We find our protagonist embracing a profound change. Both in his spirit and his flesh. Spiritually, one could say that the priesthood of Sithis has been born within Fleet Featherstone.
We hear much of Fleet's thoughts about events happening within the Dark Brotherhood, the Old Ways of the Night Mother and the Five Tenents.
We begin by hearing the words of Fleet's follower Valfar, who was witness to the encounter with Sithis. As the two ride for Whiterun, Fleet readies himself for a showdown with Gaius Maro.
The scene opens with tranquility as Fleet stands on the shores of a lake, a Nirnroot glowing before him. Unknown to him, a wraith-like figure watches from a distance, wreathed in darkness that seems alive.
Fleet undergoes a physical transformation to match the spiritual transformation that is taking place and will continue to take place within him as he grows.
