Wendelin and his friends are invited to his brother Erich’s wedding. An undead dragon attacks their airship so Brantack has Wendelin purge the dragon with holy magic before collecting the valuable bones and crystal heart. In the capital city, Stuttburg, Brantack leaves them with his friend Aruterio Marchen. Soldiers take Wendelin to meet the king, who rewards him with the Twin Dragon medal and the noble rank of Baronet. Erich worries as their father is only a knight, meaning Wendelin will be removed from their family tree to become head of his own noble family. Several officials begin arguing how much to pay Wendelin for the bones and heart. Aruterio explains that Cardinal Hohenheim wants Wendelin under the churches influence, Lord Marshall Edgar wants him for the military, and Lord Commissioner Ruckner wants to save money. In the end Wendelin is paid 150,000 gold.
