The Puppeteer Incident
As with most of the drow in the area, Al'tesh was caught up in what became known as the Puppeteer Incident. After the death of Kharla'ggen, those she had controlled regained the use of their bodies. Al'tesh saw the joint flare given by Quain'tana and Zala'ess, noting that the call-to-arms wasn't coming from the expected direction. After the Demon God was driven off by the combined might of the Sarghress and Sharen forces, he witnessed the birth of the new alliance as Zala'ess and Quain'tana solidified a tentative truce.
Sorn'mal and Al'tesh were assigned to guard Zala'ess as her infection progressed to a madness stage, with Nona'brail providing medical care. Zala'ess' most recent hallucination episode startled the two soldiers, prompting caution against letting word of her condition spread to the Sarghress. When Zala'ess recovered from her illness with the aid of a Jaal'darya treatment, Al'tesh followed the Empress as she was led by Wi'am to speak directly with Snadhya'rune.
Three days after Zala'ess' recovery, Sorn'mal and Chrys'tel go to question Nir'naya in her prison about Snadhya'rune's involvement with Zala's sudden questionable orders. Joined with Sarai they discover their former Captain beaten and without a tongue. It is there that the two are informed by Al'tesh that Zala'ess has declared Chrys'tel to be the new captain of the Imperial Guard, as part of a bargain made with Snadhya'rune..
