Hoping for answers regarding Faen's departure, Ariel confronts Faen's former classmates.

Summary

Faen's Former Classmates

Vaelia talks to Ariel, concerned about her depression and well-being. She brings Ariel out of her rut by convincing Ariel to seek her friend out, giving Ariel the idea to confront Faen's classmates over what happened to cause her to flee. With Myo'na's and Jiv'kyns help, Ariel finds them.

Using her sorcery, Ariel disguises herself as Faen and lures Chrys'tel away from the group. Ariel fights and defeats her, but Chrys'tel's friends show up.

The Val'Kyorl'solenurn

Chirinide and two Templars of the Val'Kyorl'solenurn also show up. Chirinide gives the order to capture the group and the Templars chase after Kiel, Kyo'nne, Naal'suul and Shinae as they flee.

Chirinide introduces herself to Ariel and explains why she helped her before chastising Ariel for her recklessness. Chirinide also explains to Ariel what the red eyes and tainting mean.

Chrys'tel's Story

Chrys'tel agrees to tell Ariel the whole story regarding Faen's departure. She explains that Faen was highly stressed and paranoid. Chrys'tel decided to help by arranging a tainting ceremony, but right before they were about to begin, Faen suffered an empathic fit. Nihi'liir slapped her to snap her out of it but that made the fit worse. The teacher tried to intervene but everything went white at that point. When Chrys'tel came to, the teacher was brain-dead and Nihi'liir couldn't use her arm while Faen was swaying. When Faen regained her senses, she realised what she had done and fled.

After Chrys'tel finished her story, Ariel decides she won't kill her, remembering what happened with Maya, and instead gives the order to stop Chrys'tel's bleeding and capture her alive.

To Rescue Faen

Ariel returns to Orthorbbae to speak with Kel'noz and Tralyn. Tralyn agrees to give Ariel the information she needs to rescue Faen and convinces Kel'noz that for Ariel's sake, that instead of stopping her, to do everything he can to make sure Ariel and Faen successfully come back alive.
