The Captain’s daughter has become another victim of the Reachmen’s foul magics, even as we speak before the gates of Evermore the rotten Bloodthorn seed begins to take root deep in her heart. In what is painted as an honourable sacrifice, she allows the Wyress sister to kill her in front of her father and comrades before the corruption takes full hold.

I see no honour in this scene before me, just a meek surrender to fate; a soldier should either live with honour or die with honour.

I’d like to think that if I knew the coming hour of my doom I’d ring it in with a clash of my sword upon shield and take a few of those bastards with me, to at least inspire those comrades I leave behind, and perchance sate my vengeance enough that I might earn a more restful slumber beyond.
