To spare his allies,Arithon is forced to use his mage talent to kill. And in the aftermath of this massive insult to his royal giftof compassion, he loses access to all facets of his trained mastery. Survivors of the debacle madepossible by his sacrifice include fourteen young boys, named as Companions, and Earl Jieret, twelveyears of age, who becomes Arithon's 'shadow behind the throne' - or
