Barely surviving the hit Brother Hugo has ordered on his life, Gervase abandons the Knights of God as quickly as he joined them. He finds Julia, but the woman who has been caring for her is mortally injured in the crossfire. All but one of the Knights trying to ensure Gervase’s assassination are killed, and Gervase wounds the last one and sends him back to base with a message: if Brother Hugo wants Gervase dead, he’ll have to come to the wasteland to see to it personally. The wounded man’s return to Mordrin’s HQ further confirms the prior’s suspicions that Hugo is actively working against him, rather than simply being a bumbling idiot. Gervase’s bittersweet reunion with Julia is cut short by more danger: one of the more recklessly violent resistance cells is pursuing Gervase, still believing him to be a Knight.
