Theron gazed forward in darkness. The icy winds slapped him several times in his face, but he remained vigilant. He would not go into the Wolfpacks camp with his head directed at the ground. He would walk into their camp with pride and honor, for he knew that he was doing the right thing. Vilen and Allison had been whispering behind him for some time but Theron didn't cared for it too much.

"Kids these days." He thought and a smile grew over his once sad face. His mind raced back to the events in Newhaven once more. How he had killed that vault keeper, stopped to take a drink at the Wolfpack's Inn, being mocked by Evin and challenged him to a duel, the conversation with Crystal, the burning Inn and his close-to-death experience. His thoughts lingered a long time on this matter. What if he had never stopped by that Inn? What if Crystal had never arrived at the point she had? What if the guards had never put the Inn on fire? So many paths unchecked and so little time to explore them further. Well, it didn't matter now did it? Within minutes Daniela and her assassins would surround him, he would be brought to his knees and be judged for all his crimes. All he hoped for was that they could forgive him once he was dead.

He had now reached the centre of the camp, by the camp fire. He faced Allison and Vilen and nodded at them. After a couple of minutes the campfire was surrounded by countless eyes and they all stared at Theron. Who was this man that Allison and Vilen had captured? What crimes had he committed against the world? Where's Dani in all of this? While all these questions ran from one mind to another amongst the actives and the recruits, Theron remained firm and still. He was still thinking back to the events that had happened.

He was suddenly walking on the streets of Newhaven, heading for the assassins secret exit with Allison and Vilen. They had just left the house and the hunters each step was heavy as he walked closer and closer to his ultimate fate. Then he was stopped by someone screaming his name from behind. It was Evin and he apologized for what he had said and how he acted in the Inn to which Theron smiled before answering Evins question.

"In the beginning there was five great ones. But in the end remains now only two of them. In the first one to fall you shall find your friend, unharmed yet changed." Theron said, leaving Evin with a riddle to solve. He personally knew that he had left Perry in the ruins of Blackhurst to die. But a group of healers travelling from a distant land had found him there and nursed him back to health. They now had a small camp in the ruins of Blackhurst where travellers can stop and buy medical supplies as well as medical services for money. Theron had discovered this and decided to watch Perry's progress. He had watched his old enemy turn from a naive assassin to a humble and respected healer. It was just too bad that he couldn't be there and see Evin's face expression when he would discover the truth about his friends non-violence codex. Priceless.

Suddenly Theron's mind went back to reality. He found himself down on his knees and before him stood Dani and behind her Sebastian. His moment of truth was here.
