“Edain was nowhere to be found in Evans Castle. She had already been taken deep into Verdane territory. Verdane existed under the cover of a thick forest. In the past, Verdane's frequent encroachment of the border earned them the label of barbarians by the people of Grannvale. Under the reign of King Batou, Verdane witnessed a cessation of all fighting along the border. The amiable monarch succeeded in maintaining the peace with Grannvale, while pacifying his zealous sons. However, that very peace was ultimately violated by none other than King Batou. The king ordered his three sons to invade Grannvale. There was Cimbaeth of Genoa, the eldest son, Munnir of Marpha, and Jamke, the youngest of the three. Using the forest as cover, the savages awaited Sigurd's arrival.
