All in front of Karter's eyes.From that day Karter was raised and trained by the old Makim, ex-mercenary and friend of his mother, with his niece Dalia in Tursa, Makim's hometown very far from the capital.
Karter now eighteen, holds a lot of grudge towards the emperor for what he did, has been training for eight long years to take revenge on Surtur and is now ready to travel to Stora.Makim is now stuck in bed and getting closer to his end, but before leaving he gives Karter a necklace with a cylindrical white stone that belonged to his late mother Sara, and advises him not to lose it for any reason.
The next day after Makim passed away, Karter prepares to leave, but Dalia in tears, urges him to stay, does not want to lose another person important to her. Karter hugs Dalia and says "I'll be back I promise".
