworkers

but the results were disappointing.

Soon it may be too late

for the spring planting.

Why have these misfortunes

befallen us, Root?

I sense the Light dimming,

Your Majesty.

The Light?

The Light of the Balance

that sustains the world.

Your Majesty!

What now?

Terrible news!

Dragons have been sighted

off the coast!

- Dragons?

- Two, Majesty. One was killed.

Dragons here, in the East?

Can this really be true?

Long ago, dragons

and men were one.

But men who coveted possessions

chose the land and the sea.

Dragons who wanted freedom,

chose wind and fire.

Since then, dragons and men

remained apart.

To hear that dragons have been seen,

and were even fighting...

The twilight that threatens

us is ever deepening.

Bring the captain to me.

I would hear more of this.

Root, I want you there too.

Please... Your Majesty!

- We'll get in trouble!

- I have to!

- What is it?

- Have you seen Prince Arren?

He's been gone since last night.

Prince Arren? Gone?

That's enough.

His Majesty is occupied.

Surely you can see that.

Forgive me.

It's just... he seems so sad lately.

We were worried.

That's absurd!

Arren is 17, not a child.

Forgive this disturbance, Your Majesty.

Your people are more important.

- Very well, then.

- Your Majesty.

I must tend

to my correspondence.

We await your command, sire.

I'm imagining things.


So you are my death...

Are you hurt?

Steady there, lad!

Is this what you seek?

This is dangerous country

for travelers.

You were lucky this time.

You must be hungry.

It's not much,

but you're welcome to it.

What is your name, lad?

My name is Arren.

Arren, is it?

It means sword, doesn't it?

So you hail from Enlad.

How did you know?

That blade

was forged with magic.

I doubt you could unsheathe it.

What is it?

It's nothing.


If you have nowhere to go,

why not come with me?

I doubt our meeting here

was an accident.

And I'd welcome

a companion on the road.

Arren! Are you coming?

What should I call you?

Call me Sparrowhawk.

Another abandoned farm.

Farmers leaving their land...

There's more to this

than poor harvests.

Come, Arren.

We'd better push on.

Lord Sparrowhawk?

Sparrowhawk will do.

What is it?


Where are we heading?

First. we go to the next town.

But after that...

...even I don't know.

- Getting tired?

- No.
