Chari sped off towards Jarrow to ensure the security of Esper Sherman and her men. Upon arriving at Alderth Hold she found a portion of the garrison at odds with a group of cultists holed up in one of the outbuildings. Smashing through the roof and killing one of their members, Chari convinced the group to surrender before dashing off to the tower. She found the head of guard dispatch battling two more cultists. The warrior and the young monk made quick work of them and, in the brief moments following, Chari brought her up to speed on the situation.
Meanwhile, Sir Bartleby and Jinn brought Micah’s body to the Temple of Sarenrae. Jinn demanded a few of the recovering Kordites in the temple find Kamin and put her in touch with them. Baffled and somewhat taken aback, they agreed. Chari returned as Wilwood prepared the ritual, finally allowing an opportunity to properly meet the woman who had saved their lives. Her name was Mani. And she was Jinn’s sister.
With the sigils complete, the remaining Dragon Punchers surrounded their fallen friend. Each, in turn, offered something up to bring back the soul of their companion. Tense moments passed. Finally, Micah gasped for air and color returned to his cheeks, though he still did not wake. Bart summoned Marley and the group returned to the Wilmont-Burke estate to recover.
That evening, the adventurers requested Lady Anjah Wilmont-Burke and her wife Tabitha Burke join them at the estate. The party was joined by another unexpected guest—-Zaahir Mara’hid. The Dragon Punchers were terribly excited to see not only their friends but to meet another member of Jinn’s newly-revealed royal family. The festivities continued well into the night until, one-by-one, the heroes retired to a well-earned night’s sleep.
