In the aftermath of the battle, Remi helps free Zeke from where he’s been tied, and does her best to help him deal with the wounds. It’s not that serious, thankfully the Annointed were only trying to stop him from resisting.
Justice is furious with Zafir for failing to stop Echo, and for trying to kill Nightingale. The Annointed should’ve had tons of help when Echo attacked and won easily, but instead all but two of its members were killed thanks to his actions.
Zafir is unapologetic, agreeing with her conclusions but insisting that he knows what’s best. Charon is such a powerful enemy that any sacrifice is worth paying, even many lives.
Nightingale finally gets involved, reminding him that the ones he tried to murder are Elenia’s royalty. Balthazar would probably want him dead for no other reason.
Zafir agrees that all the charges are accurate. But he argues that him and the Anointed are the few keeping Elenia safe from Charon and the rest of his council. If he dies, then there won’t be anyone else fighting them, and all Elenia will eventually fall.
Damocles wants him dead, primarily for allowing his mother’s killer to escape. The Maluma hates Zafir, but argues that Nightingale should let him go instead.
Nightingale and Zeke must decide how to judge Zafir while they have the upper hand.
! Special: Justice is selectable again.
! Special: Zeke is selectable again.
! Decision: Recruit Zafir, kill him, or release him.
