Characters in This Story

Lord Noriyuki and Tomoe stay overnight in Ikeda's home; though Ikeda is torn by his loyalties, he agrees to guide the pair on a remote mountain road.

Lord Kotetsu waits impatiently for Kitanamono to return with Grasscutter; as Usagi chases Ryoko's familiar, he runs into some of Kotetsu's samurai, kills them, and faints (with fatigue) at the sight of Gen.

Inazuma wakes, and learns from Priest Sanshobo that the figure in her dream was one of the two who brought her to the temple.

Next morning, as Ikeda and his son Motokazu set out with Tomoe and Noriyuki for the mountain road, both Noriyuki and Tomoe puzzle over him as Ikeda's wife hands him his swords.

And as Jei and Keiko talk in the woods, a mysterious "call" draws him away from her; unable to keep pace, she is soon left behind, lost.

Meanwhile, a roadblock forces Ikeda, Motokazu, Tomoe and Noriyuki from their original road; as they fight their way past a second roadblock, Ikeda's old leg injury allows one of the attackers to escape!

And, "much further south," Kitanamono examines the object he took from Usagi, and Jei finds the source of his summons.
