Heppin Vertigo, Lemartes Mors, and Thorn Jupiterspite became aware of themselves and made themselves a home near the graveyard of a small elven town. After saving the town from bloodhawks and helping to bring a body back from a swarm of cockatrices, they went to sleep again. Upon awakening, they left their tree to find that the young girl, Della, had run away. They found the girl approaching wild animals, and immediately entered battle to protect her. The monster which emerged attempted to run away with the child, but her mother appeared to stop him. After removing its eyes, they attempted to revive Isendra, but the troll revived and ran away, but Thorn and Lemartes chased after it and knocked it down again.
