===Ariel's Depression===
[[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.

Not helping matters is the strict training regimen Ariel is subjected to under the [[Fallen Legion]]. Efforts by Vaelia to help were stifled by [[Jiv'kyn]], [[Myo'na]], and [[Ant'alya]], who barely tolerated Vaelia's presence in Ariel's midst, much less any physical contact. Vaelia's frustration grew as she considered the Fallen Legion to be protecting her with the callous nature of a jailor, while she was forced to watch her charge slowly wither and die.

===Confronting Chrys'tel===
[[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 [[Tainted| 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 Vel'Sharen|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.
