The Estorean Conquord has stood for years. Thus he becomes the first Battle Priest of the Source. Jonat is the man who despises all nobles and Sarvaj is honorable man who disapporoves the fact Gellan strives to make Jonat into a leader - knowing that Jonat has absolutely no respect for Gellan and that he hates every single noble that exists. Seeking ways out of this, he orders the tribe travel to the Mountains of the Moon and sends the tribeswoman Shia to find and bring back her brother, the powerful warrior Belash.
