- The mage taunts Tethys by showing her that he has turned Fenrick into a mindless undead creature
- The mage unveils his master plan to start a war by having Tethys, on their wedding night, murder the man she is arranged to marry. He claims that he will destroy Fenrick's soul (which he apparently exacted from the body) if she does not go through with it.
