PANEL 1

The genvri were swarming...as wild things did whenever Bala was near.

For each one Avestine dispatched, another arrived. But she knew her rage could outlast their hunger.

That's why Bala would one day serve Arujan again.

PANEL 2

Some of the genvri seized a soldier. The rest lost interest in her and followed the meat.

PANEL 3

Rook intruded into Avestine’s thoughts. As angry as he was at her recklessness, he was more anxious that she remain unharmed.

She sneered at his concern.

AVESTINE: Are you frightened, Essanti? This is merely a welcome. What else can we expect from that BITCH, except chaos?

PANEL 1
The small party headed up the mountain and made camp. After a MEAL of smoked fish, Rook wandered into the forest. Avestine retired to her tent.
Avestine rarely slept, but when she did, her dreams were filled with the past...
PANEL 2

That night, she was back in the Trade Quarter on the run from her brother.
Kami was with her. She had not yet acquired all the pieces of the spirit that would make her a god.

PANEL 3

Even before power had settled on Kami, she was a wild creature bred from chaos.
It was what Avestine hated about her. It was what she loved.
