Standing on the observation deck of his palace, Kristo learns that Nelty is one of the eight travelers who has set out to stop Quaker. Kristo remembers banishing Nelty from Vitaire long ago for being a ‘loose cannon’. After hearing of Nelty’s bravery, Kristo can only hope he will have the opportunity to apologize to his fellow Mort and reward him for his bravery. Kristo then orders Dulgry to gather all guards and he will address them as a whole in the courtyard later.
Reamy and Zytor inform Kristo that they must return to the Doomsday Device in preparation (and in hopes) of Marky, Slash & Levy’s return with the heatseeker.
