Sebastian spent weeks evading the forces of the Turric invaders. Finally, she was able to rescue Lord Essetria and bring him safely to the City of Celika. There she was rewarded handsomely for her efforts and there was talk of making her a Knight of the Realm. At first she wanted to refuse but realized that her position would be helpful in the future.

Newly knighted, Lady Sebastian was given barding for her mount Arbalest and given five days of rest.

On the fifth day she is polishing her weapons and armor when a loud knock heralds a visitor.
